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.
The perfect topper can make all the difference in a basic black look. I wanted to add a bit of pizzaz 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 it would surely 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 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, herbs and flowers are 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.
