It’s Shopbop Friends and Family sale time!!!! Shopbop sales are the ones I consistently actually use because they happen sooooo infrequently – usually just twice a year! Over the past few weeks/months, I’ve made the decision to stop impulse buying (good bye $100 Old Navy overhauls) and invest in items that fit into my overall aesthetic/style (comfortable, classic, neutral). So, I rounded up the things that I am looking for this season.
Oh, and these are a few classic items that I’m either buying in another color or finally getting for myself.
A few weeks ago, Deirdre and I bought lottery tickets after the guy on the local morning news said, “if you’ve never bought a lottery ticket before, now is the time!” – the jackpot was in the 300 millions. I was so convinced I was going to win that I made a list on my phone of what I would do after we spent (just a little) of our time at work discussing the options. Here’s what I’ve got…
Take my family on a safari in Africa.
Buy a house in Charleston and completely renovate and decorate it to the nines :)
Start a foundation – of which I don’t know the cause just yet (though I have some ideas!)
Monetarily help & thank a list of people who have made some sort of impact on my life – from teachers to mentors to the homeless man I wave at on the corner of King and Romney everyday.
Hire a personal trainer + invest in something like Blue Apron for meal planning/prep
Give, give, give, give. Invest, invest, invest, invest (with major help of a financial planner)
Open a business in Charleston – again, not so sure what this would look like, but I’m a big fan of a beautiful restaurant or a quaint coffee shop :)
It’s been a tough week in Charleston. We’re hoping for the best with the river swells this weekend, but please say a prayer if you think about it! There are a lot of places that are a lot worse off than us, though, so if you feel inclined you can give monetarily right here.
Happy weekend! I’ll be working at Candy Shop Vintage tomorrow (come say hi!) and having drinks with my pals Brooke and Kate at the new bar in town – Mash – tonight. Oh, and Sally King Benedict is having an art show tonight at the George Gallery, so I’m for sure stopping by there. Her paintings are some of my favorites! Hope your weekend is the best. XO
I wasn’t planning anything for today – part of this new no pressure blogging life :) :) – but when I saw that Tibi was having a SAMPLE SALE, I couldn’t resist. Everything is up to 80% off!!! If I could only wear one thing for the rest of forever it would be Tibi. Hands down. Unfortunately, the brand comes with a bit of a price tag, so I’m alwaaaays shopping these sales and heading down to St. Simons to scope out the outlet store (it’s worth the drive!). Amy puts out the best staple pieces. I’m constantly reaching for my favorite black cami and my new favorite shoes. Let me know if you pick up anything great!
P.S. I’ll be recapping the fall fashion show in Athens soon! SUCH a fun night.

Yet another favorite spot of mine…best Italian in town! I highly recommend choosing the Chef’s Tasting menu (just $45 for FOUR COURSES and more than enough food). They are really amazing at selecting just the right items, and you can even request a vegetarian option (which I’ve had with two meat-eaters, and they didn’t even notice)…
Leon’s Oyster Shop
Leon’s Oyster Shop is perfect for patio dining and rosé sipping. A summer staple…
