Do you remember how I just showed off my favorite fall outfit? Well someone must have turned up the heat because it was 80 degrees this weekend! 80! So of course I had to throw on a silk, summery dress to combat the heat and still look cute. This silky number was picked up from one of my favorite boutiques, Lily Rain, and I got it for such a steal after our Paper Meets Pearl x Lily Rain party earlier in September. It’s extremely light weight and the deep blue color looks fantastic on anyone. Throw on my leather jacket and I’m ready to take this hot little dress well into the fall. But there’s more to this look than just a dress and jacket, let me tell you about this beautiful necklace I’m wearing. I’ve teamed up with local family owned jeweler, Gold Creations, to style their stunning Gate Pendant necklace with Charleston’s famous Rice Beads. Charleston has grown so dear to my heart after the recent tragedies our city has suffered in the past four months. After personally being affected by the recent floods, I wanted to find something that I can always wear to remind me of how far we have come and how we all have reacted in times of tragedy. When the time came, we all joined together and showed the world how strong we are through love and friendship and that is an incredible feeling. Their Gate Pendant with the Charleston Rice Beads is the perfect necklace to keep your city close and complete any outfit. I love how this entire outfit can be worn to work, date night, or to dinner with your closest girlfriends. If you want to purchase your very own Gate Pendant with the Charleston Rice Beads, you can visit Gold Creations at 74 South Market Street, Charleston or click on any of the link throughout to order one online.
I love this necklace and it’s easily going to become one of my staple pieces in my outfit rotation. I can’t wait to buy a couple for my family this Christmas as well! Also, can you believe that Christmas is two months away? I don’t know where this year has gone!
