14 Jul Turning Heads Linkup – A Pine Green Gingham Dress
Well, its Turning Heads Tuesday and also our 19th Wedding Anniversary! Despite the fact we can’t travel, we will celebrate by ordering from one of my favorite restaurants, one of our favorite, called The Fig Tree. I shared my 50th Birthday celebration there, 2 years ago on the blog.
Today is all about keeping cool in this linen green gingham sundress from Mango.
Outfit and Happenings
We planned on going to Europe for our 20th next year, but as you know its all up in the air. In the meantime, I’ll try and make the best of the day at home. There is also a heatwave here in the South and the real feel has been near 100 on certain days. Ah, anything over 90 is hot, right?
I Have been able to get my hair done twice so far, after quarentine, and use Kerestase products for conditioning and also for blow drying. But it is a challenge in the summer to avoid the sweat and fallen frizzy hair you get when it is this hot. See my little pain patch below? I have one more step to get off of it! It’s been a long journey!
Now, back to the dress.
When you live in the South, it is mandatory to have linen clothes. Really! You may have seen this dress, which has a vintage vibe and a colorful plaid. This dress has a vintage vibe as well, and I loved that it wasn’t traditional black and white, but pine green. The buttons down the front and midi style are a great detail as well.
I wore the dress I had on yesterday to a new vineyard, and yes we practically go each Saturday and don’t get tired of it. The scenery was beautiful , again near the Blue Ridge mountains and they have some of the best wine at this NC Vineyard. No Scuppernog or Muscadine thank you! I love dry wines! I prefer reds but in the summer, I am all about either chilled wine, or some refreshing whites. We had a new grape to try this weekend, The Mansing Grape. Touted as a “Red lovers white wine” it was very refreshing, crisp and with pear and fruity tones. A new favorite. My sister and niece joined us as we social distanced and brought the pups as well. I am a happy camper when I am around great company enjoying wines, and could sit looking at the view all day. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and they were wearing masks as well as selling the wines outdoor.
I bought this dress last year and this is its first debut! I have had a real desire to shop a bit, but isnt it funny when you are ready to shop, you don’t find much!
