If you're on the hunt for a place to vacation this fall where you can be within driving distance of Greenville, SC & Asheville, NC with sweeping views of the Blue Ridge mountains then you need to consider a stay at Hotel Domestique in Travelers Rest, SC. This European-style hotel is located just 20 minutes north of Greenville, SC and a hop, skip and a jump from downtown Travelers Rest where my beloved Tandem Creperie and one of the best spots for pizza in the upstate are located. Tucked into the countryside of the Carolina hills, Hotel Domestique is like a little slice of Europe right off of highway 25. The property is home to 13 elegantly decorated rooms, a salt-water pool and an unbelievable on-site restaurant. Luckily for me this spot is pretty much in my backyard so Katheryn and I recently took a little trip to check it out!
In this weeks episode of #TheStylishSouth I’m talking about my favorite spot for Mexican in Greenville, Local Taco. It is the perfect blend of Tex-Mex meets southern soul food and they use a ton of local ingredients! You can grab a Margarita or house-made sangria and sit on the porch under a string of lights and chat the night away while stuffing for your face with the best dishes around. It’s the perfect blend of a trendy atmosphere with a laid-back vibe and they have huge garage doors that open when it’s nice out. With 8 locations in Alabama, Kentucky, South Carolina and Tennessee I’m obviously not the only one who has taken notice!
If you're in Upstate SC or Western NC and are look for a yummy spot to grab brunch this Saturday, or Sunday, or Monday, or any day that ends in y…. then head on over to Tandem Creperie! I could just end this blog post with the fact that they serve STRAWBERRY NUTELLA WAFFLES but because of my love for coffee, crepes and cuteness I will go on! Tandem is located on Main Street in Travelers Rest, SC which is a uber-cute little town just a hop, skip and a jump away from Greenville.
I think we can all pretty much agree that the best kind of therapy is retail therapy. Luckily for us, Savvy is a boutique in the upstate that prides itself of being the one-stop fashion destination designed to provide the ultimate retail therapy.

Not an issue, Savvy has done the near impossible task of finding quality stylish pieces at affordable prices! And of course you can always find splurge pieces too!

Augusta Twenty is one of my favorite spots to shop in not just Greenville, but all of SC. This charming boutique nestled in the historic West End district of downtown Greenville offers up some serious style. Since their inception in 2002, Augusta Twenty has been offering up a mix of downtown cool and quiet sophistication in figure flattering staples and trendy accents.
If you haven’t heard of Greenville, SC by now then come on out of whatever rock you’ve been living under… it’s May, the weather is nice and I have a lot of things to catch you up on. One of which being my love for Greenville! It’s been named one of the 10 fastest growing cities in America, one of the best places to live, and earned the title of one of America’s greatest main streets over the past few years. Awards and accolades are great and all but sometimes you need to hear it straight from the horse’s (blogger’s) mouth.
