LUNCH WATERSIDE SHOPS; MY CASUAL OOTD
Back To Bricktops for Lunch
My friend *CSG and I had planned to have lunch at Grain de Cafe in north Naples, but when we arrived we discovered it isn’t open on Tuesdays. So, we decided to meet at Bricktop’s again since we were in that part of town. We both really like the restaurant. While she chose their famed Cobb Salad, I decided to order a side of romaine lettuce with an unseasoned hamburger patty, then cut up the meat and tossed my homemade salad dressing into it (see recipe below). I like this combination when out at restaurants, because it’s a safe choice for me. There are only two ingredients, so I don’t have to worry about accidentally consuming something to which I may be allergic or don’t well tolerate.
My Casual OOTD
Although I ended up wearing more eye makeup than I’d meant to for such a casual outfit, I decided to keep it since I didn’t have time to remove and re-do it–and also I wanted to show it to you (but recommend it for a dressier occasion). Typically, my rule of thumb is, the more casual my outfit and venue, the more minimal the eye shadow I wear.
Again I’m wearing my favorite classic, casual uniform–jeans and a button up top. This top is a denim shirt I bought at Banana Republic years ago (see a similar denim shirt here). I have several different washes in denim, from very light to dark. This one is somewhere between, and I like how it looks with these caramel jeans and black, pointy toe flats. It’s such a great combination for fall-winter.
However, if I was up north, I’d wear socks and black duck shoes with a black wool pullover. For links to the exact item or similars, simply scroll down to the end of this post.
I hope December is going well for you.

Scenes From The Video
(ABOVE) For lunch at Bricktops, my friend CSG ordered the Cobb Salad and (BELOW) I ordered a side of romaine lettuce and an unseasoned hamburger patty, which I cut up and tossed with my homemade salad dressing (2 tablespoons organic EVOO, 1 tablespoon organic ACV, and Himalayan salt to taste). FYI: Note my friend’s Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Neverfull PM, with its gorgeous red interior, resting on the bench beside her.
What I Wore
(ABOVE & BELOW) Chanel Miroir Double Facettes (dual-sided compact mirror). This wonderful, slim compact holds a regular and a magnified mirror and fits easily into small handbags. It makes a lovely gift! I also showed it in my blog post below.
(ABOVE) With its black alligator band, the Cartier 18k Gold Tank watch is a timeless piece that goes with almost any outfit.
(ABOVE) I bought this iPhone 11 Pro Clear Protective Case With Card Holder, because it can hold a credit card (here, I’m showing it with my business card). When I’m shopping at Whole Foods and need to scan the Prime Code on my phone, I also have my Prime credit card at the ready. It’s so handy!
(ABOVE) Although it has a key holder inside, this Burgundy Faux Leather Zip Pouch (more colors available) is what I use for credit cards, cash, and coins in small bags. It’s currently on sale and under $10.
