Lace Tunic in San Luis Obispo

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the fun gingham balloon sleeve blouse that I was sent from StyleWe* to review. The other item I chose to review is a lace tunic.* As always, all opinions in this review are my own.

When I saw the lace tunic online, I was immediately drawn to it. And I was very pleased once I received it because of the unique design and very good quality. I decided to wear the tunic with white skinny jeans, my silver lace-up flats, and a big pearl necklace. If you are not as tall as I am (I'm almost 5'11''), I think the tunic would also look great on its own with some heels for an evening out.


I wore the outfit when we visited Wolff Vineyards in San Luis Obispo. It's a beautiful spot to take photos, and, honestly, when we searched for a new winery to visit in the area, we chose one where the reviews mentioned the beautiful surroundings. Fortunately, the wine was really good, too.



If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I love tunics. In fact, tunics and leggings are one of my signature looks.

There are lots of tunics on the market, but many are very similar. In fact, I own quite a few tunics that look very much alike. What I love about StyleWe is that their designs are truly distinct. In fact, I could easily choose a whole new, unique wardrobe from the site...


Wolff Vineyards was a great spot to enjoy some good wine and spend a leisurely afternoon, and we'll certainly be returning on future visits to the Central Coast. Next time, we'll probably bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the outdoor patio.


One more look at the gorgeous lace details of the tunic, taken at our hotel. Four different people told me that day how much they liked the tunic and how unique it is.


After our visit to the winery, we headed to downtown San Luis Obispo where Andy got some tasters of sour beers - which he loves - at Libertine Brewing Company. He REALLY enjoyed the sour beers. We also got some lunch at Libertine and were not disappointed by their food offerings.


We shared the fried goat cheese balls. The soft goat cheese is a nice contrast to the crunchy crust and goes very well with the orange marmalade and honey it is served with.


We also ordered the salmon board. The salmon was honestly one of the best smoked salmon I've ever eaten. It is served with a delicious herbed cream cheese.



Finally, we shared the Caprese salad - always a nice summer treat.




Questions: Have you checked out StyleWe yet? Unfortunately, the lace tunic appears to be sold out, but they are always adding new and unique items What's your signature look? Do you like tunics? Do you like lace? 


Be well,
Andrea

    1. Thanks, Elaine! Goat cheese tastes somewhat tangy and can be a bit of an acquired taste... It's often paired with something sweet, in this case honey and marmalade, to balance it out.

  9. Does the 'kid' eat these delicious (and slightly exotic) dishes with you? My kids and grandkids would be asking where the chicken nuggets were!!

    You look divine. That lace tunic is so Audrey or Princess Caroline. I love it on you. And your vineyard setting is stunning. These are some of my all time favorite photos of you and your great sense of style. Truly lovely, Andrea.

    1. Yes, the kid actually ate all the food; in fact, he ate almost all of the mozzarella and tomatoes and the salad... He also liked the goat cheese, which surprised me a bit... But he wasn't always adventurous... My husband started making him take two bites of all new foods he encountered (as well as foods we were eating that meal) when he was about 3 and got really picky (at that time he wanted to eat the same few food items over and over and stopped eating a lot of foods he had been eating). I was actually skeptical as I didn't want to make food a big deal. Our older son had always just eaten what we ate (even though when he was little, I offered him more "standard" food), and I didn't think getting into "food fights" was a good idea. However, now I'm actually really thankful and my husband's persistence paid off as the kid eats a wide variety of foods. But don't get me wrong, he still loves burgers!!!

      Thanks so much for your kind words about the tunic! I really love that it's different.

  13. So pretty! We are headed to SLO in a about a month and can't wait to go! Might have to check out that place, although we'll have 4 kids with us and 4 adults...hmmm...any recommended places?

    1. Thanks, Sarah!

      Have a great time in SLO! I think Libertine is actually a great place for kids. It's casual with lots of space for little ones to roam around. They have the usual kid's menu, crayons, etc. And they have the most delicious house-brewed kombucha with 0.5% alcohol (it changes every few weeks, and the one I tasted was perfect; our sever said that it was his favorite one of the ones they brew). It's the perfect summer beverage in my opinion.

      We stay in a place with a kitchen when we are in the area, so we don't go out very much, so, unfortunately, I don't have any other recommendations for places that are great for little ones...

      We really like the beach in Pismo. We also love visiting Morro Bay and the beach there.

      If you can sneak away without the kids, Sycamore Mineral Springs is a fun place to visit for a few hours and so very relaxing...

    Those goat's cheese balls with orange marmalade made my mouth water! I need to make some of those for myself with a salad.
