Summer Nights

DSC_0593It’s been a little while since my last post, as we’ve been traveling most of spring, but I’m so excited to begin sharing our adventures with y’all! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know I’m most excited to post about our California trip, but this evening I wanted to show you a look I wore while on a quick weekend getaway to Myrtle Beach. Now, the “dirty myrtle” isn’t the most luxurious destination, but we go every year for the Monday After the Master’s charity golf tournament, put on by Hootie and the Blowfish, and we always have a great time! Plus, it’s an easy 45 minute drive from home and who can say no to a little calabash shrimp buffet every once in a while?! (JOKING) Seriously though, it’s a weekend we look forward to every year and this year we were also able to spend it with my parents to celebrate my mom’s birthday! This evening’s look was what I wore to the M.A.M. concert that takes place after the tournament- talk about a good time!!
DSC_0602DSC_0588One of my absolute most favorite trends this summer is off the shoulder! The style is so feminine and flirty, and I love showing off my shoulders and collarbone. It’s something I can wear to be sexy without feeling overexposed. When I saw this top from one of my go-to brands, Show Me Your Mumu, I knew I had to have it! Not only does the white go with everything, but it really makes your tan skin glow after a long day on the beach. I paired the top with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans to be sure to keep things casual and comfortable.
DSC_0620DSC_0606I accessorized with these fabulously boho layering necklaces from II Brunettes that have quite possibly been one of the best purchases I’ve ever made! I wear them together, separate, mixed with other necklaces- the options are seriously endless. I just love how the green pendant brings just a touch of color to this mainly neutral ensemble. I did stick with nude for my bag and shoes because I think it kept the outfit cohesive and classy. When in doubt- stick with neutrals!!  DSC_0590This is the perfect outfit for a summer night out to a concert, dinner date or drinks with friends. It’s super classy and put together, while still remaining casual and effortless, which is basically how I strive to look at all times {but realistically don’t}. If you wanted to dress this down even further for daytime, you could wear a pair of denim cutoffs with gladiator sandals and throw on a straw panama hat. (see below for this exact version on me!)

WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM!!! Since we’re in the dog days of summer, I decided to give y’all a glimpse of what I actually would like to be doing all.the.time at this point- eating ice cream!! It’s just so hot outside and the cold, sweet ice cream tastes soooo good!! These pictures were shot at my favorite spot in town for ice cream {and fries, BLT’s, hotdogs} Ye Ole Fashioned. I may be a little biased because my husband owns the two in Summerville and the rest are all owned by his family, BUT they were also voted Best Ice Cream in Charleston for a local City Paper contest {8 years in a row} that is a pretty big deal. So, the rest of Charleston agrees!! This flirty, fun dress (maxi version here for 30% off) is the perfect choice for something like going to have ice cream. The colors just pop off of it and instantly put you in a fun mood! It’s not just playful though, the low cut back also gives you a little bit of a sexy feel. Pair it with wedges for the perfect summer date night outfit! The light material makes it really breathable and great for hot summer days or nights. Since I was going for a daytime look, I dressed it down with these sandals. I like to think of these as my prettier version of a Birkenstock. They’re a little bulkier than your average sandal, but they still have the gold strap across the top that keeps them nice and feminine. They are perfect for adding a little chic-ness to this otherwise very girly dress. Considering the bright colors, I wore my blue mirrored aviators to play that up a bit more. This is a really fun summer outfit to wear that makes you feel sexy, fun and girly all in one!! Now, go get some ice cream!!! {see below for coupon}
