Casual Fall Looks!

Posted on: September 8th, 2014 by admin

It’s time for fall! And while I wouldn’t quite break out the  sweaters just yet here’s a few easy ways to transition your look to fall, a warm Charleston fall.

CP Shades Regina

This navy, red, and white flannel style tunic is perfect for transitioning into the cooler fall weather without being too warm.   It is a versatile pick that would pair perfectly with dark jeans, leggings, or tights and some worn leather boots.  You have the option to roll the sleeves up and button them into place to reveal black and white gingham inner layer at any time so rest assured that you will always be comfortable in this cozy piece.

These Bedstu’s lace up boots are the perfect tall boot to pair with leggings and that CP Shades top!

Textured Leggings

A pair of textured pants is essential for every fall closet, but even better than that is a pair that allow for some stretch!  These dark grey, stretchy leggings will add some edge to your outfit as they mimic the emergence of the barren tree branches of autumn.  Throw on an oversized sweater or a loose fitting shirt and get ready to be chic and cozy all at once.

Reversible Layered Silk Crew

Indulge in the spices of fall by spicing up your outfit with this top!  A unique opening in the back of this shirt reveals the silk multicolored button up beneath the heather grey long sleeved shirt.  The extended length of this shirt makes it a perfect candidate to be worn with crop jeans.  Go one step further and add a long chain, beaded, or pendant necklace to complete your look.

Embroidered Pouch Peacoat

Turn heads in this beautiful navy blue peacoat.  Covered and lined in an intricate woven design this coat will stand out from all of the military jackets you will see.  It can be worn over a thin shirt and will coordinate with almost any color pant.

Wear this fun open front, stripped sweater over any solid fitted tee or tank top.  The length of this piece allows it to be paired with any style of pants so dress it up with some slacks or get comfy cozy on the couch with some cider.  Continue the fun of this piece by picking out a long textured or patterned necklace and get ready to be the fashionista the day.

When transitioning to fall you can’t forget your beauty regimen! Try Sheswai nude nails and Vapour’s lip lumping gloss in Bitten. Nude & Berry are sure fire ways to make any look perfect for fall!

Last but not least, change your scent! We all know nothing brings the feeling of fall on like a musky whiff of pine cones or the smell of a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. Try LURK organic fragrance from Ooh! Beautiful. They have a variety of deep scents made from luxurious oils.

Our beauty expert tries out REN!

Posted on: August 29th, 2014 by admin

Right after getting started with Ooh! Beautiful, I felt excitedly overwhelmed by the plethora of healthy skincare options that surrounded me.  I’m that cliche “kid in a candy shop” when it comes to cosmetics, skin and haircare — I just can’t help myself.  It’s in my genes … thanks, Mom!  At any rate, I was thrilled to have a chance to familiarize myself with a skincare line called REN.  I was especially thrilled because I’m always noticing beauty awards for their top-selling products featured in InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar, and Marie Claire, so naturally, this type of press peaked my interest!

The Girls of Summer by Nikki Hardin

The Girls of Summer

These sweet-tea days and full-moon nights are drawing to a close, but we have a few more weeks left to lie on a porch swing and read as if we were 12-year-old girls again. Remember when you immersed yourself in a book, lived in it, swam reluctantly out of its pages to make your bed or set the table? Those books took you to a foreign landscape or psychological territory you’d never experience otherwise. Here are some of my old favorite novels that might encourage lazy August to last a little longer. None of the books are new, but they’re all guaranteed to take you on a road trip of the mind. Pick one of these or one of your own and become one of the Girls of Summer again.

Pretty in Pink – A Summer Wedding

Posted on: July 29th, 2014 by admin

Ashley and Mark

CarolinaPhotosmith4WC-019
We could not have asked for a better couple to work along side as we planned their wedding day. This day was truly a great celebration of two people who love life and each other. This was profoundly displayed through touches of dasies, fun mixed seating and two people that were very deserving.
Using whimsical florals, succulents displayed in terrariums, and pops of colors we were able to achieve an elegant atmosphere while mixing in the personalities of Ashley, who works for Patagonia, and her down-to-earth new hubby.
Ashley and Mark are very outdoorsy and have a totally unique style, but when it came to wedding design the couple was wide open. We presented Ashley with an overall proposal together for her based off of her inspiration boards and the part that Ashley enjoyed most was the mix and match ceremony seating. The fun part of this was that we flipped the chairs to the reception afterwards to create an overall eclectic vibe.
Lowndes Grove is a very popular spot and for good reason! Overlooking the marshes of Charleston it has a sprawling landscape so it can accommodate a large guest count. It offers tons of options for ceremony sites, and the house is simply to die for!

Middleton Place is one of the most beautiful venues in Charleston, complete with a garden, waterfront views, a quaint little inn, and roaming peacocks. We were thrilled to work with Charleston Weddings Magazine and the ladies of Tusk Events.

Sperry has truly outdone themselves with this gorgeous teepee. the inside is just as beautiful as the outside and we filled with florals from Out of the Garden.

The seamless white canvas of the teepee proves to be the perfect backdrop for fun jewel tones and gold accents that filled the space.

GLUE STICK GIRLS – Creating a Visual Journal by Nikki Hardin

Posted on: July 11th, 2014 by admin

GLUE STICK GIRLS

If you travel this summer, smart phones make it easy to document every cathedral, museum, scenic outlook, beach, roller coaster and meal along the way. I have so many photos from various trips I’ve taken over the years that I recently went through my computer and deleted the bad, the mediocre and the duplicates. After all, how many shots of a plane wing do I really need?
