We spent this past weekend at The Swag, a country Inn located on a mountain top in Waynesville, North Carolina. The property shares a border with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The lodge is the perfect place to relax in the cool mountain air, and there are miles of trails to hike for the whole day. If you go, be sure to take casual clothes and a jacket. It was more than twenty degrees cooler on the top of the mountain than in Johnson City.
Thia, the lodge cat, seems to be saying, “Put down that camera and hold me on your lap.”
I snapped the above photo from our little private balcony.
A social hour is held on the porch before dinner each evening. On Friday evening, I wore a print tunic by Clara Sunwoo from ShopMyFairLady.com. I rarely wear a print, but this one will work with all my pant colors, and it is more geometric than floral, so I bought it to give a bit of zing to my mostly solid summer wardrobe. The jeggings are from last year by Chico’s. The necklace is from French Kande here. The ballet flats are by J. Renee via Dillard’s.
At sunrise the next morning, I headed out for a nice long hike on the property and the Park.
The photo above shows the early morning view from the Inn’s porch. I hope you enjoyed the snapshots of a bit of our weekend get-away to celebrate Mr. Mickey’s birthday.
