LOCATION: CHARLESTON, SC • APRIL 3, 2017
Charleston continues to reign as a top travel spot over the years, this year not only did it hit number one on Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Cities List but it also topped the list as number one for Southern Living’s Best Cities of the South for 2017 as well as many more like Conde Naste Traveler. Which explains why the tourism in Charleston is booming right now. I talked a lot about our trip to Charleston here but thought I would share more photos and favorite spots. One main theme we read about and researched prior to visiting was the southern cuisine- the city is a hotspot for foodies. Not to mention the year round temperatures are more than ideal for biking, walking and spending time outdoors whether it be at the beach or on a patio.
We stayed at the beautiful 86 Cannon, a fully restored historic single house style boutique complete with two charming piazza’s, a cafe, library and den. The boutique inn was beyond charming and we didn’t want to leave. We spent every early evening relaxing on the second floor piazza with a refreshing drink to relax and cool off before venturing off to dinner. As for resturant choices we went with casual options that allowed us to make last minute decisions based on what we were craving at the moment. We started at Hominy Grill, and spent the morning walking the Charleston Historic Village neighborhood before hitting some shops and making our way to Taco Boy for some afternoon tacos which did not disappoint. After walking a good majority of the day we headed back to the room to relax before grabbing a late dinner at Lewis’s BBQ- the brisket nachos were delicious along with the mac n’ cheese we ordered for the table. The following morning we grabbed breakfast at Poogan’s Porch and had lunch at Minero which is another taco spot we found and the burrito was the hot ticket item. We did dinner at Butcher and Bee that evening and split their infamous whipped feta which was recommended by so many people and grabbed Jeni’s Ice cream before walking back to the room to relax and recoup for the following day. For our last morning, we walked over to King Street and had breakfast at The Macintosh.
I kept the majority of my looks simple including jeans and my go-to Chloe flats for walking around. For this look I paired this fun, ruffle pale blue top with billowy sleeves. The high neckline added to the romantic feel of the blouse and I knew it would be a perfect choice to wear while exploring the historic charm in Charleston. I’m loving ruffles this season and this one, this one and this one are all on my list for the Spring/Summer season.
