LUNCH AT TERRAZZO, NAPLES, AND MY WARM- OR COLD-WEATHER FALL/WINTER OOTD

The day I met my friends Gail and *CSG for lunch at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, it was in the lower 80s Fahrenheit. We had the same kind of temperatures today, and my navy cotton tee with a  khaki pencil skirt and bare legs works well for that kind of weather.

If your temperatures are much cooler, you can get a similar but more winter-weather appropriate look by switching out the tee for a cashmere v-neck sweater, adding a light colored wool-blend skirt, nude hose/stockings, and a solid color wool coat or puffer. When it’s rainy or snowy, you can toss your pumps into your tote and wear a cute pair of all-weather boots until you get to your destination. I’ve listed options/links for both kinds of outfits at the bottom of the page, if you’re interested.

As for our visit to the resort, I was impressed right from the start with The Ritz-Carlton, Naples staff. The hotel is large, and I couldn’t remember the quickest route to get down to the Terrazza Restaurant, so Gail and I asked for directions at the Concierge desk. Instead of telling us where to go, Natalie Dadowski took us there–and she even let me film her with my iPhone as she led us through the hotel and outside to our destination (see the video at the bottom of this page). What a lovely girl!

For lunch, Gail chose the Corn Bisque, while Ellen and I each had the Leafy Greens Salad with Grilled Shrimp. As usual, I brought my homemade salad dressing (to avoid allergens), and we unanimously agreed we loved our choices.

As for ambience, I would have preferred to dine on the patio–it’s so pretty outside–but the temperature was not only warm but also humid, so we opted for inside in air-conditioning. As much as I enjoyed our lunch, I think the optimum time to visit this particular restaurant is in the evening. There is nothing like dining under the stars, while taking in gorgeous subtropical surroundings and twinkling lights. Plus, if it’s cold out, free-standing heaters are scattered about the patio to chase any possible chills away.

Speaking of chilly, it’s supposed to dip down to the low 60s Fahrenheit during the day this weekend. As much as I love our warm weather, I’m excited for cooler temperatures. It just feels so much more like the holidays.

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe Christmas is less than three weeks away!

Thank you, all of you, for taking the time to view my videos on Youtube and to visit my blog posts here. I so appreciate it!

    Bernadine

    • Thank you, Bernadine! As for Christmas dinner…My husband and I both follow a clean eating regime, so our Christmas dinner will be free of dairy, grain, soy, and sugar. This year, we will have an organic turkey, organic mashed yellow potatoes, organic green beans, and organic butternut squash. We don’t ad any thickener to make our gravy; we like to use the drippings straight from the pan, just as they are, and drizzle it on everything. For dessert, we will have a choice of organic dried figs and organic sprouted walnuts or organic raisins with organic sprouted mixed nuts. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leave your kind comments and question. Happy Christmas to you, too. ~ Janis
