carolina in my mind.

today. if only for the moment. in my mind i'm gone to carolina.
and anticipating this fall when my lovie & i will really be in carolina
my heart fills with an abundance of joy.

you see.
having gone to school in north carolina.
and my lovie's family being from north carolina.
a piece of our hearts will always be in that charming state.

whether at the outer banks. wandering the islands beside the wild horses.
 or tucked away in the mountains. hiking & biking through the scenic landscape.
there are few places more lovely than sweet, sweet north carolina.

in a few months my lovie & i are headed up to stay in the great smoky mountains.
we will be cozied up in this charming cabin overlooking the nantahala gorge.
how impossibly quaint & sweet is this cabin?

the perfect little getaway for my lovie & some of our dearest friends.
i can already see us spending hours exploring the mountains by day.
and then sitting around the campfire.
drinking spiked apple cider & roasting marshmallows by night.

we have just started to plan our little trip & are counting down the days months.
there are so many activities that we can hardly wait to take part in.
white water rafting. hiking. lake boating. fly fishing. mountain biking.
ahh how fun is this going to be?!

{not to mention. the local towns are sprinkled with fabulous antique shopping}

believe it or not. i have already started planning out my camping attire.
i am going for cabin-chic. woodsy-wowser. rustic-glam.

hello, mountain hideaway must-haves.
this is perfect for the days spent antiquing & wandering small towns.
love the layered chambray. sweater. & vest.
and how about those shoes?! 
love. love. love.

burnt orange pants? tartan button down? charcoal vest?
yes, please!

i have a feeling this will be my everyday hair-do for our cabin retreat.
a perfectly messy french braid. it just seems so terribly romantic.

i cannot wait to share our adventures with you.
i will be certain to take a ton of pictures of our great smoky mountain adventure.
if you are looking for a fall getaway. even just a long weekend vacay.
you should definitely look into staying at the nantahala overlook cabin.
it is so wonderfully charming.

  1. Love a NC plug and the outfit. Dare I say you might be the best dressed person in the vicinity for your stay (no offense to my fellow N. Carolinians)

  2. Ahh, love, love the mountains! My husband and I just came home from a long weekend in Asheville & Cashiers! While we go in the fall too, it was nice to escape the heat of the summer! If you're near Cashiers or Highands, have dinner at the Gamerkeeper's Tavern, right on HWY 64. The service can be touchy if they're slammed, but the food is absolutely amazing!
