Charleston Recap


I took a great deal of shots while in Charleston. I won’t bore you with all of them but enough to make you feel like you might have been there with us!

The food was delicious and the place had a very industrial chic feel to it.

Ashlee excited to find a store with the same name as on her Tee
from her Dominican Mission Trip.
 
 
 A spectacular garden area we stumbled upon while walking the short long and humid walk to the Fort Sumter monument to purchase tickets and catch the ferry.
 
 
I live in Charlotte so I felt it only natural to take a picture. Plus I loved that the sign was bolted to the side of a brick building.

One way I would like to see Charleston is on a blue bicycle just like the one above.

A long boat ride back + exhaustion = photo shoot with these two lovelies.

Our final day was spend admiring this mouth dropping nature made beauty, known as

{{{ Florals & Forts }}}

Beating the heat was impossible this past weekend in Charleston, so when I was choosing my outfit to tour around Fort Sumter I went with the lightest, breeziest pieces I brought.

 
 
Shirt: Loft (old, similar) Shorts: Loft (old) Shoes: Report (On SALE!!)
Belt: NY&CO Necklace: Anthropologie (old) Bracelets: J.Crew, Forever 21 (splurge) Ring: Great GMAs Wedding Band Watch: Michael Kors Sunglasses: Raybans
 
To say that I love these floral shorts would be an understatement. They have been on constant rotation this summer for a few reasons. 1) They are light weight 2) They are breezy and finally and most importantly 3) They are right on trend.
 
 
 
 
Heat and humidity lead to the mop that you currently see on the top of my head. Please forgive me as there was no fixing that mop no matter how hard I tried.

Dress: Gap Factory (Similar) Shoes: Michael Kors Bracelets: J.Crew and Jewelmint

I wore this to a wedding I attended in Charleston this past weekend. It was a girls weekend with five amazing friends and I accompanied one of them to the wedding. While it was beyond hot the wedding and the couple could not have been more beautiful. It was a short and sweet ceremony with reception to follow at The William Aiken House in beautiful downtown Charleston.
 
After the ceremony, cake cutting, toasts and a few hello and goodbyes we were off to watch UGA take on Clemson at a fun and lively bar also located in downtown Charleston called Midtown Bar & Grill. Even though my Dawgs lost it was a good game with good friends and a great weekend over all.
