Thinking back to when I was a little girl, I remember having a few specific dresses and tops that I fell in love with. Each time I wore them I felt a sense of happiness and satisfaction. As I’ve grown up and these pieces have come and gone, I’ve come to realize that this is what it feels like when you find something that truly fits your personal style and esthetic. This top has recently become one of those pieces within my wardrobe.
Before I left for Europe earlier this summer, I went shopping for some easy pieces to mix into my wardrobe and I picked up this top. I’ve worn this shirt so much since purchasing it and I have lots of fond memories attached to it, especially from my time in Paris.
If I’m being 100% honest, I got up this morning to look at this year’s After Party Sale from Lilly Pulitzer and I hadn’t planned on buying anything… but OH MY GOODNESS the sale this year is SO good!
I used to shop the sale each year, but in recent years I really wasn’t all that impressed. I’ve had negative experiences in the past few years with the sale; either prices were too high or things sold out too fast. However, this year Lilly did an amazing job with the line moving pretty quickly and also having a significant amount of stock to meet the demand they’ve been experiencing!
I’m super happy with my purchases and I’ve highlighted a few more of my favorites below so if you haven’t managed to take a look at the sale yet you can still see some of my picks from the goodies that you’ll be able to shop from this year.
When I’ve been getting dressed in a rush this summer, one of my consistent go-tos has been to throw on a romper, then accessorize! I like to consider rompers as the casual sister to a dress. You get to make one easy choice for the primary portion of your outfit, then a few smaller accessory choices when finishing up your look.
It’s bittersweet that this is my last photo diary from this summer’s trip to Europe. However, some of my favorite photos were taken in Paris, so I’m excited to finally be sharing these with all of you!
Paris was beautiful and quite a bit like I imagined. It rained our first day in the morning, but then it cleared up while we were in Notre Dame.
On our second day in Paris we decided to check out the Louvre. It was HUGE! We barely got through one section in the first hour and a half. If you plan on visiting, definitely make sure you give yourself enough time to really enjoy it!
Our final “major” city stop in Europe was Paris! On our second day in the city, we hit up some major landmarks and paid a visit to The Eiffel Tower & then Versailles. (Versailles in particular was absolutely stunning!)
Happy August, lovelies! It’s time for a brand new monthly playlist and this is one of my all time favorites that I’ve ever curated. The songs on this month’s playlist all have a super summery vibe and I love absolutely all of them! If I had to pick a favorite, “Closer” and “Cold Water” would be tied. I hope you all enjoy these songs as much as I have been. Happy listening!
This past Sunday I was invited to speak on the VIP Influencer Panel at DAYGLEAM hosted by MADE Magazine at the Godfrey hotel. I had a blast and I got to meet and connect with some absolutely remarkable individuals!
This was my first time ever speaking at an event like this, so I was very nervous beforehand, but it ended up being a TON of fun and a fantastic experience!
