Travel Colorfully – The Greenbrier Resort

the greenbrier resort pictures

If you follow me on instagram, then you might remember a little girl’s trip I took with my momma to visit the gorgeous Greenbrier Resort earlier this year. From the magic of Dorothy Draper’s strikingly colorful, traditional interior style to the historical traditions rooted in Southern charm, not to mention the more-than 55 activities on the 11,000 acre property, if the The Greenbrier doesn’t already top your must-visit list, you’ll be adding it very soon! I already shared a peek at one of my fave rooms at The Greenbrier and the stunning outdoor pool here on the blog, but today I’m SO excited to finally share my full review of America’s Resort (and you’ll see why it took me so long – there are so many pictures!!).

Click through giant round- up of photos of the breath-taking resort and my recommendations of things to see, eat, and do while visiting The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen that my sister Tiffany and I recently attending the D23 Conference in Anaheim (more to come on that later – I’ll be doing a full blog review on our experience!) followed by a couple of days at the happiest place on earth, Disneyland. It’s always magical being at the original park that started it all – the happy place that Walt opened himself in 1955. Whether you have littles or you’re going for a girl’s trip, taking photos while at a Disney park is a part of the experience. Afterall, Disneyland is the number most photographed place in America on instagram, so I thought I’d round up a few of my favorite spots for photos in Disneyland.

If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen that my mama and I were recently whisked away to the colorful dreamland of Dorothy Draper during our stay at the iconic Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia (more on that to come in my full review of the resort!). In the weeks leading up to the trip, I stalked their website and instagram just dreaming up all of the fun outfits I could style in this stunning historical resort, and this particular room immediately caught my eye. From the bow-topped drapes to the bright and colorful print which was splashed on everything from the curtains to the upholstery, it gave me all the happy feels and I knew I had to pack an outfit to perfectly match it. This  lemon print skirt that I scooped up from my friends at Morning Lavender was the perfect match for a room that was adorned in what I thought was also a lemon print. Closer inspection revealed a yellow rose print, but it was just as happy and colorful as I could have imagined, and I still managed to pull off the chameleon chic effect.

Farmhouse Living With MacKenzie-Childs

mackenzie-childs-farmhouseThere are those brands that we wear or have in our home simply because we like the way they look, and there are those that do just a little more in our lives. They tell a story, evoke our senses, and inspire the very way we live our lives. I’ve long known that MacKenzie-Childs falls in the latter of those categories, and earlier this month, I got to find out why for myself.

Nestled atop rolling fields of hay and blossoming gardens sits the charming MacKenzie-Childs farmhouse, a Victorian-style house that’s so picturesque, it feels as though a Virginia Lee Burton illustration from a children’s book has come to life before your eyes. In the quaint, historical town of Aurora, New York, you’re a long way from Texas, but it’s almost impossible to believe you’re in the same state that’s home to the hustle and bustle of NYC.

As you look just beyond the farmhouse, amidst the nostalgic chatter of roosters cuckooing, ducklings chirping and the all-too familiar (for this Texas girl) bellowing of cattle, you’ll find a former dairy farm-restored- MacKenzie-Childs palace. This is the MacKenzie-Childs Headquarters, a whimsical, wondrous property I thought only existed in fairytales.

Keep reading to explore the magic of the Mackenzie-Childs headquarters and the brand’s home town of Aurora, New York…an experience I was so lucky to be a part of earlier this spring.
