GUEST POST: THE VENDUE // CHARLESTON, SC

Happy Thursday, everyone! Annie is here to kick off the start of our Weekend in the City series, and she's got a great post for you on where to get drinks while in Charleston! Make sure to check out my Nashville pick over on her blog!





Hi everyone! To kick off our weekend in the city collaboration, Rachel and I decided to feature our favorite spots to grab a drink in town. I loooove having people visit me in Charleston, and one of my favorite things to do is take them to get drinks somewhere fun. There are lots of fun options, but if dinner is after sunset, The Rooftop at the Vendue is my favorite spot! It boasts beautiful views of East Bay, which hosts some of the best restaurants in Charleston. You can also see the water, which isn’t the case for some of the other rooftops in town. My favorite drink to order: The Skinny which is Tito’s, St. Germain, pomegranate purée, and grapefruit juice - light and refreshing! Another option for the margarita lovers (or Instagram-seekers) is the Hot Lolita which is habanero-infused Don Julio Blanco, Cointreu, and cactus pear purée - it’s the hot pink beauty from my Instagram and above!


We’re in the south, so even in October and November, I look for light layers in dark, fall colors. My go-to uniform is my pair of trouser jeans (above), my Tibi black racerback tank (above), a light blazer (similar above), black wedges (booties above), gold accessories (Charleston Rice Beads, of course), and a pop of color in a clutch (Clare V. foldover above). Really, I wear this outfit too often, but I they are some of my favorite pieces, and those are the things that make you feel the most confident, you know?!

If you ever make your way to Charleston - which you should - put rooftop drinks on the to-do list (and give me a call, too)!!

I LOVE Charleston!! We vacation on HHI every year so we always take a day trip up to Charleston. I's oozing with charm and southern hospitality! As a New Yorker, it's so different and that's what I really appreciate about it. I can totally relate on the basic and classic going out ensemble. I prefer to keep my look simple and paired down. You can never go wrong with a great pair of jeans and a blazer!

I'd have to try the pink drink just because it looks so festive! Love the outfit you put together, especially the pop of color with the blue clutch!

I have been to Charleston countless time as I live not too far in Atlanta, and I fall more in love every time I visit. Thanks for the cocktail inspiration, "The Skinny" sounds delicious. Happy Friday!

Her instagram makes me want to go to Charleston just about every day. And I can say that it is as good as it looks in pictures!
