Wearing clothing that is right for your coloring and your shape can give you loads of confidence. Strategic accessories add just the right personality to make the looks uniquely yours. When the clothing is also appropriate for the event and the weather, you can relax because you know you’ve made all the right choices.
We enjoyed another perfect dinner at Rowland’s at Westglow in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, on Saturday. The skies were a vivid clear blue, and the air was crisp, making it feel more like a September day.
My look for this date night included a white Trophy Jacket from White House|Black Market last year over a basic tank and pants from Chico’s a few years ago. The shoes are by Gianni Bini from Dillard’s last year. The bag is several years old from Stein Mart. My skincare line and makeup are all by Beautycounter here.
We sat at our favorite table in the sunroom, and Gary Brown paired wines with each course for us. He is the manager and a Certified Sommelier. It is always a pleasure to hear him explain the different wines and why they are a complement to the food we are about to enjoy. He is very knowledgeable, so his choices are always spot on.
For the first course, Mr. Mickey had the Bibb and Endive Salad with shrimp, and I had the ceviche.
For the main course, I had the Pan Seared North Carolina Snapper, and Mr. Mickey had the Grilled Ora King Salmon.
Mr. Mickey enjoyed the Macadamia Nut Tart.
I chose the Strawberry Rhubarb Shortcake for dessert.
This fabulous necklace was in my cart over at French Kande for awhile. Late last week, the necklace showed up at my door! Thank you, Kande and Lenn, for this generous gift. I will wear it many times. It is even more stunning in reality! It is here on the French Kande website.
