Hanging Out At…Hyman’s Seafood

hymanssource


The other night, I went out to Hyman’s Seafood for Restaurant Week. It wasn’t the best meal I’ve ever had. I got the Wadmalaw Delight as an appetizer and the Carolina Delight as an entree.

Wadmalaw Delight
Local fried green tomatoes served on creamy grits and topped with Carolina cream sauce, cheese and cajun seasoning.
Carolina Delight
Shrimp and Grits taken up a notch. Our #1 Appetizer! Lightly fried grit cake topped with your choice of shrimp, Salmon croquette or salmon. Covered with a creamy, rich garlic alfredo sauce then sprinkled with a hint of Cajun seasoning. Decadent and delicious!
I should have known that because they were both some kind of “delight”, that they would taste identical. It was just too much of the same flavor and so heavy, I was just over it within the first few bites. The Key Lime Pie for dessert was the best part, which you would know, if you follow me on Insta 🙂

The service was really good though. The waiter was friendly and the owner came over and said if we had any suggestions about how to make things better, then they wanted to know. I did appreciate that, but it was difficult to describe what could have made it better.  After talking to more locals, I was told it was a touristy spot. But whatever, what you REALLY cared about was what I was wearing, right?
Well, I don’t want to disappoint!
img_0099This cute chevron maxi dress was a gift. I think it was purchased from a shop found from Pinterest (similar). Speaking of Pinterest, a few years ago, I uploaded a photo of me in this dress the first time I wore it, and it ended up being my “Most Pinned Pin” ever, at over 1,000 re-pins! Earrings are from Charming Charlie (similar)

Hanging Out At…Terrain at Styers

IMG_8139I realized that I have been checking out some cool places lately. So I’ve made a new category for all of my posts documenting the fun places where we can “hang out” at together!

I have been wanting to visit Terrain at Styers for a long time now. It’s owned by Urban Outfitters, so you KNOW it’s going to be amazing…Finally, I had my opportunity to get myself out there, so last weekend, I took myself on a nice brunch date there 🙂

First, I strolled around the greenhouses and outdoor areas:

IMG_8140 IMG_8141The mantle with the greenery was such a sweet idea to bring some character to a weathered shed.IMG_8142The smell of a wood burning fire was so welcoming on this warm winter day. It stayed in my hair for hours after I left!IMG_8143 IMG_8144IMG_8173IMG_8171And then I checked out the little Mushroom House:IMG_8149IMG_8151 IMG_8152It was being set up for a private gathering later that day. A woman was setting up in there, so I could only snap a few clandestine shots before I snuck out of there 🙂

Then, it was off to the cafe!IMG_8150 IMG_8153Again, sly photography-but you can see the beverage bar area made of what looked to be wood boxes. S0 garden-y…IMG_8154Even the way they used the white birch branches inside of a “house frame” was theme-y in a good way. It felt like a whimsical bird house!

Once I was at my table, I enjoyed the gnomey rustic-ness of the dining area.IMG_8157 IMG_8158IMG_8156I was a little disappointed when I tried to order my meal. I asked them to substitute potato hash and bacon with apple fritters (obviously), and they got themselves into a kerfluffle just trying to figure out how they were going to do that. And when my meal came out, it was missing the hash browns and sausage, but came with bacon. Not too big of a deal, but the waitress said nicely, “Usually, we charge extra for custom orders, but since we’re not busy, we’ll make an exception”…When I read their menu, bacon, sausage, and apple fritters were all the same cost, so I’m not sure who it cost them more, but anyway…I ordered their Breakfast Board, which was 2 overlays eggs, a petite salad, 2 pieces of challah toast, bacon, and my apple fritters 🙂 I also got a cherry vanilla homemade soda. I splurged a little bit on my calories, so sue me…IMG_8155Loved the wood slice plate that it was served on, and the receipt came in this sweet vintage kite book. Overall, my waitress was nice, the food was good, and the atmosphere divine. IMG_8160IMG_8159Next, I visited their shop. Which was stunning. In fact, I was so inspired, that I created a whole model apartment concept after this polished rustic look for work…

It was gorg!

Overall, I thought it was beautiful! I have to say, I am REALLY looking forward to going back in the spring (which is mere weeks away!) when more flora is blooming. An updated post may follow…

I hope you liked tagging along with me on my weekend adventure 🙂

Pinspiration:White Button Down and Leather Pants

The Huntress-Pinspiration

Late last night, I realized that I have been so busy this week that I didn’t get to do a Pinspiration post! Even worse, I didn’t even go on Pinterest to find an outfit to inspire me for Wednesday. So I took a few hours minutes browsing and found an outfit to recreate. In my rush this morning, I blended 2 outfits together. This is only unfortunate, because I have all of the pieces to make each outfit individually. But it is what is is for today…

Pinspiration 1white shirt and skinny jeans

Pinspiration 2

leather pants, cardigan, and chambray top

 

And here’s my hybrid:

IMG_3819Taupe Cardigan: Ann Taylor Factory

White Button Down: Boscov’s, Architect Petite (not loving this shirt, so I’m not going to bother linking it) Try this solid one, this subtle striped one, or this polka dotted one from, where else, but J Crew Factory for a better, slimmer fit! Or to get REALLY close to the Pinspiration 1 shirt, try the Endless Shirt from J Crew also.

Pleather Leggings (Pleather in the front, regular leggings in the back-mullet style) are from TJ Maxx

Taupe Boots: Marco Tozzi

The long, white tank I am wearing here is my ancient American Eagle one. After I saw a hole in the side, I FINALLY ordered a long white tank top from Olivia and Jane, which I talked about in this post. I got it on a flash sale a few days ago from Jane.com (WARNING: This site is dangerous!!) I only bought 1, so in case I hate it, I won’t feel bad , and if I love it, I can buy 9 more 🙂
