LUNCH AT THE 239 NAPLES; TUNIC SWEATER OUTFIT
Organic Eats at a Cute (But Loud) Outdoor Eatery in North Naples
I must confess I had not heard about The 239 Naples at Mercato in North Naples. Although I regularly shop at Whole Foods market at Mercato, it had been quite some time since I had dined at any of the center’s restaurants. So I decided to have a look at the Mercato website and see if anything caught my attention. I noticed the photograph of The 239 Naples first, because it featured a healthy looking salad, and as soon as I saw organic chicken breast on the menu, I knew I wanted to try it. I seldom see organic items offered at restaurants.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and my salad with organic chicken was as lovely as it was nutritious (with my home-made organic dressing of 2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar, and pink Himalayan salt to taste). CSG ordered the Local Florida Orange and Arugula Salad and Tomato Soup, both of which looked wonderful, too.
Also, I liked that the restaurant offered abundant seating outside. I think that makes a dining spot so much more fun. However, I have to say that the music was so loud, both inside and out, that it was difficult to hear CSG or the staff. I can’t remember a lunch spot ever being so loud in fact, anywhere. Our server said she would gladly turn it down for us, but we never noticed a difference. Maybe it was just a temporary glitch with the sound system, but I’m beginning to feel my 62-year-old age. 🙂
My Tunic Sweater Outfit
The day of our lunch the temperature dipped down into the 60s Fahrenheit, so I wore white skinny jeans with a cozy, cotton-blend tunic sweater I’ve had for about 15 years (similar here), and a white supima cotton tunic-length tee-shirt (similar here). I love long sweaters over skinny jeans. The look is flattering, because it elongates all figures. I arrived at the restaurant early, so I chose a table outside. However, even though it was only 69 degrees Fahrenheit–and numerous people were wearing sundresses and short-sleeve shirts, CSG and I agreed it was just a little too chilly for us to stay, so we moved inside. You can tell we are now Florida girls!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I hope you are having a lovely week so far.

(ABOVE) I ordered The 239 Naples Farm Salad with Organic Grilled Chicken (unseasoned) and brought my own salad dressing. (Recipe: 2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar, pink Himalayan salt to taste. I carry my dressing in these leak-proof, four-ounce glass salad dressing bottles.)
What I Wore
What I Carried In My Handbag
(ABOVE & BELOW) I carried my Four-Ounce Glass Bottle of salad dressing in this Louis Vuitton Toiletry 15 Pouch. Unfortunately, the company has discontinued this particular toiletry pouch, but it is available preloved at Fashionphile, a partner of Neiman Marcus.
(ABOVE & BELOW) I use these Faux Leather Zip Key Pouches for storing either lip products, keys or credit cards, bills, and coins. They are under $20 and come in a variety of colors and prints. Why I use a key pouch for keys: to keep my keys from scratching and marking up the interior of my handbags and the exterior of my other delicate small leather goods inside my handbags.
(ABOVE & BELOW) I have this Small Leather Tassel Zipper Pouch in black and in blush and I use both of them so much! You can choose to have them monogrammed, or not. They come in sizes small or large and in a variety of colors.
(ABOVE & BELOW) This Chanel Compact Mirror is an essential in my handbags. It has a regular mirror on one side and a magnified mirror on the other, and it is very slim. Although I didn’t mention it in the video, the perfume I’m wearing is Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum. I have it in the Intense Mini Twist Spray (3 x .2 fl. oz.). It’s also available in 3 x .7 fl. oz.
(ABOVE & BELOW) I take this Portable iPhone Charger with me when I vlog so I am never without extra power, should I need it. I love this! It plugs into the bottom of my phone, and I can use my phone while it charges. I also bought a cute Pink Portable iPhone Charger Zip Case for storing it. Both the charger and the case are available in several different colors. Also shown: Warby Parker Sunglasses, Butterscotch Tortoise.
(ABOVE & BELOW) I’m wearing this RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek Lip and Cheek Color, Beloved (also at Amazon), on my lips, cheeks, and forehead. I applied it to my lips with this Gold Retractable, Dual-Ended Lip Brush. I keep one at my makeup table at home and another in my handbag cosmetic case.
