Southern Belle Ruffle Tiered Dress

Contrary to what you may know about me, I’m a city girl born and raised outside Boston, Massachusetts.   But for the last decade I’ve been posing as a Southern Belle living in Florida. 

I love to go back home and visit (matter of fact I’ll be heading to Boston in a few days to visit my bestie to see Mr. JT in concert) and don’t get me wrong a part of me will always be a city girl but living in the South has it’s charm.

I would never have thought I would have anything pleasant to say about living in the South.

When I first moved to Florida it was such a culture shock and I hated everything and I mean everything.  I felt like I didn’t belong and people were mean and that famed Southern Hospitality was a false pretense and people really were just really good of being polite with their rudeness.

I hated the fact that I needed to drive because everything is so far apart.  Oh and I hated the drivers too.  I hated that there wasn’t a Haitian Bakery so I could get my pastry fix and I hated started my adult life in a place I never thought I would be.

I was a Debra Downer to say the least but at a certain point I had to stop complaining.  My living situation wasn’t going to change.

My attitude was so poor and was the real issue and that could change with a little work.

I had to force myself at first but I eventually learned to see the postives of living in Florida.  I would then find the people who would become my people.    Got my footing at work, in my congregation and I started to travel within my new state and be a tourist in my new Southern home.

No place is perfect and I do miss Boston at times but a happy home is what you make it and the South does have its charms.

I never was a beach person living up north.  It was such a big to-do that we just hardly ever went.  Now I live 25 minutes away from the beach and keep a beach chair and umbrella in the trunk of my car.  Like, who am I?

I also love visiting historic cities like St. Augustine, FL,  Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC.  There’s just so charming about cobblestone streets and colonial homes that I love.

I recently visited Charleston which has no shortage of southern charm.  Beautiful tree lined streets, great food and a darling downtown are the makings of a perfect southern weekend getaway.

It was my first time going and didn’t have time to hit up all the places on my list so I will be back soon.

This dress was the perfect look to stroll down the streets of Charleston’s downtown.  I just need a blush colored colonial with a huge wrap around porch and two rocking chair for me and my beau (in my head).
