Spring In My Step

Hi everyone! Yesterday my mom and I went to the Botanical Gardens, it was the perfect way to spend our Sunday. It's a little slice of spring amongst the cold, I loved seeing and smelling so many flowers.  I wish the camera captured scent so you could smell how amazing the flowers were! I can't wait until the blooms start popping up outside. I wore my new favorite sneakers from Nordstrom! Rifle Paper Co. collaborated with Keds to make the perfect shoes to put a spring in your step. Shop my Keds and the rest of this outfit at the end of this post!

Happy Spring!

The Restoration

Hi everyone! If you follow me on Instagram (@belleoftheball45) I'm sure you saw me raving about my stay at The Restoration in Charleston. Our stay was perfect. There are so many amazing things about The Restoration. I was blown away by the gorgeous exterior of the hotel, and our room was equally beautiful. 

Not only does The Restoration have an amazing restaurant The Watch, but they also had an adorable coffee bar, and breakfast baskets delivered to the room each morning. The first night of our stay my mom and I had dinner at The Watch, we couldn't resist the burger and truffle fry duo (delicious)! We loved being able to have breakfast from the comfort of our room, and the breakfast basket included everything we needed. Also each night there were warm cookies waiting downstairs at 8- amazing! Before heading out I grabbed coffee at The Rise with fellow blogger @hellodarling_sarah. It is such an adorable coffee bar, with great food, and I loved being able to finally meet Sarah in person. One of my favorite amenities offered at The Restoration is the classic car rentals! They have beautiful vintage cars that can be rented- I can't think of a more perfect way to adventure throughout Charleston! We loved the classic Mercedes. Richard the concierge was also so helpful and knew everything their is to know about Charleston. He gave us amazing recommendations on where to eat, things to do, and anything else we needed. 

My little cousin Elleri lives in Mount Pleasant so we had her stay with us one night! We both loved hanging at the rooftop pool in our matching Lilly suits! Another one of my favorite parts about  The Restoration was the location. Being just steps away from King Street, we were so close to all of the shopping, restaurants, and the charming streets of Charleston. 

Heres some photos from my stay- enjoy!


Vineyard Vines being right across from The Restoration was amazing!


Thank you so much for a lovely stay @therestorationhotel!

Swinging into Spring

Hi everyone! Can you believe it's already Spring! I'm so excited for the snow to melt soon and for flowers to start blooming. Before flying out of Charleston on my spring break trip, we stopped in Beaufort, SC. It was such a charming little town and I'm so excited we had time to stop. We grabbed a bite to eat at  Lowcountry Produce, it was adorable and the food was great. Then we just walked around and took in all of the flowers and charm before heading back to the snow. Shop my look at the end of this post. 

Happy Spring! Enjoy!

Had to grab a cookie to-go!

Trotting Down Tradd Street

Hi everyone! The first day of my Spring Break trip to South Carolina I got right off my flight and headed to  The Skinny Dip Charleston Edition for an event with  Carolina Clothing Company. The event was such a success and I loved seeing the store for the first time. After the event we did a fun shoot around Charleston. My friends  Abby and  Cameron go to college in Charleston and I was so happy to have them come along with us!  Cameron took all of the photos- he's such an amazing photographer!  Carolina Clothing Company just came out with their new spring collection and I'm in love with every piece! I can't wait until it starts warming up in Buffalo (if the snow ever melts), so I can start wearing all of the new items! You can use code 'BELLE10' for 10% off your  Carolina Clothing Company purchase!


@AbigailAOgden  is THE CUTEST ever!

Thanks so much  @CameronWilder for the photos!
