Greetings from Charlotte, NC.
What meant to be a five-day visit ended up a prolonged stay due to a mishap with my car but I can honestly say, I'm so happy I had to stay.
I love being able to explore a new city. I've had great food, been in great company (love you babe) and even spent a few days in Florida. These are the perks of being a freelancer.
One challenge I've been able to conquer is living out of the same suitcase for this long. I will say, it was frustrating at first. But I've realized now more than ever, my capsule wardrobe is intact. With a few fun pieces like my felt hat and overpacking my shoe options, I've battled the challenge successfully!
This look has become a bit of a uniform for me. Plus there's nothing like a hat to disguise a bad hair day.
This look really is a compliation of all of my favorite things- black jeans, my Sam Edleman sandals which might've been my best Nordstrom Rack find, a black bralette, crispness from a white top and my floppy hat.
I'm happy to say the boyfriend is finally on board with the hat! He was wary at first ;).
SHOP MY LOOK
Later on this evening, we wanted to walk off all the southern food we'd devoured at Tupelo Honey Cafe and took a ride to Romare Bearden Park. This park is in the middle of the city and allows for such cool pictures. Dave, his camera and I had a little bit of fun.
I will definitely miss it here when I get home. I swear I was a Southern belle in another life.
