I run away to New York City every chance I get. I love the feeling of being in the middle of everything, not to mention surrounded by some of my favorite people. But sometimes it is nice to feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere. North Carolina has plenty of escapes and this weekend we visited Blowing Rock to see nature’s ultimate display. It definitely didn’t disappoint.
And for all you concerned with my safety… I promise I didn’t climb up the mountain in heels, even if that doesn’t seem too farfetched for me 😉
My shopping mantra tends to be, if I don’t want to walk out the door with it on, put it back.After shooting outside Junkman’s Daughter for this post, we browsed around inside. All of their clothes tend to be a little, shall we say, different, but that’s what I liked about this jacket. So I walked out the door with it on (after paying for it of course).
I’d been waiting to break out these faux leather leggings from Forever 21, assuming the temps in Atlanta would be fall-like. Not even close; they were in the 80’s. Let’s just say leather leggings aren’t very breathable :/
But as I was running around Little Five Points sweating my booty off, I met a fellow blogger, Jazzi, and we took some photos for her blog: Change of Seamery. Jazzi specializes in altering clothing and I can’t get over how cute her blog’s name is! Y’all will have to check it out.
Luckily, it’s looking like the warm weather is going to stick around until Halloween. I just need to find some blue knee-high socks to complete my Where’s Waldo costume and I’m ready for the festivities!
I love doing all things Fall: haunted houses, college football games, and, of course, carving pumpkins. Last weekend, Kevin and I went to Scarrigan Farms, a haunted trail and corn maze that scared the crap out of us!
This weekend, we’re heading to my alma mater Auburn University to watch them play Florida Atlantic. I haven’t been on the Plains since April so I’m looking forward to returning to my old home.
So in the spirit of checking things off the list, we went to pick out our perfect pumpkin on Sunday. Now, time to get carving!
