I think my friends and family were a little confused by why I wanted to go to Charleston solo and stay a few extra days after Kristin’s wedding. Trust me, I tried to get some friends to go, but it’s difficult to have your friends take off during the week when your own schedule is so flexible. I was completely fine with spending a few extra days in one of my favorite cities all on my lonesome and let me tell you why.
Every time I come to Charleston it’s usually for work. Planning the conference, attending the conference, and so on. I spend little time actually exploring the city and usually spend all day in the hotel. So for once, I got to grab my laptop, head to a cute coffee shop and work. Try new restaurants and not have to worry about a schedule. And also got to explore the city a little more at my leisure. With the weather being absolutely perfect (zero humidity and 75 degrees) it was great weather to walk around aimlessly and find cute little nooks and crannies of the city.
To explore the jasmine scented city, I wore these new nude sandals from Aerosoles that held up to all the walking without a single blister. They’re the perfect comfortable travel sandal and since they’re a great neutral, will go with everything. I actually used to wear this brand back in the day when I cocktailed at a bar here in Atlanta. They’re super comfy and hold up well over the years. These sandals have a small wedge that makes it feel a little fancier than a flat, and the nude color allows it to work with anything in your wardrobe. Also loving these sandals and this one too. I paired it with this fun red midi dress I picked up from Oasis (note to self, buy more midi dresses!) and was off to explore.
A few new spots I discovered while visiting this past time are The Watches and Rise at the new Restoration Hotel. I dined at The Darling Oyster (but wasn’t a huge fan of their mignonette but everything else was to die for) and had to visit my favorite, 167 RAW. Their fish tacos and guacamole are to die for. I also stayed at a new hotel, The Spectator (full review coming this week!). I still haven’t visited a plantation and plan to do that the next time I’m in town with Cathy which should be soon! Where are your favorite places to visit in Charleston?
