French Quarter Florals

0B0A8682

I’m so proud to represent Charleston today for the #LTKtakeovertuesday on the Like To Know It Instagram.  It’s a shopping app that shows you where to buy my looks on my Instagram feed.  Every Tuesday Like To Know It collaborates with local bloggers in their city to feature where they like to shop, eat, and tour around.  I’ll be sharing some of my favorite places along with fellow bloggers Chassity of Look Linger Love and Dannon of Like the Yogurt so tune into @LiketoKnow.it today!

I love playing tourist in my own town and The French Quarter is quintessential Charleston.  In the center of it all is The Dock Street Theatre, which is the oldest theatre in America proving that the arts have been deep rooted in Charleston from an early start.  Almost every building is dotted with flower boxes in the window and each building is painted a different color giving the neighborhood an extra dose of charm and romance.

It’s too hard to narrow down my favorite places to shop because Charleston is bountiful when it comes to local boutiques and designers.  Today I’m featuring a python Taxidermy clutch which is designed by local Amy Wachter Driggers.  Her lust-worthy bags have taken the city by storm and she has quickly developed a cult following. The cuff and necklace are by Hyla Dewitt a former Charleston dweller, and are carried at the new lifestyle boutique Open Door Shop.  This new store proves that some of the best shopping can be found off the beaten track.

Brunch Heaven at Indaco

LWP-64 (1) LWP-81 (2)

Brunch is probably one of my favorite meals to dine out, and I’m sure my husband and kids can vouch for that too.   Last Sunday I had the pleasure of experiencing the brunch at Indaco on Upper King.  Offering both breakfast and lunch dishes it was so hard to decide, so we pretty much ordered half of the menu and ravished everything in site.

LWP-97 LWP-108

We started out with my 2 favorite dishes – the Milk and Honey and Patatas Bravas.  The Milk and Honey which consists of ricotta, granola, pears, and honey was out of this world!  The Patatas Bravas was exactly how I remembered them it Spain, but with a twist.  The fried egg on top just oozed decadence. For people who like to experience both sweet and savory dishes for brunch, this was the perfect combination.

LWP-132 LWP-143 LWP-160

If you love Indaco’s mouthwatering pizzas like I do, then your in for a treat with The Breakfast Pie.  It’s pretty much the Margherita but with pancetta and an egg on top. It was baked HEAVEN!

LWP-178 LWP-20 (1) LWP-6 (1) LWP-195

We had to sample the Nutella Pizza with bananas, pecans and powdered sugar sprinkled on top.  It was a hit with the kids and adults.

LWP-2-2

I’m not a big meat eater but my husband Gustavo had to try the Chorizo and the Eggs Al Forno, which he loved.  When you top anything with an egg, it takes it to the next level.

LWP-210

Our experience was 5 stars – from the service, to the presentation, to the explosions of tastes.  If your looking to have brunch downtown that isn’t your usual Lowcountry fare, Indaco is the spot.  Experimenting with ingredients is what they do best and it shows.  Another added plus is that it’s kid friendly, which is always a deal breaker for me.  I can’t wait to go back again to sample more dishes, but knowing me I’ll probably order the same thing.
