Blue & White In The Historic District

Downtown Charleston is undoubtedly one of my favorite places in the world. Both historic and modernly charming, the impossibly perfect downtown streets are unlike any others. With a fierce commitment to preserving the historical integrity of the city, Charleston boasts row after row of carefully tended to homes that seem transport you to another time. As the wind rustles in the leaves of ancient oaks, you can almost see the city as it was when some of America's earliest settlers laid their first bricks. 

Jason and I both love historic architecture and love to spend our weekends strolling the streets and taking in all the inspiration our new city has to offer. For one of these afternoon strolls I paired my super comfortable navy blue chino shorts with a crisp white shirt that featured some unexpected styling for a fun twist. 


Juxtaposed against the classic design of the shorts, this top felt fresh instead of trendy while also elevating the basic shorts and shirt combo. 

For accessories, I chose a blue, white and gold beaded necklace, a bold statement bangle with navy accents and a simple clutch. I kept my footwear simple and comfortable with a pair of pointed toe flats perfect for navigating the cobblestone streets.
