travel blog | asheville, north carolina.

Two weeks ago, I made a quick  jaunt to the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina for m’girl Maggie’s wedding. Needless to say, a good time was had by ALL. Let me break it down for you:

Friday-

I linked up with my BFF, Annie, and her husband, Alex, for dinner at The Nightbell. We basically tried one of everything and it was phenomenal.

not your typical deviled egg… corn sabayon, sunburst smoked trout gravlax, pimenton.
a meal out is not complete without steak. in our opinion.
i know. we’re all obsessed with annie’s bodysuit. unfortunately, for all of us, it isn’t online. HOWEVER, here is my jumpsuit and jacket.

Saturday-

Annie and I took in the sights of Asheville including the biggest general store we’ve ever encountered, Mast. A few sights along the way:

coffee on a bus. casual.
many fall sights.
while wearing this sweater we’re all obsessed with.

THEN THERE WAS THE MAIN EVENT #TALFOUNDTHEDUNN

THE BRIDE (similar wedding guest dresses here and here and here)
MY GIRLS
THERE WERE DONUTS.
AND CHAMPAGNE.

It’s like you were there right?

my fall capsule, part 1.

Gah I LOVVVEEE this time of year – the last few weeks have been gloriously cool, and it really feels like the holidays are about to begin! Here’s a look at some of my favorite outfits from last week. I tend to do “capsule dressing”, buying a few new pieces every season that work with 1) what I already have and 2) also work with each other. It makes getting dressed in the morning so much easier! Today I’m sharing a few of my new pieces, and I’ll share a few more next week. As you can see, I gravitate towards classic shapes and bright, clear colors. Click each photo to shop the look, or (if you’re looking at this on our website), click each piece in the product widget below the photo.

Gucci Belt Look
preppy style is LIFE – love this combo!

This look is pretty typical of my style – I love a great blazer paired with jeans. This belt was a definite splurge but I have worn it almost every day this fall. Every girl needs a navy blazer in her closet, and this one from J Crew Factory fits perfectly. My striped tee is another favorite J Crew purchase – there are a few sizes left. If those don’t work for you, this one is almost identical and also comes in a red stripe – cute!

Ruffle Button Down
polka dots AND ruffles? yes, please.

I’m always looking for a great button-down – but they are HARD to find! So many of them are bulky and bother me under sweaters…so I was super excited when I found this polka-dot one from J Crew Factory. It’s got a lot of stretch but it’s not clingy. It works great alone or under a sweater. I love it so much that I got it in two colors (see below). My favorite distressed skinnies are sold out everywhere, but I found some other options for you from 7 For All Mankind, Free People and New York & Co. And that’s my favorite bag in the background – you can read more about why I love it here.

Red Ruffle Button Down
love this pop of red

Okay, here’s the same ruffle button-down in red. So cute! I’ve added my favorite Frye boots – I love how they look more and more beat-up every year.

Hope the rest of your week is wonderful! xo

black + white 🖤

Over the past few years, a black, leather moto jacket has always been on my shopping list and I never pulled the trigger… until now!

This Blank NYC beauty is perfection (and under $100…) The gold hardware is probably what sold me. Why is that so hard to find? I digress.

The jacket goes with everything. Dress it up with a skirt and heels or down with distressed denim and sneaks. Scoop your very own before it sells out and scroll to the bottom to shop the whole look!
