I recently went on a girls trip to Oxford, MS (my bestie went to Ole Miss and has introduced me to this amazing little town). It was my third time to visit, and I came back with a renewed sense of creativity and the motivation to get the house organized. Weird, I know, but true. Maybe it was the break from the everyday grind that gave my mind space to get inspired. Anyway, I had my girls take pictures of me along the way, so a big thanks to them for being patient and allowing me to interrupt our trip for photos. You’ll have to forgive the picture quality- they are iPhone pictures, because I didn’t bring my big camera.

I am so particular about travel outfits, and this one was perfect! I was able to slide my shoes on and off with ease, my toes were covered so they didn’t freeze, and they’re comfy, too! The shirt covered well, so when I had to bend down at the security line, everything was covered. All that to say, I’m buying this top in another color, because I love it so much. I knew I would (original post). I’d also buy these shoes in another color, but I already have them -ha!

The next morning, we went to breakfast at Bottletree Bakery (delicious, I highly recommend). We split a big as your face cinnamon roll. It was so good, it was a highlight of my trip! We ended up shopping on the square right after breakfast. Gotta love a girls weekend with no agenda! Thankfully what I wore to breakfast transitioned nicely for an afternoon for shopping. When there is no agenda, it’s hard to know if your outfits will work. I got lucky with this outfit, so I’ll start packing something similar for every trip.
My favorite shops were Amelia (home stationery) and Nella (clothing). The owner of Nella, Jeff, follows C. Style and introduced himself. He couldn’t have been nicer (gotta love the south), and his store was so great! My girls and I went a little crazy in there. Well, I went crazy in there- ha!

That night, I, of course, had to wear my new outfit from Nella! I couldn’t wait! I wore my flat sandals that I brought, and they were perfect because we walked to Jinsei (an amazing sushi restaurant).
And to end the trip, on Sunday we had brunch at Ravine and went to Graceland in Memphis. I’ll have to say, this outfit wasn’t the best for the airport. The shoes were too hard to take on and off, but it was perfect for brunch and Graceland.
Now, go schedule a girls trip!
