Fall Freshness


For my second collaboration with The Scout Guide Charleston I’m featuring some fall fashion that can be found in Kiawah’s premiere shopping destination – The Freshfields Village. Packed with a good mix of locally owned boutiques and larger retailers, this shopping village is set in the most relaxing, stress-free environment.  With pristine beaches just around the corner, it’s easy to make a day out of swimming in the ocean, shopping, and dining.


For my Freshfields shoot I had the pleasure of working with Chelsea Hodges at Urban Nirvana to help get me ready.  Having a professional hair and makeup artist is always a luxury I can appreciate.


Lounging at the Andell Inn was the ideal setting for my favorite caftan from Roberta Roller Rabbit.   This boutique is new to Freshfields, but a familiar shopping stop in resort towns such as The Hamptons, Palm Beach,  Punta Del Este in Uruguay, and of course King Street in Charleston.  This bright and cheerful store packs a punch with color and patterns encompassing textiles, clothing, accessories, and bedding.  Roberta Freyman, the designer and founder of Roberta Roller Rabbit, travels the globe to find the perfect products to take home to her boutiques.

For a dressier look, I featured this LBD with a fun fringe detail from The Resort Shop and Alexis Bittar accessories from Holly & Brooks.  They’re both locally owned boutiques that compliment each other very well. The Resort Shop has always been a fixture at The Freshfields Village and recently opened up their second location in The Shops at Belmond Charleston Place.  Don’t  be fooled by their name, their clothing and accessories are more than just resort wear.  Stocking favorite labels such as Mara Hoffman, Ella Moss, Eileen Fisher, and Trina Turk, the variety of styles will take you well into the fall and winter months.
