Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Crested Butte

Crested Butte

Hmmm... what to say about Crested Butte. I can say that it was definitely a different type of get away from my usual random excursions, but very interesting nonetheless. I took a 4.5 hour road trip from Denver, Colorado over mountains and masses of land (very beautiful sight) until I reached a very small town that has a projected population of only 1,500. Did I feel like an outcast? No, but was I? Yes! To start, I was one of maybe less than a handful of African Americans for miles, I was dressed very casual to my sense, but to an extremely casual town I was dressed for the Grammy's, and lastly I was one of the youngest in a crowd of much older people, but thats nothing new. The food was dive bar quality but I would definitely have to commend The Secret Stash Pizzeria for keeping the town alive and also having a super cute mini lounge below them. Lets talk about the super modern speakeasy bar that was tucked away in a not so busy corner. This bar was amazing. It had some of the most amazing cocktails that I've had in a while (and I've had a galore of drinks haha). The name of it is The Dogwood Cabin, and my drink of recommendation would be the "Beetnik"! 

Setting those factors aside, it didn't bother me much at all. I engulfed myself in my surroundings and took time to breath in the amazingly fresh, crisp air. I used this opportunity to wear no makeup, no heels, go heat free on my hair; I didn't even wear perfume. It was nice! Finally a trip where I didn't think much about what to pack and how to squeeze everything in a tiny carry-on luggage. I simply packed mostly workout gear, jeans, t-shirts, sweaters, 1 sneaker and my Chanel boots. I didn't get many outfit photos because many were repetitive (jeans, sweater, boots), but I got a few more important photos for you guys to enjoy.
