This past weekend I traveled to Charleston for my best friend Ashton’s bachelorette party, which was just a lovely time. Charleston is so beautiful and it has been awhile since I’ve spent some quality time with its great shopping and delicious food.
I posted the above photo on Instagram that got a few requests for some outfit details, so I figured I’d let you know wassup.
I snagged this crop top and shorts in Zara while traveling in Spain, but both pieces are sold out now unfortunately. But don’t worry, they have some super similar stuff in stock and it’s on sale right now. Woot. And so are the shoes!
This is what Take #1 looked like. Snort.
Ah, the difference of what real life looks like versus what we post to Instagram.
Here’s my Saturday pool bathing suit combo. I bought this bathing suit top for major sale on Shopbop and paired with my go-to bikini bottoms from J. Crew. Because they are black you’d never know they aren’t actually a set. My own form of magic.
And then because you can’t go to Charleston and not snap annoying iPhone photos of your food, here’s some of those as well.
Brunch at The Rarebit. Twas quite delicious. This was the special breakfast sandwich of the day — English muffin, two fried eggs, bacon, caramelized onions, fig jam, and Gruyere cheese with a side of potatoes. It was terrific.
Drinks at Husk. This was a “Blinker” — it’s not on the cocktail menu, but you must request it because its amazing. Vodka, grapefruit juice, club soda, St. Germain, and something else that I cannot remember.
Lovely little cheese plate.
All in all, it was a most successful weekend and I loved celebrating my best friend of 14 years. Old friends are the best friends.
