Happy Clothes


Do you have clothes that just make you feel HAPPY when you put them on? This tie dye sweatshirt does that for me!

A Little Spring

 Broke out LOTS of thrifted things for this spring look a few weekends ago.

Neutral Zone

I was on the hunt for some neutral or beige or brownish type sneakers that I could wear when I just wasn't feeling white or black sneakers. There was a popular Madewell pair that was around $100 but I really didn't want to spend THAT much on a sneaker I was only going to wear from time to time. I found these Sketchers for a great price and they are comfy. They work!

Night Out

I wanted to be 1) WARM and 2) able to walk a bit on our night out a couple of weeks ago in the big city (lol).


Weekend Getaway - Downtown Asheville


Sometimes a weekend getaway in your own hometown is just what you need. We took this little staycation to really focus on the little things we like to do together. Go to coffee shops, eat pastries, read books, window shop and just be in the city. It was a rainy weekend so it wasn't very crowded - which was GREAT - and it made it perfect for sipping cappuccinos. 

We stayed one night at The Cambria and got a great view out to the Grove Arcade. It was delightful people watching and would be perfect spot for reading a book.

First stop was Rowan Coffee. I've been wanting to try this place and after all was said and done we loved this little moody spot the most. 

The Times Bar is beautiful, fancy and sexy! It makes for a better spot for a cocktail than a long visit for coffee. We loved it though.

Next stop was The Rhu for breakfast. Their bakery items are probably some of THE best downtown. I wanted one of everything but I went with this DELICIOUS blueberry fruit tart. OH my. 
We stayed a while and just talked about current events and watched the rain fall.

I was ready to get settled into a coffee shop where we could spread out and stay for the long haul. Sessions Cafe is PERFECT for that. Here we can go upstairs at our favorite table and I can unpack my bag. I like to bullet journal, people watch, read my book on one of their comfy couches and cruise instagram.
They have delicious soups and sandwiches too. I had a little cup of their vegan chili and a piece of a sugar cookie that was AMAZING!

We checked into the hotel around 3:00 and got ready for dinner (fish n' chips) and a comedy show at Asheville Beauty Academy. I've been curious about this spot (used to be Tressa's for those of you that are old timers like me) and wanted to check it out. It was exactly what I was hoping it would be and the comedy show was hilarious, as it should be.

Sunday morning we hit up Tupelo Honey for breakfast (I got the eggs benny) and refueled to do some casual shopping. We checked out and headed home! I was ready to go home and get bundled up under some blankets and get WARM!!!

In case you want to come to AVL or have landed here just out of curiosity of our little town, I have a video of the weekend over on my insta! Check it out! 

Let me know if you've got any questions! I love to give recommendations if you are looking to visit.

Another Flare

Well, this is my second pair of flare leggings I've bought...something I never thought I would say in 2022! I love the color of these which is a little hard to see in the photos. They come across a really pretty gold with lots of texture. Think of corduroy pants but with bigger cords. They are on sale right now, which helped me finally pull the trigger on getting them. If I do get tired of them in a few years it won't be such a punch to the gut to donate.

Cute Black Oxfords

I'm so happy with these patent leather oxfords! I've been waiting and watching for a good sale on some oxfords. I have a pair, but they are pitiful! So when I found these I quickly grabbed them up and donated my others. They have a little bit of a flatform to them so they are super comfy.
