We leave for Charleston in a WEEK!
So far my list of places to eat & drink is long… and growing. Poogan’s Porch, Cru Cafe, The Black Tap, Fig, Collective Coffee & more…. any I’m missing?
Today, the weather in Nashville got HOT all of a sudden. I’m definitely not complaining, I was just surprised. Mid 60’s after weather below freezing for weeks. It made me think – will it be warm in Charleston?
Turns out it will be pretty mild while we’re there. Days in the 50’s and nights in the high 30’s. It’s making me believe I don’t need to pack a real coat… but I’m probably just lying to myself 🙂
So here’s the packing list so far.
- The long black maxi. The one I own is actually a convertible dress that can be worn 5 ways. Full disclosure, I only wear it 2 ways because I don’t feel confident it looks right as a skirt on me, but that’s ok – it’s still been a great piece. It’s really thick cotton so it regulates temperature well. It’s also great because the material is nice enough for dinner, but casual enough for the beach.
- Lightweight tops. I’m planning to bring two light weight tops that can be worn together as layers or separately for different looks.
- Chunky cardigan. With sunny days in the 50’s, I’m unlikely to need a full coat during the day. However, i’m sure there will be shade at times and cold restaurants as always, so a cozy knit is just the trick.
- Blazer. Instantly dresses up any part of this mix. Even the striped top with jeans and heels will look polished with a blazer. I know southern folk can be proper, so I don’t want to be sloppy.
