I have to start by telling you a bit about my fabulous weekend in Charleston for the Southern Blog Society Conference.  The city itself was gorgeous with our hotel, Belmond Charleston Place, in the heart of it all!  The sessions and networking opportunities were amazing!!  I can’t wait to start applying some of the what I learned to the blog.  I’m going to do a big recap post, so stay tuned to learn more about my weekend and charming Charleston!

This week, I will be sharing different outfits I wore throughout the conference weekend.  I shot a few of my planned outfits the weekend before I left because I was worried about not having enough time for all the things I wanted to do and the predicted rain (which thankfully was only a couple short showers).    First share this week, my airport and arrival look.  I wanted an outfit that would be comfortable for both the plane ride and for exploring Charleston.  This summer dress is going to be on repeat all season!  It can also easily double as a swim cover-up too.  The sides are low, so I wore a white bandeau underneath, but I think a bright yellow or lime green would also be a fun and unexpected pop of color.  I just purchased my first denim vest and love it!  I love having a casual option to toss on over a sundress and change up an outfit.  I don’t often wear flats, but I like having an easy slip on shoe to travel in.  It makes it easier to go through security, and to slip off on the plane or in a car on a road trip.  These Tory Burch ones are on sale right now, so I linked both sale spots in case your size is gone at one.  I carried this bag for a walk around Charleston.  I wanted a crossbody that could hold a little bit more than my others.  I needed to be able to fit a small point and shoot camera, my sunglasses, phone, and wallet.  This one was perfect to hold all those things!  I could have also fit a set of keys inside if I needed too.

My three-day weekend definitely seemed to fly by!  I’m happy this is another short week for me, since we have Friday off for the  4th of July!!  Thanks for stopping by and get ready to see my favorite look of the weekend on Wednesday!

    Charleston, my favorite city to visit. So much history and so much to do. You look very fashionable in this outfit. The prints are summery and love it with the jean jacket. Thanks for linking to Tuesday Talk and sharing some great finds with others.

    Love a summer dress. I love your idea of a demin vest layer. I have a couple of Holster summer flats, and I wish I had more. Can’t wait until Summer comes round again.
