fashion fave

last wednesday night the mr and i attended a cookout for our dear friends, the (now) scott's! it was casual and mostly outside around the bonfire so i chose something simple to wear (since i would have a coat on the whole time). i wore my 2 favorite fashion buys of the season. i am so excited to show you!

hometown highlight: sugar bakeshop

delicious! i happened upon sugar bakeshop by accident. i already had my cake and baker picked out for my wedding and last minute that just didn't work out. so i was driving down cannon street and saw this charming bakery and decided to give it a whirl. i went in and just ordered a lemon (my fave) cupcake. to-die-for. i was blown away! i quickly made contact with the owner...whom happens to live right next door in a lovely old charleston house.... and this is what i ended up with


we chose to do 3 cakes with as many flavors as we could choose! the cakes all have butter cream frosting and white chocolate shavings on them. i wanted to go with a very soft and enchanting feeling so we chose all white. they peaked the icing instead of smoothing it making all the texture stand out. it was everything i ever dreamed of.
the cake topper was on the cake of my nana and pop, unfortunately my nana is no longer with us and i was so honored to be able to have pieces of her with me on my special day :)
love you nana

here are a few shots of sugar bakeshop

whenever you find yourself in the charleston area hop on over to cannon street for an adorable treat!
