Me and My Sexy Boots Take on the Capitol

By Laurie Bower Epps

This winter is unseasonably warm here in the south, so when my college buddy invited me down to the state capitol for the weekend, I jumped at the chance.

I didn't really dress for my fashion blog, but I was in my favorite weekend leggings. The big success was getting into my sexy boots that I bought the day before I broke my foot while walking the family dog in January.

My youngest is studying state history in school, a visit to the capitol building itself seemed to be in order while we were in town anyway. I really hope to revisit the capitol building and grounds again this spring.


The original capitol building was in Charleston, however, the SC State Congress voted to move the capitol to Columbia in 1786. A fire claimed the first state capitol, as well as, the cabinet felt that being a port city made Charleston more vulnerable to invaders. Columbia is also exactly in the middle of the state, so more accessible to the residents of South Carolina. To find out more about the history of the capitol building, click here.
