“Charleston is one of the best built, most handsome, agreeable cities I’ve ever seen”
-Marquis de Lafayette
Charleston, One of the oldest cities in South Carolina and also one of the most beautiful! My boyfriend (Nicholas Oxendine) and I had the opportunity to travel down to the low country for our special friends’ wedding! Of course, we did it in style!
We traveled from Bluffton, S.C. (where the wedding was held) and Charleston in 2 days and had a damn good time. From the dancing, celebrating, eating, shopping and site seeing; we understood that this would have to happen again. Here are some of the styles and looks captured on our trip that I know you gentlemen can relate to. Just know I dressed for the bipolar weather and was pretty tricky.
the Urbnlook: This look was created for my dear friends Michael and Nikita’s Wedding! I dressed not only to be a guest but the M.C. for their reception. A lighter colored blazer to set the mood for Spring was a great choice!
Light Blue Tailored Blazer: Banana Republic, $74
Easy-Iron White Button Up: H&M, $9
The Original Penguin Floral Grey Tie: Saks 5th Avenue, $24.99
Pocket Square: Saks 5th Avenue, $9.99
Navy Suit Bottoms: H&M, $21

Bracelets: Some were gifts, some taken from my boyfriend
Stone Grey Blazer: From My boyfriend’s Parents
The Original Penguin Tie, Pocket Square & Lapel Box: Saks 5th Avenue, $24.99
theUrbnlook: I kept the suit look and made it more tourist friendly a.k.a. casual. Putting a henley shirt under your suit always makes things a little more simple. Also, notice the red, white and the blue for the fit. I tried to keep that color scheme for Memorial Day weekend; in the spirit of remembering the soldiers of our country.
Navy Blue Suit: H&M, $87
Navy and White Stripped Henley Shirt: H&M, $9.99

Ray Bans: Took’em from my boss!
That’s my little brother Jordan in the photo by the way! Say hey guys!
The weekend was a happy occasion filled with smiles, love, celebration and style! I couldn’t ask for a better Memorial Day Weekend! Hope you gentlemen had a great Memorial Day weekend as well! Let me know what you think about the looks, my experience, and even boyfriend if you want to.
Be Great, Be Stylish, Be Urbnwood
