On a recent weekend getaway, Mr. Mickey and I visited a few of the many vineyards and wineries in our area. One of our favorites is Shelton Vineyards in Dobson, North Carolina. We always enjoy having dinner at the Harvest Grill.
I wore one of my favorite items from my collection for the first time. The perfect topper can make all the difference in a basic black look. I wanted to add a bit of pizzaz on this evening, but it was too warm to wear a jacket. Had I not been traveling, I would have worn openwork black high heeled sandals with this look. I brought short boots by French Connection on this trip because I thought that surely it would be cooler in the evenings.
This openwork sequined topper is perfect to pop over a black tank dress, a tank top and slim black pants or over a three-quarter sleeve top as I have shown here.
The grounds of the vineyard are full of surprises and small gardens. This one is by the creek and in summer there are herbs and flowers growing. The sculpture includes a gas tank. I love it when artists incorporate odd bits to create something beautiful.
Mr. Mickey is always dressed to impress. He inspires me to make the extra effort to look my best.
After working for countless hours over the past three months, my web designer tells me we are just a few hours away from launching the shopping site. I will announce the event and share the site with you as soon as we go live. I have been dreaming of this venture since I was a little girl playing store with my sister. I am so happy that you are here to share in my journey. Thank you for all your kind words and encouragement!
