Well, here we are, ready to welcome November with an October 2018 Instagram Roundup. I hate that every month I always say “I can’t believe it’s already XX month” but it is shocking to me how dizzying this year has been. I am so excited for the holiday season and to celebrate with family and friends. But for now, here are my favorites from October.
Y’all, I love our front porch and this outfit for fall. Shop it, our front entry way favorites, and the 2019 version of this calendar below.
One of my favorite collaborations I’ve done to date is with my friend, Courtney, and fave photographer, Glory. Courtney is from Pittsburgh, so we have been going around to local fast food restaurants that are specific to North Carolina to give her the Southern experience. Stay tuned for where we went in the coming weeks!
Angela, Courtney, Glory, and I attended the cocktail hour at Mandolin Farm, which helped raise money for hurricane Florence relief. I wore this $35 maxi dress from Amazon fashion. Follow my favorites on Amazon here.
David and I will be heading back to Asheville, finally for me to see it at Christmas! I am so, so, so excited! I’m flashing back to our trip a couple of years ago in the fall and how much we enjoyed it. I parted with this poncho over on Poshmark. Be sure to check out my closet shares by following me @mdb0112.
I was proud to help support my friend, Vivian Howard, in her hurricane Florence relief effort for Jones County, NC. She created these “country as cornbread” t-shirts to help with the rebuilding in Jones County. I studied about Jones County quite a bit in two of my grad school courses and was thrilled to be part of the cause.
One of my favorite reasons for showcasing the Hen & the Hog is how awesome this gem is, and that it is located right in the quiet town of Halifax, NC. I brought one of my favorite easter NC girls with me to enjoy the fall menu, plus Glory. Bonus, my mom and dad joined us for dinner, which is always an adventure.
This may be one of my favorite pictures ever because I feel like it’s the most accurate picture of me. I love a good bacon cheese burger and fries, especially from Char-Grill. Want to see more of my favorite burger places? Check out this post!
The best fall North Carolina brews are here.
One of my favorite parts of the Mandolin farm dinner was meeting the resident Pygmy goats, Cocoa and Lovey.
I headed back to the AC Hotel North Hills for a girls night with Angela, Courtney, and Glory and it was so fun! I can’t wait to share more from our visit in the coming weeks, but check out my tips for a staycation here. P.S. One of my favorite t-shirts is back in stock here.
I was on my own for dinner one night recently, so of course I opted for Char-Grill (after posting the picture above). I also burned my favorite fall scents when I got home because it was finally cool enough for it. Check out my favorite fall fragrance for your home here.
