Two weekends ago Cathy and I packed up the car and headed to our favorite Southern city, Charleston! This trip had been on the calendar for a long time with our #BloggersDoTravel group. We were pretty excited to have a giant slumber party at Kristin’s new house. It just so happened that Kristin was hosting a super fun launch party that same weekend for her site. So when thinking of what to wear, I headed straight to the new Draper James in Buckhead to find a party dress. And guys, I found the most flattering drop waist dress around! I typically avoid this shape at all costs as they tend to be shapeless which I just can’t do. But this, this one is perfection!

I knew this floral flirty number would be great for a southern party in the Holy City. Luckily the weather was also AMAZING and I didn’t even need a jacket to enjoy a delicious dinner al fresco with R Kitchen followed by cocktails at the Atrium Art Gallery. I unfortunately lost my voice this day so I had to cut the party short. Really bad timing to lose your voice the day you head out on a trip with your four best blogging friends. And can we talk about this little bag?! It’s called The Lady Bag and I don’t think it could have a more perfect name. For someone who’s been binge watching The Crown, this bag makes me feel like a royal. This bag paired with my go to black heels makes for the perfect combo to dress up any look, even this look for summer.

PS have you been watching The Crown? I finished it Sunday evening and am already sad it’s over.
