Nico Restaurant + Thoughts for Friday

Jul 13, 2018

TGIF friends!  Did a lot of you get to shop the Nordstrom sale yesterday?  I know there were all sorts of site issues but thank goodness the sale lasts 4 more weeks!  I know many of you expressed an interest for more coverage on Charleston restaurants, so I wanted to share another new one I tried this week.

I wore this super cute dress and it is under $100!  I am wearing a size small and I am 5’9 for those curious about length.

Dress | Necklaces | Sandals

A close up of my sandals, I am obsessed.

I had never been to Nico before and loved it.  It is located in the Shem Creek area in Mount Pleasant.   For those of you who watch Southern Charm it is Naomi’s family’s restaurant. They have a cute outdoor seating area and the inside was cool as well.

We shared several dishes.  We started with the chef’s oyster samples which is 12 oysters of his choosing.  They were all so fresh.

We had the tuna tartare and goat cheese salad.

The roasted beets.

and my favorite the seafood gnocchi, it was all really delicious.

My maxi dress I ordered from Amazon arrived and I love it!  It is under $60 but looks way more expensive.  It also comes in a pretty coral color.  It has adjustable straps and elastic smocked back.  I am wearing a size 6, I may could have done a 4 but the 6 fits great.

I am still loving my Care/of vitamins.   I swear I have so much more energy and feel clear headed! You answer a few questions and then they put together a box specifically designed to your needs.    The first five people that use this code NM1469  at checkout will get a month of free vitamins (up to $40) !

I keep ordering more items from the Nordstrom sale, when they arrive I will do a try on!  All of these are under $100.

But just snagged this gorgeous white blouse.

White Blouse– I ordered a small, also comes in black

Jogger Pants– these are so soft!  I did a medium.

Emerald Dress– I did a size small


Dress- this reminds me of Sea, love it and fingers crossed it fits.

Frances Moon pulled out all her stuffed animals this week and was in pure heaven.

Sterling has been doing a sailing camp all week and loving it!

Have a great Friday and weekend!!

    Thanks so much for posting the vitamin info! I’ve been looking to add some additional supplements, so the personalized profile is intriguing.

    I just ordered some vitamins as well. I am curious if it will help me as much as I want them too 🙂 Also totally none of my business but I noticed that you haven’t posted about your bf in a while, everything ok?

    I have been on the fence for a while about trying Care/of, so today I took the plunge thanks to your promo code. Thank you!
