Charming Charleston

2/21/2014
At the end of January we took a trip up to Charleston, SC for a relaxing birthday weekend. We strolled Battery Park, and admired all of the gorgeous homes and historic buildings. The architecture and southern trees of downtown stole my heart. White washed brick buildings, black shutters, green hedges and ivy, pastel flowers, brick walkways, white picket fences, and pets lounging in the front lawn - heavenly combinations. Tanner had his realtor app open on his phone our whole walk and every time we passed a home for sale we would look at the interior photos. What did we do before iPhones?

It was the perfect atmosphere and backdrop for Coco to model her new collar and lead from WOOF New York. If you haven't heard of them, you are missing out! They are the hot new brand to watch for in 2014. Their classic high quality leather is paired perfectly with brass metal finishes – another heavenly combination. Seriously, the brass is gorgeous. Coco wore her gold Park Avenue set as she walked the beautiful streets of Charleston, and she fit right in with all of the prettiness happening there. 

For more info on WOOF, check out our full review with lots of up close prettiness on Pretty Fluffy.

Charleston seemed to be very pet friendly in the downtown area. We met several new furry friends, one in particular captured Bean's attention. They got chummy right away, even though it appears that she is looking at him uneasily. She does that with all dogs - a little 12 lb Bean can't be too careful! I wish I could remember his name. I want to say it was an irish name like Hannigan or Finnigan. It was something charming either way. He was quite handsome, and photogenic.

Here are some more favorite photos from our trip, enjoy!


Above is my favorite house in all of Charleston, nestled back away from the street. Completely crushing on it. It's so welcoming and familiar. Want to hear something weird? I realized after our trip that I had in fact 'liked' this same house on pinterest a long time ago. Coincidence? Maybe. Twilight zone, do do do do do do do do.

The hubs and Bean, taking a break from our walk. Probably the prettiest stoop ever.

She was fascinated with the cannons! She hopped right up like she was ready for battle. Look out world!

Here are a few snapshots from my phone when I didn't feel like lugging my camera around. The first two photos were from our brunch at Poogan's Porch. Probably the best brunch of my life. The restaurant was named in honor of Poogan, the dog that frequented the porch and visited often. He chilled on the porch daily and was the best friend of neighborhood until he passed in 1979. It was an adorable restaurant. Highly recommend for brunch lovers.

Happy Weekend friends!

  1. Lovely photos (as always!) Sarah. Where are Coco's collar, tag and leash from? I love the gold (I'm so used to seeing silver, it makes a nice change). She looks super pretty.

  2. My sister lives in Charleston and we were down for a visit this past Thanksgiving with the dogs - such a lovely place and very dog friendly in deed! I loved loved loved the ivy that was all over the stoops downtown. They were the perfect spot for photos, not to mention the pet friendly beaches (http://www.ammothedachshund.com/2013/12/05/road-trip-with-ammo-dog-friendly-downtown-charleston-sc/). Can't wait to go back!

  3. Sarah,

    Your photography skills are to die for! Are you self taught?

    Charleston looks beautiful, I've always wanted to visit.

    1. You are so sweet, thank you Kody! That really means so much :) I had a introductory class during design school, but I really didn't get interested (or try to be interested) until after I graduated and had free roam of creativity. After that it became my favorite thing to do!
