The other day, I was trying to count how many times I’ve been to New York City. This past fashion week was my 10th time in the Big Apple – I couldn’t believe it y’all! Needless to say, I’ve learned quite a lot along the way when it comes to NYC airports, public transportation and maneuvering around the city in general after much duress. So I thought that it would be perfect to share my top 3 NYC travel tips in case anyone was planning fall or winter visits this year! (Already planning a return trip for fall!) I’ve teamed up with Sofft on this post because their Somers slip-on sneaker is hands-down my favorite airport shoe! Plus, this year it totally saved my feet in between fashion week shows and meetings!
This past weekend, we had to move my sister’s bachelorette party from Austin, Texas to Nashville, Tennessee due to Hurricane Harvey at the very last second! We literally canceled and rebooked flights less than 24 hours before we were supposed to leave which also meant wiping the entire itinerary clean. So without a single thing planned, I hopped on IG Stories asking you guys for serious help on what to do in Nashville. We only had two full days there, and your suggestions ended up outweighing the time we had in the city! I wanted to write a full post on where we went while including every single tip that you sent along too! Read the full post for a full list of Nashville bachelorette trip recommendations.
I can’t thank you guys enough for all of the amazing tips and suggestions – I was floored by the response!
Ps. Keep in mind that I don’t have a ton of photos for this post because it wasn’t a “work” trip! And we stayed in an AirBNB, so there are no hotel recs in this post.
There are moments in your life that make you realize that time is a flat circle (True Detective reference). And for me one of those moments of clarity and appreciation of life’s little coincidences was on my recent trip to upstate New York. When I was younger, I would travel with my grandparents to upstate New York during the summer. It was the first place I tried my hand at ceramics as I fired my little pieces in my cousin Sarah’s kiln. And 20 years later, I was back in the same area with one of the most whimsical ceramics brands, MacKenzie-Childs! I’m sharing details on my trip to Camp Courtly Check in today’s full post.
As you might have seen, Jenn from Haute Off the Rack and I went to Houston recently for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. (No Nordstroms in Louisiana y’all!) Outside of all of the shopping we did, we ate a ton of amazing food as we discovered new restaurants. So, I thought it would be fun to put together a little Houston trip recap. I’m sharing where we stayed and each of the delicious meals – as well as where to shop and satisfy your sweet tooth!
Living in Baton Rouge, it’s definitely an advantage to have the beach just a short road trip away. In college, Orange Beach, Alabama was one of our favorite spring break destinations, and I have so many fun memories there! Even now, I still frequent the Alabama beaches with friends during the summer. (I was also just there for Hangout Fest!) After my most recent trip with Hotel Indigo Orange Beach, anIHG hotel, I put together an Orange Beach travel guide filled with spots to eat, drink and hang out all within short distances from the hotel!
