Happy Monday! After a relaxing couple of weekends away, it’s the first Monday in a while that I can actually say I’m excited and ready to be back to work. Though I love being home and lazy, it’s also nice to get out and explore new places and take adventures with good friends. On Friday, I shared part one of my girls’ weekend away to Charleston, South Carolina at the Belmond Charleston Place. As I mentioned here, I really can’t recommend this hotel enough! Though our weekend did involve quite a bit of eating and lounging around, here’s a peek into what else we fit into our couple of days in Charleston!
On Friday we headed out to grab a late night bit at The Rarebit – we were all starving after a long day of traveling and needed to get some delicious food in our bellies! They serve breakfast all day long, so I went for a side of breakfast potatoes and mac and cheese (totally diet friendly… not)! The next morning we grabbed a yummy breakfast up at our private hotel lounge and then headed out for a day of exploring.
We paused for a late lunch at Magnolia’s – we were in desperate need of somewhere to escape the heat and humidity! Magnolia’s was so charming (and cool!) and the roasted turkey sandwich was to die for! The rest of our afternoon was spent being total girls at the hotel – lounging in these adorable Plum Pretty Sugar PJ’s, drinking champagne, and snacking on petite afternoon sweet treats. It was heavenly!
That evening we all got ready – dressed head to toe in Rebecca Minkoff, to head out to a scrumptious dinner. We ate at a new restaurant called Feathertop – if you go I highly recommend the sweet potato ravioli – it was mouthwateringly good! The atmosphere of the restaurant was the cool casual feel that you would find in San Francisco, with a mix of modern and rustic vintage, and an elevated and eclectic menu.
We were definitely not ready to check out come Sunday – it was bittersweet to say goodbye to our perfect hotel suite. We finished off our time in Charleston with an iced lavender latte at Black Tap Coffee (I totally understand the hype now) and afternoon strolls through some of our favorite Charleston neighborhoods. We headed down to the waterfront area, saw the pineapple fountain with all the local kids jumping in to cool off, and stopped by The Griffon for a bite to eat before heading out of town.
