We couldn't be more excited to recap this Charleston bachelorette weekend for you guys! Why?! Because the bride-to-be is a long-time favorite lifestyle bloggers of ours, Caitlin Covington, although you may know her better from Instagram as @cmcoving or from her blog, Southern Curls and Pearls. Caitlin lives in Charlotte, North Carolina and is one of the most-adorable bloggers out there... we LOVE every outfit she wears!
When we heard Caitlin was engaged to her fiancé, Chris, we had to reach out about her bachelorette party! Like we expected, Caitlin's last fling was nothing short of amazing and we couldn't be more thrilled to have been a part of it. The girls spent the weekend in Charleston enjoying the beach and plenty of R&R before the big day. Read on for the full recap!
