Winter White + Beach Blue

My hometown: it gets me every time I'm there.  In the smallest state, right on the ocean, with the best little shops and restaurants... in the summer.  Then there are the townies, like me.  My parents still live there year-round with a few other thousand people, but every Memorial Day, the population more than doubles.  Even Taylor Swift has a home, just a few hundred feet up the hill from where these photos were taken.

While I love all those colorful beach umbrellas and bright, sunny days filled with homemade ice cream, I have to admit that fall and winter days are some of my favorites.  All of the shops have closed for the season, but the waves are still crashing, and when the sun is out, you can still feel the summer warmth.  
I love going back home every holiday season in the dead of winter when no one else is on the streets.  While I love Charleston, there's something about this tiny little town and having a winter off-season.  I love this place, and it was the perfect day to remind me why.

Having the town to yourself in the middle of winter must be nice! I'm loving those blue pants - those are perfect for the springy weather that we've got going on right now.
