I’m lucky to live in one of the few states that still has covered bridges. The Switzer Covered Bridge near Frankfort has been restored over the years, and on the outside it’s like any other covered bridge; charming, barn-like and inviting. On the inside, though, it’s as unique as they come. Covered in questionable graffiti, it’s a really awesome place to head out to if you’re looking for a short road trip from Lexington (about 30 minutes). NOTE: DO NOT WEAR HEELS. While we were taking these photos, mine kept slipping in between the planks. For superman it was kryptonite, for me it’s high heels and any kind of obstacle. Luckily we were able to get a few photos of me not looking like a total klutz.
Fall weather can be unpredictable to say the least (especially in Kentucky). It may turn chilly, but just when you think it’s time to bring out the sweaters and boots and retire your sundresses for the year, another heat wave will come along and have you wondering “why did I wear this today?!” So when it comes to any fall wardrobe, layering pieces are essential. Whether you live in dresses or sweaters, a piece like this can add an extra layer and dress up your look, without adding too much warmth.
The effortlessly cool and super versatile Marrakech Joelle vest can be paired with dresses, sweaters, and jeans. It’s a year round layering option that can be dressed up or down. Whether you’re curvier (like me) or boxier, the relaxed collar and front snap closure both work wonders at emphasizing your waist. The material is oh-so-soft and just by touching it, you can feel how well made it is (which seems to be harder and harder to come by these days). As a petite curvy gal I typically can’t pull off a longer vest, but with the way this one is cut and lays, it’s perfect. Bonus- Its pockets are perfect if your hands are always cold like mine!
