Scenes From Our Weekend

I hope everyone is staying safe and dry.  I know Charleston and Columbia got hit hard by Joaquin.  Lots of flooding and power outages.  Praying for all those who experienced damage from the storm and I hope it clears up soon.

Thursday night I got out of the house just as all the rain started.  I attended the Artfully Inspired Dinner hosted by Bellacore and So Good.  The dinner featured 4 artists work : Teil Duncan, Dorothy Shain, Way Way Allen and Kate Long Stevenson.  Katie is one of my dearest friends so I was so happy to support her and see her gorgeous art.  I ended up sitting with Dorothy too who was such a doll and just so sweet.

The table setting was perfection and Dorothy actually designed the table cloth. 
I would love to create something similar at home when we host Thanksgiving.

Each of the 4 courses were made to resemble the artist's work. It was a really cool concept.

Katie's gorgeous art.

You can see some of Dorothy's work behind us.

I am wearing:

Friday we spent most of the day indoors because the weather was so bad.  
We did venture out for breakfast and Frances insisted on dressing herself.  She clearly loves leopard like her Mama.

The kids got stir crazy later on and Sterling wanted to dress up.  Gotta love that Frances is not scared at all.

Saturday the kids and I packed up and headed to Charlotte. 
I found the funniest note from Sterling.  He clearly needs money:)

We had a birthday party Saturday night for a family friend and her son who turned one!
This blouse is my new obsession.  It is so soft and I love the length because you can wear it with jeans or leggings.

We couldn't resist a cheesy pumpkin belly shot since my sister is pregnant.

All the kids.  Of course Frances insisted on showing off her belly. Sterling is holding James the birthday boy.

Sunday my mom and I took the kids to Disney on Ice.  They were in heaven and loved every minute especially the long Frozen part.

I wish Frances Moon's outfit came in my size.
Several people asked about her mocs and they are from the ETSY site Stella and Mi.
I really like them because they have a hard sole on the bottom.

Wore this off Shoulder top out to dinner Sunday night.  It is such a steal at only $38!! It comes in 3 other colors but I always love this olive green color.
I am wearing size medium.

Be Kind.

Weekend Style x 2

Rain Rain go away!  Charleston county schools were cancelled today because of all the rain and flooding here so the kids and I have had a lazy day at home.  Hoping it clears up at some point tomorrow.

I wanted to share two weekend looks with you!

This sweatshirt is hands down the softest thing ever.  It almost feels like you are wearing pj's but looks cute.  I wear mine with jeans and leggings. I am wearing a size XS.
I am wearing Spanx leggings here and they are hands down my favorite leggings.  They suck you in like no other.

This blouse is currently 40% off .  Actually everything at Loft is 40% off til tomorrow night at midnight.
Use code FALLYALL.  I am wearing a size small and the great thing is it is machine washable.  I have washed mine twice and comes out looking like new. I am wearing a size small

I am loving some of the Loft new arrivals and they are 40% off right now too.

Have a great weekend!

Tory Burch Fall Event Favorites!

I wanted to pop in let you know that the Tory Burch Fall Event started today.
If you have had your eye on any of her purses, shoes or clothing now is a great time to buy.  It is a tiered promo so the more you spend the more you save.  The sale runs thru Monday October 5 but I do find sizes go fast in popular items.

I rounded up some of my favorites from her site.
This is sitting in my cart, love it.

also comes in a red print.

I own this and LOVE it.  A great casual dress you can dress up or down.
Runs TTS I am wearing a small.

Totally obsessed with this long sleeve version as well!
This would be a great tee shirt to toss on with jeans.  Love the fall colors.

Adore this print and the style
I am loving so many of the new purses out this season.
It reminds me so much of Chanel.

Also love this Block T Large Tote
It comes in such great colors for Fall.

I own this in the tan color and love it.  It is nice because you can wear it as a shoulder bag or cross body.

I so want a pair of over the knee boots for fall.  I love this pair.

Scroll thru to see some other favorites!

Kiawah, The Andell Inn And Freshfields Village Recap

 We live only about 30 minutes from Kiawah yet I rarely venture out there unless we take our boat to the beaches out there.  So when Freshfields Village and The Andell Inn organized a blogger night and invited a few of us girls to explore and spend the night I was really excited.   Kiawah is just so serene and beautiful. 

The Andell Inn may just be one of the most gorgeous hotels ever.  They were just recently voted Top 10 Hotels of 2015 in Southern Living Magazine.    The minute I walked in I knew I would love it there.  
Interior perfection, right??
 The hotel had such a glamorous vibe.  I loved all the fur pillows.
I also thought the antler heads were very cool.

The outside is just as cute.  It sits over looking a lake and everything is just so green and lush.

My room or should I say suite was beautiful.  It would be a great place to bring your kids because there was so much room.  I really liked that it had a full size fridge and oven.   There is a grocery store within in walking distance so if you wanted to buy groceries and cook in your room you could.

Ready to head out for fun night shopping at FreshFields Village.
Of course we had to snap a picture on the porch swing.  The best part about some of these blogger events is a night with some of your favorite friends.

We started out at at Hedges an adorable restaurant at Freshfields.
They had some delicious nibbles and snacks for us.
Then it was off to walk around Freshfields and explore the shops.  There are so many cute shops at Freshfields but my favorite was The Resort Shop.
They carried so many of my favorite lines and even hosted a Mara Hoffman trunk show for us.  I loved this shift dress
 I ended up buying this dress that I shared Monday.  Ashley and I both bought this we loved it so much.  It does run on the large side so size down, I am wearing XS.

The Lily store was a popular stop for all the girls.  
I loved this giant painting behind the register.
I bought the cutest Giraffe outfit for Frances.  She wanted to put it on immediately when I got home.

Roberta Roller Rabbit just recently opened out at Freshfields, there is also a location here in Charleston on King Street.  I love all her patterns and tunics.  
All the girls that came out for the weekend.
Tara, Erin, Vendita, Annie, Ashley, Andrea, Chloe, Caycee, Me, Bethany, and Dannon.
 Picking out jammies to bring back to all our kids.
We had to sit down to look through all the cute patterns and sizes.  

I ended up buying the kids matching pjs at Roberta Roller Rabbit.  They are beyond adorable!!

We ended the night at Vincents Soda Shop.  It felt like you were back in time.  They had the most delicious sundaes.  I had the peanut butter blast and it was so tasty.

Enjoying our dessert.

We stopped by the Porch Bar at The Andell Inn for a nightcap.  I ordered the Skinny Dip and it was so good.  I loved the combination of tequila and cucumber and then the spice from the cayenne salt.
If you are out at Kiawah The Porch Bar is a great place to stop for a drink.  You can sit inside or outside on the deck which had killer views.

The next morning I was kid free so you would think I would sleep in but of course I woke up bright and early.  It was nice to sit and quietly drink my coffee with a gorgeous view.

It was a rainy day when we left and it would have been so nice to sit by this fireplace and read a good book but I was ready to see my babies.

Thank you to the Andell Inn and Freshfields Village for hosting us.  I had such a lovely time and will certainly be back again.  
 Next time I am bringing the kids and Matt because I know they would love it too!
I would like to note that our rooms were comped but I was not paid to write this post.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
