White on white

I still have a ton of pictures left from Europe, but I can't resist sharing some pictures from my adventures yesterday!  So while I'll be back to sharing photos from my trip tomorrow, today I'm going to stay a little closer to home.  Even though I've lived on Hilton Head Island for a year now, I hadn't taken advantage of Historic Bluffton, which is only a quick drive away.  My good friend Rachel and I decided to play tourists for the day.  We went to local favorite The Cottage for afternoon tea and were blown away.  The amount of delicious tea sandwiches, scones, and treats was insane!  One of the cutest things about The Cottage though is that it's completely pet-friendly and even has a "Canine Cuisine" menu.

Next up was a quick walk down Calhoun Street to the famous Church of the Cross, which sits on the May River.  It's such a beautiful church with a unique architecture we don't often see here in the South.  The church is a survivor too and is one of the few remaining structures that were spared when Bluffton was burned down during the Civil War.  I can't believe that after living here for a year, I only just got around to seeing such a beautiful piece of American history.

With sunny skies and a high of 85, it was the perfect day to wear a white and bright outfit.  I also got the change to finally complete my Kendra Scott jewelry collection (at least for now) and wear it all together.  I'm a huge fan of Kendra Scott's designs.  Although well made, none of her pieces are too heavy and there's such a wide range of colors and customizable options.

This was also my first time wearing a true crop top in a while (I have more thoughts on crop tops than any sane person should ever have.)... I was a little nervous!  I decided to take a chance on this one because it was so inexpensive and comfortable.  In the end, I think it worked out pretty well and will be looking for ways to incorporate it in the future.

Rounding out the outfit are my new favorite white jeans EVER.  My closest Nordstrom rack might be three hours away, but getting these Paige Denim jeans for 60% off was so so so worth it.  They have the perfect amount of stretch and aren't translucent at all.  I can't wait to make these a more regular part of my wardrobe, at least until Labor Day.

How about that view?  A local store owner told us that she loves to sit at the end of the pier with appetizers and a bottle of wine.  She was a pretty cool lady and may have inspired me to try it out as well!
