Hi from Charleston! As you may have read, I arrived on Friday night for a quick long weekend getaway with my mom for Mother’s Day. I’m completely charmed by this city and totally see why so many other bloggers love it so much. The architecture is beautiful, and so colorful! If I could move into one of these cute little pink houses (or one of the pink mansions!) that would be a dream. Also, southern food is amazing! I’m loving all the biscuits, fried chicken, oysters and more. Of course, I’ve been taking a zillion photographs and will have a longer recap post up shortly.
We just shot these photos yesterday, but I wanted to get them up this week because of these shorts! They’re truly the perfect summer statement piece. Funny story: I actually ordered them over a week ago — they’re one of the packages that never arrived last week. But I popped into the J.Crew on King Street and thought I’d try them on for sizing purposes. (I’m usually in between sizes.) And it turns out I ordered a size too small, so I bought these here in fear they’d sell out online by the time I got the package. (They did, so I was right!)
For sizing reference, I’m wearing a 4 in these (I’m usually a 2 or 4 at J.Crew.) And keep your eyes peeled for more sizes to come back in, because they’ve already replenished the supply once this season! They’re also still available in a ton of sizes on Nordstrom.
This top is a Charleston find, from Willy Jay’s boutique on King Street. They have lots of cute dresses and tops for reasonable prices (this top is under $39!) Anddd, they have e-commerce! So you can shop from anywhere.
I also can’t get over how perfect of a match the shorts are with my crossbody bag. I know they’re from the same store but OMG. It’s near identical!
