A few days ago my blogger bestie Jess and I had a staycation at the CUTEST HOTEL in the Short North in Columbus called Le Meridien The Joseph. Jess is originally from Ohio but moved to Arizona and when she told me she was coming to visit I knew we had to stay here! I adore Jess, we are literally so similar so she was totally game to have a bestie staycation at this super chic, sophisticated hotel. 

We shoot with the same photographer, Kate (I'm sure you've seen her on my stories!) so as soon as we got to the hotel and relaxed we started shooting. Well no that's a lie, we popped some champagne first haha! They were so sweet to leave a bottle in our room as a welcoming gift! :) Our room was huge and so spacious and we had an amazing view of downtown Columbus.

The Short North has so much character and there's so much to do so Le Meridien The Joseph is the perfect place to stay while you're visiting. After we both shot a few looks we headed down to Soul, the hotel bar. We ordered truffle fries and cheese curds and O M G you guys. They were delicious! Our drinks were super good too! 

We headed across the street to Forno for some more cocktails and yummy pizza! When we went back to the room we threw on our sweats and I talked Jess into dessert. I never used to be a "sweets" person until I met my husband. He literally has to eat dessert after almost every meal. We ordered room service and got delicious carrot cake! We also dug into the dark chocolate almonds they had in the room, you should try these for sure. 

The next morning Jess and I had massages at the spa located in The Joseph. It was incredible. You get the room all to yourself and you get to choose what scent of oil for the massage. They even put hot towels on your feet! After the massage I relaxed in a heated chair and did some stories to show you guys how amazing the view was! 

After our massages we packed up and checked out even though we didn't want to leave! If you are looking for a place to stay in the Short North/downtown area while you are in Columbus be sure to check out Le Meridien The Joseph. This was my second time staying here and I will definitely be back!

4 Items to get you ready for fall

August 7, 2018


Top: Chicwish c/o 
Earrings: Mulberry & Grand c/o
Bag: Gucci
Jeans: Express (ON SALE TODAY!)
Boots: Vince Camuto (last year), but I'm loving these

This V neck top is seriously the cutest. I love that it's so classy and chic but also casual! I saw a few girls pairing it with a belt and I LOVE that idea too. I would definitely wear this to go to meetings or dinner with Justin! I got this top from Chicwish and it runs true to size. All of their clothes are such good quality, I love them! I linked some other things I'm loving below for you guys to check out. 

For today's post I wanted to talk about four items you need for Fall! No these aren't going to be sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes and uggs. These are the things that you can switch out with TONS of outfits and re wear multiple ways! Here we go:

1) Neutral topthis one I'm wearing you could wear anywhere. It's so cute, I think the buttons add so much detail! 

2) Statement earrings- the ones I'm wearing are from Mulberry & Grand, they have SUPER cute ones!

3) Tan Bag- my Gucci is a splurge but the way I look at it is you will ALWAYS need a neutral bag 

4) Booties! Ones that are on my *WANT* list right now are these! SWOON

What are you most excited about for Fall? I literally can't wait and hope this helps you plan your looks better! 

Thank you to Chicwish for sponsoring today's post!
