CHARLESTON: PLAID SHORTS AND OFF THE SHOULDER TOP

The Steele Maiden: Summer style in Charleston - plaid shorts and linen off the shoulder top

As soon as we landed in Charleston I couldn’t wait to slip into this summer-y outfit. In fact, I had bought these shorts (on majorrrr sale) weeks before and was saving them for exactly this occasion. Well mainly for weather above 60 degrees. But a matching pastel-hued city definitely didn’t hurt.

FLORAL MIDI DRESS AND NAVY STRAW HAT

The Steele Maiden: Floral eyelet midi dress and navy wide brim straw hat

‘Actually, the best gift you could have give her was a lifetime of adventures…’ 

I love that quote by Lewis Carroll. Adam and I agreed from the beginning of our relationship that we’d rather spend money on shared travels than gifting each other ‘things’ for holidays and birthdays. There just isn’t a pair of designer shoes in the world that I’d prefer over you know.. seeing the actual world. So for my 30th birthday we went back to Charleston (a city we’d briefly stopped through on our drive cross country in 2012) and as a gift on the last day, Adam surprised me with details of our next trip. Hint.. it’s a big one! Here’s to a lifetime of adventures.

DATE NIGHT STYLE: PINK RUFFLE WRAP DRESS AND TASSEL EARRINGS

The Steele Maiden: Date Night - Pink Ruffle Wrap Dress and Tassel Earrings

On Saturday, Adam and I celebrated my 30th birthday, and our first night in Charleston, by getting dressed up and heading out for dinner and drinks. I’ll be sharing all of our stops along the unofficial food and drink tour we indulged in on during our trip, but for now let’s focus on the outfit. This pink ruffle wrap dress made me feel like a cupcake as soon as I tried it on.. so what better time to wear it than my birthday?

SUMMER LINEN WITH OLD NAVY

The Steele Maiden: Lightweight summer linen from Old Navy

We headed to Charleston in search of warm, sunny weather to escape the cold, dreary spring we’ve been suffering from in New York. And we got exactly what we were looking for. The days were nearly 90 degrees – with plenty of humidity to go around – so I was thankful that I had packed these easy linen pieces from Old Navy.

WHAT TO PACK: CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA

The Steele Maiden: What to Pack for a Warm Weather Trip to Charleston, South Carolina

We’re in the middle our stay here in sunny Charleston, South Carolina and enjoying every minute. While I won’t be sharing full outfit posts until we’re back (be sure you’re following along on Instagram to see the trip in real time!), I thought I’d share a quick look at exactly what I packed for the trip. My suitcase is filled with lots of lightweight cotton and linen pieces that I can’t wait to wear this summer, plus this new mineral sunscreen and this book that is a fun beach read. See you back here when I’m home!
