Decked Out

Dining out

It’s been forty days since the official end of summer, and by now most of us are experiencing waves of wanderlust. 

If a cruise to some exotic port isn’t in the books, you can still channel those sea-faring vibes right here in Wilmington. With so many cuisines to sample, you and your discerning palate can take a quick jaunt to Greece, Thailand, or Cuba, all while barely leaving your zip code. 

Dressing for the deck of a luxury yacht doesn’t have to be much different than a night on the town locally. Layers are always key, so you can throw on a sweater or shrug when out in the open air and peel it off once you’re settled in a cozy taverna. Even your favorite pair of jeans can conjure up a night on the Aegean – pair with an airy white blouse for a simple yet elegant look and top it off with a small clutch and some classic costume jewelry. 

Now raise that glass of ouzo and toast to your very own bay-cation.
