Though our trip to Charleston was a whirlwind, I wanted to give you a quick look into what we did while we were there! We got in late on Friday night and checked into our Airbnb on Folly Beach. Ryan and I got up first thing Saturday morning to head into downtown Charleston – I could barely sleep I was so excited! We wandered around down by the water and up and down the side streets exploring until we headed to brunch at Hominy Grill. It was the cutest little place and the food was absolutely amazing!
We spent the rest of the afternoon laying out on Folly Beach (I’m in desperate need of a little color!) and then headed back to our house to get ready for dinner. We went to a seafood restaurant off the beaten path (literally, it was down a dirt road) called Bowens Island Restaurant – it was packed and seriously some of the best food! If you’re in the mood for mile high piled fried seafood, I highly recommend this place. It’s got a super casual vibe, and we caught the most gorgeous sunset as we were waiting in line.
After exploring around town a little more Sunday morning and taking way too many photos of Rainbow Row, we headed to grab breakfast at a place called Stereo 8. We sat outside and had some of the best brunch I’ve ever had. I ordered the breakfast wontons – egg and bacon wrapped inside a crunchy wonton and drizzled with maple syrup – genius! Sadly after brunch it was time to hit the road back to Raleigh, but not without stopping at Jeni’s Spelendid Ice Cream for quick sweet treat before we left town.
It was definitely too quick of a trip and I wasn’t ready to go, but knowing that it’s only a few hours away and I can come back any time helped ease the pain! I wore this cute overall look from The Art of Style Boutique on Sunday morning wandering around down by Rainbow Row – I love how the all black and white look contrasted all of the pastel colors surrounding me. I haven’t gotten into the overall trend before, but after discovering how easy this look was to throw on, I have to say I’m definitely a fan!
