I am currently recovering from our weekend in Charleston celebrating the bachelorette, Mackenzie. We had the best time and I swear you can see my abs just from all the laughing we did this past weekend. Life can be funny in so many ways.
For those of you that don’t know, Mackenzie and I met over email about seven years ago–she was still in college and I was bored to death sitting at my first post-college job. We kept in touch through our blogs and email, but never met in person. When she moved to Dallas a little over two years ago, we met up for dinner. Without sounding completely corny and after our shared love for rosé, I knew immediately we were going to be “real life” friends. Well, a few years later, multiple vacations, work trips, and playing hooky every Friday, I feel so lucky to call her one of my best friends.
From the moment we arrived in Charleston, I knew this was going to be a weekend for the memory books. Mackenzie’s sister created the perfect bachelorette party itinerary and the entire group became fast friends. Head over to Design Darling to see our complete itinerary.
The weather was ideal the entire weekend. Think: high 70s and sunshine, perfect for spring dresses. Since we received the itinerary in advance, I picked up a few necessities from Tuckernuck. If you have been reading my blog for some time, you know that the brand has become a go-to. From classic pieces, like this stripe top, to fun party dresses, Tuckernuck always curates a collection that is my style in a nutshell.
We arrived on Friday afternoon and I knew we were probably going to hit the ground running, so so I opted for a stripe top (surprise, surprise), high waisted jeans and sandals. Naturally, Amy and I showed up wearing the same outfit. It’s funny we have only been together three or four times, but we are definitely kindred spirits. I was the first one to arrive, so I unpacked my bags and strolled around the cute streets before the rest of the group arrived. I ended up finding this cute little bakery, Sugar, that was down the street from our AirBnB. I had planned on changing into this top and wedges for dinner but we ended up drinking rosé and ordering take-out to the house. I had the best time getting to know all of Mackenzie’s highschool/college friends and cousins.
The next day, we woke up and threw on our workout clothes to grab coffee Black Tap and brunch at La Farfalle . I recently picked up this pair of leggings from Tory Sport. It is still a hard tie between these and my Outdoor Voices.
After our day activities and a few cocktails, we freshened up for dinner at Edmond’s Oast. If you are looking for a dinner spot in Charleston, I highly recommend! Everyones food looked incredible. I opted for the fish and chips because after a few glasses of rosé, nothing sounds better than french fries. I ended up wearing this linen dress which was a last minute purchase before the trip. I am so glad I ordered it, but I would recommend some fashion tape for the super low cut if you plan to dance the night away– like we did ;)
The next day, some of the girls had to leave early for the airport, so Mackenzie, Amy, Mackenzie’s sister and cousin and I headed to brunch. I threw on this dress, tote and sandals to spend the day wandering around downtown Charleston. Mackenzie’s cousin, Chelsea and I had late flights on Sunday so we dropped our bags at the Zero George Street Hotel and then headed to Rainbow Row, Tradd Street and South of Broad.
Now, I am just counting down the days until I see all of my new best friends again in Nantucket!
