Girls Weekend In Charleston


Before tying the knot in June a bunch of my girlfriends joined me in Charleston, SC to celebrate, drink lots of champagne, and laugh until we cried! It was a very special weekend and I feel so grateful to have such incredible friends and family. I've been dying to share every little detail with you! 

A dream getaway for me includes pampering, relaxing, and sun-bathing. The girls worked so hard to make my bachelorette weekend just that. Rather than checking into a hotel we decided to rent a big ol' beach house for the weekend. It was steps away from the ocean and the girls decked it out with flamingos, pineapples, and tote bags filled with goodies- including custom chocolate covered pretzels from Fatty Sundays (they were to die for). 

I wanted to surprise the girls with a sweet and very southern-inspired lunch at Boone Hall. I was dying to visit the plantation and thought this would be the perfect place to organize a lunch. I reached out to Ava Moore Photography and Gigi of Smells Like Peonies Events to pull it off. With the help of Corsivo Calligraphy, Wildflowers Inc, Event Works, & Swank Desserts, it turned out to be one epic lunch date with my girls.

To catch the full details from my bachelorette weekend, head over to Style Me Pretty today! And if you are on the hunt for more bachelorette party ideas don't forget to visit The Bach Party. My sister stumbled upon tons of cute ideas from following them on Instagram.

Huge thank you to the following vendors for making this weekend so beautiful, delicious, and delightful:

Off The Shoulder

Outfit Details: Urban Outfitters Smocked Off-The-Shoulder Dress (come in two new colors), Preston & Olivia Hat, Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody (similar here), BP Nordstrom Sandals (also love these)

If there's one definite trend this summer, it's off-the-shoulder everything. Not only is this neckline universally flattering, but it will keep you cool in the hottest of temps (pull your hair back for extra comfort). I'm a sucker for bare shoulders this season and it looks like this flirty trend will be working its way into your fall wardrobe as well - thanks to the runway shows. The styling possibilities for off-the-shoulder pieces are endless. For now, it's best to keep layering at a minimum, but once the cooler weather hits, it's on with the booties and leather jackets. 

I picked up this smocked dress before our honeymoon (got the last one available in store!). It's available in two new colors for Fall, so hurry up and grab one before they fully sell out. Click directly below to shop.

Stripes in Ravello

 

It's safe to say I fell in love with Italy. Italians have simply mastered the way of life- family first, good food, and good conversation. There is so much incredible history to be discovered on the streets. We started our honeymoon in Amalfi and then ventured our way up into the mountains to stay a few nights in Ravello. These photos were snapped at Villa Rufolo, one of the most exquisite villas I've ever seen. We spent a few hours roaming the gardens and admiring the architecture. 

The weather was absolutely perfect during our two week stay in Italy. Some might say 90 degrees is a little excessive, but we really enjoyed the heat and were truly thankful for no rain! I spent the majority of my trip in this classic boater-style Evelyn Hat from Preston & Olivia. It perfectly shaded me from the sun, and is there anything better than summer whites and a wide brimmed hat? I think not!

I picked up this striped LWD from Club Monaco before my trip. This store has everything (and more) for beachy getaways. My wallet is in big trouble for the Fall season because their new arrivals are totally on point. See some of my favorites below and click directly to shop.
