Bridesmaids Gifts // Welcome to Charleston Boxes

Due to Covid and having to limit our wedding to 20 people, I wasn’t able to have my best girls serve as my bridesmaids on my wedding day. But when I realized they were all still willing to make the trip to Charleston the weekend before just to celebrate me, I knew I had to […]

(Covid Friendly) Charleston Bachelorette Weekend Itinerary

If I’m being completely honest with you… never in a million years did I think my bachelorette weekend would take place in my hometown. Sure, Charleston tops nearly every list for “best places to celebrate with your bridesmaids”, but because it’s where I grew up– and where I return at least once a week– I […]

New Year.. New Closet (FINALLY)!

If you follow me on IG then you know that I’ve had plans to renovate my closet for nearly a year now, but life kept getting in the way and the process was delayed over and over again. But I’m SOO excited because we finally broke ground. The old cabinets and storage were pulled out […]

An Ode to Guesthouse Charleston

My wedding was honestly a dream, but the one thing that didn’t feel right was not having the opportunity to share that moment with all the people we love– thanks to the fear of Covid. There were only 20 guests in attendance, which meant I got 10 invites.. as did Todd. In addition to several […]

From Bach Weekend to Honeymoon: Shop Every Single Wedding Look

It’s hard to believe that it has been over a month since Todd + I said “I do” in an intimate ceremony in Charleston. I swear it came and went soo quickly that I’m still digesting the entire experience. Don’t worry I have several blog posts lined up to share every single detail, but in […]

Everything You’ll Need for Your First Ski Trip

Nothing stressed me out more before my first ski trip than packing. I had no idea what I would need and no one I was going with was any help…at all. They’d just say things like “warm clothes” and “things to eat dinner in”. It sounded simple enough, but I grew up in The South where […]

4 Ways to Elevate Any At-Home Dinner Party // My Bestie’s Birthday

My bestie of well over a decade, Josh, got lucky in 2020. When he turned 30 the first week of the year, the Cornavirus had not yet spread around the world so life as we knew it was normal. But this year, his birthday wasn’t immune to the restrictions that we’ve all been dealing with […]

Bold Coats with Classic Silhouettes // January 10 Things

Winters in the South are always unpredictable. Temperatures can be in the low 40s one day, and the mid-70s the next. In fact, when Todd + I got married last month we were blessed with the most beautiful day because it was unseasonably warm. But January tends have the most foreseen forecast as it is […]

New Year, New Goals // Hayyyy 2021

Almost as soon as Christmas passes, a familiar phrase begins to ring: “New Year, New Me”. And while it’s easy to minimize the efforts that everyone puts into recreating themselves in January, especially when most relapse back to their “old selves” before the month even ends, I honestly believe the New Year is the perfect […]

Palladium Society’s Newest Board Member // Historic Columbia

*Pictured on the porch of the Mann-Simons home during the re-opening in 2017* One thing that I’m really looking forward to this year is becoming even more active with Historic Columbia through their young professional group, Palladium Society. Last summer, as the social justice + civil rights protests erupted, I made a promise to myself […]
