I’m Back!!

I’m beyond thrilled to be back from my little SMC blogging hiatus!! Fall has been absolutely crazy and I’m so happy to finally share everything I was blessed to be a part of with y’all! I’ve also got some exciting projects in the works, so be sure to stay tuned for more deets on those and maybe even a little renovation to the site… For now, here’s a recap of what I’ve been up to the past couple of weeks!

If you follow me on any form of social media, this isn’t news to you. But, this is my first official announcement, on the blog, of my new position! I’m beyond thrilled to be representing the Charleston market for Carolina STYLE Magazine!! STYLE embodies not only the fashion, but also the culture of the Carolina’s. It is now my responsibility to provide this perspective of Charleston by finding savvy contributors and engaging content for the site. Fashion-check, Food-Check, Events-Check, Arts & Entertainment-Check- yeah it’s basically everything I love all in one spot and I’m living the dream!! I am even currently working on an editorial for our Holiday Book {pinch me!}

What do you get when you gather local bloggers in a beautiful location and serve fabulous cocktails and yummy ice cream? A Rutledge Social event! It was a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon, laughing with fellow creatives over delicious treats from Flute Bar Service and Ye Ole Fashioned Ice Cream & Sandwich Shop. Which if you’ll remember, my husband owns and was so gracious to provide the ice cream (hence the cutsie me holding a bowl of ice cream pic)! There was lots of swooning to be done at Ro Sham Beaux, where the event was held, as there is a gorgeous chandelier or trendy velvet sofa in every corner. Lots of time was also spent in the photo booth, complete with chalkboards to write our social media handle, and Catherine Ann Photography behind the lens. It was a beautiful day spent with beautiful people!!

I was BEYOND honored to have been asked to be a panelist for the Teen Vogue Back to School Saturday at the College of Charleston a couple of weekends ago! I’ve been so blessed to meet some truly fabulous ladies lately and Christine Pearson, who contacted me about the event, is certainly one of them! The panel consisted of fellow bloggers, Tara Langdale of Northern Lights-Southern Belles, Chloe Fusselman of Topknots and Polkadots and Taylor Brobisky of Holy City in Heels and myself. We spoke a bit about our blogs and ourselves and then opened the floor to questions about all things fashion from the CofC sorority girls! In addition to being on cloud nine about participating in a Teen VOGUE event, we also had a total blast!! You can read ALL about the #BTSS and see even more photos here on the Carolina STYLE page!

Wine, Dine and Design

When I was asked by my good friend, Jeanne Everett, to attend the Wine, Dine and Design event where she would be showing her original designs from her line Corinne and Molly, it was a no brainer. The charity event was held in Columbia and was to benefit the South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind. It showcased local lines, from established brands such as Southern Tide to emerging designers like Jeanne of Corinne and Molly. The ambiance was beautiful with candlelit tables lining the runways. The Corinne and Molly collection was vibrant with rich jewel tones of sapphire green and cobalt blue. Jeanne also used a lot of metallic, from a sassy silver top to a feminine gold polka dot matching set. Her show and the event itself were a huge success! I can’t wait to see more from Jeanne with Corinne and Molly! Head here in case you missed my Insta takeover of her account- I had a blast and got some great shots of not only the show but also behind the scenes!

 

Dallas Trip

Last, but not least, two weekends ago my mom and stepdad, husband and I went to Dallas, Texas celebrating my stepdad’s 50th Birthday! Noooo I didn’t bring home Ebola, but we did have a wonderful time spent over family and football! Because let’s face it, as much as I adore all of this fashion stuff, family is my one true love. In fact, I love them SO much that I didn’t even drag anyone to do any shopping the whole weekend! And that’s tough because Dallas has some fabulous shopping. Okay, so we did do some window-shopping in Highland Park Village last night {drool} but that really was it. Thank goodness all of the stores were closed because this adorable area of town provides you with stores like Chanel, Louboutin, Tom Ford and the likes. It is a can’t miss and my favorite restaurant in Dallas,Patrizios, also happens to be there. (we are way spoiled by our food in Charleston, because the Dallas restaurants do not impress me, I just love the ambiance at this little spot though) However, my main favorite spot when going to the Big D is Billy Bob’s AKA the world’s largest honkey tonk. It lives up to its title by boasting an indoor LIVE bull riding arena, concert stage, restaurant and two huge dance floors to get your two stepping on! It’s exactly how you would imagine a night in Texas! It was another family vacation weekend for the books and I certainly think my stepdad would agree the perfect way to spend his last weekend being 49!

OH and I guess I also can’t forget the fact that we’ve been to every home game this Clemson football season. Yes, my life has been ruled by football lately and Yes, I love my husband very much.
