Just popping in to share our exciting weekend plans. The hubs and I are headed to Charleston, South Carolina to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary-slash-babymoon.
I've never been before. John lived there for a few years and is eager to show me his old stomping grounds. I'm excited to bask in the genteel Southern atmosphere, eat at some yummy restaurants, visit some spots I've seen on Southern Charm, and shop! Anyone else watch Southern Charm? I think Cameran is so cute- she always wears the cutest clothes, and is freakin' tiny, that bitch. ;)
Two of my favorite bloggers, Ashley from Sweet Southern Prep and Natalie from Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers, both live in Charleston. I've scoured their posts for food and shopping recs.
Here's some of what's on our agenda:
We're staying in a petite suite, complete with fireplace and jacuzzi tub, at the Fulton Lane Inn. (One of Southern Living's recommended hotels!)
Shopping at Candy Shop Vintage, Roberta Roller Rabbit and Candlefish, to name a few. I'm going to get a few strands of Charleston Rice Beads as souvineers to myself.
A few outfits I'm taking include some cute, flowy dresses (one maternity, one not).
I also picked up the annual Lilly Pulitzer 4th of July print-- they put a different version out every summer before Memorial Day. I usually get a pair of Callahans, but with a bulging 7-month baby belly, I decided to go with the Michelle V-Neck Tee this year.
So, what are your weekend plans? Have you ever been to Charleston? I'd love to hear your recommendations!
