I have often shared my guidelines for deciding what to wear. First: Dress for the weather. Second: Dress for the event. Third: Dress for your personality. This week, the blog posts will share information about and examples of style personalities. You may have one dominant personality trait with one or more secondary characteristics.
On Saturday evening, we enjoyed a unique dinner event with my sister and her husband. We traveled to Mars Hill, North Carolina, for an excellent farm-to-table dining experience at The Farmer’s Hands Homestead. We would be exploring the farm and gardens before dinner, so we were encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes and dress casually. The Natural Style Personality would be very comfortable at this event.
The women who share the natural style personality wear very little makeup (think lip balm instead of lipstick). Their nails are short and natural. They enjoy a wash and wear hairstyle in their natural color and low comfortable shoes. Their color choices are neutral, and if they ever wear prints, they are small and faded out. The clothing is loose-fitting and often includes natural fabrics. If the natural woman wears any jewelry, it will likely be a small ring with sentimental value, such as a wedding ring or birthstone ring and possibly a watch.
Natural is not my primary personality trait, so I included a bold French Kande necklace and dark sunglasses to make this look my own. The delicate Murano glass gold and silver ring I am wearing was sent to me by Uno Alla Volta. The lightweight textured cotton shirt/jacket is by Focus via ShopMyFairLady.com here. The tank top and ankle jeans are my basics from Chico’s. The loafers are by Born Shoes from a couple of years ago.
Now on to the photos from our delightful evening on the farm.
The evening provided Mr. Mickey with his first experience of sipping wine from a mason jar while sitting on the front porch listening to mountain music.
Sebastiaan and Ariel Zijp are the owners of this magical piece of carefully planned and cultivated land surrounding a one hundred and fifty-year-old farmhouse. They provided us with an experience that tugged at my sister’s heartstrings and mine because we spent the first few years of life on a similar small farm not very far away from this one. Every part of the house, the gardens, and the farm brought back precious memories of our early childhood.
We look forward to returning to The Farmer’s Hands Homestead often to enjoy the excellent farm-to-table dining experience as well as the company of gracious hosts. They have created a delightful paradise on a mountain top.
