Charleston SC Travel Diary - Part 2

     Last week I shared my own Travel Diary from my recent Charleston trip! Today I'm turning things over to my friend Priyanka, who was my travel companion. Since I was in Charleston for a friend's wedding, those festivities kept me pretty busy and I didn't get to explore as much as Priyanka did. Since she got to see more of Charleston than I did on this trip, I wanted her to be able to share her additional travel recommendations with y'all! In addition to some of the more popular touristy spots, Priyanka also discovered a lot that was off the beaten path. She kindly wrote up this awesome recap and also sent over some photos she took- so I'm sharing that as the second part of my Charleston Travel Diary today!

FALL HAUL: Amazon + J. Crew Factory Try-On.

     Mondays are better with a little virtual shopping, right? The number one thing that I was requested to do more of on my blog from my last reader survey was to do more try-on hauls! To be perfectly honest- I don't always love watching when other bloggers share these on their Instagram Stories. I'd personally rather read a blog post seeing photos of an outfit all styled rather than dressing room like videos of it. That's just me though! 😊Clearly y'all really do enjoy these. I'll never be the type of blogger who shares them weekly (or goodness forbid daily haha!), but my goal is to do some every couple months for y'all. 

     I've recently done a good bit of shopping at Amazon and J. Crew Factory (with one item from Walmart as well), so I wanted to share everything for y'all for easy fall shopping! I tried to make sure most of my purchases over the last month were versatile picks that could be styled many different ways for fall and winter. I think I did pretty well, and I think y'all will like these items too! 

    My sizing info: I am a size 4/6 (depends on clothing brand), 28 in jeans, and my height is 5'7. I normally wear a 9 in women's shoes but both pairs featured today I went down to an 8.5
