Saturday Evening

After a long day of attending the car show and exploring the area, we dressed for another excellent dinner at the Harvest Grill located on the grounds of Shelton Vineyards.





Behind me above is the stage area on the vineyard. Live music performances are held here every year.


My Prince and chariot await!


We watched the sunset over the vineyard from our table by the flower gardens.


Grouper was the evening’s special.


We enjoyed another perfect evening at the Harvest Grill!


My travel bag held all of the pieces I own from my clothing line for this trip. This evening, I wore the thin strap tank dress that first convinced me I needed to locate this line and offer it to you. The white linen biker style jacket is old. I found it on a sale rack at Stein Mart a couple of summers ago.

When we arrived, I took everything out of the bag and hung it up. After a few hours, it didn’t even need steaming. The pieces interchanged with all the other items I brought perfectly. I kept the palette simple with black and white pieces, but I have never felt more confident and comfortable on a trip.

I packed several scarves but only used the silk shawl in yesterday’s post due to the heat. Scarves take up no space in your luggage, but they can significantly change the look of your basics.


Upon my return home, I machine washed all the pieces in cold water and hung them on a felted hanger to air dry. They turned out beautifully and ready to pack for another trip!

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are indeed the best!

  1. I love your new clothing line and would really enjoy wearing everything you have shown. Simple,sophisticated and easy. However, living in and purchasing from Canada presents a challenge, particularly if the items need exchanging.
    Much success with everything……

  2. Susan, I followed you on Fifty not Frumpy and loved every email. I have ordered from Shop My Fair Lady and Covered Perfectly. I have been very happy with everything. You have taught me so much about dressing. I look forward to the next decade with you. You just turned 60. I just turned 70. I have recently lost weight thanks to your inspiration. I feel like I did in my thirties. Here’s to the next ten years!

I blogged for five years as Fifty, not Frumpy. Now that I am in my sixties, I am sharing ideas and inspiration for using and loving what you already have.

Thank you!
