You never know what hidden gems reside within your town.
This location, y’all.
I grew up in Greensboro, and while I heard many friends mention over the years that they were ready to leave, I honestly loved it. It’s not as large and populated as Charlotte, but it’s still a city. It has that city feel, where you can go somewhere and not see 10 people you know [which I truthfully miss every once in a while in Boone.] And after living there for approximately 20 years, I still had so many things to learn: new restaurants to taste, new sights to see, new culture to experience. One of the pleasures of working with Robert Chou Photography was simply that I was exposed to new locations that reflected the beauty of Greensboro. The tye-dyed wall in this post was such a stunning hidden treasure [despite being in a slightly sketchy location]. Where we are at in these pictures is also no exception; this little cove was right across the street from one of my favorite local restaurants [Natty Greene’s– even though they took away the scrumptious crab dip], and I had never noticed it.
Another one of my favorite locations in Greensboro is Piedmont Triad Airport at night- I used to drive out of my way just to go on Bryan Boulevard after dark and seen the runway lit up. It’s like Christmas year round. [I tried to find a picture, but none do it justice.]
This little spot above is hidden in between two companies on Market Street. You know, just a little beauty here or there to liven the place up.

Lake Jeanette surely has it’s beauty, doesn’t it? If this doesn’t make you excited for fall, I don’t know what will.
In terms of the outfit, why yes this is the same shirt that I have in black and white and wear like every single day. And this necklace is great to spruce up any style a little. My favorite part of this outfit? The Toms. I love Toms. [I might have 5ish pairs.. give or take a few:)] These are technically the youth size- which I completely recommend if you can pull them off! I wear a 6.5 regularly, but a 5 in Women’s Toms, and a 4 in Youth Toms [so size down!]. The youth versions just seem to last longer than the adult Toms [and that includes crazy often wear like mine receive]. They don’t make the lace ups in adult sizes, but the burlap material in general is just great to go with everything.
