Recap & OOTD's

Hey, all!

Sorry I've been somewhat MIA.  I've been on a little vacay this past week and a half with my boyfriend.

{this is said boyfriend, Henry}

We've been here since last Thursday...

{Edisto Island, SC}

Edisto is about an hour or so from Charleston, which just so happens to be my little slice of heaven.  Seriously, if I could move there tomorrow, I would have moved yesterday.
Lucky for me, last Monday was too windy to go out on the boat, so Henry and I went to do a little King St. shopping.  And for those who don't know, King St. is kiiind of like the Rodeo Dr. of Charleston.. high end with a little southern style.  We weren't in any rush, so it was nice being able to wonder in and out of different shops.

I did manage to find these beauties along the way!

J Crew Cece studded leather ballet flats
You can buy them here!

I've been looking for the perfect pair of nude flats for the longest time.  When I put these on and realized how comfortable they were I couldn't pass them up.

After shopping we grabbed sushi and drinks at O-Ku.  Megan and her fiancé love this place and always have great things to say about it.  I'm SO glad we went!  They have a wonderful Monday evening happy hour special that runs between 4 & 7 where you get 1/2 off their specialty cocktails, as well as 1/2 off a whole list of sushi rolls!

We started off with a personal favorite, edamame, and a few cocktails.  Henry tried the Lumber Jack, which had bourbon & maple syrup in it.  It sounded a little manly to me, so I stuck with basil gimlets after hearing good things.

{Ps.} Their cocktail list is really unique and full of ingredients you don't normally see, like lavender!  I may have to go out on a limb next trip and try something different.

As for our meal, we shared (and devoured) the Scallop roll, the Tuna Tataki roll and the White Dragon roll.  I think we decided that the Tuna Tataki was our favorite, but the White Dragon wasn't too far behind.  Everything was delicious and the atmosphere is fabulous!  It's safe to say we will definitely be going back!

Sorry Takosushi, you may have just been kicked to the curb.

I had to work Thursday, so my brother, Paul, drove down early on Wednesday to stay our last night with us.  He lives in Charleston and works alllll the time, so I really don't get to spend much time with him.  It was a special treat!  We got right on the boat and rode throughout the marsh to enjoy the chilly, but beautiful day.

It was actually Lilly's first boat trip!!  I think she handled it pretty well.  I'll have her converted into a beach bum by summer for sure.  We just have to figure out what to do about this hair situation.. it didn't quite handle the ocean breeze as I'd hoped.

 Once we were off the water, we headed straight to the porch for good music, steaks and wine.
A perfect ending to a perfectly relaxing vacation.
