Pretty Pleats in Colorful Charleston

These pictures are seriously making me miss the gorgeous city of Charleston! In case you missed it over on Instagram, I spent last weekend in this stunning city with my best blogger friends Sara & Cortney. We were working on some fun things with Toyota [more on that soon!] & got to explore this charming place! Seriously though, this was my first time to Charleston & it really IS this bright and pretty in real life. Every corner you turn has a pastel colored house, draping greenery and colorful flowers! It’s definitely a bloggers dream! 😉 ha!

I knew this pleated dress would fit in amongst the colors beautifully! It’s the perfect twirl dress and I love how it moves as you walk. Ringing in just under $40, this is such a great piece to add to your closet! I also layered it with a jean jacket which is an easy way to take your favorite Summer dresses into early Fall. And this pom clutchwhich you can get for only $30 with code ‘KELSSLAYT’ – brought all the bright colors together. I honestly can’t say enough things about how captivating Charleston is!

One of the things that really made this dress pop is my spray tan! lol This was only my 3rd time in my whole life to get one & it was amazing. If you are in the D.C. area- you’ve got to try Golden Glo! She came to my house [makes it SO easy!] and the spray tan machine was heated- which meant I wasn’t shivering the whole time like I have before. And 1st time clients get their spray tan for only $30! Such a good deal- especially with the convenience of it being at your house.

Well I am so excited that it’s finally Friday! Looking forward to spending some QT with my boys this weekend. Speaking of which– did you catch this post from earlier this week? Still swooning over those pictures!  xox babes!
