A fun, fall weekend activity in Charleston, SC consists of oyster shuckin’, live music and romantic views. While visiting my mom this past weekend, I experienced my first ever Oyster Roast, and what an amazing experience it was! Unlimited, steamy oysters, which you shuck yourself, gloves and shucking picks are provided along with different toppings. My favorite is a few dashes of hot sauce on a saltine cracker — Delish!
When I’m visiting my mom down south, it’s always tough to determine how to dress, especially because the weather varies so much from in New York! This weekend was actually pretty chilly, highs in the low 60’s.
One of my favorite pieces I bought this summer during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, was this BLANKNYC faux leather moto jacket. Every time I wear this jacket, I get so many compliments because the color is so striking and different from the average black leather jacket. It always adds a pop of color when your wearing neutral colored pieces.
Jacket: BLANKNYC Faux Leather Moto Jacket in Dark Green
Sweater: H&M Open Shoulder Top
Booties: Steve Madden Melina Bootie
Denim: old; similar: Lulu’s Cool Black Jeans, Topshop Moto Leigh Ripped Jeans, Urban Outfitters BDG Twig Ripped Skinny Jean
Sunnies: Dolce & Gabbana
A special thanks to my very special friend, Molly Ann Jones, for the photography skills. 🙂

I found the most beautiful, feminine top perfect for transitioning from summer to fall. It showcases my favorite summer trends: off the shoulder and pale blue, while also being long sleeved, and having a feminine floral print, making it an all time favorite!
I scored this gorgeous top at a trendy boutique in Charleston, SC over Labor Day weekend. I love how well it pairs with this felt floppy hat and semi-destroyed flared jeans (which I can’t believe are back in style; my inner 16 year old is loving this)!! I’ve included similar finds of the top here, here and here. This top from the boutique, is nowhere to be found online, sorry readers! The brand is L’atiste by Amy, if you’re able to find it online, please let me know!! Also, here is almost an identical print in an open back, flowy maxi dress and it’s absolutely gorgeous!!
Hat: Similar; 1. here (under $15!), 2. here, 3. here (splurge)

Booties: Steve Madden Melena (Under $60!)

This fall I am SO loving this olive green color for dresses, vests, army jackets, sweaters — it’s so in!
I found this adorable BP woven shirt dress, which is a great transition piece from summer to fall, during the much anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I’m so excited to finally make it’s long over due debut on crème! With the weather getting a little cooler this weekend, I would pair this with some tan booties and a leather jacket; perfect solution from day to night dress.
I paired this little number with Steve Madden Lace Up Nude Suede Sandals Heels, which are surprisingly very comfy and I walked all around Soho for this shoot (also shot by photographer and friend, Jason Mize).
