Ev & The City – Charleston Edition

I am pretty much ready to run away to the South!
After a few days, I have fallen deeply in love with Charleston.

The food (yes I tried grits, and no they are not for me!), the cute buildings running along cobblestone streets, the history, markets, horse drawn carriages…
Added to this, it was perfect warm weather every day.
Ohhh so dreamy – leaving me in a pastel frame of mind.

Under the boardwalk…

I was lucky enough to spend the Memorial Day holiday weekend in the South, by the beach.
The Isle of Palms, just twenty minutes out of Charleston, was beautiful. Long beaches, perfect weather – an amazing escape.

My tropic inspired dress comes courtesy of H&M – and their conscious collection.
So now you can feel good about a cute dress, at an incredible price, WHILE doing something better for the environment. Win, win and win.

Teamed up with some cute spring pumps, and my new venture the BIG HAT!
I have always been terrified of the large brimmed hat, but finally made the leap. Thoughts?

Black & Gold

While black and gold may be a classic combination, throw in shiny gold pants and what you have is anything but classic.
I love these statement gold Zara pants. They can be super dressy, or made more daytime dependant on what you pair them with.

Now don’t also forget the springtime pop of nail colour – here I opted for California Coral by Essie.

Hamptons Happy!

How can one not be happy in such a beautiful place?
The beautiful ocean, quaint buildings and generally gorgeous surrounds leave a big smile on your face.

And all this just a few hour out of the city – BLISS!!

Rock ‘N Red

As soon as you put shiny black pants on – your inner rockstar cheers!
Mixing up my new favourite waxed black jeans with some bright reds. To this I added some silver and sparkle – then completed the look with a messy up do.

A fun evening outfit – glam rock inspired.
