Monticello Wine Trail: King Family Vineyards

     Can't believe it's taken me this long to finally review my favorite winery that I've been to so far,  but better late than never! Time to take a virtual trip over to King Family Vineyards. I hope if you're local you've already had the chance to visit this incredible place. If you live outside of Virginia, enjoy this virtual tour!

What to Wear to a Daytime Wedding.

    Most of the weddings that I've attended so far have all been late afternoon or evening weddings. I feel like there is a different type of dress code standard for morning or early afternoon weddings! You still wanted to look dressy and nice as a wedding is a special occasion, but it's not quite the same type of formality as a wedding later in the day. I'm going to my first noontime wedding next month, and I wanted to share an outfit that I put together as inspiration (that I might actually end up wearing for this wedding!).

The Most Gorgeous Gingham Dress.

     This might very well end up being my favorite outfit post of 2019! I purchased this stunning dress way back in March when I organized a girls' weekend trip to Charlotte with all of my Charlottesville friends. Unfortunately by the time I could get these blog photos, the dress had long since sold out, but I love it so much that I still wanted to share it with you! I'm hoping the brand might bring back a similar version for 2020.

Charlottesville 2.0: Why I'm Moving Apartments Again.

     Happy Thursday Friends! Today isn't only the start of a new month, but it's the start of the next chapter of my story here in Charlottesville! I'm jokingly calling it Charlottesville 2.0. 😂 Anyways- my lease on my new apartment begins today! I will be picking up the keys on Saturday! This is my first time ever moving apartments for a reason that isn't moving out of state / new job, and over on Instagram Stories y'all seemed interested to know more of the why and details behind my decision to move locally. So here we go with this fun life update!
