How I Do It: Vacations are Necessary

I haven’t been away from all four of my children, for an entire weekend, ever.  While I missed them while I was gone, this weekend was exactly what the hubs and I needed.  Time for each other, catching up with old friends and celebrating a best friend’s marriage.  These kinds of weekends are hard to come by, but I’m so thankful when we get to enjoy them!

Thankfully, the ominous rain clouds held off for most of the weekend in Charleston.
J.Crew Scalloped Dress (on sale, and petite sizes also available HERE)
A great place for after-dinner cocktails.
Saw these in a window while shopping on King Street.  Wish little V could still fit into this size.
Little Boozers all over.
I finally had some time (since I was without kids) to stop into Lululemon and try on some pieces.  Needless to say, I can understand why it’s an addiction!  Everything fit so well!  The ladies at the Charleston location were super friendly and helpful with sizing and fit.
Saturday afternoon, we picked up some lunch to-go at Home Team BBQ on Sullivan’s Island.  Their wings are so good!  I also tried out this frozen concoction called The Game Changer.
 The wedding ceremony was outside.  How genius are these Heels Above caps, to keep heels from sinking into the grass?
 Mother of the Bride’s Stuart Weitzman Bowover Sparkle Pumps
This pretty much sums up how much fun they had at Gigi and Grandaddy’s house this past weekend.
Thank you so much Mama and Daddy (and Coco and Vinny) for taking on my job for a couple of days!  It ain’t easy!  But the kids had a blast the entire time…I don’t think they ever stopped!
And finally today, Fall arrived!
 Both of their outfits are from last Fall.  W’s is Kelly’s Kids.
The hubs and I had a conference at the girls’ school today, so I picked them up a little early.
Found these at Target today, and LOVE them!  Ignore the two reviews on their site, they fit me so well.  I normally wear an 8.5, and got an 8 in these.  Only $29.99.

Don’t forget, Plum Pretty Sugar is giving 10% of proceeds of their Pink Love Poppy print to Susan G. Komen, during the month of October, to support Breast Cancer awareness.  Enter LOVE10 in the notes, and your shipping will be refunded.

Hope y’all have a great start to your week!
Off to get my house back in order, after a weekend away!

  1. Looked like a fun weekend! The heel protectors are a riot. And jealous you got to Husk, a big reason this Minnesotan wants to go South…

  2. Jealous! Charleston is my favorite city ever. That scalloped dress is perfection on you! If I didn't comment on insta-I will now- You were stunning my dear!

    And I hit up Lulu without kids any chance I get…so much easier. You are looking fierce!

    1. I'm 5'6". I think they may work for you, since you're not that much shorter than me. If anything, you can always order them, and see what you think. Zappos always offers free shipping and free returns.
