Whew, where did October go? Oh that’s right, on mini-adventures. Emphasis on “mini.” Yep, travel is the word of the month… year… ok, my 20s, but with a few exceptions, I’m not traveling too far.
In fact, I’ve had several sweet weekends in the past month over exploring my old stomping grounds in Winston Salem, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Here are a few highlights…
Camino Bakery with my sweet friend Kimi who I sang with in college! (Did I mention I was in an a capella group in college? haha) This picture is from one of our tour concerts during senior year, many moons ago :)
Got to sneak a peak at the WFU women’s basketball practice!
We checked out Hoots Roller Bar – it’s only been open a few days and is certainly off to an interesting start. This is phase one of a revitalization of the West End Mill Works area and I’m excited to go back. Apparently, next to move in are a restaurant, distillery, yoga studio, art gallery and music venue all in the refurbished old mill.
Pumpkin carving and a ridiculously delicious dinner at Elizabeth and Ben’s house. What a treat! However, I can’t claim any pumpkin carving skills so instead I took a picture of theirs… I can vicariously take credit as moral/creative support, right?
So, Winston is a totally underrated town, I’ve decided. And if you ever want to explore it just let me know. I’m down.
What is your favorite underrated city to visit?
I’m not sure when the trigger happened (maybe my trip to Black Mountain?) cause it sure wasn’t the weather, but for the past month and a half, I have been in full-on-fall-color-palette mode! Specifically green. I love it.
Cute Amy mentioned this on her blog as well, so perhaps the media is subliminally messaging us that green is in, but I welcome it with arms open. My olive and hunter green skinnies have been on heavy rotation this autumn already.
Outfit of the Week: Olive Green and Florals
Here is the whole ensemble together, but my apologies for the low quality photo – best I could do with an iphone and bad lighting :)
Newest addition to the closet that I am super pumped about? These camel colored, chunky heeled booties. So comfortable and insanely versatile, and best of all, these ones were a total steal!
Considering getting them in gray, too. What do you think?
