First of all thank you to everyone who wished my happy birthday this past weekend or left a sweet comment on Friday's post - you all are amazing!!! Seriously so thankful of you guys.

We spent this past weekend in Charleston, and it was one of the most perfect weekends I've had in a long time. :) Usually my boyfriend and I are heading to Charleston to attend a wedding, so this weekend was one of the first that we actually got to explore and relax! We went with my parents - they are our best friends and we have so much fun together!! Some Charleston recommendations: eat dinner at Magnolia's and brunch at Poogan's Porch, try a Nitrotini at Grill 225, walk along the battery and take pictures of Rainbow Row, take a sunset cruise on the Schooner Pride, and take a tour of the Nathaniel Russel mansion. We managed to fit all of that into a short weekend trip and it was the perfect amount of activities!

I wore this navy pleated dress Sunday morning in Charleston and it was the perfect dress to keep cool in the humidity. I love the high neck on this dress because it is PERFECT for wearing with a monogram or statement necklace. I also love the navy color - it's so classy!
