Trip to Charleston

I wanted to include a Part II to our trip to the south. Plus, there was no way I could leave out Charleston.

When we found out we'd be traveling to the Carolinas, I was very set on visiting Charleston. So in between the two-week trip, we took a weekend detour and it did not disappoint. Charleston was so pretty and beyond charming.
Details: 

• VRBO
We rented a VRBO in Charleston (the blue cottage in the last pic). It was so cute and the inside was spacious and modern. 
The only downfall was the location was on the outskirts of town. Still walkable to everything, but not in the greatest area.

• Restaurants
The Daily (by Butcher & Bee): Perfect for breakfast on-the-go. Great coffee, juices, breakfast + pastries
Brown's Court Bakery: Delicious fresh pastries and coffee. Very cute spot.
Five Loaves Cafe: Great casual spot to eat on the north end of King Street
Husk: Great southern food + drinks
Poogan's Porch: Fun southern vibe + food

• Site-Seeing
King's Street shopping: Popular spot for shopping and restaurants
Charleston Farmer's Market: Saturdays, April-December
Charleston Waterfront Park: Pretty views and fun swings to lounge on
Walk along The Battery: Beautiful plantation style homes, historic landmarks

I was also lucky enough to meet up with some lovely bloggers (Jillian, Cait + Meg)! So sad we didn't snap a pic together. Next time!

Definitely visit this beautiful city if you have the chance. I would definitely go back!

Here is Part I: Trip to Nashville in case you missed it.

So. Many. Sales.

There are lots of fun sales going on right now!

The biggest obviously being the Nordstrom 1/2 Yearly Sale. Here are some of my favorites for the summer:
Leather + Stone wrap // Drawstring shorts // Arrow jumpsuit // Floral loafers // Boyfriend jeans // Scallop tote

The scallop tote, paired with the white boyfriend jeans and those floral flats. Done! :)

Here are a couple other great sales for the weekend:
• Rebeeca Minkoff is hosting a Summer Sale Event
• Rebecca Taylor is also having their 25% off Spring Sale
• BaubleBar is offering 20, 30 or 40% off

Have a happy, long weekend!

Bohemian Vibes

The boho style is a bit of a stretch for me.

But as the weather is getting warmer, I've been lusting over all the flowy, printed and bohemian styles online.
Floppy Fedora // Denim Vest // Necklace // Tropical Jumpsuit // Sunglasses // Blush Flats // Raffia Clutch // Neon Cuff

It's definitely a fun style to mix with preppy, edgy and romantic pieces. Also, how fabulous are those flats and sunglasses!

Trip to Nashville

Our road trip through the south was a success! Thank you for all the recommendations!

We worked our way through Nashville, Georgia, North + South Carolina and Virginia.

Here is our city guide from our trip to Nashville:
We forgot our good camera... so excuse the iPhone pics.

Details:

VRBO
We opted for a VRBO here since it was close to town and sometimes it's nice to have a full set up if you're staying for 3 days.

• Restaurants
Hattie B's: The best fried chicken I have ever had.
Acme Feed + Supply: Great food + atmosphere. They also have live music & trivia nights.
Crema: The cutest coffee shop. Their breakfast menu is on point too.
Puckett's: This place has great reviews... but I think their most known for their breakfast.
Jack's BBQ: Very well-known for BBQ. Delish.

• Site-Seeing
The Gulch neighborhood: Up & coming area, foodie scene.
Broadway Street: All of the bars and restaurants for live music.
Ryman Auditorium & Grand Ole Opry: Larger music venues
Country Music Hall of Fame: Constantly changing exhibits for different artists

I miss this fabulous place

I have missed you. This blog. My followers. And blogger friends. It's been wayyy too long!

Getting back into the swing of things after moving back from Dublin, Ireland has been a serious transition. Moving back into our home, finding a job or two and getting back into a schedule and everyday routine. But it is all starting to fall into place.
I hate that I have neglected this fabulous space I love so much. I miss creating posts and reading yours.

And today is my blog anniversary of 4 years and I couldn't not touch base. It's also officially spring and my birthday month!
So, cheers!

I don't know where this little blog will go, but I'm not ready to call it quits. I love it too much.

Until I get it all figured out, I am currently a stylist at Stitch Fix. If you are a client, I would love to be your stylist if you want to request me (Jessica Pigeon)! :)

Fun filled weekend

It was such a fabulous weekend over here. Every bit of it.

It started with an early Friday... which always kicks off the weekend right. We had fun dressing up and greeting all the trick-or-treaters in the neighborhood.
"Cat Burglar"
We also made our own treats: homemade nachos and margaritas. Recipes to come soon!
On Saturday, we went on a long bike ride through town.

It was such a beautiful day and 15 miles later (!!!) we returned from an amazing ride, a picnic lunch and some champagne tasting.
On Sunday, we went to a huge antique faire. If you ever happen to be up here on the first Sunday of the month or are a local... this is not to be missed. They have so much good stuff, old and refurbished. We ended up purchasing our dining room table (custom made!). So exciting getting our house in order, slowly but surely.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!
