Explore Travel Diaries, Outfits and Tips

Rainbow Row

One of my favorite sights while I was in Charleston was the pretty homes both on Rainbow Row and along the Battery. Walking by the bright homes added a cheerful vibe to the otherwise dreary day, and I couldn't get over seeing flowers in December the entire time I was in the city!

Rainy Day in Charleston

Rainy days typically put a damper on any outdoor plans, but my family and I didn't let it stop us from enjoying our first day in Charleston the weekend before Christmas. I braided my hair, slipped on my Bean boots and headed out the door eager to explore all day.

2-Week West Coast Road Trip

It's a good thing I love car rides because my family's road trips are no joke. We have no qualms about spending 15 or more hours in the car and then jam packing a week's worth of activities in a city into one day. While I sometimes feel like I need a vacation from my vacation at the end of a trip, I can't imagine a better way to see the country or spend time with my family. 

Aspen Alley

The dreary day reminded me of the day I spent in Aspen, Colorado this summer! It was overcast and rainy the whole day I was there, but that didn't stop my family and I from exploring the area.

Los Angeles Travel Diary

Today I want to share with y'all the longest stop on my family and I's West Coast roadtrip, Los Angeles. We spent two full days here, one exploring the city and the other enjoying Venice Beach. While I'm sure we only made a dent in everything there is to do and see in the city, we made the most of our 48 hours! My brother is now set on living here when he grows up, and while I had so much fun experiencing LA, I think I'll stick to living vicariously through my favorite TV shows!

Venice Beach

Don't mind me, I'm just looking back on my summer beach days while everyone else is in full on "fall mode". While I love fall fashion, it's no secret that summer is my favorite time of the year. For me summer brings time to read, family adventures and, best of all, beach days! This July I spent a couple days at Venice Beach, and it was a great change of pace (and temperature!!) compared to the week prior spent in Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. 

San Francisco Travel Diary

While I don't understand the allure of most big cities, after a day and a half in San Francisco and one of the most intense leg workouts ever (the hills are killer y'all...), I didn't want to leave. I don't know how else to describe the city besides excitingly vibrant; I felt like there was color and happiness around every corner! Hopefully I can give y'all a better idea as to why I loved this city so much as I go through everything I did! 

Glass Beach

As my family continued our drive down the California coast, San Francisco bound next, we stopped at Fort Bragg Glass Beach to get a closer look at the Pacific and see for ourselves the unique sea glass along the shore. And while a five hour drive feels like nothing to my family, the ocean breeze was a refreshing and much need break from the car. 

Redwood Forest

After spending a couple days in the Pacific Northwest, my family and I started our drive down California, and our first stop was Redwood National Park. On our drive there my siblings often asked what was so special about it, but their questions quickly ceased once they saw the unbelievably massive trees that made up this wooded area.  

Seattle Travel Diary

Hey y'all! In my last post I shared the most adorable dress that I wore for my day in Seattle, but today I want to share all the details about everything I did in the city. This was my first time in Seattle, and to be honest my only preconceptions about the city came from what I saw on Grey's Anatomy... but I'm happy to report that it was much better than I expected, so much so that Seattle may be tied with San Francisco for my favorite city that I visited last month! 

4 Hours in Yellowstone

I love road trips. 15 hours in a car? Sounds like a dream come true to me! But one of the main reasons I love road trips so much because they allow for spontaneity, and that's exactly how this quick stop in Yellowstone came about. 

Weekend in Vail

Last week I was on spring break, and unfortunately my siblings' and I's breaks didn't align this year. Although, we didn't let that stop us from escaping Kansas for a few days. We decided to hit the road and spend a quick yet exhilarating weekend in Vail, Colorado. 

Travel Diary: Savannah, GA 

For the 4th of July, my family and I ventured off to Savannah, GA, one of my mom and I's dream cities. From what I had heard beforehand, it was the quintessential Southern city, and I was not disappointed. If anything, I fell more in love with it than I ever thought possible. 

A Quick Getaway

My family typically takes pretty big summer vacations, but this past year we went New York for Thanksgiving and New Orleans for Mardi Gras and with me starting college this month we decided to keep our summer vacation a little more low-key. So my mom took us to Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach, Missouri for a few days!
