Everything I Wore in Highlands, NC.

Everything I Wore in Highlands NC
coat, leggings, boots!

One of my favorite things about moving to the South is the weather. As a general rule, I hate being cold!!!! But a funny thing has happened: I kind of (kind of being the key word) miss colder weather, especially bundling up in big warm cozy clothes. My teddy coat, my snow boots, ETC! (Both of these things are on sale, btw). A cold weather getaway was the perfect reason to bundle up in all my coziest, comfiest pieces.

sweater, necklace, pants

I totally realize that the Missoni pants might have seemed like an odd choice but they were one of the best things I packed. They’re knit like a sweater and incredibly warm. Paired with the knee high boots they made for the perfect cold night outfit.

This Gucci barrette is ridiculous but amazing. Favorite way to update a boring outfit.

    Highlands look amazing. Love that Gucci barrette. So cute. Maybe you could show us some cute dupes for that as I can’t quite justify the price. Thanks much. Laura

    I love the brown paisley dress with boots–such a mountain chic dinner outfit. It would also be perfect in fall when the leaves up there are changing. Glad you had such a great time at one of my favorite places. We love Cashiers and Highlands–winter, spring, summer and fall!

    Love your outfits here! Your “what I wore last week” posts are always some of my favs – would love if you brought those back more regularly!

    • Oh wow, you are actually the second person to say this – I stopped doing them during the pandemic but maybe I will bring that back now that I am actually doing things and wearing real clothes again!

        I love this post and that you included the pajamas! Forever in pajamas as quickly as is acceptable.
        Ps. the Gucci barrette is so perfect for you—you wear it so well! I LOVED seeing a little roundup of what you put together to wear!

    Hi! Love the laptop case but not seeing the large/center embossing option on the website. Am I missing it? Thank you!

    Oh, and I should note that I’m such a picky jewelry wearer—I find myself only falling for the pieces that are exorbitantly priced and wishlist items, but this necklace you posted is PERFECT! I saved it immediately when you shared in a story last week! Thanks for including it here—such a great item to elevate any outfit!

    • Oh YAY – Brinker & Eliza is a great brand for that. Not outrageous but not inexpensive. That necklace is a forever fav and it is in great shape after several years!

    You had a very Amber Valletta look in that profile shot with the barrette!
