Watermelons and Seersucker

We just got back from a week long trip to the South, which included visiting Charleston, Savannah, and Hilton Head. The trip was fantastic, with the exception of the humid weather, but this wasn't our first visit to this region of the country so we knew what we were getting into regarding the weather! These photos of me in my seersucker watermelon dress are the first of a few different outfits that I'll be sharing on the blog from our vacation. Because this dress is now on sale and selling out fast at Talbots, I figured I'd better post it ASAP!

I wore this dress out to dinner one night in Charleston. To me, the preppy vibe of the seersucker makes it the perfect thing to wear in the South. In fact, the waitress at our restaurant liked it and the way I matched my lipstick to the watermelons! It definitely looked like the type of dress that one might find in one of the preppy Southern boutiques that are all over King Street in Charleston.

The building where we took these pictures is a hotel called the Mills House, located in the downtown area of Charleston. Although we didn't stay there, I've always admired its light pink facade and the large ornate windows that adorn the buildings from all sides. I thought it would be the perfect Southern backdrop for my perfect Southern dress!
