Why You Should Take More Solo Trips

Hello, friends! Welcome back to Stylishly Good Vibes! Today’s blog post is about something I’m very passionate about: going places by yourself. Now, I know what some of you may be thinking. “I do things by myself all the time!” But, do you actually? This isn’t me saying that I don’t believe you, I just think that so many of us don’t realize how much we’re capable of as independent humans—whether in a relationship or not!

Why I Love Riding Solo

I’ve always been really independent, so going on solo trips to different places is one of my favorite things to do. I don’t think that you should wait to do things or wait to go places just because you want someone else to come with you. If you’re willing to wait, then wait. But, I’m not willing to wait. I see no point in that! When I want to do things, I want to do them now—so I do.

Solo Trip to Pittsburgh

Solo travel has become increasingly important to me this year. Sometimes I get an idea of a place I want to go and I just go. I don’t think twice about it! That’s kind of how my most recent solo trip went! This past weekend, I randomly decided to plan a trip to Pittsburgh after finding out that the Anthropologie Home Outlet located there was having an additional 40% off sale.

This quick day trip was honestly so refreshing. It was a great reminder that yes, I can do this and yes, I can do this alone!

My First Adult Furniture Purchase

I found the most stunning chair while I was at the Anthropologie Home Outlet, so it was worth the trip! Random side note: if you dream about Anthropologie home decor, you need to go here. The inventory of merchandise is INSANE and marked down to reasonable prices.

After I went to the Anthropologie Home Outlet, I decided to bop around Pittsburgh since I was already there! I went to Randyland, which is really cool outdoor art installation that is free. It’s a collection of all kinds of fun and crazy knick-knacks, arranged in a very unique way on a street corner. It’s a Pittsburgh staple, so you have to go! Plus—you definitely can’t miss it when you’re driving by.

Next up, I went to the Andy Warhol Museum. It was seven floors of his artwork. SEVEN FLOORS! It was a great workout AND the artwork was so cool to see. Tons of pieces that I have never seen on display at other museums! You start the museum tour on the top level and work your way down through his career. Seriously so cool. I learned a lot about who he was as an artist and as a human.

After that, I decided it was time to make the voyage back to Cleveland so I was back in time for dinner! Such a fun, spontaneous trip that I absolutely loved!

I guess what I’m trying to convey with this blog post is that you shouldn’t be afraid to do things on your own. It’s such a productive way to gain more self confidence, and it’s fun! So, I challenge you in 2020 to go on at least one solo adventure. Let me know how you feel afterward. I bet it will be really liberating!

Alright, well that’s all I’ve got for ya today!

Until next time!
