How to Transition Your Black Outfits from Summer to Fall & Ginger's Blog Linkup

I had a special request this week via Facebook from one of my great followers. She wanted me to give some ideas of how to transition your all black outfits from Summer to Fall. We are having an especially drawn out hot flash at this point, especially here in the South, so I thought that was a great idea for a blog post.

How to Jazz Up Your Basic Black Wardrobe for Fall/Winter & Blog Linkup

I don't know about you guys, but for Fall/Winter I always feel like if I have great black basics in my wardrobe, everything else is on point. Let's face it, you can take a great pair of black pants and a black cashmere turtleneck and layer almost anything over it to achieve a great look.  I can't lie, I buy four or five of the same black cashmere sweaters (I buy crew neck and turtleneck), and they are worn on repeat during the Fall/Winter months. I love light weight cashmere because it will basically adapt to weather. If it's really cold, it keeps you warm, but, on the other hand, you won't burn up if it's just chilly out.

I'm a fan of all black. I love it...maybe it's the way contrasts with my pale skin or the way it sets off my red hair...I don't know...I just know I LOVE IT! ๐Ÿ˜ However, at times, all black needs a little jazzing up. So, I like to add a contrasting jacket or boots with special detail, like these black boots with silver detail. To set a contrasting tone, I also like to wear tannish brown or burgundy boots with black.

The Farmhouse at Persimmon Creek

Okay guys, I promised you a blog post about our fabulous dining experience at The Farmhouse at Persimmon Creek...well, here it is! This particular restaurant offers the much sought-after farm-to-table concept. It is located in the heart of the North Georgia Mountains, in close proximity to popular Lake Burton, just outside of the town of Clayton, Georgia. The address is 3093 Ridge Gap Road, Clayton, Georgia 30525. If you are even  slightly a foodie...then you owe it to yourself to give the Farmhouse a try. The only rub is that it's only open Thursday-Saturday for dinner and the first Sunday of the month for brunch May-October, reservations required (Website here).  We have been attempting to make it out to this fabulous little gem for multiple trips to the mountains now, with something alway hindering us, but, we finally did. It's located about 45 minutes from our Georgia home, and the drive was lovely.
