Blowing Rock Road Trip with Toyota

Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (“Toyota”) provided me with compensation and use of a Corolla for a short period of time. The opinions I have shared about this vehicle are my own. It’s so hard to believe November is already here, and the fall season is well underway. Ever since I was a child, it’s been a tradition every year to drive up to the mountains of North Carolina and see the beautiful fall foliage. There’s nothing like coasting down the Blue Ridge Parkway (warm apple cider in hand) and pulling over at every overlook to check out the view. This…

Six Must Have Scarves for Fall

If I had to choose, I might dare to say that this season is my favorite in terms of accessories. Though I love a boater hat and silk neck-tie during the summer, it’s the cozier alternatives this time of year that are truly my favorites. From wool hats to boots and scarves, I can never seem to have enough. I mean, how many pairs of black booties does one really need, right? Though, admittedly, my accessories collection tends to get a bit out of control in the fall, I do try to be particular about what gets added to my…

Season Staple: Sweater Dresses

The sweater dress is one style that’s held up through the trends throughout the years. Classic and simple, yet the perfect blend of feminine and cozy, makes it the only item I’m reaching for in my wardrobe this time of year. If you’ve been following my vlogs (you can catch up with them here), then you know I’ve been on the hunt for just the right dresses to fill my wardrobe this fall! From them being too short to too bulky, I’ve tried on and ruled out my fair share, but I’ve also found a few that were definite keepers!…

Best of Blazers

As I mentioned in my post about the top five trends for fall, blazers are back in a big way this season! The wardrobe staple is no longer just for business wear – it’s made a resurgence for casual weekend wear as well! I’ve always found pairing a blazer with a more casual look a bit intimidating in the past, fearing that it would make my look too formal or “stuffy”, but with the influx of menswear-inspired silhouettes available this year, my blazers are no longer such a scary piece to style in my wardrobe. I’m absolutely loving pairing an…

Blowing Rock Getaway Guide: Where to Eat

I can’t remember a time growing up when taking a trip up to Blowing Rock, North Carolina wasn’t a part of our yearly routine. We used to just go in the fall, and it quickly became one of our most frequented vacation spots, even if it was just for a weekend or a day. If you’ve been following for a while, you may know that my family has owned a cabin up there for the last couple of years, so our trips have turned from a semi-annual occurrence to almost monthly! There are so many charming places to grab a…

Kicking It With Koolaburra

As I mentioned last week, a road trip to the cabin is one of my favorite escapes year-round, but especially during the cooler months. Taking the drive to see the changing leaves and cozy up by the fire is textbook fall – the autumn season wouldn’t feel complete with out the trip! The quintessential fall trip calls for a quintessential fall wardrobe, am I right? When I think about snuggling up at the cabin during the fall, my Koolaburra by UGG booties have become something I can’t leave home without! So often when heading up to the cabin, our weekend can consist of so many unexpected…

Weekend in Blowing Rock

If you’ve been following along via Snapchat or Instagram, you may have noticed the spectacular fall foliage I was amongst this past weekend. Ryan and I headed up to the cabin in Blowing Rock, North Carolina for a quick weekend escape. Though we’re only halfway into October, this last quarter of the year seems to fly by at an exponential rate, and we wanted to take the opportunity to sit back, disconnect, and soak in a true fall weekend before our trip to Paris. The fall colors were exactly what we hoped for. Nestled with the greens that were still…

On the Edge

I can’t believe it’s already Monday again! If you were following along on Snapchat, then you may have seen that I escaped to the mountains for a little weekend getaway/cool-down. My parents’ cabin in Blowing Rock, NC is still one of my favorite places to get away. Tucked up in the mountainside, it’s so quiet and peaceful, but it’s only a few minute drive into downtown. It was cool enough to turn the fireplace on in the evenings for a few minutes and cozy up next to it with a cup of hot tea.  The best thing about the mountains is…
