A Weekend in Charming Charleston Travel Guide

Charleston has been a dream destination of mine for years. The historic homes, rich culture, southern comfort food and picturesque streets beckon me more and more each year it seems. Being a Texas gal, I love exploring places in the south and my sister and I left with full bellies and a camera roll full of beautiful homes. Here’s my Charleston travel guide for a weekend in the charming city. You are sure to leave feeling warm from all the southern hospitality and delicious food! Not to mention the desire to go back! Read more…

Mauve Super Soft Sweater Dress

I swear by sweater dresses in the fall and especially during winter. I think there’s something so feminine about wearing a sweater dress with boots. This mauve sweater dress with balloon sleeves is such a stunner. I love the high neck because you can layer cashmere tanks underneath for extra warmth. Plus, this sweater dress is super soft since it’s mostly acrylic fabric. The shift silhouette makes this dress easy and effortless to style. Just throw it on with booties or boots and you are good to go! I cannot recommend this dress enough, especially as temperatures start to dip. I’m wearing a size US 2 and this dress has a slightly oversized feel to it. I am thinking about maybe hemming it up an inch or two. That way I can wear it with over the knee boots! However, it’s also fine as it.  Read more…

Beach Day :: Darlin’ Cover-up Dress + White Swimsuit

More than a year into my move to Coastal Virginia, I like to think my beach style is where it needs to be. One of the things I’ve learned is to have fuss-free outfits. That’s why I love this darling Draper James cover-up dress. Y’all this dress is next level, especially for the beach or the pool. I love the airy cotton voile fabric along with the delicate lattice inset trim. It’s a looser fit, which is great for taking on and off with a swimsuit underneath. There aren’t any zippers, so I’m very impressed with the ease of getting this dress on and off. However, it also gently skims over the body and has shape. The charming blue color is like a quintessential beach or pool color. Plus, this Draper James cover-up dress is lined, so you can wear any swimsuit underneath without it showing through! 

P.S. this look is featured on Love, Reese, which is Reese Witherspoon’s blog. It’s a place for her to share what she loves most about the South, so I would love it if you check it out! Read more…

Weekend Trip to Asheville, N.C. :: Food + Travel Guide

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!
If you follow me on Snapchat (HKCung) you may have seen my 20 billion snaps from my trip to Asheville, N.C. On Friday, my friend Kim and I decided to take the spontaneous trip and we scrambled to make it happen! Once I was off work after reporting for the 11 p.m. newscast the two of us hit the road with our men! It was a 6.5-hour drive to Asheville from Virginia Beach. Many people have said Asheville is a big hipster town, which I would have to agree. However, there is plenty of charm, history and plenty of fantastic places to eat! Read more…
