Ahh it finally feels like summertime! Although many people have warned me about how crazy hot and humid summer in the south is, I’m still so excited for beach days and BBQs! Last weekend we visited Folly Beach (in SC where we live). It’s just outside of downtown Charleston and you drive on a little two lane road out to the sandy coast. It felt like more of a private beach experience when compared with the beaches of SoCal where we are from because there were less people with a quaint little downtown area. We ate fried shrimp and Mahi-Mahi tacos for lunch then took a stroll on the pier. It was short lived because it was already so hot out and of course I’m tired and pregnant! ha!
I’m always getting questions about where I purchase my outfits/accessories so I thought I’d do a round up in today’s post of some colorful, spring and summer must haves that I’ve been eyeing! The one fun thing that Charleston has to offer is it’s array of colorful buildings and artwork all around the city and when you visit, it’s clear that energy is transferred onto the people in the form of fashion. No one is afraid of color or prints! Men wear bright pink and gingham shorts/shirts and women wear the most colorful kaftans, headbands, bags, etc. I love that the locals (or even transplants) aren’t afraid of showing their personal style.
A few of my favorite trendy spring pieces are…
A straw circle bag or tote: I’ve been eyeing this one and I LOVE it! Debating on whether or not the giant pile of wipes/diapers would show through though;)
Fresh florals: I could wear floral patterned clothing everyday. It’s so feminine and pretty!
Bold earrings: Ahhh I LOVE them! Hence the bright orange/red ones in the pics above from Lisi Lerch.
We’re already planning a full beach day, BBQ dinner with friends, a trip to Myrtle Beach and Savannah this summer!
