As I mentioned a few weekends ago, we are starting the process to look for a new home! We had our first 2 meetings with realtors and one of the questions that came up was if we liked exposed brick. I think the look on my face said it all. I don’t! I totally get that it’s some people’s style, just not mine right now!

Happy Monday! It’s a very happy Monday over here because I’m coming off a weekend in the sun! Matt and I spent the last few days in Tampa for spring training. Some people (and by that I mean wives) get a spring break, others get a lot of baseball haha. I had forgotten how much I missed the sun though! I’ve barely seen it since moving to Chicago and didn’t think it bothered me much until our first day at the beach. Turns out, my skin decided it didn’t miss it much – I have the worst sunburn!

Botanical Gardens and a Floral Dress

Mesh Floral Dress | Blush Velvet Heels (platform version here and slip ons here) | Prada Bag (similar for less) | Pink Sunglasses (my all time favorites!) | Gold Rings Here and Here | Pink Tassel Earrings | Lipstick in ‘Bawse’

Initially, I thought about building up the suspense for this shoot we did while in Asheville. True to form, I scratched that thought as soon as I sat down to write this week’s post. Waiting for something (aka patience) has never been my strength – Matt got all of that! This floral outfit was my favorite look from our long weekend in North Carolina. Hands down, my favorite thing to wear come spring is dresses and this one gives me all those warmer weather feels!

Asheville Travel Guide

Biltmore Estate in Asheville North Carolina

Since both Matt and I are fully employed, we try to take advantage of every long weekend we have to travel. One of the places that has been on my list for a long time was Asheville, North Carolina. I’d been many years ago for a wedding and have family close-ish by in Greenville but I wanted to visit this small artsy town once more. Most importantly, to see the Biltmore Estate. Most of our trips are inspired by some photo I see – some beautiful place that I can’t get out of my head. While the weather could have been better, it was a great trip overall!
