OMG. Today is the day, y’all–it is the first day of Fall 2015! *happy dance* What do y’all say we celebrate with a fabulously fall ensemble?! Woo hoo!
Over the weekend, the family and I saw The Three Musketeers (which was an amazing performance) at the Barter Theatre in Abingdon, Virginia–where we also took some AWESOME photos in the park across the street *wink* So, for this week’s Weekly Whistle, I am featuring what I wore to the Barter + my amazing new BedStu boots. I have been waiting all summer to buy the perfect pair of BedStus *wink* You can get your own from the Gypsy Spur online or in store! Click here for more information.
Now, without further ado, I reveal the VIP’s first outfit of fall *wink*
Last Friday, I took a little day-trip to the lovely city of Nashville, Tennessee to see the Italian Style exhibit at the Frist, eat at an all-gluten-free restaurant, and shop the local vintage scene. Despite the hot and humid weather (welcome to the South *wink*), the family and I had a magnificent time–such a magnificent time that I just had to share a little bit of the adventure with y’all! So, slip on your cowboy boots, y’all, because this is a Nashville edition of VIP Scrapbook *wink*
I have been away this week visiting family and doing a photo shoot for the indie film poster in the ever-lovely Hospitality State. The trip was wonderful and full of lots of laughs and memories :) Ah…thank you, Mississippi, for always showing this girl a happy time!
Although visiting the home-state was fabulous, the downside is having virtually no cell service or reliable WiFi *sad face* Sure, it is ah-mazing to detach from the crazy hoopla of the internet and social media, but I am a blogger…so, I obviously love having cell reception and/or high-speed internet so I can write posts to share with y’all *wink*
BUT GOOD NEWS IS…I am back in Tennessee with 4G cell service and Charter internet *wink* Blogs and social media posts will resume as normal on Monday–yay! *happy dance*
Now–that is enough about my #TechnologyFails while in Mississippi *wink* Let’s take a look at some of my trip’s highlights!
Monday, I visited the fabulous Biltmore Estate, and just in case you missed the adventure post…you can click here to read all about it *wink*
Now, for this week’s Weekly Whistle, I am going to give y’all the snazzy details about the fantastically flowy dress I sported on my photo shoot at the Biltmore Estate Gardens. Ah…this lovely Molly Green dress just felt fitting for frolicking *wink*
Oh, Vandy, honey…when can I move in? I mean…um…you’re castle is amazing *wink*
Yesterday, I visited the home of George and Edith (which is an awesome name–BTW) Vanderbilt in Asheville, North Carolina for the first time. As I roamed through the Biltmore house on my self-guided tour, I found myself exclaiming “WOW” around every corner and door–I felt a little bit like that mash-up video ofOwen Wilson saying “WOW”on YouTube *wink*
The innovations in the Biltmore House are too cool to explain in one blog post, and they are things that one truly has to see in person to appreciate; however, my FAVORITE was the indoor swimming pool. Picture this (because photography is not permitted in the house *wink*). It is the late 1890s, and you have an indoor swimming pool in your home (or castle) that is not only tiled from top to bottom, but it also has under-water lighting. That’s right–UNDER WATER LIGHTS IN AN INDOOR SWIMMING POOL IN THE LATE 1890s. Mind = blown.
The epic indoor swimming pool is just one of the amazingly cool things behind the castle doors of Biltmore–BUT I do not want to spoil all of the cool things because I think y’all need to visit the Estate and have as many “WOW” moments as I did *wink*

Now, before I spill any more beans about Biltmore *wink*, check out the following photographs from my adventurous photo shoot at the beautiful Biltmore Estate! Enjoy :)
