One of the most beautiful lakes in the country is a short drive from my home. The Appalachian Mountains and the Cherokee National Forest hug the shores of Watauga Lake. It is the TVA’s highest-elevated reservoir in Tennessee. Surrounded by densely forested mountains, Watauga Lake sits 1,959 feet above sea level.
The lake is a splendid location for sailing because of the challenge of wind direction changes created by the mountains. It is also the perfect place to have a picnic, kayak, paddleboard, fish, waterski, hike, or snap photos for your blog.
As always, my adventure partner and I dressed in classic, comfortable favorites to stay warm for our drive by the lake on a sunny but brisk day. Our date included getting take-out from Gourmet & Company for a lovely evening meal in my home.
This week, I’m giving away the beautiful scarf pictured below in warm earthy blue and tan tones. It measures fifty-two inches across, and it is a very soft georgette fabric that can be worn even in summer. Leave a comment below to enter the giveaway. Mr. Mickey will randomly choose a comment, and I’ll announce the winner on Thursday as I share another local adventure with you.

Beautiful lake, beautiful scarf!
My favorite colors.
Beautiful views. I love all things water related.
Susan, I just love how you two enjoy each others company so much ❤ do you know how special that is?
I am very grateful to have such a kind and interesting person to share life’s adventures with.
What a beautiful setting by the lake. I love to read about your adventures. Beautiful scarf too.
Water pictures are soothing to the soul.
Such a lovely scarf. Thanks for the chance, it would be such a beautiful addition to anyone’s wardrobe.
If anything positive has come out of the covid pandemic it is a renewed appreciation of the simple joys in life-home cooked meals and family discussions, car trips and hiking beautiful local scenery, learning to enjoy a slower paced lifestyle.Thank you and Mickey for sharing how you have successfully adjusted to changing times and for setting an example for all of us that there’s good times in even the hard times.
Gorgeous location! I am always drawn to bodies of water- must be the calming effect and its ever-changing appearance. I’d be interested to know how many acres Watauga Lake covers and the depth of its deepest part. I enjoy your blog for the adventures. I admire your ability to put outfits together and the reasoning behind them. I however struggle with this for myself.
Reservoir in Tennessee
Surface elevation: 1,959′
Area: 10.04 mi²
Max. depth: 265 ft (81 m)
Location: Carter / Johnson counties, Tennessee, United States
Average depth: 16.0 m (52.5 ft)
As my adventure partner and I plan for “post-covid”, your itinerary give us inspiration – including a stop at Gourmet Goat! Your blog stays fresh and modern and I love it when Mr. Mickey is included. Thank you.
Thank you for showing Tennessee’s beauty!!
Scarves–the perfect touch of elegance. They are so versatile and look good on all body types.
Love blue and it will look great with my new White hair!
Susan your generosity with sharing life, advice, and gifts are so appreciated during these challenging times! Your blog is a wonderful respite and offers inspiration to fellow silver sisters. Your scarves are beautiful! Thanks!
This is a beautiful scarf. I enjoy your blog and I have learned much from your experiences.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos of Watauga Lake! I look forward to reading your blog on Tuesday and Thursday mornings before I start my day.
Looking forward to this series. I know it will bring back happy memories of time spent in and around Johnson City and the scarf is so pretty, it would be a wonderful addition to anyone’s wardrobe!
Beautiful photos of your drive. You both look happy and relaxed. It is a part of America we would like to visit and hopefully travel overseas might become viable in the near future. We have enjoyed a couple of previous family trips to USA and our plan on retirement was to see some more of the country. Who knows we may even make it to your city some day!
I love the colours in the scarf so it would be a wonderful addition to my wardrobe. My colouring is similar to yours Susan so I have learned a lot reading your post. I am also retired, after teaching for 40 years, so I have found your ideas of investing in a few good classics most helpful in redesigning my wardrobe. Mind you this year I have mostly worn pajamas as I tripped back in March and finally ended having a triple spinal fusion in July so am still on the road to recovery. One important thing I have taken from your blog is to dress to please myself and not others. Like you I am not really interested in trendy clothes which last for half a season.
Keep up your interesting blogs please,
I hope you have a complete recovery, Kenzie.
Often some of the most beautiful places are right in our own backyards. Thanks so much for sharing the the views around Watauga Lake. The blue scarf adds a touch of elegance to an outfit.
I love sunny but brisk days. What is your favorite season/weather?
I am a lover of Summer, Spring, Fall, and Winter in that order.
I love the way you and Mr. Mickey make the effort to enjoy the beautiful sights in your area of the country. You set a great example for your readers to take advantage of what nature has to offer in this unusual time in our country as well as when things get back to “normal.” Keep smiling!
Beautiful views are always so calming for me and Tennessee never disappoints. Great scarf and Mr. Mickey is looking dapper as usual.
I begin mornings with your adventures! I am 70 & my husband is 81. I love your style and love of adventure!
I have never worn scarves, but seeing you in all your lovely scarves makes me want to try them! Thank you for your blog. I’m new to it and I’m getting so much out of it. You are an inspiration!
It is a lovely scarf!
I live at the tip of a lovely lake and enjoy its beauty year round. Even when frozen, it provides a beautiful backdrop to frosted trees along its shore. Thank you for sharing your latest adventure, Susan.
The scarf is beautiful as are the photos you share!
You and Mr. Mickey always look so dashing! And I love that you find nearby adventures where you can be outdoors and enjoy the nature all around you!
All the best,
What beautiful lake pictures! And that’s a gorgeous scarf, as well.
This scarf would look beautiful with my new winter coat!
I love to travel virtually with you, Susan. Your photos are gorgeous as is this scarf! I hope I am fortunate enough to have my name chosen!
Your blog provides some beautiful views of places I have not seen in this pandemic year.
It is the best of socially distant travels.
Thank you for sharing your adventures. The lake is beautiful. You and Mr. Mickey make your adventures so fun-you are so fortunate to have each other.
I too enjoy your adventures. Thank you for all you do to share with us your online friends. I have always loved classic style and scarves are a wonderful accessory. You have helped me plan for a retirement wardrobe. I am so grateful for that!
I love the phrase “ adventure partner”! Doesn’t that describe life now!
Thanks to you I have been adding scarves to my wardrobe. The scarf would be a beautiful addition to my small collection. I ❤ blues.
Beautiful scenery and you both look very stylish.
Beautiful scarf with my favorite colors.
Beautiful location! Beautiful couple!
I really enjoy seeing your part of the country. My husband and I love to travel but this year all our trips have been canceled due to Covid. Your blog photos are a great way for me to mentally travel while physically staying home. I enjoy learning about places so the information you included is wonderful. I appreciate the links for Mr. Mickey’s clothes as well. The scarf is beautiful and would tie in very nicely with my wardrobe.
Gorgeous scarf! Love to read about your adventures.
You look beautiful in front of that glorious back drop!
I was not a scarf person until I started reading your blog. Now I’m hooked!!!!! Love this one!
Beautiful scarf! I love your adventures and spirit!
What a gorgeous lake! And you guys look great too
I truly think that is the most beautiful scarf I have ever seen! You are always inspiring, thank you.
What a great look on you and Mr. Mickey. Thank you for sharing information about the clothing that you both were wearing. The scarf is beautiful and would be a great addition to my collection.
Thank you for sharing your outing with us ! Photos are always fabulous. Love the colors in the scarf.
The scarf is lovely, I love the colors. I live in Alabama but have never heard about the lake. It is a lovely spot so I need to plan a visit, maybe post COVID19.
Beautiful mountain lake. Happy Holidays to you.
That’s a beautiful scarf…and just my colors. Great lake shots!
Lovely views and I enjoy your travels. Love your style .
My husband’s attire is usually a “fashion don’t.” I suggested he look at photos of Mr. Mickey to get some ideas. He’s slowly coming around and looks better and better each day. Thank you, Mr. Mickey!
Susan, I can’t thank you enough fir your wonderful fashion advice & lovely road trip suggestions over the years. Having never been to Tennessee, I have loved learning about this beautiful area. Your blue scarf reminds me of our iconic Colorado blue skies. Be well!
Love your sense of style and use of scarves
What a beautiful scarf!
Beautiful scarf! Really enjoy reading your blog. I’m
Love the colors in that scarf- goes with anything. Gorgeous. I never knew how to wear the large square scarves until I started following your blog. Now I’m hooked!
Love the colors in this scarf!
Love your casual chic look, perfect for some late Autumn exploring!
Susan, the colors in the scarf are beautiful. The colors in the scarf match the colors in your picture of the lake and sky!
You have taught me about colors that are worn near the face and this blue scarf would be perfect for me.
I love your timeless, classic fashion. You nail it EVERY TIME!! Thank you for sharing.
Oh my, those are my colors and I love scarves.
Beautiful pictures of Watauga lake! Don’t we love that feeling with our hair blowing in the wind!
My spouse is unable to travel and we very rarely dine out so I live vicariously through your blog posts and pictures. Thank you for all the time and effort that you and your adventure partner, Mr. Mickey, put into every post. Well done!!
Beautiful scenery, beautiful scarf. Thank you for sharing with your readers.
Susan and Mr. Mickey, I so enjoy joining you on your many excursions. The scarf above reminds me of Italy – such a beautiful color and pattern.
Admire you both so much. Love how you continue to enjoy and make the most of what your surroundings have to offer. Such fine examples to all of us.
The scarf is lovely❤️
I love seeing photos of your travels! I have visited your part of the country briefly, but I would love to go back when the world opens back up. My husband and I like to hike in the mountains. I wear a lot of blue so the scarf would go with many of my items.
Thank you for sharing your adventures with us, Susan.
Love the pictures of the lake and sailboat! Takes your mind away to a relaxing place. The scarf would look great with my blueeyes!
Beautiful lake! Would love to visit there! I would SO love to win that scarf because it would look great with everything from denim to the classic navy and black!
Glad you’re including links for Mr. Mickey’s attire as well. Great idea! Love the scarf.
Thank you for all you do to uplift my spirit as I follow along with you on your journey. I look forward to seeing your email in my box.
I have followed your blog for several years. It is so inspiring and uplifting. I bought a Berkey water filter because of you. My husband and I love how good it makes our water taste. I love wearing scarves. This one is beautiful!
It is so nice to see you and Mr.Mickey out enjoying the sun and beauty again. I so enjoy your blog!
Love your blog and your adventures with Mr. Wonderful. In today’s world of masks and lockdowns, you remind me that we can still decide to find beauty and joy in life. Thanks, friend. Sign me up for the drawing for the scarf.
As always, I enjoyed your post. I love the scarf!
You do have some wonderful, beautiful places to visit near you…I love lakes, mountains but moved with my partner to southeast North Carolina …he’s an avid golfer. I’ve grown to love it here, but my dream would be a home on a lake. The colors of the scarf are gorgeous! Happy travels to you and Mr. Mickey.
Thank you for all you do to be an encourager. I just celebrated three years with your friendship on the internet. I remember sitting with my daughter at the kitchen counter the day after Thanksgiving. I was depressed about purchasing clothing. When we found your site, I shared the information with my friends. When we would have the occasion to talk, your name would always come up. Thank you for introducing us to Beauty in the Stone Jewelry. My first purchase will arrive soon.
That scarf is beautiful! I love the unique blue that is around the edges of the square.
Your adventures always intrigue me. Sailing on the water is so calming!
Your neck of the woods is beautiful! Tennessee is one of my favorite states. Beautiful scarf!
I love that you take us along your outings. I’ll probably never get to visit any of these places so I’m enjoying all the photos and information. I’m sure you know how lucky you are to have such a sweet partner to share all your adventures with. I love the gorgeous blue scarf – blue is my favorite color.
What an inspiring post today! I need to make more of an effort to find local places where we can be outside in nature’s beauty.
That is a beautiful scarf! Thanks for your generosity!
Beautiful scarf and blog!
It’s so nice to see you and Mr. Mickey out on your adventures!
Beautiful scenery, beautiful Lady, and a beautiful scarf!! LOVE!
Hi Susan! Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos. I think it’s great that you and Mr. Mickey still get out to enjoy the day and nature…..you look so pretty wearing that scarf with the blue water in picture, I would love to wear one also with my salt and pepper hair!
I get to travel vicariously with you and Mr. Mickey to beautiful and interesting locations. Thanks so much for your great site.
The scarf is beautiful and I love blue.
Oh Susan you are my inspiration and I would love to win the scarf
Please Mr. Mickey pick me.
Beautiful scarf. Love your blog. You’ve become a real inspiration to many. Thank you!
You two make such a handsome couple!!!!! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
This is such a beautiful scarf. I enjoy reading your blog, and look forward to it.
Your skin looks so beautiful, Susan! Gorgeous scenic pictures of the lake. The scarf is also a beautiful. Big thank you to your driver, Mr Mickey.
I always look forward to your photos. You live in such a beautiful area of this great country! Thank you.
I love seeing you and Mr. Mickey’s adventures – even in our COVID world you remind us that there can be peace, joy and adventure if one only takes the first step.
Your website always brings inspiration to my days.
First comment, Susan, though I’ve read you over my morning coffee for years. So
many fashion hints you’ve shared which I’ve internalized. So….many thanks !
A suggestion for SusanAfter60.com: Your regional tourism bureau could certainly make
good use of your and Mr Mickey’s local drives, dining options, and pictures. You write
well with interesting comments about your area, and Johnson City folks can learn
tidbits about attractions along with ‘foreigners’ like me.
SusanAndMickeyOnALovelyTennesseeDay ? SusanAndMicke’sTennesseeTravelTips ?
I live in WA (another beautiful USA state), and, really, you’ve prompted me to add
Tennessee to our ‘travel wish list’ for when the ‘all clear’ post-virus announcement comes.
Stay well, friend Susan !
The lovely print scarf would work well with my solid blue and navy basics…..no prints on my
5’2″ body, thanks to your advice!
Hi Susan and Mr. Mickey!
I always love to see the photos of your adventures! You encourages my husband and me to take a few similar trips here in southern Indiana. At our age, it’s a blessing to find new places to visit or to see old places with new eyes! EnJoy!
I have always loved blue and love your blog, I always check in on Tuesday and Thursday. I wish you health and happiness will follow.
The mountains of Tennessee are truly beautiful. I’ve been following your blog for a while. I enjoy seeing our Tennessee landmarks as well as your stylish looks.
You live in a beautiful area of our dear country. I enjoy your scenic pictures of your day trips. As usual, you and Mr. Mickey are always well dressed and are great ambassadors for your area. Love your styles!
I look forward to reading your blog every time you post one. It’s fun to follow each adventure that you and Mr. Mickey have, and I really enjoy finding out more about the sights and locations near your home. Of course, I also “tune in” to discover what you wear on your outings. Thanks for posting your photos and tips over the years.
I would love to win the scarf. Thanks!
The lake must be absolutely stunning in the autumn. Cheers to you both.
Both you and Mr. Mickey always nail the style no matter if it’s for a casual outing or a more formal event! Just love reading about your adventures.
Beautiful scarf and pictures! We travel through your area every year on our way south. (Sadly not this year) I am going to make a point of stopping for a few days next year and exploring some of the beautiful towns, national parks and the mountain drives that you share with us. Love your blog!
Beautiful day to be at the lake! Love the scarf!
I look forward to reading each of your blog entries. Although I have long passed 60, I learn something from each of them’
Thank you for your effort in keeping us ‘oldsters’ up to date.
I’m thankful for your gracious sharing of your fashion advice and the adventures with Mr. Mickey.
I’m more confident in my style choices because of your inspiration and the tales of the outings with your man just warm my heart…
I know that I can look put together anytime by following the tips from you.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos and adventures!
Hi Susan, glad to see you looking so healthy and vibrant. I would love to visit your part of the country, it looks breathtaking! Happy December. Love the shoes…Angela
I always enjoy your getaway posts and photos! You are fortunate to have these scenic adventures close by.
I really really need that beautiful scarf. It would look gorgeous, honey, with my sparkling blue eyes! And to make matters even more wonderful I also have a handsome white haired Mr Mickey except he’s Mr Richie!
Thank you & Merry Christmas!
The scarf is beautiful and I would love to wear it as you have shown so many times.
You are indeed lucky to live where you do. Thank you for sharing & taking us along on your adventures.
I’m so happy to see you and Mr. Mickey out and about again.
Blue is a classic color that looks beautiful on all especially Asian and Mickey!
Love enjoying your adventures virtually with you, and hope one day to be able to see some of these myself. I have visited TN a few times in the past, and loved going to Cades Cove and driving on some of the back roads.!
Looking forward to your and Mr. Mickeys next adventure
Beautiful scarf and beautiful couple! Mr Mickey is quite the spiffy dresser!!
Susan, I so enjoy the the lovely scenery around your home. You and Mr Mickey look sharp in your casual clothes. I was thinking about Mr Mickey’s role as Santa and wondered if that will not happen this year because of the pandemic. I would proudly wear that gorgeous scarf!
Sadly, the Santa project will not happen this year.
Lovely post Susan! Both of you look great as usual. Watagua Lake is pristine and the sailboats are beautiful. I would love a chance to win the scarf.
Thank you for sharing your lovely day travel experiences. We are having light snow here in the northeast, though it was warm enough for an early morning walk. That beautiful scarf would be the perfect accessory now and throughout the year.
I enjoy seeing your beautiful outfits and how you put your ensembles together with that special touch. Today it’s that beautiful scarf in my favorite color blue.
Thanks for sharing your trips with us. I’ve been inspired to dress more put together these days, and jewelry and scarves certainly do that. After ridding my wardrobe of work clothes over the last 6 years, it was hard to figure out my style. Retirement is altogether different and I wanted to look smart, but comfortable. Thank you for your tips on rebuilding a wardrobe and what suits each body type and coloring. No more washed out beige or muted colors for me and more brights and comfortable, but cute shoes are now occupying my closet.
Hi Susan –
You and Mr. Mickey should be Tennessee Travel Ambassadors. In addition to your wonderful fashion tips, I love seeing all the beautiful sites you discover on your day trips. My husband and I have added many to our must visit list and hope we can soon return to travelling.
It is always a treat to see your beautiful ensembles with your perfect added touch. Today it is the lovely blue scarf in my favorite color.
I just wearing scarves and this one is beautiful!
My eyes are as blue as the sky and the lake, so I would love to wear the scarf
What a beautiful site! Lakes are so majestic no matter where they are. Hoping that you had a wonderful time. Stay safe. Susan
I always look forward to your blog posts!!
You make brisk look pleasant!
I love tagging along on your adventures!
Beautiful area! Lakes are always a wonderful place to visit no matter where they are. The scarf reminds me of water whether is is a pond, lake, or the ocean. Thank you for sharing with us. Stay safe.
What a beautiful lake! Another reason to visit East Tennesssee. The colors of the scarf remind me of the water in the lake.
That scarf is BEAUTIFUL! That’s a generous giveaway and I’d certainly enjoy receiving it to style with my outfits. I appreciate accessories that add a dash of spice to my neutral color main pieces that I can mix-and-match
Now that I am completely gray, I love to accent with lovely cool colors.
I hope you and Mr. Mickey had a splendid visit to Watauga Lake. The color of the water is stunning! As many times as I have traveled through that area, I have never heard of it, though I had heard the story of “Old” Butler.
What a nice giveaway. This gorgeous scarf blends perfectly with the stunning lake water. Some lucky recipient will be very excited to have it.
This scarf looks pretty enough to be a wall hanging. It looks like a tapestry.
I love, love, love that scarf. I looked on the website to buy it, but it’s a different color. I’ve been following you for about 6 years and I’ve learned so much from you. And accessories is a big help with my “retirement “ wardrobe. Thank you for sharing all your great ideas.
The scarf I am wearing is from last year, so I shared a similar current one.
You live in such a beautiful area of the country and I love seeing all the beautiful scenery. Thank you for posting and for your beautiful give-a-ways.
Beautiful blue scarf. My favorite color is blue and I would love this scarf.
I so enjoy following your blog. When I purchase an item that you end up displaying, I feel proud of myself. The scarf is stunning and something I would wear often as they are my colors. Recently, I FaceTimed with my 3 year old granddaughter while I was in the hospital for a brief stay. She wondered where my bracelets were because she is so used to seeing me with my jewelry. She was relieved that I had on earrings. I agree with your philosophy to always try to be put together-even in the hospital.
I look forward to your blogs and it is always nice to see Mr. Mickey.
What an adventurous life you and Mr. Mickey live! You provide inspiration for all of your readers! I would love to own the beautiful scarf and would be reminded of the two of you and your charming, fun filled life every time I wore it. Thanking you in advance!
What a beautiful lake, and what a beautiful scarf! Thank you for sharing the gorgeous scenery and for the giveaway opportunity.
Love to read about your adventures. It is inspiring that you have date nights. It is so easy to put other things before spending time with love ones. Thank you for your inspiration.
As the kids say, Choose Me! Thanks for taking us along on your jaunt.
Love the beautiful blues in this lovely scarf!
Susan, As always, thanks for sharing your adventures with us. It’s nice to see others also making the best of our current situation. You and Mr. Mickey look great , but also comfortable for your ride. We, too, are ordering takeout in an attempt to support our local restaurants.
Matches the blue of the lake! Beautiful item..
Oh I am such a scarf girl and have learned so much from you. Love how scarves lend themselves to a timeless classic style that I so enjoy. Your adventures with Mr. Mickey are delightful. Thank you.
Thank you for sharing all the lovely and scenic spots in Tennessee and North Carolina! Makes me want to visit!!
Thank you for sharing your amazing photos of Watauga Lake. Your scarf give-away coordinates perfectly with the photos.❤️
Oh Susan, I would love to have this beautiful scarf. Perfect for my color scheme. Thank you so much for continuing your blog. It continues to be an invaluable source to me for classy timeless style.
You know I started following you looking for style inspiration, but just as much, I have appreciated your travels and stories including Mr. Mickey. You all are blessed to live a short drive from so many lovely places.
The scarf is gorgeous and will be a lovely addition to whomever ends up with it. (Trying to stay classy, but crossing my fingers it’s me. LOL)
Thank you for your continued work on the blog! Have a lovely holiday season.
What a beautiful lake. Looks like it was a gorgeous day. You look lovely and Mr. Mickey looks dapper as always. So enjoy your posts. Thank you for taking us on your adventures.
I can’t wait for your posts each week. I have learned so much.
Y’all make such an elegant couple always impeccably dressed. Your road trips make me wish we lived closer to the mountains but three hours there and three hours back use up the day. The lovely scarf echos the colors of the lake area.
Love this scarf as the colors are ones I use a lot.
I think you look lovely when you have colorful scarves with your jean look. The scarves give you a lift and sparkle that sometimes is missing when you are just wearing a plain top and bottom.
Since I have been following your blog, I have incorporated using scarves, thanks to your advice and love the look very much. Gives the fashion boost that is needed to be set apart from the “regular” styles.
Mr. Mickey looks “spiffy” in his casual outfit as well. You sure make a grand looking couple, people would take a second glance to see. Probably wondering if you were celebrities they were seeing…… What a difference a fashion statement makes!
Clara from Iowa
I have been watching you for about two years and I am always amazed at your talent for putting together your special look each week. I have been adding scarves to my wardrobe for that change of look as well as adding color. My hair is now white and scarves add color to my face. I continue to incorporate your advise in my selections of clothing and color. I have received many compliments by following your advise. Which makes me feel good about my self. After all isn’t that what it is about.
Blue of the sky, blue of the lake, blue of the scarf, perfection.
This is a beautiful scarf that would compliment so many outfits. It has all my favorite colors!
Lovely pictures! Lovely scarf too
I enjoy your posts and hope you keep them up for MANY YEARS. YOU ARE A DELIGHT in our crazy world
I love your pictures from the beautiful mountain lake! Thank you for sharing.
Beautiful photos Susan.
Beautiful blues and whites!
Nature inspiration from scenery to style!
Thank you, Susan, for offering such a desirable scarf as a prize. Must admit that it ticks all the boxes for me.
What gorgeous photos of your neck of the woods. It’s amazing to see sail boats still out because where we sail, Lake Huron in Canada, gale force winds and blowing snow are the order of the day right now!
Enjoy your adventures with Mr Mickey and I look forward to travelling virtually with your lovely blog.
Beautiful scarf – It would work beautifully with my colors
Love your outings – thank you for showing us the wonders of your state
Nature’s inspiration from scenery to style!
What a beautiful scarf! I always look forward to reading about your latest adventures! Thank you for sharing!
Both of you look spiffy and dressed for the weather. Beautiful day.
You are so lucky to live in such a beautiful area – and have such good weather, even at this time of the year! Here in the UK it has been cold and misty for the last few days ….
Thank you for sharing.
This is a stunning scarf! Thank you for sharing your outdoor adventures with Mr. Mickey. It’s uplifting to see people like the two of you enjoying life in the midst of a pandemic. You are teaching by example and your positivity is infectious.
Watauga Lake is gorgeous! thank you for sharing pictures of your visit. And thanks also for the chance to win the lovely scarf.
Love your scarves! Look forward to your posts and there is always something new to consider.
Adding a colorful scarf to my solid color tops have always brightened my face. I have purchased several from your collection.
What a lovely day you had. Picturesque!
I love blue and the blue scarf.
Love your blog. You have truly helped me simplify and improve my wardrobe. Thank you
That scarf is beautiful, almost as beautiful as you! Thanks for sharing more sights and looks.
The scarf is beautiful! You and Mr. Mickey are my favorite online couple! You always look spectacular!
I love when you share your adventures with us, Susan. Enjoy seeing how Mr. Mickey is attired for your trips.
I love to see pictures of your adventures in Tennessee. You and Mr. Mickey are an inspiration – positive attitudes, beautifully dressed, and so caring.
You are both so beautiful and true soul mates.
May you enjoy every moment in life together.
I so enjoy reading your blog! Stay safe
The scarf is beautiful all the colors are what I wear daily, thank you again for sharing all your adventures on your blog.
This lake looks beautiful. I’m drawn to water, as it provides me with a sense of peace and tranquility. Spending time in nature allows me to appreciate all the beauty the world has to offer.
Beautiful scarf, beautiful lake.
It is a beautiful lake and the scarf reflects the colorful blues of the water! Love it.
Lovely pictures. I always enjoy your posts. I love the scarf. Shades of blue are my favorite combination.
Hello to Mr. Mickey. I always enjoy you sharing your adventures.
I always look forward to reading about your adventures with Mr. Mickey. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos of Watauga Lake!
You are so blessed to live near so many beautiful spots! Appalachia is one of our favorite places to visit. I enjoy all your road trip adventures and your traveling companion is a dapper dresser for sure. Hope you have a happy & healthy holiday season!
You and Mr. Mickey are an inspiration to my husband and me in so many ways — from the sartorial to the ways you live your lives. Always curious and engaged. Thanks for always having something to say and share with us.
I’m always so envious of your beautiful drives. There seem to be many charming towns and lovely parks with lakes in your area.
Gorgeous combination of multiple shades of blue.
I love following along on your jaunts with Mr. Mickey. I’m a history buff so I particularly like when you visit historic areas. We are the same age and you have helped me be comfortable with that and guided me to a style that is suitable for a woman of our age. I don’t want to look frumpy and I certainly don’t want to look like a 20 yr old either. I like looking classic with simple colors and pieces. This lovely scarf is just the right addition to so many looks and color combinations. I’d love to win.
The name of the scarf should be “Sail Away” just like today’s blog. Just beautiful!
Love your blog and all your adventures with Mr. Mickey. I’d love the beautiful scarf.
Love Mr. Mickey’s looks. Wish I could get my hubby to dress up more often.
Wishing I could sail away right about now! ha ha
Love hearing about your adventures!! Great pictures and have a grand old time with your traveling buddy!!
I am a scarf person. I love the cream and navy in this one and would be thrilled to add it to my collection of accessories. Thank you for the opportunity!
What a beautiful blue scarf-it goes with the beautiful blue lake!
Love all the blue designs in this one and the touch of tan would be a great help in bridging the gap between the blue side of my closet and the beige/khaki/tan side!
All the colors of your setting are in this gorgeous scarf!
Such a beautiful scarf!
You live in a beautiful part of our country! I love viewing your travel posts! The scarf is lovely! Robin
Beautiful lake photo!! what a great day get away!!! I enjoy your day trips with Mr. Mickey!!! Love the scarf!!
I must say that Mr Mickey is looking particularly dapper. It really is so generous of you to take us on your journeys. Stay well and have a safe ,happy and pleasant festive season
Dear Susan, I love the way you and Mr. Mikey are enjoying life in these complicated times.. I enjoy seeing all the lovely fashionable pictures of you and the beautiful surroundings. With love from the Netherlands, Harriët
Although I have followed you for many years I am a quiet follower for the most part. As a Michigander who graduated many years ago from Appalachian State University (whose name is also Susan and who turned 64 in September) I love that I can return to the area and experience all of these beautiful places once again, yet vicariously, through you. Thank you for your expertise, enthusiasm and generosity.
Thanks for the beautiful pictures, Susan!
Love the scarf and love to see your travels! I am from East Tennessee and always enjoy your day trips. It makes me quite nostalgic!
I love your blog — the lake is so peaceful— and what a gorgeous scarf!
Thanks Susan for your lovely blog. I feel as though I have visited these beautiful locations with you. Your great advice stays in my mind as I shop, now I go for quality instead of quantity and I question how the item fits in with what I have already. I would love to win the scarf as blue is my favourite colour. Be well and stay safe. Hi to Mr. Micky
Always enjoy your posts. Thanks for sharing
Gorgeous blues in the scarf – would love to wear it to work!
Enjoy your blog so much!!
Like Mr. Mickey, I fell two years ago Thanksgiving and ended up in the ER with a broken femur. But mine has not been a good recovery as I’ve had four operations two were revisions. I still have severe pain and still cannot walk. ALWAYS get a second opinion for anything. But to the blog. Your adventures are my adventures right now so I look at your photos many times. I’m going to walk again. And when I go back to church the first time, I’ll wear this lovely scarf and think of you two! (Hint,hint)
Mr. Mickey has limited use of his knees and legs from playing tennis so much when he was younger. He has such happy memories from those days, so we try to make the most of the situation. I hope you have a full recovery from your fall, Myra.
The lake is stunning! What a glorious day you had. I think the scarf is utterly beautiful.
Oh such gorgeous colors. Just love it!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful and fun drives to different areas near you. It looks like you are a bit warmer where you are than we are (Michigan). Love your sense of style and Mr. Mickey’s style also! Enjoy your time outside, we try to walk as much as possible and take short drives ourselves as much as possible! Stay safe and warm!
Such gorgeous colors. I love it!
Thank you so much for your blog. I read it almost as soon as it hits my in-box! Up until COVID I worked part-time as a receptionist in a beauty salon (perfect position for a 72 year old). I really miss the stylists and clients! I would get compliments daily on my “new look”. I was putting together outfits inspired by your blog and getting lots of compliments! Thank you again for your informative information!
This is such a lovely scarf! I’m just beginning to add scarves to my wardrobe.
You and Mr. Mickey always look so well-dressed. Enjoy reading about your adventures together.
When you write about Mr. Mickey it always makes me smile. My grandson loves Mickey Mouse and calls himself Mr. Mickey, so I think of my grandson.
I would love to wear this scarf.
Thank you for the pictures of the lake! Our lakes in Ontario Canada now are white with blowing snow… I miss the summer already.. love to see pictures of your adventures!
I love the blue of the lake ,l love the blue scarf ,I love the beautiful pearl earrings on you .
Thank you for taking us on your adventures!! Blue & tan are great neutrals to combine and dress up or down. I am always inspired by your creativity. Many thanks for another lovely post!
Merry Christmas to you and Mr. (Santa) Mickey!
~Katrina in California
Hi Susan! Lovely photos of the lake although it looks chilly. As always you and Mr. Mickey look sophisticated yet appropriate for your day’s adventure. Looking forward to Wednesday’s post. Stay well!
Beautiful photos! Beautiful scarf! Always enjoy reading your blog Susan!
What a beautiful day you had, and what a beautiful scarf you have ! I’ve been following you for a few years but I think this is the first time I’ve ever left a comment 🙂 x
The scarf is gorgeous & looks lovely on you, especially with your eyes. Stunning. Thanks always to you & Mr. Mickey for taking us along on your adventures. I have subscribed to several blogs through the years but yours is the one with which I have remained. Excellent content, helpful information, beautiful photographs. Thank you, Susan.
Beautiful pictures of my favorite state — Tennessee! Thank you!
Oh my gosh that scarf is amazingly beautiful. I love the colors! Wishing you and Mr. Mickey continued good health and safety. As always thank you for sharing all that you do.
I would love to win this and gift it to my daughter-in-law to be who has beautiful blue eyes. It would look lovely on our sweet Constance.
That lovely scarf should belong to a blue eyed girl. I’m a blue eyed girl!
Your adventures into nature are always inspiring. Thanks for sharing.
How delightful to be able to see Mr. Mickey modeling his outfit. You two are quite the pair, always dressed so stylishly, yet comfortably.
Susan, this scarf is absolutely gorgeous.
You are a great looking couple!
Would love to win this scarf. I’m leaning toward wearing more blue as I get older. Loved reading the book with Mr. Mickey in it. I had my mom living with me when she suffered from dementia and could relate to what they went thru. Stay well and safe. Love the blog.
I rarely wear scarfs and love how you style them so often.
You sure do live in a beautiful part of the country. Thank you for the many scenic pictures.
Hi, Susan – I guess it is about time I left a comment for you. I have followed your blog since 2016 when I retired and finally had time to figure how to be not frumpy. Still working on it! But I do love scarves and this one is gorgeous. Thanks to you and Mr. Mickey for providing a fun place to stop by virtually. I wish you both continued good health and many more adventures.
Beautiful scarf that made the outfit perfect. I will use it to dress up my navy casual. Love your adventures.
You two! Always the natty dressers! We can always rely on Susan and Mr. Mickey to show us how to elevate our look. No sweats, holey jeans or leggings to be found! I love it!
That scarf is gorgeous! Thank you for all of your posts, all of us followers appreciate you – and Mr. Mickey!
I love following along on your exploration of the surrounding area! Thank you for sharing with us.
You both look amazing….Mr. Mickey always looks so Posh…..I love when we cruise my husband does too❤️.
Very lovely photos.
Blessings and Happy December 1 ( tomorrow, December 2 is my Birthday, 61 yrs. young )
Happy Birthday, Holly!
Beautiful scarf! The colors match the beautiful colors of nature shown in your pictures – the amazing depths of the blues in the water and the tan of the shoreline. And the design is lovely! Almost like a compass! Beautiful! (BTW – the shoes are adorable!)
Thank you for your post as you are helping me slowly refine my wardrobe
The scarf is beautiful…love the colors.
Thank you for continuing your blog during the pandemic! Your calm and beautiful photos are a respite.
Love the versatility of scarves and thanks to you I am wearing them again. Love your tutorials on how to tie scarves also.
LOVE the scarf so HOPE I win it! FYI ALWAYS copy yr travel info & in July this came in handy when we traveled to Abingdon, VA!!!
These are MY colors & I don’t have a scarf this size or nearly this nice. Love following your adventures with Mr. Mickey!
Always a classy but such a normal lady.
Lives life the best way she and Mr Mickey can.
So different yet so similar to the way I lead my life here in the UK.
Love reading your blogs, keep them coming.
I love your photos, it looks like you had a glorious day! Thank you so much for sharing your fashion style! I’ve bought a few new items from your suggestions and I feel quite stylish now!
I very much enjoy your posts. Informative and stylish. You are a beautiful model. Thank you for your “tips”! Merry Christmas!
Hi Susan – that beautiful scarf has my favorite shades of blue that will complement 90% of the clothes I wear regularly – I would absolutely love it and treat it with care – almost as much as you have given it! Thanks for another wonderful blog and I always look forward to getting your emails!
The scarf is new. I purchased a few to give away during this time of year.
Thank you for sharing men’s fashion via Mr Mickey
You two are such a romantic couple and an example for us younger couples! Always look forward to reading your blog.
How amazing that your beautiful scarf mirrors the colors in your pictures ! Not only accessorizing your outfit but Mother’s Nature’s as well: blue for the sky and lake, and tans for the tree barks all around. Your pictures remind all of us that there is beauty in our own backyards, if we will only look………
As always, you go above and beyond. For example, others may find it easy to “see” whether a colour is warm or cool. I can’t. But you, ever helpful, tell us that this lovely scarf is “warm”. Thank you. Could you also advise how you tied your scarf so that it stayed as it should in that wind! All my best.
Thank you, Gayle. I folded the 35″ scarf on the bias, tied the ends, and then twisted it into a figure 8 and looped it over my head twice to create the look of an infinity scarf. Here is a video I did to show how to do the tie.
Absolutely beautiful scarf.
What a beautiful scarf. It looks like the beautiful lake you visited. It also reminds me of the embroidery work I do called Blackwork where all the lines are stitch with rows of embroidery floss.
The blue scarf is lovely! I’ve become a scarf wearer since following your blog. Thank you for all the great ideas!
What beautiful photos! And a beautiful scarf which I would love to win!
Making the best of the times! Fun. Love the scarf.
The scarf is a perfect match to your photos of Watauga Lake, even the rocks alongside! Both lake and photograph are beautiful.
Thank you for this opportunity, and for your interesting blog entries.
Ann Lee S
Oh, those beautiful blues in the scarf remind me of the waters of my nearby
Lake Keowee and Lake Jocassee, and now your Lake Watauga. Blue and crisp blue
and white together have always been my favorites. Joy to you fellow travelers
and revelers in life this holiday season. Susan Lusk in South Carolina
This scarf is beautiful, Susan. I think you become more beautiful as you age
I will be retiring in a couple of years, and look forward to burning my scrubs (I’m a nurse), and dressing as stylishly as you do. Hope Mr. Mickey is enjoying his well deserved retirement!
What a lovely scarf. These colors are near and dear to my mothers heart, so I thought I’d try. If I win, I’m sure she will adore it! Thank you for showing it, and for helping us to dress elegantly and simply.
Beautiful scarf! Would love to wear it! Thanks for all you do!
Your photos of the lake are just beautiful. Makes a person want to take a road trip!!
The scarf is just spectacular! I’m surprised you’re giving it away as it’s such a beautiful color for you! In fact it’s the same shade of blue as the lake in your pictures! I think it’s special that you and Mr. Mickey have such enjoyable times exploring the countryside together and many evenings of fine dining! Have an safe and festive December!
The scarf is new. I bought a few items to give away to followers of the blog during the holidays.
Thank you for sharing your wisdom which helps us all as we age.
Beautiful blues! So lovely!
Your travels are my travels. A West Texan with dreams of your neck of the woods and loving a road trip, I believe I will make it happen. Until then, cheers to you and Mr. Mickey. Carry on!
Thank you for being so generous! The photos of the lake are gorgeous.
The scarf is so beautiful. The colors remind me of the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean. It would truly be a treasure.
Beautiful scarf. Love the blue colors.
Hi Susan, I have been a frequent visitor/reader of your blogs and love all of your advice. Thanks for all the great ideas; I’ve learned so much from you.
By the way, my eyes happen to be the exact blue of that scarf; what a coincidence! Just sayin’ LOL.
Hi Susan, I always enjoy reading your helpful and entertaining blogs. The scarf is beautiful, thsnk you for the opportunity. Best Wishes, Always! Linda
All around dashing!
I would wear this gorgeous scarf in Minnesota…”from the Land of Sky Blue Waters”
The scarf is absolutely gorgeous and would complement everything in my closet!
Love your s raves. The colors are my colors.
I so enjoy your outings. You live in a beautiful area.
I love your style because it is classy, elegant, and practical. You are such an inspiration Susan! Thank you.
Let it be me!!!! What a wonderful Christmas present!
I always enjoy your adventures in your beautiful part of the world. It certainly has encouraged me to take another look at places to see around my home.
The scarf is certainly beautiful. Anyone would love to wear it if they win. A perfect color too!
Love reading about your excursions with Mr. Mickey, and look forward to more culinary adventures in the future! The scarf is beautiful!
A while ago, you detailed a basket you keep in your closet to maintain your shoes, purses, and sweaters. I wonder if you could link to that post in reply, please. I’m curious about how to clean your purses and de-pill sweaters. Thanks! I’m continuing to enjoy your site very much, even though I’m probably ten years older than you.
This might be the blog post you are thinking of. (Here)
I always enjoy your adventures! The scarf is lovely! My favorite color!
Beautiful scarf, like your life. Congrats.
Beautiful lake, how lucky you are to have such beautiful areas so close.
Love that scarf and Love reading your blog ❤️
Love your blog!!! Blue is my favorite color!!!! You two are adorable!!! Happy holidays!
This is one of my favorite posts and outfits from you, Susan. The black jacket is so chic.
As soon as I saw the scarf, I realized how beautifully it reflects the colors of the lakeside. The soft blues and stones are so harmonious and calming together.
Mr. Mickey looks so serene surrounded and enveloped in the natural beauty. Thank you for sharing your picture perfect day.
Glad you guys get out and about. My husband and I need to continue exploring our state – Texas. We have stayed home because of Covid since March. Just going to get in car and go.
Wow! Beautiful scarf. Love the colors. I always enjoy your blog. You are a special lady with exquisite taste.
I am a scarf girl, and would get good use out of your gift. What’s not to love about a classic piece?!
Thanks for your practical posts. I agree with all the tips and suggestions, whether it be fashion or travel.
Yay for a giveaway! Love that scarf- just the right mix of blues.
I hope someday you and Mr Mickey will consider doing a post on finding a partner after 60. It would be so interesting to hear a guy’s perspective- it could be like an interview with Mr Mickey. And I like how you two have maintained your independence while being together. I think that’s key- and can be hard to find people who want to do that!
We met at a neighborhood Christmas party on December 10th, fifteen years ago. Each of us had decided to give up on relationships or ever finding an adventure partner, but three months later, he asked me out to dinner, and the best part of life began.
Dear Susan and Mr. Mickey, I have followed your blog for the last 4 years and have learned so much. My favorite part are the day trips you take. We live near Charlotte and my husband retired last July 31 and 3 days later I had a traumatic fall, so no travel as planned! Then covid and in July he had bypass surgery. What a 18 month challenge!! But we are healthy and fit so I write down every trip you take and plan on following your trips ourselves. Glad you are both well and enjoying your day trips. Really terrific destinations and food recommendations. Thank you for the adventures. Fondly, Betty Rowbotham
Hey Mr. Micky
You got a cute little chickee
But I hope you get picky
cause This is getting real sticky
I want the scarf <3
You live in such a beautiful area. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. I like that you give us a little history with your trips too.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Love your adventures! I am 54 years old and have followed your blog for some time. I find your outfits to be elegant and classic and try to emulate your style. I too found myself dressing frumpy and looked on line for help. That’s when I found you! Thank you for all the wonderful ideas and all your fun adventures!
I enjoy reading your blog – day trips, food, outfit ideas, education, and the list goes on! I recently purchased 3 pairs of sheecsocks per your recommendation. Thanks, they stay put!
Beautiful pictures and place…been there many times.I love to see the paces you and Mr. Mickey visit. You look beautiful, too!
Happy safe holidays to both of you!
Beautiful scarf- and the one you are wearing is striking next to your beautiful face! Your adventure pics/descriptions are enjoyable to see. I just love local excursions with my guy too, they are the best aren’t they! It’s fun when you share Mr. Mickeys outfits too, you both look so well styled, and he reminds me of Santa!!
I so enjoy your blog on for both the smart fashion expertise and the travel experiences! Thank you for sharing so much with us readers! Your blog is like a sweet treat in my email box! I do love the scarf of blues and tan, my colors!
I’d wear it well if Mr Mickey were to choose my name. Thank you from NH!
Your blog posts are so enjoyable. I’ve learned so much about our local and regional destinations and activities. We will visit each whenever possible. Your posts are something to look forward to and a guide to shopping for an appropriate retirement and travel wardrobe. Thanks again.
You live in such a beautiful area to have so many wonderful adventures so close to home.
Love the scarf.
That scarf is gorgeous
Thank you again for sharing your outing and giving us a tour around your state. Tennessee is a long way from California but hopefully someday we will be able travel to your part of the country. The scarf is lovely and I have been adding more blue to my wardrobe due to your excellent fashion advise. ❤️
What a lovely scarf!
I am appreciating your blog even more lately as I am a retired physician who has gone back into the workforce to help in primary care offices during this time of need. Has been awhile since I needed to dress for work so this has been very helpful. Thanks for all you do!
The scarf looks like a mosaic project that I have worked on! Just beautiful and I would love it!
I love scarves and frequently wear them. This one is beautiful!
You are so blessed to live in such a beautiful area. All of your photos are breathtaking. Love reading about the adventures of ” Susan and Mr. Mickey”.
I ALWAYS enjoy your blogs! They are the first email I open when I go to my inbox!
Thanks for sharing your tips and trips … and Mr. Mickey with us!!
What a beautiful scarf. I would love an opportunity to win. Take a trip to Kansa City & view our gorgeous holiday lights on the Plaza. Sure to put you in the holiday spirit.
Mr. Mickey is very handsome and debonair.
I enjoyed your lakeside photos – really love learning about the history of your circle of states. I am an active senior who would cherish wearing so elegant a scarf on my jaunts around the peninsula where I live. (celebrated my 91st birthday on Thanksgiving!) Looking forward each day to receiving your blog.
Mary Jane Fuller
The blues in that scarf are gorgeous
Your pictures are beautiful! It looks like a spectacular day!
Blue is my favorite color!
Beautiful scarf. Love your travel photos.

I love reading about your adventures with Mr Mickey. You are such a classy couple and are always doing something interesting.
The lake is beautiful; I always enjoy seeing the white sails against blue water. My husband and I have a sailboat that has brought us many wonderful memories! The scarf colors are beautiful also and a good compliment to your post by the lake. Thank you for a wonderful blog!!
Beautiful scarf! So many gorgeous shades of blue! I love how you accessorize with your scarves! They make your outfits!
What a beautiful scarf, I would love to add that to my collection, thanks
The scarf is beautiful and would look perfect with my newly-grown-out gray hair! : )

Such lovely pictures! You and Mr. Mickey always look so great.
Beautiful scarf to match the scenery
I love this scarf! Your style is always so on point and I look forward to your posts!
I enjoy your blog and find great joy in reading about your and Mr. Mickey’s adventures. Happy Holidays!
I love the different color of blues in this scarf. I have sky blue eyes’ and this scarf will compliment them. I love your blog Susan and seeing Mr. Mickey! The lake is beautiful. You live in a beautiful area of the USA. I would really love this scarf for my birthday which is Dec 17. I will be 65, I received my Medicare card in the mail and thought, wow I don’t feel 65!! Am I really this old LOL.
It’s so fun to follow along on your adventures with Mr Mickey in your beautiful state of Tennessee.
I’ve learned so much from your fashion advice and would LOVE the beautiful scarf to add to my wardrobe
Gorgeous day. The scarf reflects most of the colors in the scenery. Both are lovely.
It is a lovely scarf!
That is a really beautiful scarf!
Once again your casual outfit is comfy and classy! The scarf would be a perfect compliment to my casual closet.
The scarf is gorgeous! I so enjoy following your travels and seeing new destinations.
What a beautiful scarf!
Beautiful! I use these lovely colors in my home decor. There’s something about this color combination that I always find soothing and cozy.
I so enjoy your blog. I take inspiration from your advice!
Tennessee is my home state, although I now live in Michigan, within walking distance to Lake Michigan. Y’all should visit — in summer or fall — vistas of Lake Michigan are stunning! I’d love to be y’all’s tour guide. I’m from Memphis — would love to drive horizontally across the State of Tennessee and check out Johnson City and Lake Watauga!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Sing Hallelujah!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Sing Hallelujah!
I love !! the scarf! Rebuilding my wardrobe after moving to Michigan from Florida!
What a beautiful lake. Hello to you and Mr. Mickey. Yes please enter my name for a chance to win the scarf.
Beautiful outfit for a gorgeous, crisp day.
Oh Susan and Mr. Mickey, I love the colors of this scarf. In fact, I might be wrong, but it seems like you had a similar scarf for sale when you were selling scarves. I know I kept looking at a scarf many times but never sis buy it. These are colors I wear most of the time. I so enjoy ” going along” with the 2 of you on your drives. I’ve never been to Tennessee so this gives me the opportunity to see your beautiful state. Thanks for all the work you do to keep your blog going.
How fortunate you are to have such a handsome travel companion! Did you notice that your scarf has the same beautiful blues as the gorgeous lake! Hope you both have a wonderful Christmas season, celebrate the season.
I have one of your silk scarves and love it.
That’s a beautiful scarf and I can almost smell that fresh mountain air.
This scarf is inspiration for a beautiful quilt!
Beautiful, last feels like I’m there
Beautiful, almost seems like I’m there
The scarf will brighten my outfits and my family will love it on me!
I love these colors! Thank you for sharing your part of the US with us.
Today I wore very similar items to the clothing you had on in this post minus the scarf.I have been searching for one with those colors in it. If I don’t win the scarf, do you have information on ordering it? It’s beautiful. Blue is my best color for my skin tone and hair color ( gray with dark brown).
I bought the smaller silk scarf I was wearing from SaksOff5th about two years ago. They sometimes have a good selection of square scarves.
What a beautiful day for a drive! You and Mr. Mickey are an inspiration on how to have fun in our socially distanced world! I love the scarf.
Love those colors! So happy that you both always enjoy yourselves and life!
I love the scarf! I own it! If I were to be the recipient of the giveaway I would gift my best friend, soul sister!
Love all the shades of blue in the scarf.
I wore a scarf tucked inside my sweater jacket when I went for my monthly massage today. Of course, the therapist commented how lovely I looked! The scarf gets all of the credit!
What a beautiful scarf. I have learned a lot from your blog
That scarf is absolutely beautiful! I have been trying to build up my scarf wardrobe during Covid lockdown and have found it difficult to find this large size. I have learned so much from your blog and have been investing in similar, high quality items. Thank you for continuing with your advice!
Beautiful area to explore and experience nature. Lovely scarf. You and Mr. Mickey are always dressed well.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
What a beautiful area you live in! I would love to put my kayak in that lake. Alas, we are in the depth of winter here in Canada, so the kayak is hanging in the garage waiting for better days!
A beautiful accessory to brighten these short cold days!
Love your posts. The one showing your home is especially good the way you have combined family pieces with new & old finds gives your home that collected over time look that I love!
That is a gorgeous scarf.. My favorite colors!
A beautiful accessory for these short, cold days!
Love blues, my favorite color. Enjoy reading about your adventures. Live life to the fullest.
Thank you, Susan, for the beautiful scenery. You have helped me look at my wardrobe differently. Thanks, also, for the beauty tips.
Beautiful scarf. Thank you for sharing ways to safely get out of the house!
The scarf is beautiful and I sure would love to Win It. Enjoyed your blog today and your outfit.
Beautiful pictures! You and Mr. Mickey always look so classy! I have copied many of your looks and have given up much of my compulsive buying. Thank you for bringing style to the forefront again.
I love the look of the scarf – just my colors. Thanks for all your advice. It has changed how I dress!
Enjoy the blog today in your beautiful outfit. Love the scarf also and sure hope he randomly draws mine!
Susan, you have such beautiful scenery in your area. I know you and Mr. Mickey enjoy all those outings. I love the scarf also.
Beautiful lake! The clothing is perfect but the scarf is superb! Would be lovely to win it. Have a fantastic week!
Spectacular views! And you two look spiffy! Thanks for letting us peak into your sweet world!
What a gorgeous day you and Mr. Mickey enjoyed on that beautiful lake! You and Mr. Mickey are both classics, and I always love seeing your happy adventures. You have had a profound influence on my wardrobe and clothing style as I enjoy my 60’s. Thank you and Mr. Mickey both!
What a lovely scenic place for an outing!! I love the way you and Mr.Mickey are always so appropriately attired for every occasion!! I hope it was a wonderful day from start to finish! By the way, the scarf is beautiful!
What a beautiful country we live in! I never tire of exploring and enjoying nature and our natural resources. As always, you look perfect and very classy for the day! I enjoy your day trips!
I have purchased a few of your scarves and enjoy them very much. I’ve also received a few compliments on the them as well.
We live near you and would like to visit the lake as well.
Enjoy your outings.
You and Mr. Mickey always have the best adventures ! The scarf is so beautiful – the colors are the same as in the photographs of the lake !
Good evening, Susan. Out here in Texas I love to wear scarves. I am missing a beautiful blue!
Looks like a beautiful, windy day! You both look healthy and happy! So wonderful!
Thankyou for the beautiful scenic pictures at this time of year. I love the scarf you are wearing in the pictures!
Woo hoo! Navy blue! Goes with 90% of the clothes in my closet! These lake pictures are beautiful! What a great way to get out a little and still stay safe.
What a lovely scarf. I’d love to wear it!
What a lovely spot to take photos. You both look great as usual and I especially Like Mr. Mickeys vest.
Beautiful scarf! Beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing. You two should come visit the beautiful Oregon coast when things open up and you are looking for another adventure.
I love how much you enjoy each other! You’re always on the move and looking for new adventures.
Beautiful scarf—for some reason it reminds me of a Parcheesi board.
Dear Susan, your scarf reflects the colours of the beautiful photos you have shared from your lovely day out exploring a lake I never knew about! Thank you for sharing a window into your world! Stay safe.
My oldest sister loved to wear scarfs. This one would have looked great on her.
Thank you for showing pictures of your travels with Mr. Mickey. My husband retires in June of 2021 and we are planning a trip to Tennessee. I can hardly wait after seeing all the pics of your beautiful state.
That is an absolutely beautiful scarf and I love wearing blue. I hope to be chosen to win this scarf. Thank you
Blue is my favorite color! Blue and white is timeless.
Lovely pix. so nice of both of you.
I wish your friends and there clothing business would decide to sell on Amazon.
That would make everyone pleased for a very long time.
Being on SS I can’t always shop when there is a big sale and have to wait.
Please pass this along to them, they can stay in business online.
Love your blog – you are so lucky to have a willing companion in Mr. Mickey!
This scarf is a great accent to the beautiful pictures that you just showed. I love blue!!
I love seeing pictures of your travels. I used to live near Blacksburg Va and this reminds me of that beautiful area. Its so nice you have your travel partner to share the moments. Cheers.
Beautiful scarf. I’ve learned so much from your blog. I’m 60 and still working as an executive. Wish i woukd have read it years ago. I could have saved a lot on misfires in my wardrobe. Thank you
Lovely scarf. It’s perfect to add class to a blue jeans outfit!
I love Watauga Lake. I was there about 15 months ago. You live in a beautiful part of our state! We have been in the Smokies the past few days and enjoyed the snow and Christmas lights in Gatlinburg last night. The colors in this scarf are beautiful and remind me of the Smoky Mountains!
You and Mr Mickey are so classy. The scarf is beautiful and I would love to win it. I always enjoy your blog.
Does Mr. Mickey have a brother who is single? If so tell him to come to see me here in Missouri. You both are fortunate to have each other to have someone to take these wonderful trips with each weekend. I very much enjoy everything that you post. Thanks for all of the fantastic styling tips also!
I really enjoy your website. Your fashion tips have helped me to make better wardrobe choices. I had a closet full of clothes with “with nothing to wear!” Thank you for helping!!
So good to see you both enjoying life in these trying times. Glad Mr. Mickey has recovered from his break.
I really enjoy your website. You’ve helped me make better fashion choices. I had a closet full of clothes and “nothing to wear!” Your fashion choices have really made a difference. It is difficult for me to find clothing that is age-appropriate. Thank you!!
Cool refreshing breezes surround you both in your photos. How perfect to nuzzle up with a beautifully detailed scarf on such a day! I love your choice of this featured scarf as paisley patterns are one of my favorites. I even have silver dining & serving pieces with the pattern called ‘White Paisley’ !!
I like blue.
Beautiful lake! Beautiful couple!
I love your adventure’s! My husband & I recently had our pictures taken with our 4 granddaughter’s & I had one of your scarves, on!!
How refreshing to see your outdoor adventures at a time when we are all too much indoors! The blues of the lovely scarf reflect the sky and the lake, and lift the spirits!
Beautiful blue, my favorite color.
Love the beautiful pictures of the lake!
Love your blog! It brightens my day to read about your and Mr Mickey’s adventures. This scarf is beautiful, i am working toward organizing my clothes and closet like yours. This would be a great addition.
The scarf is beautiful. Have you ever thought of doing individual consultations? An individual could share information about their body and lifestyle and you could recommend appropriate styles. You have so much knowledge about how to dress in order to flatter body types. Of course, we would pay for your advice.
I have found the information difficult to convey without meeting in-person to work in your closet, but I am willing to try.
The lake looks beautiful. I always enjoy seeing your photos of the beautiful scenery . Thanks for posting photos of yourself and Mr. Mickey. You both look great.
The scarf is sooo gorgeous, I hit the link to a similar scarf you wore to Watauga Lake and it’s sold out. So sad. I had the pleasure of purchasing a scarf from you and just adore it. I get so many compliments when I wear it and I always feel “dressed up” when I am wearing it. The scarf provided for the giveaway is gorgeous and sure to lift a persons spirits with all the COVID precautions we are currently having to face. Needless to say, I would be so tickled if I was the chosen recipient of this beautiful scarf. Thank you.
Love your blog! Love Gourmet and Company also!!
Dear Susan, you and Mr. Mickey make such a handsome couple. It’s so nice to see you both together and happy and healthy.
This is such a beautiful scarf. I would love to own it.
We have been to Cherokee and to the Unto These Hills production. Love the entire Appalachian Mountain area. At one time we owned acreage on a mountain south of Black Mountain, North Carolina.
The scarf reminds me so much of the tiles and mosaics of Morocco. I was so lucky to have visited there in 2019. The colors in the light there just glow.Blue is a favorite color.
MR MICKEY PLEASE CHOOSE MY NAME!!
I’ll be counting the minutes until I see my name posted
Such beautiful pictures! You both look fantastic and classy; as always.
Thank you for showing various ways to wear an outfit.
I do, so appreciate it.
My favorite of your scarves so far!
Always a pleasure to find a message from you in my inbox. I’m living vicariously enjoying your adventures with Mr Mickey. Best holiday wishes to you both!
Thanks for your generosity in doing a giveaway of that lovely blue scarf! Keeping my fingers crossed.
Best regards from New Hampshire,
It’s been like Christmas all year long with you’re wonderful giveaways!,
Best of all it’s been fun going with you on you’re drive trips.
Thanks so much.
Lovely scenery and lovely scarf!
Your blog has been such an inspiration to me, and I enjoy seeing all the great destinations for your outings!
Love this blog,as always! What beautiful scenery for you,and Mr Micky to enjoy, and share with us! Beautiful scarf as well! I would love to win!
Beautiful scarf and in my favorite colors.
Bonjour, Vous êtes très élégants tous les deux, comme d’habitude. Magnifiques photos qui font rêver.
I want to thank you for all the information you have on your blog. I found it earlier this year and I have been very grateful. I now am buying clothes that are basic and classic and with much better quality. I have way too many clothes that I thought were cute and inexpensive, but when I brought them home I may have worn it once and never again. I have been an impulsive shopper. Thanks to you I have changed my buying habit. Thanks for sharing your outings, there are so many beautiful and interesting location and your lunches and dinners look wonderful. With God’s help I can’t wait for this pandemic to pass and I can once again enjoy going to lunch, visiting with family and friends.
Thank you, and may you and Mr. Mickey stay safe.
Beautiful pictures. I just love receiving your emails for all of your traveling, fashion, etc. I love scarfs. Have a blessed day to you and Mickey.
Lovely blog Susan, what a beautiful area you live in. Your outfit is perfect and finished with the wonderful scarf. I love to wear a scarf as I think it can lift an outfit and make an ordinary outfit buzz. So generous with your giveaways, thanks you. X
love your style and mr mickeys. you always find interesting places to visit and post. thanks for all you do.
You and Mr.Mickey always look the handsome couple.
The lake is beautiful and it looks like a fun outing.
What a beautiful place! Thanks for sharing your photos.
What a beautiful scarf, and in my colors! I’d love to have it! Thanks for your consideration.
Beautiful photos as always; I really enjoy seeing your area.
Such beautiful pictures. Makes me feel peaceful. I always enjoy seeing the pictures of your adventures.
Also, I am ordering the sweater in gray. It is a great alternative to heavier sweaters and tunic tops.
And I love the scarf!
Your posts are always beautiful, informative, inspiring, and balanced. Thank you for sharing your strength and vulnerabilities with us all.
This scarf is classically elegant with beautiful colors. I appreciate your simple, always appropriate, comfortable style; you teach me how to wear my clothes better!
I am a quilter, and this beautiful scarf reminds me of a medallion quilt with a center block surrounded by borders. I can imagine wearing this to my guild meeting in the Spring.
I’d like to take this opportunity to send a heartfelt thank you to you (and Mr Micky) for your wonderful, wonderful blog, especially this year when we are living in such difficult circumstances. I live in England and due to health conditions have been isolating for 39 weeks so far. I have lived my life vicariously this year and have enjoyed your wardrobe and trips out with the greatest of pleasure. Thank you both.
What a beautiful location and the scarf is perfect!
This is incredibly beautiful!!!! Thank you for your blog, it is so uplifting.
Lovely lake, lovely scarf. Thanks for sharing your adventure with us.
Blessings! Enjoying your travels and style tips! I think that beautiful scarf would look great on me here in the Hill Country in south central Texas!
What a gorgeous Blue scarf
As always I love your style (and Mr Mickeys!) and your blog.
During this time of Covid I love reading about your adventures and I live vicariously through the pictures you share.
Thanks for making my days at home more enjoyable!
May both of you have a wonderful holiday season.
Love all the virtual tours in these trying times. Thanks.
YOu look lovey as usual! Mr. Mickey is looking good too!
Lovely lake and a lovely couple …thank you for sharing!
Thanks for another opportunity to win a giveaway. I would love the scarf. Keep up the good work!
Fabulous scarf. Thank you for your blog.
love your post. I love to have the scarf.
What a lovely day you had at the lake. You two are lucky to have each other!
When I was a little girl I loved the blue corn flowers growing near our home. To this day I smile when I see that color.
One of my all time favorite colors is navy. When you put the two together I’m one happy camper. To see the beauty in nature and surround ourselves with it is one of life’s simple pleasures. I’d love to win this scarf because it is something happy in these somewhat bleak days. So let’s ALL wrap ourselves in a little happiness!
You live in a beautiful part of the country. Thank you so much for sharing. May you and Mickey have many years of adventures.
That is a beautiful scarf. Your pictures make me want to make a trip to Tennessee. It has been years since we were there and I missed so many pretty sites. Covid has made us be outside much more and appreciate God’s creations. Enjoy nature.
The scarf is beautiful and would go with several pieces in my closet. In fact I have been shopping for a scarf in those colors.
Thank you for this giveaway.
The lake and surrounding mountains are lovely..
I am a blue lover. This scarf is beautiful! Sure hope I win this. It will go with a lot of different outfits.
Susan, you helped me change my shopping mistakes! I basically threw things out as I replaced with better basics. What a lifesaver this has been to go to my closet and not just stand there! Love your blog and all the ideas! Many thanks to you ,
What a beautiful scarf. The colors are rich. I have the perfect outfit to wear the scarf with. As always I love reading your blog. Thank you.
Thank you for sharing your part of the country! Beautiful scarf!
Thanks for your uplifting blog! It’s especially appreciated during this challenging year!
Susan — I appreciate seeing the natural beauty of TN and getting new ideas for my own wardrobe. I like the casual look. Mr Mickey looks quite dapper.
Thank you fir sharing the natural beauty of TN with us!!! You both look great in the pictures. Love the casual look!
Thanks for taking us along on your drive! Surrounded by the same 4 walls day in, day out, i could almost feel the nip in the breeze along the lake. I always learn from your thoughtful clothing choices – thank you! And it was great to see Mr M posing for the camera. Hope to see more of him for ideas for my husband’s wardrobe.
What a treasure of a scarf~a classic, indeed! I would love wearing and caring fir this beauty! Thank you for sharing, Susan!!
I greatly miss all of the beautiful scarves that you used to sell in your store. I received many of them, fortunately. This would be beautiful to add to my collection.
Charmingly rich abd beautiful scarf which I would treasure abd enjoy! Thank you, Susan, for sharing!!
Susan, your scarves are gorgeous and you always look stunning wearing them. Not sure I would do it the same justice but I’d love to try!
Stunning scarf~a classic my winsome accessory which I’d be honored to wear and to care for!
BIRTHDAY Beautiful! The scarf is my color and Christmas day,my birthday, 69th!
Seriously thank you for the picture-trips you take us on and all the wonderful things. I’ve bought several things you’ve shown on your site. Love them! I love that you include Me Mickey’s attire as well. Dapper!!!
Smiles, Molly B
I enjoy your website! Beautiful pictures also.
What a lovely scarf! It would look fabulous with my new lavender coat!
YOU and Mr. Mickey are the sweetest couple together. And, Mr. Mickey is handsome.
Wow! What a beautiful lake! I have put Tennessee at the top of my travel bucket list. It is a state that I have only briefly passed through but it obviously has much to offer as a destination. Thank you for highlighting the historical places, small towns and natural beauty to be found in your home state.
I’m enjoying reading about all your wonderful day trips. We’ve been to Tennessee many times since we have family there, but you’re helping us discover new areas to explore when we can travel again. I love all shades of blue, so I would love to win the scarf.
What a joy it’s been to visit all these places along with you and Mr Mickey, it’s inspired us to just get dressed smartly and take a drive and picnic, while trying to stay within all the COVID protocols . Thank you both so much, the scarf is beautiful, by the way.
I love all of the pictures you have shared of your various road trips. Once we can travel again, I think my husband and I need to explore the areas you have highlighted. Today’s pictures of the lake are gorgeous.
Love the photos of your road trips – I am living vicariously as nothing equivalent in Houston. Plus can’t get my husband to budge!
Thanks for all your great advise and your beautiful pictures. We just retired this year and cannot travel as we had hoped so I enjoy seeing pictures of your adventures. Thanks to Mr. Mickey too for sharing his fashion with us.
Beautiful scarf. Would live to have it.
I truly enjoy your blog. You have a beautiful flair for style.
Such a beautiful scene with the lake as a backdrop. Susan, you always look so classy and lovely whatever the occasion. Oh, and Mr. Mickey looks handsome, as always too!
A very handsome couple indeed, in a gorgeous location! I look forward to reading your blog because of all your adventures! We are under Covid lockdown & I so miss travelling! Instead I travel with you!
Beautiful scarf ..beautiful adventures!!
The scenery is lovely. I enjoy reading your blog. What a beautiful scarf!
Hey Susan, it’s Anna again. As always, I love yours and Mr Mickeys attire for your day at the lake. I love the pictures you post during your adventures together. You are so fortunate to have someone who likes to take you on adventures though simple sometimes but meaningful ones.
I would love to have one if your beautiful scarves. I love seeing how you style them each time you wear one. Please choose me Mr. Mickey.
Beautiful blue lake, beautiful blue scarf! I can’t begin to tell you Susan, and Mr. Mickey, how much I look forward to your get away posts! The days of Covid are long, and your blogs are an adventure for me! Stay safe, and God bless! Kathleen Gibboni
Sublime cool colors!
It always cheers me to see a post from you in my mail and I love that you include history and beautiful pictures
and so nice to see. Mr Mickey!
Thank you for taking us along on your adventures!
Beautiful view and scarf.
What is your favorite pair of earrings? Or the ones you wear with the necklace you gave away last week?
Love all your advice and adventures…
My favorite pair of earrings are tiny white gold and pearls. They can be worn with anything, including statement necklaces, since they are so small.
I bought this scarf and I LOVE it! The winner will be very happy with it. Beautiful quality, great colors, and a good size to use in various ways!!
Love all your outfits. You and Mr. Mickey always look polished. Would love to win the scarf.
What a fabulously beautiful scarf! Thanks for sharing. Linda
Hi Susan! The blues in this beautiful scarf will no doubt brighten my quarantine blues!
Mr. Mickey, I’d love to win the scarf!
Hi Susan! Thank you for posting pictures of your outdoor travels and adventures for the rest of us, who are stuck close to home, to enjoy vicariously! I wish “my Mr. Mickey” would enjoy getting out and seeing the sites as Mr. Mickey does. You are fortunate to have so many lovely day-trip destinations where you live, and we are fortunate that you so generously share your photos. 😀
Susan, how nice you and Mr. Mickey share life’s adventures! My husband and I enjoy our adventures, too!
One could never have “the blues” wearing this gorgeous scarf! I have lived in southwestern Virginia and western North Carolina for forty years now, and I always enjoy reading about your excursions into our region. Some areas are more familiar than others, but you always present the best of our region, and make me want to explore more. Thank you, Susan!
Your adventures are an inspiration helping me get out of my Covid funk. Thank you!
Your fashion ideas and comments are so inspiring. I also enjoy vicariously sharing all your excursions!!!
Susan, would love to be picked to win this beautiful scarf. Have purchased several of your scarves in the past. Enjoy your blog every day. Stay safe…
What a gorgeous scarf!! I love seeing you in royal blue, and I love wearing rich blues. I hope Mr. Mickey picks me
Thank you for sharing so many beautiful areas of Tennessee with us! I will retire from teaching in June and we will be moving from Northern California to Savannah, TN. I can’t wait to explore more of the Volunteer State and Watuga Lake!
Susan, it looks like you had a wonderful day. Yes. Please put me in for the giveaway. The scarf is gorgeous. Thank you, Audrey Kramer
Love the scarfs and your styling of them. You make them look so classy!
Beautiful scarf. I enjoy seeing the many scarves that you were in your photos. Enjoy the holiday season.
The lake was beautiful. Please enter me into the drawing for that lovely scarf. Mr. Mickie, Pick Me!
It’s always great to see what new and interesting places you and Mr. Mikey take us, Susan. Makes me want to visit all of them.
It’s always a pleasure to start my day with a smile as I read your blog. Both of you always look sharp and put-together. Love the stories and photos of your adventures. Thanks for the fun and comfort during this chaotic year.
Take several shades of blue, a paisley print, and add some lace effects – how could I go wrong with this scarf!
I so enjoy reading your posts! Even during a pandemic, you show us what style is all about and how to enjoy activities safely! Happy Holidays!
I love your travel photos. We have’t traveled much this year so enjoy a few minutes of your adventures!
Beautiful couple! I envy you both…in a good way.
Perfect colors for an autumn pallet! Thanks for the fun give a ways!!
Thank you so much for sharing so many beautiful pictures on your drives with Mickey. We live in Florida now but we are from Charlotte, N.C. I miss the changing of the seasons especially the fall colors. I look forward to your blogs and all that I’ve learned. Love, love the scarf, blue is my favorite color. May you and Mickey have a blessed holiday season and continue to stay safe.
Watauga Lake looks beautiful! (You and Mr. Mickey look great, too!)
Susan- You always share gorgeous photos- this time you’ve surpassed yourself! Post- covid, I’m definitely driving down from Connecticut to see some of the sights and eat at the restaurants you feature.
One thing about your style that has impressed me and changed the way I want to look- you put together casual outfits that don’t look “put together.” There’s such a refined ease to your outfits. I’ll keep reading, because you always inspire me.
I love your blog. You have given my closet (and me) a new lease on life. Such a simpler yet still stylish way of dressing. And to make it even better I love your adventure pics with Mr Mickey!
What a beautiful part of the world you live in – thank you for sharing.
The scarf completely reflects the lake colours and surrounding countryside so perfectly
Love this combo for a scarf!!!!
Love that you share your adventures Susan. And it’s always nice that you tell where you get your clothes.–And Mr. Mickey”s clothes also-so we can dress our hubby just as nicely as him!
I’m so excited to see your pictures of Watauga Lake. I just passed this lake on my Appalachian Trail virtual walk. I enjoyed my hike through Tennessee. Now I can relate to some of the areas you share with us. Thank you so much for the encouragement to look and feel good as we age. Love Pat
I have learned to appreciate the value of a scarf as an accessory, thanks to you Susan! The scarf will
Make a beautiful addition to anyone’s collection.
You and Mr Mickey make wonderful ambassadors for your state and local areas. I didn’t know there were such interesting and beautiful areas that close to Johnson City. Hoping to get there one day..
Day trips are so revitalizing! Even vicarious ones!
Thank you ~ I enjoy seeing beautiful Tennessee again.
I so love all the help with fashion and love pictures of your house.
Love the pictures of your travels with Mr. Mickey, the fashion tips, and the giveaway!
The colors of the sky, water, and earth seen in these pictures are reflected in that scarf. Beautiful!
The blues in the scarf reminds me of the sky and the lake.
Mr Mickey’s beard is so short for this time of year. So sad he won’t get to be Santa for the kiddos. I always enjoy seeing this pics. Enjoy the holidays safely.
Would love to win the beautiful scarf!
Susan and Mickey
Love both of your looks 🙂
Glad to see Mr. Mickey out motivating again!! At my age, it takes me twice as long to recuperate from half as much!! LOL Rejoicing with you in your healing!
Thank you for the beautiful pictures, Susan, and that scarf is lovely.
I look forward to your blog every Tuesday and Thursday as I sip my morning coffee. I feel like my day is brighter and enriched when I read your blog. I had no idea about Watauga Lake in TN. Lovely lake and sailing too! My husband and I are looking for a place to retire and JC seems to meet all the needs especially sailing!
You always look so confident and chic. I am learning to shop my closet and only buy pieces I know I can wear with multiple items in my closet. I am 5’2″ and petite so large jewelry pieces look out of proportion on me. Scarves are the perfect addition to my wardrobe. I love your tips for dressing for your day when we all are spending more time at home.
Thank you Susan for the Travel log (along with your wardrobe ideas ). I’m not traveling AT ALL so your adventures with Mr Mickey really mean a lot.
Blessings and Happy Adventuring,
I would love to be the new owner of this pretty blue and tan paisley scarf.
The Watauga Lake is beautiful, so nice it’s close to your home.
Katherine in Arizona
Susan and Mr. Mickey – Thank you for allowing us to tag along on your outdoor adventures. These posts are always a bright spot in my day as I now spend most of my days indoors with my 84 year old mom. I just pretend I’m sitting in the back seat of one of your classic cars as you both drive along enjoying the beauty of your area. Just remember to keep the top up or my hair will be a mess!
Such a classy looking couple out road tripping enjoying a beautiful day out together. Thanks you for sharing your style and adventures!
Beautiful colors in the scarf!
Lovely scarf. It would look great, added to my wardrobe!
Thank you once again for sharing your style, adventures, and beautiful pictures! Wishing you a lovely Christmas season.
Dear Susan! I love your classic relaxed style. As a retired teacher, I have had many different wardrobes and am now trying to hone a sustainable classic relaxed wardrobe which will take me anywhere. Your habit of dressing for the day regardless of the schedule has really resonated with me. The better I look the better I feel. Comfort and chic casual are doable and accessories help elevate neutral outfits. Thanks for teaching this teacher by example!
I enjoy repurposing my items to friends and charities. Your giveaways are brilliant! Part of the sustainability attitude. Well done.
In particular, I love the scarf and appreciate that the warm blue pattern would fit perfectly with my colour palette. I would love to be gifted this scarf! Pick me please!
Your Canadian follower,
This blue beauty would chase away any shelter at home “blues” I might have!
Ah…blue is my favorite color, so many shades and perfect for wearing, decorating and enjoying in nature. Lovely photos!
We live on a small lake, and there is nothing more beautiful than a bright blue sky reflected in the waters! Thanks for helping us ‘visually travel’!
I love how you and Mr. Mickey find a way to get out and enjoy life, during this difficult time. You live in such a beautiful area….great for your explorations!
Greetings from Ontario, Canada. Such a lovely scarf! Enjoy your and Mr,Mickey’s adventures, love the posted pics of your travels.(and also your meals.)
Love the black ballet flats.
Dear Susan, Your featured scarf is beautiful and I would love to add it to my wardrobe. I wear lots of navy and since I have let my hair go natural this would be striking with my silver hair.
I envy you having a partner to travel around your area with the pandemic in full swing. I’ve been a widow for over 20 yrs and have become more of a stay at homer! I’m in Los Angeles county California and it’s a long busy drive to get out into the country. My husband and I left northwestern Pennsylvania years ago and I miss the scenic country drives.
Thanks for your blogs, I enjoy them. Judy Winschel
What a lovely scarf! It’s as beautiful as the pictures you take!
I love to follow your adventures! Thank you for letting us in for a glimpse into your life, fashion, and skin routines!
Thanks again for your wardrobe guidance; it feels wonderful to be elegant & comfortable at the same time! Your practical posts have helped me purge & purchase the necessary items to fill in my wardrobe gaps. Keep your posts & lovely photos coming. Thanks to Mr. Mickey also!
Love, love the scarf!
Love all your posts!
We live in the West coast and besides 3 vacation trips to New England, DC and Florida, we have never been to the rest of the East coast. Full time babysitting grandkids due to school closure is what we do this year. Your beautiful blogs are one of the bright spots in this dreary time. I so look forward to being able to resume our travel and rest assured we’ll visit the southeastern part of the country because of your blog. Your pictures are the best, style wise as well as geographical, historical and picture quality. I wish you and Mr. Mickey a merry Christmas and a peaceful new year!
PS. And yes, I would like to enter the giveaway. The color is lovely. Thanks.
I love all your travel pictures. Living within a few hours drive from your posted travels gives me options for future weekend adventures.
I adorable the give away scarf. I try to follow your suggestions when dressing with scarfs.
Thank you Joan
Susan I look forward to your posts. Your style and hints on how to achieve them are wonderful. My way of dressing
WOW! Can I buy that scarf if I don’t win? The scarf is absolutely gorgeous and would fit in with my Navy clothing perfectly
Yes, I have a couple more on hand. I’ll send you the info.
That is a gorgeous scarf! You have such exquisite taste! Best of all, it is the most beautiful blue color that is my favorite! I’m blonde haired & blue eyed, so I know it would look good on me!
Thank you for your posts! I look forward to them every week. I love your style & all the tips you share.
Take good care,
Do you have a brother?
I have enjoyed all your travel pictures. So I will take advantage of these areas that you go, for living within a few hours will be a wonderful day adventure, for me. Thank you.
Also I love the scarf you are giving away. I do follow your suggestions in wearing them, even purchase the magnets.
Thank you, you inspire me, Joan
Love the scarf. I was just looking for a scarf in medium blue for an outfit I was wearing for my weekly drive I take with my older sister. It’s our way of breaking the monotony of being closed in with our husbands for all these months. We live in Louisville, and have so many beautiful areas to drive to around Kentucky and Southern Indiana, so much as it is in Tennessee. We like to always drive on a new road each time which makes it an adventure.
I started using scarves more when my husband and I retired and we started traveling more. Scarves cut down on packing when you can change the look of an outfit with a simple change of scarves. I enjoy your fashion tips and examples, they are always a welcome read.
Thanks so much and stay safe.
I visited Louisville for the first time a couple of years ago. What a beautiful area!
I really enjoy your blog. Thank you for helping so many people with your ideas, tips, and expertise.
I always love your look & Mr Mickey’s too.
The pictures you send are always so beautiful.
I’ve purchased some of the items you wear – love the pearl lariat necklace & I just received my chunky silver bracelet – it looks so elegant!
I’m 75 & live in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada
Always look forward to your weekly blogs.
Blue is my most favorite color!!
Lovely scarf reminds me of Wedgewood China! I am a redhead and that blue is particularly becoming, would love to own it.
Thank you for graciously giving us a window into your life and for all the useful style tips too!
Beautiful scarf I would love to add to my wardrobe, hoping for luck in that regard. Thanks for all you great tips and advice. Dianne
Mr. Mickey looks so much like my husband! My heart just flutters every time you share a photo of him. Imagine that, after 47 years of marriage, he’s still the love of my life. Thanks for sharing!
I have such a difficult time choosing a good scarf! I appreciate your suggestions and advice. Thank you!
You have such beautiful, classic taste. The scarf is gorgeous! I wear those colors all the time. Because of you, I’ve added several scarves to my wardrobe.
What a beautiful scarf! I’d love for it to be mine. Karen Wills
The scenery is beautiful and it’s great that you and Mr Mickey are finding ways to still embrace life during the epidemic. The scarf is beautiful and the colors remind me of my favorite spot on Lake Michigan.
I hope to visit Mackinac Island soon. It has been on my bucket list for years.
I love your style. In the last couple months I saw you on Pinterest and have subscribed to your blog! I love that Mr Mickey enjoys being a part of the blog and love going on adventures with you. I love your scarf above.
Love this scarf! The scenery is beautiful in this pic. I don’t live in Tennessee anymore, but I’ll always be a Tennessee girl at heart! Have a great day!
That design would make a beautiful quilt!
I love the scarf! I wear scarves frequently because they totally change the look of an outfit. Thank you for all of your awesome ideas!
I love that you include Mr Mickey in your blog. I’ve been trying to get my husband to wear a vest for awhile now and he seemed impressed by Mr Mickey’s!
I love to see gentlemen wearing a vest with a collared shirt. It is a handsome look for most.
Thank you for bring us along on this little outing —beautiful photos. I look forward to all of your posts. Pictures of the handsome Mr. Mickey are an added bonus!
With the pandemic, you and Mr. Mickey pick the most beautiful places to visit on the east coast.
Love the scarf! It will go with so many of my outfits!!
Scarves are my favorite accessory. Love yours! Love the East Tennessee scenery. Keep it coming.
Thank you both for your wonderful pictures and encouraging words. Lynda
What a beautiful scarf! And just my colors!
Such a beautiful lake setting! Thanks for sharing it with us, and for generously offering this beautiful scarf to someone too!
Thank you for your wonderful posts. I love seeing the pictures from your travels around your local area. The Lake is wonderful, but it was also really interesting seeing the pictures you took in, a previous post, of local houses. The scarf is gorgeous, but as I live in the UK I wouldn’t want to put you to the cost of posting it here, so if by some chance this post waschosen my Mr Mickey, please feel free to randomly pick another one 🙂
Love the scarf design and such a generous size. Would work very well with my brown and navy neutrals. You both look great and make a lovely couple.
I love a new scarf!
Does Mr Mickey have a brother ?
He does, but they are so very different.
Your pictures are just beautiful! I’m always so inspired by your and Mr. Mickey’s adventures. I lived in Boone for over 20 years (now in Asheville), and I remember well driving over to Watauga Lake. Even if you’re not on (or in!) the lake, it’s just a beautiful drive around it; and it has a special beauty in the winter, too, with the leaves off the trees. Thank you for the trip down memory lane! ~CS
Loved the pictures of you and Mickey by the lake and the mountains. We do not have any mountains here in Florida. I miss that change of seasons, but enjoy the palm trees when fall comes. No more leaves to rake.
The color in the scarf are beautiful. Once we hit seventy, it is great to wear scarves to hid the neckline.
Love your posts. Stays safe and keep them coming.
Hope you are having a great day–I always enjoy your post and from time to time I look back on your older ones. I knew that you had talked about “Layering without Bulk” I found it from Dec 2, 2019. Just wanted to let you know how much I do enjoy your post. Take care
I love seeing pictures of your lovely countryside and the adventures that you and Mr. Mickey go on! Living here in the southwest our landscape is very different but beautiful in its own way. You both always look fabulous!
Love the scarf! Thank you so much! I have ordered several from you before and enjoy them….The blue is perfect!
Beautiful scarf that has the same color hues of the lake and nature. They are all colors I love. Please keep taking adventure trips and posting photos.
Thanks for the beautiful pictures!
Gorgeous scarf! I usually not a scarf person, but with this I could be. Such wonderful colors!
I have truly enjoyed reading your thoughts (and about your trips) on Pinterest – please continue with them.
I love your blog. You are such a classy, beautiful lady.
This is exactly the scarf I’ve been looking for! Can you share where I can purchase one? 2020 isn’t the year I see my luck changing and I never win anything.
Love your blog and your adventures with Mr. Mickey.
Such a stunning color pattern. I love it!
I’ve been wanting to try wearing scarves the many ways you show but haven’t found any large ones like this. The ones I find are usually narrow and long. I would love winning this.
Glad to see how great Mr. Mickey looks after his health issues last year. My travel companion and I have been grateful for day trips around our area. We pick a road we’ve never been on before and just wander. All of 2020 hasn’t been terrible!
As the weather gets chillier do you wear knee-high or other hosiery to stay warm?
I do wear tights or pantyhose to stay warm. I find that knee-highs always show through the pant legs.
Absolutely beautiful! Blue is my favourite color! Would love to wear this!
Hi Mr Mickey! I love that Susan included your wardrobe picks! You always look so “put together”, and handsome! I can see you two have fun and that what’s it’s all about, right?
Always enjoy your photos and tips!
What beautiful places y’all visit!!
Thank you for sharing them and your classic style. Love the scarf too. Mr. Mickey looks snazzy!
What a beautiful scarf! I would enjoy wearing it for a splash of color.
I love your blog Susan. You always give
