Charleston Travel Diary

If you've been following my instagram (link in the sidebar) you know that I spent my spring break in South Carolina! Here are some pictures to recap what I did during my day in Charleston. 

Unfortunately this is the only solid picture I got of what I wore... I was so busy taking in the beautiful city!


Sandy Nights in Short Dresses

Well it's Sunday night, I have school tomorrow, I'm not at the beach anymore, and I am sitting here blogging pictures from a night spent by the water. I might be a little sad, just a little... Not to mention that I have no occasions here in Ohio to wear my adorable pink whale hat and new Lilly t-shirt dress. ): Well not yet anyways.... (Summer; thats your cue to hurry up). As you can see this look is super simple and you can dress it up or down. My ball cap definitely dresses it down, whereas a necklace, or wedges could definitely dress it up. Love versatile pieces! I'll keep this one short & sweet, hope everyone had a lovely spring break, leave me some comments and tell me what you did! Links to my outfit are below :)


Beach Bum: Carolina Style

Hi everyone! I'm super excited to show you all my beachy attire for Spring Break. :) I'm loving this new Lilly pattern (Double Trouble), and Lilly purses will forever be my go-to beach bags because they're big enough for all my random, excessive stuff that just has to come to the beach with me. Ha ha. Anyways, I paired it with my derby style hat from Personalized From Me To You, with none other than a pink monogram on the rim. My favorite Old Navy white cover-up also matched perfectly with my beach theme. I love the detailing and the fit and would definitely give it a 10/10  highly recommend! Below are some pictures shot at the beach I'm vacationing at, Kiawah Island. If you've been there, or would like to see more posts about it, comment below! Scroll down for links to each of my pieces.

Magnolia Plantation and Gardens

Today was definitely one big picturesque moment. Armed with my camera and some beautiful scenery, I took on Magnolia Plantation. It's located in Charleston, South Carolina and would be worth whatever walk, drive, or fly you have to take to get there. On a more realistic note, if you're in the area give it a go! There is a large garden area with 24 'steps' to walk through, and along the way is some beautiful moss trees, blooming flowers, and some bodies of water with adorable white bridges (has anyone seen The Notebook? I'm guessing yes!), perfect for all sorts of photo ops. All of these gardens are followed by the Plantation house, as well as a tour of the local swamp (with slave houses nearby... and tons of gators!) and a Peacock Cafe. That's right, peacocks are roaming near the dining area, and there is a petting zoo with even more peacocks, goats, deer, turtles, chickens, and a pig right around the corner. As you can probably guess, I took some pictures of this breathtaking place, to show you all exactly what I mean! So enjoy, and if you've been here/plan on going, tell me what you think! :)

Outfit details at the bottom of the post. 

Azaleas are so rarely in bloom, but we got lucky and caught them while they are in their prime!
The CUTEST tiny little gazebo!

Yes, this is how close you can get to the peacocks while you're eating (ps. I used a little zoom on this, otherwise I'm not sure the bird would have let me take this picture!) 

Fun Fact: This swamp was the inspiration for Shrek's swamp, aka, the producers came here to draw what they saw!

Definitely spooked me seeing these everywhere...

This field was incredible.

I own the gardens!..... Oh wait.
Casually waiting for my Noah Calhoun to row his tiny boat under this bridge and pick me up :)
