THE SET | Courtney DeBeikes
Meet Courtney DeBeikes, real estate boss lady and mama to Duke — and one of my very best girlfriends + favorite travel companions. Court is one of those always-stylish, always-put-together people (it would almost be annoying if she wasn’t also so genuinely cool, fun, funny, and have a heart of gold to boot). She has the best taste and is always up for adventure, so you will love reading about her travel style!
THE SET (as in, jetset) is a blog series that gives a peek into the travel styles of the jetsetters we adore and admire… Because we’re all a little voyeuristic sometimes – and who isn’t looking for a little distraction right now?
