Fashion Show

Feeling Floral

I don’t think I’ve ever been so ready for spring weather!! Okay, so maybe I say that every year but after ten days in NYC and coming home to equally cold temps this girl is seriously ready for some sunshine!! And boy did we get it this week!! The temps were so high that the mosquitos were actually out- who thought I’d ever be excited to see those pesky things? Along with the warm temps and bugs, comes the change in wardrobe!! I was over the moon to pull out my pastels, florals and sandals for these beautiful spring days we’ve been having and just in time for some amazing spring fashion events! This look was perfect to kick off Charleston Fashion Week season at the Maddison Row and Bella Bridesmaid fashion show at Cannon Green, Wednesday evening.

This dress is basically everything I want out of a spring go-to: flirty, fun, bright and FLORAL!! Floral is, of course, huge for spring, but this dress by JOA from StyleDwell freshens the recurring trend up with a graphic print. Add in the fact that it has pockets and retails for under $100 and I think you’ve got your number one Easter dress contender (plus, the cut is perfect for getting seconds at your Grandmother’s house on Easter Sunday). I also love that the dress ties in my number one color for spring, allowing me to wear my brand new shoes, light blue. This color is perfect in so many ways. It’s feminine without being girly and trendy without being tacky! I’ve been scooping up all the light blue in sight, so it was only natural that I had to order these badass kitten heels from Zara. I’m not normally a kitten heel kind of gal, but between the color and those adorable little studs, I figured I would give them a try! Plus, at $59 you really can’t say no to trying something new!

I kept everything else pretty simple with my go-to quilted Kate Spade bag and my new favorite Gorjana earrings from Rocksbox!! UM I literally have not taken them off since I got them in my first Rocksbox!! They will definitely not be getting returned! Did y’all know that you can get your first month of Rocksbox FREE using the code southernmeetschicxoxo?! It’s a pretty awesome little deal and clearly, they send you some pretty fab goodies!

Last night I spent a fun night with fellow bloggers and Charleston fashionistas at an amazing event/fashion show at Republic Garden & Lounge. It was put on by Rolling Rack Boutique, a mobile shopping truck, named Rita to be specific.  Now, while this concept has been in California for years, it had yet to hit the coast of Charleston until now! The truck is taken to local events, concerts and even popular brunch spots {Shelter, every Sunday, ladies}. You can also privately rent Rita to come to your party or event. What a fun girl’s night, right?! Perfect for birthday parties, bachelorettes, or even just a ladies night in! Not only does Rolling Rack stock the hottest styles at fabulous prices with everything from jewelry to sweet little dresses and tops to OMG so sexy jumpsuits, but on the inside Rita is absolutely the cutest thing you’ve ever seen! They have done a fabulous job getting this truck to look just like a cute boutique, except this one can come to YOU! Unfortunately, this was my first encounter with Rolling Rack Boutique so I wasn’t able to wear one of their pieces to the event. However, I did do some shopping and cannot wait to share my new threads with y’all! Since this was a fun, Summer event I wanted to keep my attire fairly casual but with some great summery colors! This floral top is so girly and the colors just pop! It’s also super light and airy- perfect for this hot, humid Charleston weather. I wore it with the classic Summer staple, white skinny jeans, which I of course did a little roll at the bottom. My Rockstuds were a perfect shoe pairing to add a little sass to this sweet outfit. Just the right amount of rock-n-roll to add to the pretty florals. I couldn’t go without throwing on a few baubles that complimented the colors in my top just right! For a bag, I carried my go-to classy white quilted cross body that goes fabulous with any outfit! This is an easy outfit to recreate with a floral top in bright colors, white skinnies and a pair of pumps {studs optional, but amazing}.
