Mamas Spring Break 2017

While scheduling the 2017 Supper Club calendar our group of 11 ladies decided to swap out our open month for an annual beach weekend. Our club has several pregnant mamas or mamas with newborns but we still ended up with 6 girls for the trip this year!  A few snapshots from our Mamas Spring Break...
Each year the vacation planner will rotate but McKinsey graciously raised her hand to plan our first beach getaway..and she nailed it. She selected the most beautiful 4 bedroom house (with a private pool!!) just three hours away on Isle of Palms for 3 nights. Oh, and she also wins best friend ever for being 22 weeks pregnant (with baby #2) and volunteering to be our DD the entire trip.
Five out of six of us arrived around lunch time on Thursday so we stopped at Pages Okra Grill for cocktails and lunch and then made a quick grocery stop on our way to the house. The rest of the afternoon was spent sipping rose` poolside and relaxing without our little people running around.
For our first dinner out we ate at The Obstinate Daughter where we all agreed The Kings Honey cocktail was one of the best we've ever had. In fact, this was my favorite dinner of the trip. 
Cooler Bag & Beach Tote c/o Scout // Fedora (on sale) // Swim Suit (print sold out but bikini version here & solid one piece version here)
Friday morning we made breakfast, packed up all the bags, booze and snacks and spent the day on the beach.
The weather was unbelievably perfect and all of us got burnt despite our many sunscreen applications.
My romper (on sale for $26) // pink tassel earrings ($12 -- available in 6 colors)
 Friday night we ate at Acme Lowcountry Kitchen.
Saturday was another beautiful beach day!
Getting ready together as a big group each night was one of my favorite parts of the vacation. We piled into the sitting room (dubbed as Laura's Beauty Bar) with curling irons, eye shadow pallets, charcuterie plates and mimosas.. Laura spent hours perfectly curling hair, Lisa gave makeup lessons, I topped off the drinks and we all danced around like complete fools to the best pop play lists. It was so so so nice to take our time getting ready without toddlers chasing us with sippy cups and snack demands.
Soooo much makeup envy.
Most requested outfit deets from InstaStories: My romper // Abby's yellow lace dress (sold out) // Sara's yellow floral dress // Lisa's stripe top
For our last dinner out we headed into Charleston for happy hour at Zero George and a late dinner at FIG.
Zero George was definitely one of the trip highlights. We arrived at the perfect time to steal the best lounge area in the house and shared the most delicious charcuterie board and a few bottles of my new favorite Sauvignon Blanc, Cloudy Bay.
On Sunday we woke up bright and early and rushed home to our babies! It was the perfect mama spring break!

  2. We stayed at Wild Dunes on Isle of Palms two weeks ago and loved it. Acme was one of my favorite places to eat, but the Obstinate Daughter did not live up to the hype for us (AND I was SO disappointed since EVERYONE and their mother recommended it). So glad you enjoyed it! I wish we were only a few hours away instead of 5. :(

  4. What a fun trip! My girlfriends and I used to be so good at planning girl's trips, but now we're in the wedding stage (went to 10 last year whew!) so those tend to take precedent. Excited to get back to doing them soon, especially once kiddos get added to the mix! If you don't have it - buy the Naked Basic palette - it's so good and lasts forever (I'm really bad a makeup and that palette makes me look like I know what I'm doing with eyeshadow haha)
