*in an ominous voice* It’s time. I’ve shared my thoughts on Avelo. I’ve shared my thoughts on Contour. I’ve shared my thoughts on Frontier. And today? Today I’m sharing my thoughts on Spirit. This post is not sponsored or affiliated with Spirit Airlines and I purchased my airline tickets myself. This post contains commissionable links that enable me to run this site without advertisements (yay!). I first flew the budget carrier back in 2018, from Orlando to Asheville and back, and my flight more or less went off without a hitch. It helped that I’d previously flown Allegiant, and thus had som ..read more

I Just Tried Universal Standard’s New Style Club – and Here’s What I Discovered
Wayward Blog

Universal Standard recently launched an all-new Style Club called The (US) Club. It’s reminiscent of the popular former Mystery Box promotion, but with a new goal in mind: to curate a current, wearable wardrobe based on the season and style forecast. The very first launch of The (US) Club sold out in a few hours (!), so I thought I’d put together a handy reference guide just in time for the next launch. Disclaimer: I was gifted an edition of The (US) Club Box from Universal Standard, however, this post is not sponsored.

Traveling Light: Packing List for a Winter Weekend in Louisville, Kentucky
Wayward Blog
by Alyssa
1w ago
Revealing everything I packed for a freezing cold winter weekend in Louisville. For a moment, I hesitated to include the phrase “Traveling Light” in the title of this post, because frigid temps in Louisville called for way more garments and accessories than I would usually pack for a weekend – but I managed to pack everything in my carry-on and personal item all the same. (I do want to express my gratitude, though – initially the low for this trip was 3°F/-16°C, but mercifully, the coldest it got was 9°F/-13°C. Brr!).

Urban Bourbon: The Perfect Weekend Travel Guide for Your First Visit to Louisville, Kentucky
Wayward Blog
by Alyssa
2w ago
Sharing a first-timers weekend guide for Louisville, Kentucky. Louisville has been on my list of places to visit forever. Not just for the bourbon (although definitely for the bourbon!), but for the classic attractions and the amazing things happening in the city’s dining scene alike. The problem? Flights from Charlotte are typically outside of my budget for a weekend trip, and Louisville is just too far to make the drive over – even a long weekend. This post contains affiliate links and hosted experiences, however, all opinions are my own. Enter: a rare drop in ticket prices on Americ ..read more

8 Can’t-Miss Restaurants in Louisville, Kentucky
Wayward Blog

Beyond fried chicken, the Hot Brown, and Derby Pie, I knew very little about Louisville’s cuisine before I started planning my trip to the city. With famous dishes like those, I can honestly say I wasn’t expecting to find so much international flavor in a landlocked state – but I soon found myself seated at some of the city’s best tables, yet often dreaming of far-flung destinations. To me, Louisville’s restaurant scene is defined by two features: its willingness to explore the globe through cuisine, and its ability to do the classics justice for modern tastes. The result is a city full of d ..read more

Quince Italian Wool Double-Breasted Coat Review

Sharing my honest review of the Italian Wool Double-Breasted Coat from Quince Brr…  I’m not sure what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, but here in Charlotte, things are pretty chilly. Wondering whether or not you need a third piece when running errands or heading out to dinner is no longer a question – yes, you do need a jacket. The only decision that remains is what kind. My style skews overwhelmingly classic, and a camel coat is a natural match for most of my wardrobe – but I’ve only recently added one to my wardrobe. Why is that? Well, there are actually two reasons it ..read more

Setting Intentions for a New Year: 2024 Edition
Wayward Blog
by Alyssa
1M ago
3... 2... 1... Happy New Year! Although it was just yesterday that I shared my Year in Review post for 2023, it was also last year. Much like celebrating a birthday, the dawn of a new year isn’t an instantly transformative experience – we’re all still exactly the same people we were yesterday. But as humans we love to compartmentalize and draw lines of significance, so for some reason, today, which looks ever so much like yesterday outside, is the start of a new year. So I suppose now is as good of a time as any to share my list of intentions for the year. I choose to use that word, well, in ..read more

Sharing my honest review of The Toujours Boot from Poppy Barley. A few keen eyes spotted these boots on my Instagram Stories recently and reached out – so I’m thrilled to pop in and share my full review of this striking style today!

To correct this misstep, I turned to a brand from our northern neighbor, one I’ve l ..read more

36 Hours in Boston and Cambridge
Wayward Blog
by Alyssa
1M ago
A quick weekend getaway guide to Boston and Cambridge - perfect for second-timers. As a travel blogger, I find myself spending more time than I’d like touring my site’s analytics. It’s tedious, but I get to learn so much about the kind of content you’re interested in. And when $75 round-trip tickets popped up for one of the most frequently-searched destinations on this site, I took it as a sign and booked a flight. With only 36 hours in Boston, I knew I’d need to be strategic in my planning to make the most of the limited time at the destination. But thankfully, much like the previous mo ..read more
