Charleston, South Carolina
There’s so much to love about Charleston, but one of my absolute favorite parts was wandering the cobblestoned streets and admiring all of the beautiful homes! Living in LA, I feel lucky to be surrounded by many great restaurants and activities, but I found it so refreshing and quintessentially American to explore this beautiful port city filled with so much history and charm.
When planning our activities for Charleston, I made sure to keep my packing list airy and light. I knew I wanted to hit several of Charleston’s hot spots starting with Rainbow Row and South of Broad and planned ahead because it was going to be HOT! I packed about a million and one sundresses, including my favorite summertime staple- A Little White Dress. It was perfect for Charleston’s heat and humidity and fit right into the beautiful southern setting. Loving everything by Milly, I couldn’t resist this sleek silhouette and the breezy back details but also love this similar style that’s $60!
Inspired by the beautiful colors of Charleston, I scooped up this bright blue bag as soon as I spotted it. I knew it’d wear it all summer long + love how the bold hue complements a crisp white look! (It’s available in white, black, camel and green too!) Obsessed with just about everything else in Beckett Boutique, I also splurged on this Parisian inspired bandana! I’ve been really into the scarf trend lately and tied it onto my bag for a little personal touch. What are your thoughts on the whole scarf trend? I also love wearing them around my neck with OTS dresses too!
With summer just a week away, Charleston fully transported me into a summertime mindset! I’m ready for lots of light textures, an abundance of crisp white, and little pops of color for a touch of personality to each look! I’m linking my exact Milly dress along with my blue bag and “oui” scarf. If you’re looking for similar styles or options under $100, I’m including several little white dresses just in time for summertime too!
