getaway girl: kansas city.

i’m starting a new friday thing called ‘getaway girl.’ it’s where i turn my wanderlust to greed with a special ‘getaway’ ensemble, something perfect for a weekend out of town.

today’s getaway? a roadtrip to kansas city. ever since kate of cookie & kate shared her recent trip to kc, i’ve had a hankering to get back. and what better time than now for a little christmas shopping? greedy girl sponsor habitat shoes is in town. and, you shouldn’t forget to stop by hammerpress and their amazing studio and shop. oh, and birdies — the best little lingerie shop. plus, the plaza‘s all lit up.

so, here’s a look i’d love to rock on such a roadtrip.

+ current/elliott jeans from net-a-porter
+ democracy of nevermind faux fur vest
+ necklace from bario-neal
+ t-shirt from old navy
+ bag from zara
+ brogues from toast
+ david sedaris’ ‘holidays on ice’ on cd (for the road… if you don’t have this already, you’re going to have to make that your no. 1 priority this weekend. dinah, the christmas whore? why wouldn’t you want to be privy to that special holiday story?)
+ j.crew glitter belt from net a porter

p.s. take a look at the design*sponge kansas city design guide. i really recommend this city, guys. if you’re in oklahoma city or tulsa, it’s a short drive north — and completely worth it.

  1. Yippee! I just found this post. So glad you like my Kansas City photos. I really fell in love with KC and I can’t wait to go back. The architecture and the atmosphere are all its own. Next time around, I plan on spending a full afternoon in the Nelson Atkins Museum. I hear it’s incredible. Lucky me, my good friends just moved up there and let me sleep in their cozy guestroom!

    p.s. You’re right, I absolutely need Sedaris’ Holidays on Ice for the drive. Love that man.

  2. I love that you’ve included Holidays on Ice. Santaland Diaries has been a traditional Christmas story in my family for about six years – we are completely obsessed!
