Holiday Getaway Planning

Holiday Getaway

Who’s getting out of town this holiday season? Are you traveling close to home or far away for your getaway? Some of my favorite vacation spots are right here in North Carolina! I’ve put together a few of my favorite holiday spots for you to try this year in North Carolina and all over. Be sure to pick out lots of cute sandals or boots to go with your ensembles. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

Atlantic Beach

Atlantic Beach, NC – Amazing scenic beaches, beautiful shoreline lighthouses, and a little warm weather makes this a perfect sunny getaway spot.


Biltmore Estate, Asheville, NC – Great for wine tastings, estate and garden tours, romantic anniversary’s, or weddings.

Beech Mountain

Beech Mountain, NC – Fantastic for cozy nights in the mountains, with wonderful skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice skating, and hiking.

St. Martin

St. Martin, French Caribbean - Known as the top winter vacation destination, this location is great for outdoor activities, parties on the beach, 85 degree weather, and crystal clear water.

Heel of the Week: Mia Limited Edition “Rhea”

Have you been searching for the perfect bootie to take you from fall to winter? Well then, prepare to fall head over heels for the “Rhea” just like I did! Mia Limited Edition delivers this stunning bootie with a bold zipper and silver detailing that is sure to pop with any outfit. With its chunky 4 1/4 inch heel and sexy peep toe, this is the perfect shoe for those sunny fall days. Pair it with your favorite white skinny jeans and chunky sweater, like I did below, for a cozy fall look!


Staff Style – Ellen

This week’s Staff Style inspiration comes from our Marketing Director, Ellen. She is wearing the Dr Martens 1460 W – Green Smooth. Trendsetters unite in these boots by Dr Martens. This throwback style gets an update with it’s smooth green leather. The classic yellow stitching, cushioned soles and 1 1/2 inch block heel keep this look iconic. Ellen’s always super cool and laid back style is reflected in her office. She has bright colored accents and adorable little cats (she is a huge animal supporter and volunteer) all around to enlighten her surroundings. I love that she created a layered look (great for Fall’s transitional weather) and paired the Dr Martens with a simple black dress, neutral colored jacket and knee socks. Rock out!!
