Charleston Style

I fully intended to take lots of pictures of people in true southern attire...however, on the one day that we spent in historic downtown my camera died. boo. oh well, I did manage to get a couple quick pictures:

This couple is oh-so-cute in matching pink! I'm not sure how the rest of the country does it, but pinks and pastels are worn quite frequently by southern men, and they make it look good! Notice the bright colors in the woman's dress - her Louis, her fun flowery shoes, her gorgeous smile - how put-together! For more on the southern dress, see the post just before this one.
When not wearing their seersuckers, southern gentlemen also enjoy a classy hat. Button down shirts and khakis are classic. Not only is this man dressed well, he was a true southern gentleman when I asked about taking his picture. He and his wife were polite and friendly, and I even had a conversation with them about what areas of the Carolinas are good for art (his wife is a painter).

Next time I make it to Charleston, I'll either pay more attention to having my batteries fully charged at all times, or just maybe, I'll have a spankin' new camera!

Everytime I'm in Charleston, I feel like it's the fashion capital of the Carolinas. But then again, I haven't covered all of the Carolinas in my travels!

Love your blog!!! It's now becoming a must-read for me to keep up with the latest trends!

Sweet! Glad to hear you like my blog! :)

Yea, Charleston is pretty darn close to fashion capital of the Carolinas...Charlotte's pretty close, but I'd say Charleston has more of the "southern style" while Charlotte is just well-dressed and pretty darn trendy!
