Summer Brights

With all of the rain we've been getting in Charleston over the last couple of days, it's truly starting to feel like summer in this city.  For those who don't know, we pretty much get storms every afternoon throughout the summertime, so this weather isn't a surprise.  Honestly, it just confirms that summer is here!  Luckily, last weekend was beautiful: sunny and in the 80s.  As I mentioned in my weekend recap, Mike and I headed downtown on Saturday for a walk around some of our favorite streets South of Broad.  I just love this area.  There is nothing commercial, just historic homes and plenty of shade for a warm May day.
Recently, I've been feeling extra summery, wearing as many bright colors as I can.  This romper is from the Victoria Beckham x Target collection, and I have to admit, I woke up at 3am to shop to line the morning it released (and bought it in two sizes, just in case, to make sure I had the right fit).  I am a little embarrassed to say that now, since it's still currently available (and on sale), but at least I got it.  When I first saw the collaboration, I fell in love with the scalloping and pockets on this piece.  To break up with bold, solid color a bit, I paired it with this adorable tassel clutch I received at the April Charleston Blog Society event.  Escapada Living graciously hosted our group, and we were all treated to a fantastic talk by their PR team and Rachel all about blogs + businesses.  And if that's not enough local Charleston love, those pretty little earrings are from last week's CBS gathering at E. Blackhurst, just up the street from where we took these photos on King.
This look is really my go-to for the summer:  1. There's no use straightening my hair, because the humidity is through the roof.  2. I love putting on something comfortable that I don't have to fuss with.  3. Makeup is as minimal as possible with a heavy load of sunscreen underneath (FYI I just started using this sheer lotion and love it!), and 4. Comfortable shoes are it for me, and these slip-on Converses are my favorite right now.  Walking is the absolute best way to get around Charleston, and it's definitely worth it to burn a few calories and enjoy all the delicious food we have to offer afterwards.  I can't wait for more afternoons like this all summer.

I love that clutch! I'm all about bright colors in summer. I get the minimal summer styling...no point straightening my hair here. I try to work with my hair's natural desire to curl in the summer :)

Love that romper color on you. I haven't gotten into rompers yet, They remind me of overalls but I think overalls were easier to get out of ;)

Really cute romper for summer - the color and scalloped/bow detailing gives it that extra touch! We get the same afternoon showers or full on thunderstorms around this time of year so I know how that goes!
