I can’t believe March is already here which means that Charleston Fashion Week is right around the corner. 5 nights of runway shows including emerging designers and local boutiques like Tres Carmen will be showing on the runway. Tres Carmen opened up last year in Freshfields Village and more shops and restaurants are slated to open very soon, which means more reason to take that day trip out to Kiawah. I love spending the afternoon at Freshfields Village in Kiawah to shop, eat, and just relax because it really is an escape from the hustle and bustle.
Every season Freshfields Village hosts a Sip & Stroll where every 3rd Thursday of the month you can visit participating stores for light snacks and sips while enjoying special events, sales, and promotions inside the shops. The next one is on March 16th from 4:00 to 7:00 pm and you can check out all of the participating stores and sales here.
This little outfit is from Tres Carmen in Freshfields Village and I’m obsessed with everything I’m wearing starting with the python purse and choker by Taxidermy. The new colors for spring are incredible, especially this sand color JW bag, it’s the new neutral.
Can we talk about these shoes? I’ve been wearing them almost everyday since I got them and I don’t want to take them off! They’re by Summit by White Mountain and are designed and made in Italy. But you don’t have to be scared that they’re crazy expensive, they’re only $148.95 from Nordstrom. I actually discovered them on Instagram and I’m so happy to know that they not only make beautiful shoes, but there are all about sustainability. They reduce their waste, carbon, and energy output while educating their employees on environmental protection and cleaner production initiatives.
My other obsession? My lash extensions by Becca at Simply Mitten Beauty Bar. I hate putting on eye makeup and the time it takes me in the morning. I’m the type of person that likes to get up and go. Now that I have these incredibly thick and long lashes it takes me 5 minutes to get ready. On most days I just wear my tinted Anti-Photo Aging Sunscreen by Germain Dermatology and I’m out the door! It’s incredible what longer lashes can do. I won’t miss the days of taking forever to get my cat-eye liner perfect, or curling my lashes, or layering on the mascara. Now I’m Fashion Week ready without the hassle of spending time on my makeup!
