September sees the rise of wedding season in the South (the summer is just too hot and we’ll be having dry, hot weather through October). As someone from the North, fall weddings have always evoked a sense of coziness and cool temperatures - yielding dress choices that involve velvet, black lace, and jewel tones to compliment the overcast skies and changing leaves. But down South, since the temperatures can still reach 90 degrees, these options just doesn’t seem appropriate (or comfortable)!
Nantucket is one of my favorite places on Earth. I started going almost ten years ago when I tagged along with my best friend's family who goes every year. The 8-mile wide island is full of adorable shingled cottages, hydrangeas, and gorgeous sandy beaches. I am so excited to share my guide to Nantucket today, and I hope you get a chance to visit soon!
I just got back from my Fourth of July weekend trip to New York and am excited to share my travel guide for summer in the city and out east on Long Island/The Hamptons. Those that know me know I grew up in New York, so I am lucky for the opportunity to travel back there for what I think is the best season of the year.
If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen my post from this morning highlighting the new Brenne Whisky. What I love about this whiskey is that it combines the bite of the South's favorite drink with the elegance of French distilling (this single malt scotch is made in Cognac, France). I was really excited to share this on my feed as someone with French heritage living in Tennessee (arguably, the whiskey capital of the world).
