Remember when I went to Charleston? Me neither! Juuuuust kidding, Jacqui! You can read all about the trip, here. And now that the secret’s out, I can shout it from the rooftops: JACQUI [AND MATT] ARE HAVING A BABY! I accidentally outed her at Katie’s wedding which, is a funny story. Now we can laugh about it, right? Oh, and just outed her to the bridesmaids. I basically bullied her into telling me. Anyway. I’m going to be an aunt!

And this is what I wore on our second night out in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, when we went to La Farfalle and then on the “dark side of Charleston” tour. That was a hoot. Totally recommend. Be warned that it is R rated and all about bordellos (fancy brothels!) Oh and I may have already said this, but La Farfalle (discovered from the Gal Meets Glam Charleston guide) was dope. Delicious pasta that I would eat for every meal if I could, we sat under this giant beautiful tree in a courtyard, and I had something called a "white Negroni" which was awesome!

I think I actually bought this outfit for my birthday a few years ago, and it’s been a favorite ensemble since that I can’t believe has never made it on my blog (I also own this skirt in green!) I even wore this to work once, actually, a day that will live in infamy as “the day I wore a crop top to work.” The thing about this top though is that the crop is actually very subtle- paired with a high-waisted skirt- and there's just a peek-a-boo from the lace cut-outs. And that’s why I still have my job!

This look also features a failed attempt at curling my hair with a straightener that gave me a serious headache. I kept getting the straightener twisted and tangled in my hair and then having to rip it out. Beauty is pain. Can you guys do this??? I have tried SO many times. If you have a trick or tutorial, PLEASE help a blogger out!

Oh, and I got these heels in a swap at work! What luck! My co-worker described them as “too clean” for her taste, after buying them for a wedding. Ha.

Hope you're having a great week! Thanks Jacqui for snapping these pics for me!
