If you follow me at all on instagram you are probably quite aware that I love food. Almost as much as I love design and style actually, can’t live without it, right? Truth be told, when I was a wee abbyabbyabby I was the pickiest eater. I pretty much lived on chicken nuggets and ketchup (I still have a soft spot of ketchup actually). As I grew-up and changed thankfully so did my tastebuds. Now I’m at a point where I’ll pretty much eat anything. This can get me into trouble if I don’t watch it a little One of my favorite things to do during the weekend is go out to new restaurants with friends and family. Food experiences cement bonds and create great memories.
Cut to this past weekend, my mom invited me to go out to dinner with her and some friends we traveled to France with. The destination was Salt of the Earth in Fennville, Michigan. It was about a 45 minute drive for me from Kalamazoo, which seems like a long commute for dinner but it was very worth it. Their farm-to-table concept which celebrates all of the agriculture that Michigan has to offer has a relaxed at home atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable and ready to eat. And, boy, did we eat! I am looking forward to taking my husband in the near future.
Of course, I wanted to dress up for the occasion something easy and dressy was on my mind. I wore my beautiful new sarong style maxi skirt with a gorgeous slit up the side with this knit white vest that I secured with saftey pins to wear as a tank. And because I was going to see some of my travel pals I wore my lovely brooch that I picked up at the flea market in Paris.
Here’s a sample of some of the beautiful food I ate. They have killer sea scallops which are my new favorite food and one heck of a mean whiskey sour!
