Stripes and the Mountains



Well, Monday again!

How was your weekend?  Mine was fabulous.  I was actually able to sleep in Saturday and had a chance to take a quick nap on Sunday.  Those are rare!

One of the best things I love about living in Raleigh, NC is being 2 hrs. from the beach and 3 hrs. from the mountains.  We have the best of both worlds!  This weekend we spent time in the mountains.  My husband is a member at a golf club in the mountains and his member-guest tournament was this weekend.  So we all went.  The weather is usually a good 10 degrees cooler which was so nice.  I was able to wear my favorite white jeans without melting!  
Thursday nights' opening party was in a huge white tent overlooking the mountain range.  We had fabulous food and drinks and the entertainment was Diamond Rio, the country band.  I was a big country music fan in high school and have gotten back into it the last couple years.  So I was excited to see them perform.  It was the best intimate concert in a beautiful setting!


This is the outfit I wore Saturday to breakfast and into town for some shopping.  Has anyone been to Blowing Rock, NC?  They have the cutest downtown with fabulous little shops.
This top from Madewell was perfect for shopping.  I love the loose fit and the high/low hem.  And anything that goes with my favorite white jeans is a winner.  This top would be perfect for the 4th by adding red accessories, like this cross body (this would be amazing!) or this beautiful necklace.









Top: Madewell // Pants: Angry Rabbit, similar here // Tote: old, similar here and here // Wedges: Sam Edelman // Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelet: Alex and Ani // Necklace: Moon and Lola // Sunnies: Nordstrom
