(ABOVE) Love the wind lanyard on this sun hat. As soon as I’m indoors, I take the hat off and hang it around my neck, so I don’t lose it. So convenient.

Saturday, July 9, 2016 / Vlog Post Notes
Jane’s Garden Cafe in Old Naples is one of my favorite outdoor cafes. She offers a wonderful organic spring greens salad that I always order with chicken, and diners have a choice of sittng indoors (in air-conditioning), or on one of two patios. The north patio is under cover, and the south patio is shaded by pretty tables with umbrellas around a pond filled with brightly colored koi and lily pads. This patio is my favorite spot; I love the sound of the bubbling water and chirping birds. Even with the heat, my friend Gail and I decided to dine there.
Before lunch, I decided to stop by Tommy Bahama, which is across the street, and have a look around. I haven’t been there in quite some time. Since it was going to be a scorching 90 degrees Fahrenheit and I planned to do some walking, I wore a cool, comfy cotton t-shirt dress from J. McLaughlin and flat leather sandals from Jack Rogers. Plus, of course, I wore my wide-brim hat!
Hope you like the video; Gail and I enjoyed our afternoon, even though it was very hot!

Scenes From The Video
(ABOVE) Tommy Bahama, on Third Street South. Don’t you love all the lush plantings?
(ABOVE) Tommy Bahama Paradise Poppies Dress. I loved, loved, loved the comfortable yet slim fit of this dress and the wrinkle-resistant/travel material; but the print was just a bit too large and bold for me.
(ABOVE) I believe it’s a typographical error, but according to Tommy Bahama on line, the name of this dress is Gardenia Blooms Silk Tie Dress. The flowers I see are hibiscus blooms. Maybe by the time this publishes, the error will have been fixed–or, I am just not able to see the gardenias in this or the photograph on line. Either way, it’s a very pretty, feminine, and flowy dress!
(ABOVE) The southern, fountain patio at Jane’s Garden Cafe. So charming, and they serve breakfast all day long. How great is that?
(ABOVE) I met my friend Gail in 1989. Can’t believe it’s 27 years ago!

What I Wore
(ABOVE & BELOW) I get so many comments and compliments on these Jack Rogers sandals, monogramed with my initials. I’ve had them for about 10 years and love them.
(ABOVE) The Kate Spade prescription eyeglasses and wide-rim hat with wind lanyard I’m wearing in this video. (I ordered two pairs of the glasses; had one pair made into regular eyeglasses and the other into the sunglasses.) (BELOW) Get a look similar to the one I’m wearing. On a smart phone?
