I always took for granted growing up in the mountains. I used to be infatuated with city life, claiming I would always live there one day. As I have gotten older, I have gravitated back to my roots.
I LOVE the mountains. They are beautiful, comforting, and slow-paced. Southwest Virginia will always be my favorite, but the mountains of Blowing Rock are equally beautiful . I started coming to the Blowing Rock area in college to ski with friends, and now it is a favorite get-a-way for Joshua and I.
Some things Blowing Rock has to offer; Downtown shopping (including Kilwin’s Ice Cream!), Local dining (we are considering the Daniel Boone Inn while we’re here), Tanger outlets, and with a short drive, Sugar Mountain Resort. We may give tubing a try this year! There’s also the Tweetsie Railroad for the kids, when the weather is warm of course.
I feel like no matter how many times we come, I always find something new. My favorite this year has been Camp Coffee Roasters. OMG! I’m going back for more white chocolate toffee nut that is for sure!
Outfit details: Prana Beanie / Oversized Sweater / Jean Button-Up / Hunter Boot Socks / Black Pants…these are Lauren Conrad from Kohl’s and are my all time favorite. I’ve worn them on repeat for 2 years and they still look brand new. They are comfortable, thick enough to be worn as pants, and have held their shape perfectly. I’ve convinced both my sisters to own a pair….and they are on sale right now!
