If you have been following me on Instagram, you’ll have seen I was in Charleston this week. We were visiting our friends, one of whom is going to be our wedding officiant. I can’t believe we’re only twenty eight days away now! Charleston is one of our favorite places and we’ve been really looking forward to this trip for a long time. We got to do so many of our favorite things but I still wish we had more time. A few readers asked me for some shopping and food recommendations so let me quickly mention a few of our favorites.

I am in complete autumn wardrobe mode already. It was 60 degrees this morning, which feels like the arctic tundra compared to our summer. I have been dreaming about cold weather outfits for weeks, so much so that I have already purchased my winter coat for the year. When I saw this Mara Hoffman coat on Shopbop I knew it would be selling out quickly so I made my move. I am very happy to make a purchase from a brand that advocates and practices ethical production and environmental sustainability in their clothes. You can listen to this great podcast talking with Mara about the evolution of her production practices. These past few weeks of natural disasters have me terrified about climate change and thinking about the changes I can make to be a more conscious consumer. Mara Hoffman is setting an amazing example for other brands right now, I hope we see more brands take a cue from her to integrate more sustainable practices in the near future.

I have had this Rugby Ralph Lauren jacket for over ten years…it always reminds me of the early days of Sea of Shoes. I wore it over the weekend and it reminded me how much I love my old Rugby. I so wish Rugby was still around, they did so much great stuff! Long term readers will know how obsessed I am. I have started buying a lot of Rugby from eBay over the last few years to fill the Rugby void in my life. I love a kooky prep look, I always have fun styling with it. This look I’m wearing here definitely fits that vibe.

Wearing Ruby Ralph Lauren jacket with vintage silk shirt, Express grey skinny jeans, Balenciaga city bag, and Nine West snap button ankle boots.

I also had someone ask about the makeup look I am wearing here, which I will tell you. I am wearing the Charlotte Tilbury Rock Chick palette on my eyes, ItCosmetics CC cream mixed with Etude House Cotton Fit BB cream, Milani blush in Luminoso, and Hourglass Nude Lip Stylo in No1.
