Charleston

Hey y'all! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I took yesterday off from blogging since I was out of town. We spent the long weekend visiting my husband's father who lives in South Carolina, just outside of Charleston. I have been going down to visit him with Josh for the past ten years since we have been together but we don't always have to time to make a visit to the historic downtown Charleston area. This weekend, we decided to spend Sunday afternoon there.

My absolute favorite part about the downtown area is the charm! The architecture is absolutely gorgeous and I love all of the beautiful colors that fill the area. There is literally something to take a picture of everywhere you look. Horse drawn carriages, pink and purple buildings, cobblestone streets, and gorgeous flowers are everywhere. The highlight of our day for my daughters (ages 5 and 7) was definitely splashing in the pineapple fountain by the waterfront. Fully dressed, they jumped right in and had the best time ever. I would absolutely recommend Charleston, South Carolina to literally anyone because there's something for everyone. Every age group would definitely enjoy a visit to the area! There's tons of gorgeous shops and amazing places to eat. It would make for the perfect romantic weekend getaway or a family vacation. I love Charleston!

The weather was super warm while we were there and it will remain that way throughout the rest of the summer. The south is hot and the climate in Charleston is very similar to where I live in North Carolina. To beat the heat, I wore a Lilly Pulitzer swing dress with nude sandals, statement earrings, a straw bag, and a cuff bracelet. The colors in my dress matched the scenery of Charleston quite perfectly!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Tuesday!
