Oh, My Sweet Carolina









Outfit Details: 
Cynthia Vincent heels (old)
collared eyelet tee - J.Crew
vintage jumper dress (don't worry, I was wearing shorts with this)
hat - Marshalls
new tattoo by Legion Avegno at Fallen Sparrow (if you follow me on instagram, you probably already saw this!) 


I've never spent more than a day in North Carolina prior to this trip, but I sure do think it's beautiful. We made a three day pit stop in Mount Airy, where some of Bobby's family lives, and it was the perfect way to end our long two weeks. His aunt and uncle live on a large, gorgeous property, of which we and the dogs took full advantage: Miku and Bear (family dog) were in their element, chasing each other (and us) all over the place and bathing in the sunlight. There's nothing like fresh air and open space to help you wind down before another long drive; it did us all a great deal of good. Thank you, North Carolina, for being so lovely - and an especially big thank you to Bobby's family for their hospitality. We'll be back, soon!

  6. I'm so glad you enjoyed North Carolina! I've lived here all my life (minus about a year here and there) and think it's one of the most perfect spots in the world. That's a gorgeous tattoo - a lovely tribute.

  18. This is too adorable to not note.

    My mother was born and raised in North Carolina, and my dad was born and raised in Florida. The exact opposite for both you and Bobby!

  21. what a lovely spring outfit.

    also- if that tattoo is new, im guessing it might have something to do with your recent trip home? wishing you comfort if it means what i think it means.

  29. NC is such a beautiful state, especially that part! I grew up in VA, but literally a stone's throw from NC and it seems we were always going south...never north! So i feel much more at home and connected with North Carolina than I do Virginia. Glad you enjoyed your time there! :)
