Travel Outfit: Charleston, SC

My travel outfit for Charleston, SC had to meet two simple criteria: comfortable layers and easy walking shoes for all those cobblestone streets.

My husband and I spent a few days in Charleston, South Carolina last week to visit family and one of the highlights was exploring the beautiful downtown along East Bay Street.

I’m obsessed with courtyards, flowers, iron gates, and old buildings, so the walk around Charleston’s historic streets was pure heaven for me.

The temperature was mild that day, ranging from low 50s in the morning to mid-60s in the afternoon. I knew I’d alternate feeling chilly in the shade and then warm in the sun, so I dressed in breathable layers with a lightweight sweater from The Limited and denim leggings from Express.

Because I’m rather clumsy (been known to trip over small cracks in the sidewalk!), the Converse sneakers helped me navigate the uneven brick streets! 

I hope you enjoy some of the photos!

I love sharing my travel experiences here with you, but I’d love to get to know you more. Do you get excited by old homes, gardens, and door decorations? What do you like to wear when traveling?

  1. I love Charleston! I was there once a couple of years ago and want to visit it again. I like your casual and comfortable outfit very much. When I travel, I always wear sneakers and comfortable clothes to be able to walk to many places. I love historic places! Your photos perfectly capture the beauty of this city. Have a great weekend, Mary!

  2. I love this casual look on you. I also prefer to dress comfortably when I travel. I love to wear Superga gym shoes. I once went on a trip to Universal Studios Theme Park in Orlando with my husband and two boys. I wore my Superga’s the entire time and my feet never hurt. However, my husband and my two boys were complaining about sore feet and they had on nice running shoes. They are now my go to shoes when I am planning on doing a lot of walking. I’ll have to check out Charleston some time. It looks lovely. I love the cobblstone streets. Thanks for sharing your fantastic photos with us.
