Kentucky Green

Between the dreaded stomach bug/food poisoning I had last week, working, and trying to keep up with my daily life, it's definitely been a bit too quite around here in regards to outfit posts. Fear not, however, I'm healthy, happy and back in action! I have quite a few outfits and other posts saved up from our trip (and even pre-trip, oops!), so I'm going to start sharing those posts today. On that note, while in Kentucky I was enamored with how GREEN everything was. Trees and gorgeous flowers were in abundance, and the whole city felt extra magical with all the green surrounding it. It's safe to say that these desert rats (Scott would admit he was way into all of the greenery as well) were certainly in heaven!

On this particular day, Scott and I drove his great grandparent's Cadillac Deville into the city (we were still staying with his aunt outside of the city in Glendale) and somehow took a few wrong turns and ended up going on a longer adventure than we had planned. We had an old school navigation device as our guide, and it started to fail us miserably (or maybe we just couldn't catch the exits fast enough after they said it was approach, which was really after we were passing it), so we took a few re-routes and ended up in a part of the city that we knew looked familiar and decided to stop for coffee and a little shopping.

We took these photos   in an alley way of sorts behind a popular pottery outlet that Scott's aunt had told us so much about. We parked our giant boat car nearby, and poked around a bit in the pottery outlet. We ended up taking a few things home, and getting a gift for his aunt for having us while we were there. Scott and I each got a mug with an anchor on it, and also some coffee beans a few days later - which ended up being our only sovereigns from our trip (but the best sovereigns we could have bought, as these cute mugs will always remind me of our trip to Louisville!).

Outfit details:
Vest: Target
Top: Levi's
Jeans: Gap
Bag: Coach
Leopard Kilty Mocs: c/o Minnetonka Moccasins

This was also Scott and I's first solo trip together, and I'm really, really happy with how well it went. We got to sit next to each other during all four of our flights, ran together through the terminals when we thought we were going to be late for our flight, visited his family that we have been talking about going to see for years now, explored a part of the country I've never been to, saw my very first White Castle (and even had a few onion rings from there as well), went to the famous Churchill Downs, ate some derby pie, and the list could go on, and on. We really had a wonderful trip!

Ok, I'm off to get ready for the day and run a few errands before a meeting later and wherever else my day might take me.

What are you up to today? What do you love about traveling?
