Out and About

05 Jun 2024

‘Tis the Season to be seen on the plateau. We welcome old friends as they return for our beautiful summer months and eagerly RSVP for dinner parties, galas, concerts and special events with the promise of making new acquaintances. Dressed in curated threads from our favorite local retailers, a day (or night) out on the town never looked so good. It’s all about location, location, location, whether you are posting your outfit of the day or taking a memory-making group shot to share on your social feed. In a town as beautiful as Highlands, you can’t go wrong!
