A couple weeks ago one of my best friends, Jessica of The Design Belle, came down to visit Charleston for the first time (!!!) with her fiance before attending a wedding out in Seabrook. I loved our quality time together- it was just like our college days again! Now Jess and her fiance both live up in DC so I don't get to see them quite as often as we all used to (although I was lucky enough to see them again last weekend when we all attended a wedding in Virginia!)
Jess and I have always had similar tastes (we were roommates freshman year in college and had coordinating PB Teen bedding!) and I'm pretty sure she was one of the first ones to get me into Lilly Pulitzer so it was only fitting that for our first blog post together, we wear our favorite designer! We had such a blast walking the streets of Charleston and I loved getting to show my Virginia visitors the beautiful architecture and styling of the Holy City! Thanks Nick for being such a great (and patient) photographer for us!
on Jess: dress // shoes // similar bag // similar earrings // sunglasses // similar bracelet // similar necklace
One of my favorite gardens on Meeting Street right down by the battery. Usually this gate is closed but we got lucky and were able to peek in and see all of the beautiful hydrangeas!
We both also wore our Kate Spade Hand In Hand bangles for the day! :)
After our last stop for photos (the Pineapple Fountain) Jess and I headed to our appointment at Lula Kate! I love their gorgeous store upstairs on King Street (that exposed brick and beautiful hardwood floors!) and always love an excuse to visit. We had a blast trying on some of their beautiful wedding gowns (her) and bridesmaid dresses (me) for her wedding next summer!
After dress shopping, we met up with our guys, showered, and got ready for dinner at Poogan's Porch- one of my favorite spots to take visitors! Have a mentioned how much I love their biscuits?!
Love y'all- come back to visit us again soon!!
