Polka Dot 4th

The sun is out and the polka dots are in!  Here is my little red, white, and blue dress I found at an department store in Bluffton.  Perfect for a classy dinner downtown or a romantic boat ride; I just feel like the perfect princess ready for the 4th.  This dress has an A-line, fit and flare to it.  Flirty and fun, it’s sure to set off some fireworks!  Be careful out there and enjoy some BBQ for me!

4th of July in the Lowcountry 

One of my favorite times in the Lowcountry is the 4th of July.  Hilton Head Island  comes alive with all kinds of festivities!  From day long music concerts and parades, to an evening filled with laughter and lights.  Fighting the traffic is well worth all the fuss.  One dish I love to cook during the 4th of July weekend is Lowcountry Boil.  It’s festive display of seafood, potatoes and corn will be a feast for hungry souls waiting for the fireworks.  It’s easy to cook, cooks in a jiff, and easy to clean up afterwards.  Here is a recipe that I found that gives the boil a different kick.  Hope your holiday will be fantastic!  Have fun!

How to Wear Black During The Summer in The Lowcountry 

On a day like to today, cloudy and wet, wearing black in the Lowcountry isn’t all that bad.  Especially when it’s a little black gauzy dress like the one I wore today.  The dress falls just above my knees exposing more leg, cooling the bottom half of me with the summer breeze.  The dress shape has a trapeze flow so air enters from the bottom of it.  I paired the dress with black open toed boots, just in case it started raining again.  You can get away with wearing booties on rainy days.  Make sure whatever black that you wear is of a light material and not too tight.  You want your body to be able to breathe in the summer air.

Flamingos And The Lowcountry

It was just another lazy walk down to the Old Town Bluffton Waterfront.  The warm air hypnotizing, I almost missed a glimpse of what appears to be a hot pink flamingo floating along the waves!  All of a sudden, In that moment, I felt the joy of summer curl my lips in laughter.  It was officially summer!  It was picture perfect inspiration of what the Flamingo means to the Southern Coastal Lowcountry; Unexpected charm full of adventure!  This looked like so much fun that I had to get a Flamingo Inflatable Raft too!

Morning Blues

For morning breakfast, I decided to throw on my favorite jean dress I picked up at Marshall’s.  I love the embroidery on the front of the dress, keeping with the tribal mood I am in.  It is light and comfortable.  The length of it is perfect as well, falling just above my knees giving it a flirty silhouette.  The chambray blue is a coastal favorite.
