The Charming Index – February

Charming | ADJ. | The power or quality of giving delight…

Your monthly guide to charming things, people, places, reads, eats, and style!

No. 1 Antiques & Garden Show, Nashville

One of the oldest antique and garden shows in the South, this show mingles over 150 antique, art, and horticulture dealers with beautiful indoor gardens. Lots of pretty antiques, stunning florals, and interior inspiration to be found! I took my mother this year, and we had a grand time walking the booths and gazing at the gardens.

No. 2 Brunch at Mockingbird

Without a doubt order the French toast and a Church Punch! Two words to convince you: pineapple sorbet…

No. 3 Oyster plates

Ban saltines and shot glasses forthwith! Give me 6 slippery little fellows merrily nestled over ice on charming oyster plates any day! I’m sharing all about the history of these dishes as part of the #SouthernHeirloomSundays series.

No. 4 Pink Handbags

Thoughts of spring have me craving a pastel handbag like this one with a bow or this quilted beauty.

No. 5 New Shampoo

I recently switched to Pureology shampoo and conditioner, and I am loving how silky it makes my hair.

No. 6 The Frances Valentine Campaign with Rachel Brosnahan

I’m obsessed with “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” so to see the actress showcasing this charming accessories line from Kate Spade is fantastic! I love this quirky and chic line. It is so much more authentic and in tune with Kate Spade’s original line.

No. 7 Faux Peonies

While I am not a huge fan of faux florals, these beauties look so real and they are the perfect color pink! Found them at my local floral shop in Clinton – Hoskins in the Flat.

No. 8 Pretty Spring Scarves

I’m always on the look out for pretty scarves. They add such a charming touch to any outfit, so for my birthday this month I purchased my first truly designer one, but at a fraction of the cost from The RealReal. I snagged a Salvatore Ferragamo one for $80! Here are my other picks: pale yellow Versace | pink and violet Céline | floral Ferragamo

No. 9 Blogger Stacie Flinner

I’m charmed by Flinner’s inspiring travel adventures and elegant style!

No. 10 The New GMG Resort Dresses

Headed somewhere warm and sunny for spring break? You need something from Julia Engel’s resort collection! Personally, I’m obsessing over this jumpsuit and this floral dress.

The Charming Index is a new monthly series to share what I’m loving and my life lately! Hope you’ve enjoyed February’s edition!
