Dear Charleston,

Charleston, South Carolina, is 100% the most charming little city in the southern U.S. I have ever been to. Known as the "Holy City," people are as friendly as they come, and you won't get very far without being greeted with a "hey y'all" or "how are y'all doing" for long. Southern charm at its finest, I love it.

We explored the historic Battery along the waterfront, brunched on southern fried chicken and waffles, ate delicious italian ice served on the cobblestone streets (while regretting our decision to wear wedges), and shopped all the cute boutiques down King Street.

The first of my Charleston outfits (and regrettable wedges on this cobblestone!)

Brunch at Kitchen 208. Had to go with their chicken and waffle sandwich!

The iconic "Rainbow Row" - a strip along the waterfront with brightly coloured mansions.

Once I sweat through my first dress (ew) in the hot southern heat...

Picked up this beauty of a boho crossbody in Myrtle Beach.

Charleston, you were wonderful. Thank "y'all" for your southern hospitality! Can't wait to re-visit. Shop my outfits below!
