Over Easter weekend, I found myself in Greensboro, South Carolina visiting my sister and her husband.  She's lived there since she got married over three years ago but I have only been able to visit less than 5 times and have not had the opportunity to explore the town.
This time was different. The day before Easter Sunday happened to be my sisters birthday and my mom also came down to surprise her.

That Saturday, the weather was beautiful so we decided to get out of the house and head to brunch in downtown Greensboro.  
After we ate at a cute brewery, we walked around and explored the town.  
Greensboro is such a historical place.  It was the center of the non-violent protests in 1960's and where those protests took place is now the International Civil Rights Museum.  It was cool to such a cool and surreal moment to see where such change in our culture came about because people knew change needed to be made.

While walking down the main strip, we ventured into cute little vintage shops and a café.  
There were so many amazing local products that it really took self-control in to not buy everything and I've already planned a shopping list for my next visit.

This outfit is what I ended up wearing to lunch and around town.  This vest is a favorite in my closet that I re-discover every season every once and awhile that is really versatile.  
Then, these boots. <insert googly eye emoji>
They really are the biggest splurge I've made.  I will say I found them on sale for a crazy deal and I had to snag them.  During the colder months, if I ever found myself going out for the evening, I reached for these every time.  The thicker heel makes it so easy to walk in and I feel the fact the suede hits below the bend of the knee, the shape will hold longer than some similar styles.  If you are looking to snag a pair of over the knee black suede boots, I am selling my old pair here.
