This Saturday it was finally warm and sunny, giving us our first taste of summer in the city. That magical time where everyone is outside, everything is in bloom and you feel like a kid on vacation from school again. And if I’m going to relive my 90s childhood – I may as well do it in a throwback crop top, right?
There’s something about the change of seasons that just makes your whole wardrobe feel new again. Since summer has been slowwww to reach us here in NYC, Charleston provided the perfect opportunity to break out some of my favorite pieces and style them in a new way.
I feel like I spent much of last summer at a wedding, bridal shower or bachelorette party. Meaning every time I spotted a pretty little white lace dress I realized I’d have zero chances of wearing it. But not this summer. This summer I’m reclaiming white and starting with nearly head to toe of the hue and this particular little white lace dress.
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.
‘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.
