Just Like A Charleston Lady


'Tis the season for trip planning. Just in the past 3 days I've gotten emails from 4 different people planning trips to Charleston looking for recommendations of places to stay, where to eat, which shops are musts... I get these emails all the time and totally plan to have a Charleston recommendation page on my new site to make it easy for everyone (and myself).

But it got me thinking about how amazing Charleston is and why people want to come. Obviously it's gorgeous, nice weather, on the beach, historic, crazy good culinary scene. But it's the people here that make Charleston awesome, too. Did you know that we're considered to be one of the friendliest, most good looking, fashionable towns around? It's true!!

So if you want a little Charleston style here are a few spring notes (that don't include Lilly Pulitzer dresses and Jack Rogers sandals - no, there's nothing wrong with them - please don't send me hate mail!!)

A great blazer. Better yet, make it a floral blazer.

BCBG Jacket (also available here)  *  Iggy Floral  *  Tapestry Moto Jacket

Plenty of garden party dresses. It's about color, People.


Load up on maxis too. Loving these budget finds ($23 - $41 - lots of different color options, too).

And some new, fresh sandals.



Just to start, of course :) Happy Friday!

Love everything! Especially the bcbg blazer and the romper and peplum dress, the colors of those two are beautiful, especially together (not that you could wear them at the same time of course!)

I love some floral, some lace and a maxi. I will do just like a Charleston lady!

I agree that all these looks are perfect for Charleston. I LOVE living where people like to vacation. I LOVE that lace romper & the maxi dresses. Definitely a must have!

I knew there was a reason I wanted to visit Charleston beside just meeting you and Natalie (c; And I'm so mad at you for introducing me to those maxi dresses, I want one in every color...excessive, I know...but worth it, right?

Couldn't agree more. I have a MAJOR city crush on Charleston + I'm excited that I'll be moving to Charlotte this summer (only a few hours from family in Charleston). Just bookmarked Troubador- really beautiful pieces.

Such a genius idea to do a tab on your new page. I get emails all the time too! Love that Sea dress.

OOhh..so happy to have found you. Love, love your style already. And love that you're in Charleston. I'm in Charlotte & we roadtrip to Charleston/Isle of Palms every summer. Looking forward to seeing more of what you love & getting a little style inspiration. Have an amazing week!
