Hello, Jetsetters! It’s our favorite time of year when temperatures start to drop and leaves start to turn but it seems like South Florida didn’t get the memo! If you’re over the summer and ready for sweater weather, here are a few destinations we’ve rediscovered thank you to Jettsetter.com. Don’t be fooled though! You might be thinking, “New York?  Really?” But we’re not sending you to Times Square or Central Park. Read up for the most under-the-radar locales in the most on-the-radar cities.

New York, New York

With its lavish style, New York City is a sought-out destination, especially for the fall and winter seasons. Think crisp and cool and cue your favorite seasonal outfits. We suggest a brisk walk under the fall foliage at the Conservatory Garden and dress for the occasion with our knee-high suede boots. You will still look stylish with comfort at your feet. Eat your way through the Gotham West Kitchen, a one-of-a-kind communal dining hall inspired by Hell’s Kitchen and serving up food favorites from around the globe, with our burgundy knit top, leather skirt and leather blocked jacket. Where to stay? The Upper East Side always earns rave reviews and our favorite is the Carlyle, an elegant boutique hotel with Central Park-facing rooms.

Greenville, South Carolina

A serene, sylvan setting makes Greenville, SC a surprising new hot spot which attracts all ages and therefore makes this one of our top seasonal destinations. Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast, a history buff, a foodie or an art lover, there’s no shortage of things to do in Greenville. Whether you want to go explore the downtown streets in your chic attire or hike up mountains (which are literally minutes away!) the style here is faultless. Head over to the Dark Corner Distillery in our floral maxi paired with our crisscross knit sweater to add flare and elegance or dress up your look with our suede heel bootie. Enjoy fine dining in High Cotton with restaurants that boast international flare before retreating to the Aloft Greenville Downtown or the for an unmatched experience. With an assortment of options to choose from, Greenville, SC is a destination you must add to your list this season.

Denver, Colorado

If you’re like so done with the East Coast, head on over to the Rockies for the 47th Annual Oktoberfest.  The six-day festival, known for its classic German brews, is one of the best in the country. Pair this event with our turtle-neck tank, destressed jeans cozied up with our fitted denim jacket dressed with pearls. For a family-friendly affair, take the tykes for a trip through the eight-acre corn maze at Chatfield Farms, and snap an Insta with Mother Nature.  Since it won’t be snowing yet, enjoy a relaxing stay at The Crawford Hotel, located inside the landmark 1881 Denver Union Station.  The hotel rooms feature an Art Deco and Victorian fusion as well as exposed brick walls and 14-foot ceilings for modern luxury.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Jackson what? You heard me…Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This gem has stolen my heart for many reasons. It doesn’t surprise me one bit that this destination spot was included in the “Best Places to Travel in 2017” by Thrillist Travel. Its picturesque views, crisp air, and amazing atmosphere are untouched. If you are wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of life, this place will make you feel one with yourself while you take in the scenic nature. Hike up to Snow King Mountain, which towers over the little town of Jackson or get your boots on and dance the night away at Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. Not into dancing? Take a stroll on Jackson Town square in our purple maxi, knee-high suede boots and light army jacket. The bulk of Jackson’s shops, restaurants and bars are located around Town Square, making it a shopper’s dream. Log cabins lie nestled alongside modern western architecture and high-end boutiques. Stay at the historic Hotel Jackson which blends contemporary western history with rustic designs or the Rustic Inn Creekside Resort & Spa for a luxury boutique cabin experience.

The Winter 2017 Collection from Kendra Scott continues the Italian inspired romance we loved from Fall, in a bold jewel-toned palette. These pieces are designed to celebrate the winter season and all its festive events, with sparkling details and statements perfect for every party.

 

It’s 6:30 in the morning and all I can think about is what I have planned for today, tomorrow and this weekend. When did I get so busy? I’m sipping on my second cup of coffee and running through today’s agenda, which is looking pretty full. I’ll be lucky to whip up a protein smoothie in between meetings and errands.


I choose to stay busy because that’s what works for me. I’m energized by new business ventures, inspiring projects, events and of course spending time with my family and friends. However, there is something to be said for spending time by yourself. I am actually a huge advocate for this and have learned to embrace it as a result of a serious relationship ending. It is during these times you grow as a person and gain insight on becoming a better version of yourself. Sometimes you have to figure out what your alone time looks like. For some its eating by themselves or going to a movie. For me, I find that my most cherished time alone is when I travel.

It’s my thing. It includes just one bag, just one person and a itch to explore. The fact that I curate my solo adventures, stumble upon unexpected explorations and meet some pretty cool people along the way are what makes me appreciate life so much more. I have been to many places on solo adventures, both in the US and internationally. Yes, wanderlust destinations known for picturesque honeymoons and insta-worthy girls trips. Some of my best memories have been made during these times. I ate my way through France and experienced my first bomb scare there, may or may not have been on the back of a scooter driven by a sexy Italian man who (may or may not have) took me to a secluded beach where we drank wine and swam naked in the Amalfi coast, visited a orphanage in Thailand and rode on the back of an elephant through the river and a few more that I will leave for a future post.

Its during these times that I find myself and my voice as a individual. Without outside pressures you can form your own opinions and learn to embrace and appreciate the person you are before allowing others to appreciate you. Finding who you are, just you, without a title being attached to it. As author Marya Mannes says, “The greatest omission in American life is solitude; not loneliness, for this is an alienation that thrives most in the midst of crowds, but that zone of time and space free from outside pressure which is the incubator of the spirit.”
