okl challenge

Friday, May 18, 2012

I don't normally enter contests and I never win blog giveaways or anything of that nature. But I saw the One Kings Lane Pinterest Contest to describe your perfect summer day and thought, "what a fun idea!" And since I've become a pinning maniac, all the better. So my perfect day is all about Charleston, SC.

Before we get started, here's a little snippet from OKL - neat huh?

In the spirit of summer, I designed my board inspired by a recent visit in Charleston to see family. I'm not from there but I love the spirit of the city and it was probably our last visit for some time once we move overseas. Despite the sweltering summer heat, I think that's a perfect town for a perfect summer day. Maybe start with a day sail in a small boat on the harbor, a picnic aboard perhaps followed by a swim, afternoon cocktails on the piazza and finally a late dinner on the town. Sounds like fun, don't you think? You can see my entire board here.

And of course, my favorite summer sip, a simple Tom Collins.

I'll try to get some photos from this past visit up for next week but let me tell you, I love that city eve more after every visit. So tell me, after all this what is your perfect summer day? Have a great weekend!!
