Tomorrow, I head to Virginia on a press trip! I am so excited. You know by now that I love, love, love the South but I haven’t visited Virginia since I was a little girl. We are splitting our time between Richmond and Charlottesville. The local visitor’s bureau is hosting us and when they asked me what I wanted to do, I said… “Wine, oysters, art, and history!” In that order! I am probably most excited about touring Monticello and seeing Pippin Hill Winery on Thursday evening. Both look absolutely gorgeous and so charming.
Here is a little roundup of what I am packing/what I wish I was packing. Of particular note: I picked up this ruffle sleeve sweater at J.Crew and think it’s just so cute. It’s an easier way to wear the bell-sleeve trend. I’m packing a mix of sweaters + dresses as I really want to wear all my sweaters, but I realize it will still be pretty warm down there, so I have to be realistic! Oh, and this weekender bag… it’s the best – looks so much more expensive than it actually is.
On the beauty front, I’m taking my favorite face mask (my skin is a wreck from being sick and constantly blowing my nose), a pretty Fall polish (this is going to be my fall go-to), and the best organic lotion. It smells like pumpkin spice and has 10% glycolic acid so it leaves your skin ultra smooth and flawless.
