Pantsuit Nation

Last Wednesday at Charleston Fashion Week was incredibly chilly with temps dipping into the low 50’s.  Thankfully I had this Rachel Roy jumpsuit and vintage marabou coat to keep me cozy.  There’s nothing that I love more than a jumpsuit, pantsuit, romper situation.  Your one and done.  This particular jumpsuit stands out with it’s double breasted tuxedo details.

How beautiful are these Lina Rosa earrings from Maris DeHart?  The meticulously hand beaded jewelry by local artisan Pepi Rodriguez takes hours to make and I love the modern playful design.


It was all about stacking silver rings to complete my look.  These from Naked Eyes Jewelry and Ash Hoffman are my everyday favorites.

I had to squeeze in a hair session at Dry Bar Charleston to get that slick top knot.  It’s always the best experience whenever I go into Dry Bar Charleston because I love their eclectic movie selection, phone charger station, and sweet and friendly stylists.

The highlight of my night?  Watching these incredibly talented young girls from Peace Love Hip Hop dance to a mash up of Janet Jackson songs on the runway.
