I am weirdly obsessed with new iPhone software, gadgets, etc. I always keep up with the conferences in real time so I can hear about the new releases and changes. That said, somehow I missed that the new software came out yesterday and didn’t download until last night. My favorite feature is currently TBD – but I want to know if there’s anything you’re loving about the new software!!! Share with me! (PS WHERE ARE THE NEW EMOJIS I WAS PROMISED?!???)
Tibi blouse | J.Crew dress | Frame flares | kate spade raccoon flats | Ariel Gordon necklace | Alexander Wang Rockie duffel | J.Crew sweatshirt | Heartbeat bracelet | Theory top | Current/Elliot boyfriend jeans | Noir ear crawlers | Rag & bone black skinnies | Joie Kidmore sneakers | Loeffler Randall rainboots | Clare V. clutch
A few things I’m craving for fall (slash now). The peplum on the white Tibi top is really just beautiful, and I swear by flare denim. Flare jeans balance everything out – especially with a great pair of tall wedges (the kind you can barely walk in). I love the quirkiness of the kate spade flats and the brightness of the Alexander Wang bag (just dreaming…). The only thing on here that I already have purchased are the Joie Kidmore Sneakers – BUY THEM! I’m obsessed and can see myself wearing them pretty much every day this fall. Oh, and I want some ear crawlers/an ear cuff (no worries family members – they don’t require any extra piercings). What’s on your current wishlist?!
As you have probably seen by now, I took over the Candy Shop Vintage Instagram last week – and I had a blast! Instagram is definitely my favorite form of social media, so when Deirdre asked me to show her followers my favorite things and places in Charleston, I was pretty pumped about it. I had only lived in this place about 24 hours, when I bought my first (two strands of) Charleston Rice Beads. I wanted something special to remember that time, and the beads were perfect. They are equally stylish and representative of my new home – which is not something you can say for most “souvenirs” (I can barely use that word to describe these beauties!).
(side note: Sugar Bakeshop + Charleston Rice Beads is another winning combination)
The beads come in necklaces and bracelets in an array of colors (vintage and shiny gold, vintage and shiny silver, rose gold, and turquoise), and I’ve heard from a certain source that there may be more options to come :). I think these pieces are the best gifts – even if Charleston has nothing to do with you or the recipient! The necklaces can be doubled or tripled and make any outfit 10x more chic. I love wearing them long (with a maxi seen here and black tank here), wrapped around my wrist a thousand times for a chunky look (here), or tripled with a cotton tee. The options are endless! Find all of your Charleston Rice Beads here, and be sure to follow along on their Instagram for more Charleston goodness (as if you don’t get enough from me – ooooops!)
Wooooo Chill comes to Charleston!!!We went to Fuel after dinner at Xiao Bao Biscuit (cabbage pancakes + spicy papaya salad + spicy cocktails) and sat outside…And drank frozen pain relievers with nutmeg on top and laughed and then got yogurt (typical)Saturday we BEACHED and it finally didn’t rain on us. Sullivan’s Island is my favorite beach for sure.Post-beach, we headed to the Charleston Blogger Social at Ro Sham Beaux hosted by Rutledge Social – such a pretty space, and so many fun people! Dinner was LEON’S with my PPL (Brooke and Caroline) – it was so fun having two of my BFFs meet each other for the first time!!!BRUNCH at Edmund’s Oast with Chill and Emily – definitely my new favorite brunch spot! You probably already saw this on Instagram, buttttttt…pickled shrimp, french fries, squash + zuchinni sandwich, bacon egg and cheeseburger + seeded toast and jam to start… SO GOOD
Such a fuuuuuun weekend followed up by a long nap yesterday afternoon. Back to the real world this week. Hope your Monday is happy!!!
Hallelujah for Friday and for the weeeeeeekeeenddddd! SO MANY FUN THINGS THIS WEEKEND. Eating at all of my favorite places and doing all of my favorite Charleston activities because CHILL is here (my BFFFFFFFFF). See you back here on MONDAY! xoxo
1) Beyond obsessed with Barbie’s new occupation and Instagram…a true fashion blogger. It’s spot-on.
2) This “trendy” menu from Eater made me laugh…because it is so accurate.
3) Instagram vs. Real Life food. HA.
4) Two of my favorite men: Adam Levine and Jimmy Fallon. Still can’t get over Jimmy’s Bob Dylan.
5) These little Moda Operandi “Fashion Easters” will make you laugh for sure.
6) I received a text saying “your dream husband is in a video in your fb messages” on Wednesday night, and I opened this video. YES, he is, because any guy who is going to dance and make a music video with his daughter is a winner (the song is added bonus). Can you even with the little girl’s SASS?!
