Southern Hospitality

I have to say that I had an absolutely fabulous weekend in Charlotte, NC. It was filled with good food, great atmosphere, and wonderful company. Downtown Charlotte was so pretty and very very clean! We stayed at the Omni hotel which was nice. The concierge was very knowledgeable as well as the front desk. The room was well lit, large, and the beds were comfortable which made for a great stay. Weather wise we also were very lucky; it was sunny and warm the entire time we were there which made Saturday great for lounging at the pool. The formal itself was wonderful. No detail was overlooked which is surprising since men were the organizers of the weekend; I was without a doubt very impressed. Here are some pictures from my fabulous weekend. Enjoy!The room had a great view. Each night around nine we were able to look out our window and see a small brass band playing on the corner, it was so great!This is a picture of my date and I from Friday night after dinner. A few of us were touring the city and we found an adorable little alcove with a fountain which was so cute! I also tried the romper/jumper trend and I do have to say that it isn't my style but it was so comfortable! It was dressy enough for dinner because the fabric had a satin finish with a textured pattern. I made it more 'my style' by added pearl studs, pearl necklace and my JR's. I got many compliments and although owning one romper is plenty for me, I know I will get a lot of wear out of it.K, C, N, and I lounging by the pool. Having my sorority sisters there added even more fun to the weekend. We loved soaking up the sun together.My date bBf and I before dinner. I completed my Calvin Klein frock with a double strand of pearls, pearl studs, gold and diamond ring, and black pumps. I loved my dress!
With my lovely sorority sisters again. They all looked so pretty too! My dress was actually a floor length gown when I purchased it but since I wore a gown to my formal with bBf, I thought I'd change it up. So, I had the bottom hemmed and just loved it!
I hope you all had as fabulous of a weekend as I did. Have a great day!
Yours,
sCe
