We were headed out to dinner and decided to take a detour. We’ve never visited the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site and thought maybe it was time after 18 years. It’s amazing what you keep putting off when it’s in your hometown.
This charming house sits on the remnants of a historic plantation. Typical of southern architect you will find both a front and back porch.
The beautiful grounds were my favorite. You can tell when we’ve had a wet summer in Charleston; everything is lush and green, which is not usually the case in August.
For date night, which can be any night of the week for me, I paired this cute off-the-shoulder ruffled top with distressed, slim boyfriend jeans, gladiator sandals and simple rose-colored hoop earrings. Cute and comfortable was my goal.
I look like I’m ready to take flight.
There are a number of paths to explore the property. You can even enjoy a picnic lunch under the oaks.
The detailing on the back is very nice and adds some pizzazz to the top. This gives you an idea just how enormous the oak trees are.
The swirling design of the bricks are interesting and add to its charm.
Wishing you a great Thursday!
