A Weekend in Charlotte

While Lar started her search for her future home in Scotland last week, I went off gallivanting to Charlotte, North Carolina. The trip was for work, but I was able to convince Troy to come with me so we could explore the city together.

Outfit details: Lulu’s dress, Kate Spade bag and American Eagle boots.

I have a tendency to pack a lot of black clothes for conferences, but check out my hotel closet for the weekend – only one black item:

A big reason for all this color? Lar left many so many of her clothes that I can now go a whole day without wearing black (accessories not included).

Obviously this day wasn’t one of those non-black days:

Outfit details: Sweater from Lar, FCUK for Sears skirt, American Eagel boots, Maison Scotch necklace (came with a dress).

I wore heels the whole weekend while walking around the city. It wasn’t nearly as painful as it sounds. I found these American Eagle boots online and they’re the perfect height for walking. I know that sounds crazy, but I have yet to find a pair of ballet flats that are comfortable.

Unfortunately I didn’t discover any hidden boutiques in downtown Charlotte, but that probably has more to do with the fact that I was working most of the time and only there for two full days. I’d love to go back and explore more. Troy and I had a great meal at Enso the first night we were there and found some decent beers at Growlers Pourhouse in NoDa.

Have you guys ever been to Charlotte? Any favorite spots?

A Lar Edit (10:00 pm British Standard Time):
I can’t believe I almost forgot! Do you remember that wedding inspiration shoot I styled for photographer Aharon Hill this past July? Well it also made it onto Style Me Pretty – the Georgia edition! Woohoo! Click here to see more photos.

  1. Kitcath, you look awesome! Loves all the color (and I can really only take credit for half of that)! I’ve already forgotten that you can wear sleeveless things outdoors in other parts of the world during this time of the year!
    Misssss youuuu!!!!

    1. AE has a couple of great boots this season – a lot of them come in brown. And it’s so much more affordable than most stores.

    1. Wish I had asked this question BEFORE I left – duh. Customshop is going at the top of my list next time I’m in Charlotte?

  2. I just happen to live in Charlotte! However, I’ve only been here about 2 months and haven’t done nearly enough exploring. I’ll have to try Mert’s, Enso, and Customshop.
