Just before Friday rush hour, we braved the rain to travel to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville.
The scarf served the purpose of keeping me warm when I wrapped it around my neck as we boarded the shuttle. Please excuse the poor quality of the pictures today. It is nearly impossible to get good images in abysmal lighting or driving rain. Below is Mr. Mickey’s look for the evening.
The sofas in front of th fireplace is always an inviting place to sit and listen to live music.
We enjoyed the artisan cheese plate with glasses of Biltmore wine.
Dinner was French Onion soup.
The purpose of our getaway was to celebrate thirteen years of dating. We always enjoy the slower pace and beautiful surroundings at the Biltmore Estate. There are several options for entertainment, dining, shopping and just sitting in front of a cozy fire while people-watching.
My travel wardrobe included the pink faux leather moto jacket, a silver/gray tank, light gray and dark navy, crew neck cashmere sweaters, and a navy wool blazer. The pants included olive jeggings, dark navy jeans, and black jeggings.
My accessories included black boots, a burgundy bag, a French Kande necklace, and two silk twill scarves in neutral colors.
As always, I packed and wore items that work together to create several effortless, comfortable and appropriate looks. The scarves added color, pattern, and warmth. (This was my most successful packing yet!) I’ll share more outfit photos on Wednesday and Friday.
The (Vintage Pink) faux leather moto jacket has sold out now. I bought it at Express. Here is a similar one. The cashmere sweaters are from Everlane here. The navy wool jacket is from J.Crew a couple of years ago. (Similar here) The dark navy jeans are from Liverpool Jeans Co here. The black and Montana Moss (olive) jeggings are from Chico’s here.
The Marc Fisher boots are here. The Dooney & Bourke Bordeaux bag is here. The French Kande necklace is here. The silk scarves are from my now closed shopping site. Referral and affiliate links in my posts may generate a small commission for Susan After 60 Inc. at no cost to you.
