Southern Charm

Inspiration for the new week!


Last week I spent the weekend in Charleston and it was everything I imagined it to be.  The city is bustling, with endless bars and restaurants, historic and serves up all the old school charm you want from a colonial city.  The architecture and homes are beautiful, with quaint cobblestone streets and stunning beach views.  Not to mention there’s an endless list of hot spots to checkout, including the cutest dive bar with a backyard patio.

And it’s hot- as in heavy, humid hot.  After the cold spell Chicago had, the southern heat felt so good but you had to dress for it.  Luckily, I pulled out the summer classics from my closet, including a sailor tee with of-the-moment lace up details, denim boyfriend shorts, metallic slip-on slides and an easy cross body bag. Not picture here is the straw fedora, which is a must for looking the part of southern belle and keeping the hot Charleston sun out of your eyes!


Fashion note: I’m wearing a Madewell tee (similar here), Gap denim shorts (similar here), J.Crew purse (similar here) and slides (love these new slides from Everlane).
