Yesterday (Thursday) my friend Carolyn & I made the (hour) drive to Johnson's Drive In & then went to Fearrington Village for coffee and to enjoy this awesome weather! If you are in central NC and have never gone to Fearrington Village, I highly recommend it! It's so quaint and picturesque. They have a cute coffee/wine shop, a couple restaurants, boutique shopping, and the cutest book store! You can walk around the gardens (def go in the spring, there are flowers everywhere!) and look at the rustic barn and even walk to the pastures where they have goats and cows. It's just a nice low-budget outing :) Of course we took blog photos too, like duh haha. It was in the upper 60s so I took the opportunity to bust out my open toed booties from Her Boutique. I love this type of shoe with flares. I also recently purchased this green tunic because I have it in black and it is one of my favorite tops! You can wear it untucked with leggings like I did here or tucked in slightly with flares like above! Versatile basics are everything. Anyway, we had such a good day. We saw construction guys literally racing each other down the highway (like on foot, I kid you not, idk what they were doing but they were laughing and running like 5 yr old little boys ha), ate the best burgers in NC, and even saw A LLAMA on the way home! OMG those things are so freakin adorable. Give me all the animals. I love random adventures :)

PS: My husband bought an Apple Watch maybe a year ago? and neverrr wore it. Like he wore it twice. So I started wearing it during workouts and love that you can see the time, your messages, answer calls, etc but HATED how those ugly straps looked! Thank heavens for this pretty design by The Ultimate Cuff, I love the watch now. It looks sleek and modern! You can get 20% off with code MESSYHAIR20 :)
