The dahlias on Enders Island in Mystic, Connecticut never cease to amaze me. For the second year in a row, I have visited the gardens and been absolutely blown away by the countless petals, blooms, colors and variety. From the dahlias to the hydrangeas to the potted plants to the fruit trees to the rose garden, everything on the island is flourishing and colorful; such a beautiful place to spend an afternoon!

I love the way my Lilly shift popped against the vibrant dahlias, it really is the perfect summer dress! The back even has the cutest tie on it… it reminds me of the brand’s older styles! As always, I wore my favorite pair of summer sandals. If you ever find yourself in Connecticut, a trip Enders Island is a must. It’s the perfect place to picnic, spend time in prayer or just take in the immense beauty of the world we live in.

While vacationing in Florida a year and a half ago, I found this shell printed vintage Lilly Pulitzer skirt in a consignment shop and instantly fell in love. It makes for the perfect summer outfit, especially when casually paired with a basic white t-shirt and sandals! Not only is it comfortable, but it makes you look extra put together and cool in the summer humidity.

It pairs perfectly with my go-to summer sandals! Everyone needs that perfect summer dress for day-to-day activities, polo matches, weddings and other events; this one is perfect! Fortunately, there is still plenty of Summer heading our way and there are a few of these dresses left on clearance, now with an extra 50% off… Get it while you still can!! It even comes in solid red, black, guava, blush, navy, cobalt, purple and emerald, but if you’re obsessed with the pink seersucker, it also comes in an adorable off the shoulder style!
