Today, I'm giving you a continued tour of Charleston, SC. It’s always fun to play tourist, especially in a city full of history like Charleston.
An easy way to learn the local folklore is with a guided tour. A horse-drawn carriage beats the heat if you’re not up to a walking or ghost tour that’s in abundance in Charleston. And don’t worry about the horses.
These magnificent creatures are well cared for. As a matter of fact, the Belgian and Percheron draft horses live on a 65-acre farm, eat 40,000 calories per day, and are provided a daily dose of Guinness beer!
So let's get started!
Today, I'm giving you a continued tour of my trip to Charleston with a focus on Boone Hall & Plantation
I'm also showing you one of my dinner outfits featuring a dress from J.Crew

June is hot and hotter in Charleston. Every afternoon we would come back to the condo after a day of touring or shopping to take a shower and short nap before we headed out to dinner.
That night we went to Hyman’s I wore a simple white denim dress from J.Crew. I ordered an 8 Tall to give me a bit more length but regular, petite, and tall are available. This dress also comes in linen.
Camel and white is a classic color combo that’s perfect any time of year but especially on a hot summer day. Out came a tan handbag and sandals (old, similar here and here) and a few accessories that reinforced the color scheme.
Boone Hall and Plantation was founded in 1681 when Englishman Major John Boone came to Charleston. In 1743 his son planted Oak trees arranging them in two evenly spaced rows. Today, the majestic trees meet overhead and form a natural corridor that’s spectacular.
