Downtown Charleston…

off-the-shoulder-topshop-topdenim-shorts-nordstromcasual-blue-outfittaudrey-jewelry-necklacessole-society-accessoriesmoon-and-lola-storemoon-and-lola-bagdainty-arm-candyThis was hands down the most miserable day in Charleston. It was so hot! I was so bummed because Downtown Charleston is so gorgeous and there are so many fun stores but we were so irritated by the heat that we couldn’t enjoy anything. So, when I had the chance to stop inside Moon & Lola, I took it! Not only was it an AC’d store, but it was a haven with lots of color, fun accessories and the sweetest associates! I absolutely love all of their long necklaces and bracelets. I ended up taking this cuff and this long necklace home with me and am patiently waiting for the mailman to bring me some new goodies, which I can’t wait to show you!

I wore a really simple and casual outfit because I knew I would be walking around a lot, although I never anticipated the extreme heat. You might think I’m crazy for wearing this scarf, but it’s actually extremely light and didn’t bother me at all! I mixed prints and wore my favorite and most comfortable sandals, which are actually on sale! I’ve had these for a few weeks now and can’t even tell you how many times I’ve worn them. They’re super functional for walking a lot, or really for anything. And for the price tag? I’ll take one of each color!

These shorts are also my favorite, but you already know that because I wear them so much! I really highly recommend these shorts for any of you who love denim but don’t always want to wear your typical denim shorts. These. Are. Perfect. (!!). Also, this top is only $25 and comes in several colors… it’s super light and fun for summer! I could see it paired with a maxi skirt or white jeans.

Thanks to everyone who’s signed up for the TFD newsletter already!

    I’m sorry that you weren’t able to really enjoy downtown Charleston — the heat can be such a bummer sometimes! You’re so lucky that you were able to visit Moon & Lola though — it is such a cute store and I am dying to go to Charleston just to shop there!

    I love this casual look on you! One of my friends is moving to the suburbs of Charleston at the end of summer – I’ll have to tell her to check out this store! It’s adorable!

    You always accessorize everything so well! & your shoes look super comfy but all your posts about Charleston are making me want to get on a plane and do some travelling! Gorgeous again, girl!

    Aww so sorry the weather was unbearable during your trip to Charleston. That scarf definitely compliments the entire outfit and those sandals are so cute ♥

    Everything about this outfit is perfection! I am obsessed with the scarf that you wore. I also really love the shirt and shorts that you chose. I can go on all day about the pieces of your outfit that I liked (well until I run out of clothing items) but I’ll stop here. This outfit is perf!

    The Moon & Lola Shop in Charleston was too, too good! Most gorgeous little boutique I’ve ever visited! Love the little off the shoulder top you’re wearing, it’s gorgeous with the scarf!
