Weekend Wear | The Biltmore Estate

As many times as I’ve been to Asheville, I have never made it to The Biltmore Estate together! The last time I had been was middle school and I didn’t appreciate the history, the detail, or the extravagance. On Saturday morning we headed to The Biltmore Estate for a day of fun! I knew the day would involve a lot of walking and being outside, so I wanted to wear something I knew I would be comfortable in! This outfit is a new favorite of mine. I wore a variation of it two days in a row! It’s very easy to throw together and I still managed to be extremely comfortable! If I would have remembered how unsupportive my Jack Rogers are on my feet I might have traded them in for my Chucks for a day of walking…but hindsight is 20/20, right?! P.S. You are definitely going to catch me wearing this military vest over everything from tees to dresses this spring and summer!!

  2. In love with your vest! Layering it over the striped top was a perfect choice! Have you ever visited Wimlington, NC? I just got back from my second trip there with my sister and it is our favorite place!

    Love your pictures of the Biltmore! We had such a great time when we went back in January but it looks beautiful now that the grass is green (and no snow in sight!) and the flowers have bloomed.

      Hi Patti,

      The post you commented on is from 2013, so unfortunately that bow necklace is no longer available! Here is the updated version of the necklace that is very similar. http://bit.ly/2CiAEqB I hope that helps!
