Christmas in Charleston

Happy Monday, sweet friends!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas last week.  I cannot wait to recap ours, but we are currently on route to Jersey then Delaware today to spend time with family and have spent time four states in the last 24 hours.  Instead, before I have time to get all of my photos and thoughts together, I thought I'd share a bit of our Charleston Christmas adventures this year.  
I absolutely love the Christmas decorations in our city!  This year, we had fun on King Street for Second Sunday, watched the boat parade under the Ravenel Bridge, and shopped at a bunch of wonderful holiday markets.  At home, we decorated quite the same as last year, and I was lazy and didn't take many photos (so here is last year's post).

Holiday events included two very different ones with Charleston Blog Society.  The first was our "Style a Blogger" event at a new shop on King Street, Beckett Boutique.  I was paired with the beautiful Charleston Shop Curator, Andrea, and she put me in an amazing Viktoria + Woods blush trench, Elizabeth and James dress, and stone and studded necklace.  I styled Kate (to the left of me in the group photo), and we all enjoyed delicious snacks and drinks from O&O Hooch.
Our CHS Blog Society holiday party took place at StyleDwell Boutique.  Everyone was invited to bring a guest, so a few friends and I decided to bring our husbands!  The hot chocolate bar was delicious and I can't wait to wear the new pieces I purchased.
I'm having so much fun with the Yelp crew in Charleston, and their holiday party at Striped Pig Distillery (one of my favorite places of all time!) was epic.  Food from Graze and a delicious cranberry ginger cocktail made with Striped Pig's orange lavender gin made for a great night!
It was an "ugly sweater" event, but since it's been in the 70s everyday, we bought these fantastic Christmas Star Wars tee shirts at Kohl's (that we also wore to see the movie that weekend).  Don't worry, no spoilers here, but who else has seen Episode VII?!  Please comment so we can talk about it; I hope y'all liked it as much as I did! 

Linking up with Biana for Weekending!
