Hello from Charleston, SC! As y'all may know from Instagram, we're here for a few days soaking up the warm weather and Southern hospitality. I can't wait to share our itinerary and favorite spots with you guys in an upcoming post. Thank you to those who left recommendations in the comments of this IG - worth taking a peek at if you're planning a visit!

This dress is my first JOA piece after seeing so many of their cute items on friends. I bought mine from Revolve but Shopbop has a few more sizes left. It's a high-waisted cut and looks mini on the model, which translates into a nice, normal fit on shorter ladies. For walking around I switched into these AT low sandals, and layered on a denim jacket in case it cooled.

The sleeves have elastic so you can wear both of them off-shoulder, on the shoulder like a scoop neckline, or asymmetrically. It's fully lined in cotton and the outer material is a slightly textured woven fabric. The waistband is also elastic and stretchy, so can accommodate a slight range of sizes.

These photos were taken at the Zero George boutique hotel, which hosted us for the first part of our stay. The property is beyond charming and filled with history, with several original architectural and design elements from the early 1800's. Their rooms are decorated in different themes - we got one in the "French romantic" style, with a trellis printed headboard, mirrored dressers, marble bathroom, and pink gingham chairs after my own heart. The below pic of one corner doesn't do the room justice.

We loved snacking or enjoying breakfast while catching a breeze on the piazzas (porches). They have cute wooden trays for taking your food to any of these areas, or to your room or the courtyard. PS - I heard this bell-sleeved Eliza J lace dress (see my review) will be re-stocked in petites soon.

  20. Lovely dress. Beautiful bag!

    Out of curiosity - I am honestly curious (and not judging :) )
    Do you get uncomfortable wearing such a high heel (4 inches!)? How long are you able to comfortably work around/sight-see in a heel?

    I am asking because I can barely manage a 2 inch heel and still get sore back and my legs are uncomfortable at the end of the day + long term impact of high heels.

    1. Hi - I love flats and wear low shoes all the time during the day, usually swapping into higher for dinner or events if we're going to take a a cab or uber. As mentioned in the post above, for walking around I switched into the low sandals from Ann Taylor. These heels pictured are surprisingly comfortable though and I could walk much further in them than regular stilettos - when shopping higher heels, I suggest looking for a small platform in the front and a thicker block heel, which helps a lot.

  24. What a darling trip!

    Speaking of espadrilles, could you give an update on how the Soludos feel now that you've had them for a bit? In your original post you'd mentioned the back of the heel was rubbing.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi! The Soludos definitely need breaking in on me due to the back, but I was still able to walk quite a bit in them. I think it really depends on how your foot fits and whether it's snugly against the back or if there's some room (not sure which is better), because on me the size 5's have just a little room which might generate more friction. My friend got them as well the same time as me and walked over a mile in them comfortably the first day.

    1. Thank you! We strolled past a big market but I don't think it was the farmer's market which opens in April (sad!).
