I’ve officially decided that bachelorette parties are my new favorite thing! One of my best friends from high school (Katie) is getting married in May, but wanted to do a fun summery trip with all of her girls before her big day. So instead of Vegas, she opted to have her bachelorette party the week after Labor Day in Isle of Palms beach, right outside of Charleston, SC. Yep, there were 18 ladies in one house! Can you believe it?
Funny thing is, a lot of us girls had been to Panama City for spring break our sophomore year of college together, so in a way it was like one big reunion trip. I was able to see all of my BFFs from high school and actually catch up and spend quality time with everyone. It’s so hard to find a great, tight-knit group of girls you genuinely love hanging out with once school is over and you move to a new city. Needless to say, we had a blast celebrating Katie’s new status. And other than the one night we actually got dolled up and went into Charleston to party, we basically lived in our bathing suits the entire time. Clearly, I’m not one of those fashion bloggers who feels the need to put on a front that I’m uber chic 24/7. Because no, I definitely don’t do my hair and makeup for the beach or pool. #sorryimnotsorry

It’s pawwwwwty bus time! That poor driver definitely didn’t know what to do with this many rowdy ladies.
Curly hair don’t care! Clearly no night out is complete without a good selfie.
All smiles during dinner at The Blind Tiger in downtown Charleston.
After running into about the 10th bride-to-be that night, let’s just say Katie was less than pleased. Who knew Charleston was such a hot spot for bachelorette parties!?
You can’t put a late night candy store next to a bar and expect us NOT to go in there…
My good friend and insanely talented hairstylist, Miss Stefanie Fisher, gave me a waterfront haircut! Loving the layers and angles she added.
Charleston is known for having some of the best seafood. Big thanks to my girl Haley for cooking up such a scrumptious homemade meal, also known as a “Low Country Shrimp Boil.” Mmmm, mmm. Delicious.
Had to get a group shot before chowing down.
Missing these ladies so much already! May couldn’t come sooner…
