The Streets You Shouldn't Miss While Visiting Charleston

I love being able to check new places off my bucket list and that's exactly what I did back in April when Greg and I met up with his parents to visit the oh so charming Southern city of Charleston, South Carolina. Horse-drawn carriages leisurely make their way down picture-perfect cobblestone streets, where colorful antebellum homes and Spanish moss adorned oaks are the rule rather than the exception. Though relatively small in size, Charleston offers…

Blush For The Holidays

The holiday season is officially upon us with the first weekend of December already come and gone! How did the year fly by so fast?! Like you, my calendar is quickly filling up with holiday parties and events, which begs the infamous question, "What will I wear?". While I love getting dressed up, not all seasonal soirees require glitz and glam, so for the occasions where less is more, I'm reaching for this season's need-now tone... blush. To me, there are few looks more timeless than…

Why Lake Como Should Be On Your Italy Itinerary

Rome. Florence. Venice. These cities are on every tourist's must-see list while in Italy. But wander past these famed locales and you'll find pleasure in the country's less-frequented spots, some of the best being in the unsung north where rugged peaks, grand villas and glittering lakes take center stage. In the foothills of the Alps on the border of Switzerland lies Lake Como, a picture-perfect paradise known as a home-away-from-home for the rich and famous. But don't let that steer you away…

Luckily, there are usually also a few wonderful surprises that we could have never expected to stumble on. One of the best surprises during our stay in the Amalfi Coast was when we decided to venture past Positano and visit its neighboring towns to the south. What started as a taxi ride to..

The Chic Traveler's Guide to Positano

I've been looking forward to writing this post since the moment I said goodbye to the Amalfi Coast a few weeks ago. Its allure is irresistible— spectacular beaches, gorgeous weather, towering cliffs, charming villages, lush gardens - the list can go on and on. While this entire region of Southern Italy is amazing, the picture-perfect town of Positano may be the crown jewel. A staircase of colorful homes tumbling down to the sea, this once sleepy village has become a haven of chic hotels, fine dining and…

Hotel Spotlight: Il San Pietro

There are few things more timeless than vacationing on the shores of the Mediterranean. The thought of it immediately conjures up images of Jackie Kennedy and Grace Kelly looking fabulous while boating along the region's iconic coastline. This is the experience I've dreamed of for years, so when our travels took us to Italy's Amalfi Coast last month, I knew we had to make the most of our time! For me, the foundation of any great trip means choosing the perfect hotel, and we couldn't have been more pleased with..

Hotel Spotlight: The Greenbrier

If you're like me, West Virginia doesn't initially come to mind when thinking of must-visit travel destinations. However, thanks to one gorgeous resort nestled in the mountains of this southern state, it should be! Here's why... At the end of August, my mom and I took a quick girls' trip to The Greenbrier…

Layering Up for Fall Days

It doesn’t feel like fall just yet here in Nashville, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have all the cravings the coming season brings on - big cuddly scarves, baking at home, lots of plaid, extra candles and cinnamon topped on everything. Last month we spent time in beautiful New Hampshire and while the days were filled with sunshine and warm temperatures, the evenings brought a welcomed crisp to the air, giving a taste of what's to come. I love layering for fall and one of my go-to pieces is…
