Mother's Day Gift Inspiration

Mother's Day is right around the corner, can you believe it!? I don't know about anyone else, but May certainly crept up on me. I can't believe Mother's day is next weekend - before we know it it will be Memorial Day and we will be welcoming back summer! 

If you need a little bit of inspiration to help you find the perfect gift for the mothers in your life, this post is for you. There is something for everyone, and all those special mamas out there deserve something sweet! To all the moms out there, I hope you have the most perfect weekend celebrating with the ones you love, enjoy!

Three Days in Charleston!


Depending on when you are traveling in, this day could be either a full day or just half a day! If it's a full day, skip ahead to day one below!

If it's only half the day or the evening, then I would suggest spending the day checking into your hotel (I will forever recommend The Dewberry - see more in this post), getting settled, unpacking, and then freshening up before heading to grab a bite to eat! For dinner, or a late lunch on your first day in Charleston I would recommend Leon's Oyster Shop!

Leon's is the perfect place to kick off your stay in Charleston. It's casual, cool atmosphere and really good food are ideal for unwinding after a day of travel. Get the fried chicken sandwich - you can thank me later!

Where to Eat in Charleston!

On my first trip to Charleston about a year ago, one of the most pleasant surprises about the trip was the incredible food scene. I had heard good things & had picked up restaurant recommendations here and there, but I had no idea just how big of a food scene Charleston had. Not only are there so many restaurants, but they are all so good & come highly recommended!

During that first trip there last year, I didn't have one bad meal and came home raving about the food to anyone who would listen! Needless to say, when I headed back to Charleston a couple of weeks ago, I was beyond excited to eat my heart out at both new to me restaurants and also a few I had loved last time. Thank god my girlfriend who I was traveling with is just as big of a foodie as I am - we took full advantage of everything Charleston's restaurant scene had to offer. To say we indulged in amazing food would be an understatement!

What I Brought to Charleston

This week on the blog is all about my favorite southern city Charleston! To kick off this week's content, I'm sharing everything I brought to Charleston with me on my second trip back two weeks ago. I love packing and planning outfits for any trip, but was extra excited about packing for Charleston because it meant breaking out spring clothing! After what felt like the longest winter, I was beyond excited to break out sundresses, sandals, and all the spring things. Packing them was excitement on it's own, but getting to wear them upon arriving to Charleston was a whole other level of happiness!
