Black on Black on Black…

Black on Black on Black…classic!   A silk shirt+skinny pants+heels+lots o’ jewels pretty much sums me up in the fall and winter months when I am trying to throw something together that is comfortable and acceptable for work.  My two favorites from this outfit are the James Jeans Twiggy Legging in flat black and my Christina Jervey Goddess Cuff.

Pitt Street in the OV provided the perfect setting for Kim and I to snap these pics.  One of the many streets in our beautiful city that has remained for the most part untouched!!  Cozy up to the counter at the Pitt Street Pharmacy for the best grilled cheese ever and a real cherry coke.   Stop in Out of Hand for a unique retail experience then lunch at The Old Village Post House.  Views of the Harbor are a stone’s throw away…perfection!

Get outside!  It’s gorgeous out there!!!  XO, Catherine

Rainy Days…

Don’t always have to be gloomy!  With the help of my amazing photog Kim and her son James my grey Saturday turned into the highlight of my weekend.

It is seriously the softest tee ever.  I am definitely going to go back and get the similar long sleeve color blocked version and this ador sweatshirt.

Little Bit o’ This and a Little Bit o’ That…

Just a bunch going on this week!!  This was originally going to be a Dressing Room Diaries post, but as I edited my selfies…I realized that I have a lot to learn about that particular art!  With that said…this will be a mish-mosh of my week!

Madewell jeans

Madewell is having an end of season sale.  Dresses, tees, shoes, bags, and my favorite JEANS are on sale now online.  I got these Skinny Skinny Crop Jeans in Mist, these White Skinny Skinny Jeans and Indigo Linen Embroidery Tank on major sale.  Score!!!

Charleston Revisions chande

This finally happened!  After an exhaustive search to replace the uber dated chandelier in my kitchen-I found a winner!  This beauty from Charleston Revisions is installed and once I get the right bulbs will be good to go!  Thank you so much to Laurie and Geneva for all of your help!  **Visit Charleston Revisions in Mt Pleasant at 1212 Fairmont Avenue and West Ashley at 14 Windermere Boulevard.
