Sunday Funday Charleston

Hello beautiful people! I love the freakin weekend, but I love the end of it the more. Charleston is the perfect place to experience delicious brunches, rooftop drinks, and scenic strolls. These are a few of my favorite hotspots.

5Church

This is by far the most esthetically pleasing restaurant in Downtown Charleston. It’s housed in an old church on N. Market Street with a modern touch. Including, the light fixtures, seating, and the words painted on the vaulted ceilings.

It is a little on the pricey side for those on a tighter budget. You can easily spend $200 on dinner for two. So it’s best to go for lunch on weekdays and/or brunch on Sunday. The menu offers some of the same at a dished at a reduced price. Plus, the carafes of mimosa are $15 on Sunday. Hooray!

Vendue Hotel Rooftop

This is one of my favorite hot spots mostly for the panoramic view of the city. However, they have delicious food and drinks as well. This a great location to come after brunch for an adult beverage or two. It’s great for a group of friends or couples. I wouldn’t suggest bringing children. It has more of an adult ambiance. It’s moderately priced by Charleston standards. Which would be about an average of $40 per person.

Waterfront Park

This picturesque palm tree lined park. Is perfect for walking off those shrimp and grits on a Sunday afternoon stroll. The park overlooks the Cooper River and Charleston Harbor. Where there are frequent dolphin sitings. The famous Pineapple Fountain is located in the park as well.

The 3 locations named above are all within blocks of each other. All off of Bay Street in Downtown Charleston.

A few of my other favorite!

Sol Southwest Kitchen-Summerville, Mt Pleasant. Vicious Biscuit-Mt Pleasant. Grace & Grit-Mt Plesant. Five Loaves Cafe-Summerville, Mt Pleasant. Riverfront Park-North Charleston. Firefly Distillery-Park Circle. Miller’s All Day– Downtown Charleston. The Battery Park– Downtown Charleston.

Spring Flair!

This is a familiar story for a girl like me. I loved this black bardot jacquard crop top by LPA on Revovle.com. Which was paired with the matching cropped pant. But of course. The pants were sold out in my size. Now, I had to go on an online journey to find something to pair with it. Going with a simple black could be a big fail, because of the texture and sheen of top. It could potentially make the top appear faded or washed out. So, I sought out the other colors in the top. Gold and a berry color. I ended up purchasing the gold pleated skirt from SHEIN.com. Not only did the skirt add flair. It made the colors on top really pop.

Special thanks to my photographer and friend Kelly Pyle @pbkpix. Also my beautiful and often used back drop Dowtown Charleston.

Skirt Magazine

Hello Beautiful People! Omfg! I was picked to be on the cover of a local Charleston Magazine named Skirt. It’s the September 2018 issue. They had a contest through Instagram for women to write a paragraph about why they loved their body. Four were chosen. Below is the paragraph I wrote

“I adore my lovely lady lumps. This body is a part of what makes me different, special and beautiful. It also inspires how I wear clothes. I love playing with color, prints and silhouettes that align with my voluptuous bohemian style. Dressing is all about the three C’s for me. Being comfortable in what complements keeps me confident.

I’m a girl with curves and I do love myself and my body. In fact, I’m fuckin hot. Its a good feeling everyone, especially women’s publications. Are making a conscious effort to showcase women of all shapes and sizes. We are out there and we are spectacular. Not just skinny.

The shoot was at the Wentworth Mansion. Which is now a cute boutique hotel, but previously belonged to one of the wealthiest families in the south. You can guess how families gained their wealth back in the antebellum south. So it was slightly eerie for me. However, a very beautiful location for a shoot. Every single person I worked with were very professional and had positive energy.

This is the first publication I’ve ever been in, and i’ll be forever grateful. I don’t know if I’ll get an opportunity like this again. So I made the most of it. 😊

Bohemian in the Burbs

Hello beautiful people! Though, I claim the city of Charleston as where I reside. I actually live in the suburb of Summerville, SC. It sounds like a place where they still have a milk man. Parts of the town look like it too.  I rarely wear anything other than yoga pants and sarcastic tees around town. Even when I haven’t been to the gym and didn’t plan on going that day. It’s kind of the suburban thing to do. I really enjoyed skipping around Downtown Summerville, posing as a barefoot bohemian fairy. That’s what I call it anyway.

 

The sea foam tulle skirt is from Rue 21. I purchased the skirt $9.99. It slips on and off. Which, makes for an easy transition out of the yoga pants. It took me a while to find something that matched to my liking. The embroidered crop top ended up being at target for $12.99. In the same shopping center,thank goodness. It features criss cross back straps and a side zipper. It held me in well, no underboob. I wouldn’t want to scare any school children. Anyway, I bought the gold head band from Claire’s. I don’t know how much I paid for that exactly, but I do know I don’t buy anything from Claire’s unless it’s on clearance for $5 or less. In total my outfit was less than $35. All purchased locally.

I felt sexy and free spirited. The beautiful day must’ve inspired positive vibes 🙂
