Oh My Guava…

Two days after the After Party Sale, this adorable dress was delivered to my door and has been worn over five times already. I couldn’t be more in love. It’s not only light and comfortable, but has the most adorable print (oh my guava)! The dress is perfect for a day running from class to class, playing tourist or lounging around my dorm. It’s a flattering cut; fitted on top and flowy at the bottom.  While this APS purchase arrived swiftly, I’m still waiting on one more package. Fingers crossed it arrives soon!

Happy September! Summer is winding down and it’s only a matter of time before the season of Fall is upon us. Just this morning, it was fifty five degrees. Because of the gradually dropping temperatures, I have been reaching for my white jeans more often than not and looking for the perfect weather appropriate top to pair them with. This gingham one is perfect for the in-between season we’re experiencing right now. It’s light and off the shoulder, perfect for Summer, while providing one sleeve of coverage, perfect for Fall. I’m obsessed with the adorable ruffle details! Because I can’t get enough navy gingham, I paired the top with some matching block heel sandals to complete my look.

Dahlias and Lilly

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.
