I had a lot of fun shooting these pictures–despite the incredibly hot weather! (My hair was not made for these kinds of days.) I shared a Lily Pulitzer fringe skirt look a few posts back that you can check out. I’m still riding that wave and sharing this LP demi dress.
I’m such a pink girl, so this dress was “add to cart” at first sight. One of my favorite parts is? the sweetheart neckline–it is such a flattering style on any figure. This dress is much more of a structured/fitted look as opposed to your typical summer sway dress. It makes it great for special occasions–weddings, nights out, vacations, a grad, and so on.
A convertible strap also comes with the dress. You can see it in the slide at the end.? It adds more detail and is great if you don’t want to go strapless. If you do use the strap, I would suggest skipping a necklace and just accessorizing with statement earrings or bracelets instead.
You can also pair it with a structured jacket for cooler nights (or if you’re trapped inside AC). I would be careful with anything too lose or “flimsy” though since it will dress down the look, and mixing the styles will look sloppy.
Also, I linked some similar shoes as well as a pair of heels from NY & Co that I adore. As far as accessories go, I choose gold because this pink + gold color combo is hands down my fave (not to mention these colors bring out your summer tan). You can find the exact earrings and necklace down below as well. I’ll let you in on a little secret–Kohl’s and Target!
Don’t mind me, just being one of the boys. Mk? Mk. Sometimes I love to dress up and other days my mood demands denim and a ball cap. It’s a balancing act really. (It also makes packing for trips a bit of a challenge.) But, I am loving the look and feel of these distressed boyfriend jeans.
American eagle has the most comfortable jeans in my opinion. The tomgirl style (their boyfriend jean equivalent) I’m wearing is no exception. They have a lot of extra room for when you want something more relaxed and not as tight or restraining. And I love the distressed look on this style because it just adds to the laid back feeling.
This tank is under $7. Actually, I grabbed it and tried it on just because I wanted to try on a pair of overalls and needed something to finish the look. However, I ended up walking away with this tank instead because I love how it fits. It is super easy to wear and no fuss. I wasn’t able to link it at the end, so here is the must-have slim tank if you want to check that out. A loose v-neck or pull-over would also be a perfect go-to for these jeans.
Also, quick note, I love these flops. They are Lauren Conrad, and come in a lot of colors! I wore them a couple posts back with shorts and a peplum tank. I consider them my “fancy” flip-flops. You can go ahead and laugh now, but they are under $10 and are great for running out the door. They are even cute with a sundress–especially the gold pair!
Finally, this watch was from NY & Co a while back, but I still linked a silver colored watch below that I love (maybe even more) and similar hoops as well. This cap is from Altar’d State. It is one of my new favorite stores–and seriously smells sooo good! You can view the Oh My Stars ball cap here.?I also added another cap down below that is super cute (and cheaper!).
(I try my best to link everything at the end and in one place, but sometimes I’m not able to. In that case I will just link them directly in my text.)
Anyone else considering running away with a suitcase of Lily Pulitzer prints? I love their bright colors + preppy style. I’ve been (impatiently) waiting for August to roll around so I can order one of their agenda planners. I have a planner obsession and now that my last one has finally ended, I can justify buying yet another one–and I’ve had my eye on a couple from LP. I’ll throw it on the Insta once I finally settle!
Big decisions big decisions.
This Lily Pulitzer fringe skirt absolutely pulled on my heart strings. I love that it is a bit unique and even a little different than the typical Lily vibe. The fabric is very thin and lightweight, making it perfect for hot summer days (and nights).
I’m a pink girl, so I decided to pull out the pink in the skirt and pair it with this high neck ruffle tank. I love the details, but kept it simple since the skirt is already a bit busy.
Let’s not get too crazy.
These ankle-strap wedge sandals are from New York & Co. Because they were from a few seasons back, they are no longer available. But, I linked a similar pair from Charlotte Russe as well as another pair I found on NY & Co that I love. I like the heel look or a thin wedge with this outfit just because they are a little more delicate and flow a little better than the typical wicker wedge. You could also try it with peep toe booties that I styled with a paperbag skirt a few posts back or just simple sandals.
Pretty hard to go wrong here!
I will also link for you this pendant necklace (they are going quick) and some similar bracelets down below. I have been really crushing over bracelets lately and love to throw on a few per arm.
Happy weekend, Friends!
