Visiting The Greenbrier has been on my wish list for many years. On Friday morning, we set out for my first visit to America’s Resort to celebrate my September 13th birthday.
My passions for classic architecture, interior design, fine dining, fabulous gardens, and elegance were satisfied on a grand scale during our visit.
Read more about the Resort’s unique decor and Dorothy Draper, the pioneer in interior design here.
The Candy Maker was just down the stairs from our room.
The room was tranquil, comfortable, and conveniently located on the Cameo Ballroom’s first floor.
Can you guess who owns the Mickey Mouse luggage?
The first photos below show my very comfortable look for a long day of travel. On the rare occasions that I wear leggings, they must be completely opaque and have a wide, smooth waistband. The cotton hooded casual tunic was perfect for travel since I could also wear it as a bathing suit coverup or during my early morning walks. The tunic/jacket is by Focus via My Fair Lady. The salmon color Dooney & Bourke tote is the Pebble Grain Small Lexington Shopper.
After touring some of the Resort, we dressed for the evening. Rather than a large evening meal, we had a glass of wine and appetizers in the small pub close to the Cameo Ballroom.
Mr. Mickey is already working on his Santa beard.
I wore a black crepe knit tank and pants with a large silk scarf. The dressy black sandals by Kenneth Cole are old. The clutch bag is also old. The scarf is folded into a triangle and tied behind me to wear it as a shrug. My affiliate link for the French Kande necklace is here.

The items I brought with me for the first night didn’t seem dressy enough, so I created a more appropriate look using my dependable basics.
We had a delightful visit. I am looking forward to sharing more photos with you later this week.
