My Favorite OTS Top (Under $10!!)









TOPRue 21 (on sale for under $10!) // SHORTSNordstrom // BAGLilly Pulitzer // SANDALSMarleylilly // EARRINGSBaublebar // BRACELETDavid Yurman // RINGKendra Scott

Happy Friday!! This past week has been crazy hectic, so I am finally now just getting a long overdue post up! 

I wore this adorable off the shoulder top (which is now under $10!) in Palm Beach, and I have to say... it's one of the more comfortable OTS tops I own.  It's super soft and doesn't ride up on my shoulders like a lot of those tops do... for under $10, it's definitely a steal! Also, can we talk about how amazing this Lilly Pulitzer beaded clutch is?!  It was SO popular that it pretty much sold out immediately, but I am really hoping it comes back in stock... I will let you know if it does! The beadwork on this clutch makes it look super expensive, and I really love the fun color fringe detailing. I also love, love these monogrammed sandals from Marleylilly.  The pineapple decal is so adorable, and they are under $40... the perfect sandals for summer!!

I hope everyone has a fabulous, long, Memorial Day weekend! xoxo

Casual Bow Back Dress & Lemon Clutch








DRESS: Shein // WEDGES: Marc Fisher // CLUTCH: Charming Charlie // SUNGLASSES: BP. // WATCH: Timex // BRACELET: David Yurman // EARRINGS: Baublebar // RING: Kendra Scott

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend.  It was super nice in Chicago, so I was happy to be able to brunch on the patio and celebrate Mother's day with my boyfriends family.  This week is supposed to get into the high 80's and I couldn't be more excited to finally be able to wear dresses and shorts instead of bundling up in layers everyday.

Speaking of dresses, I recently got this adorable bow back dress from Shein, and have already worn it on repeat. The material is super comfy and lightweight, so even though it has sleeves, it's perfect for the warmer temps.  I love the little bow detailing on the back and the stripe hem... and the best part is, this dress is under $20! Can you believe it?! If you're looking for a cute, casual and comfy dress- this is definitely one to score for such an affordable price.  I paired this dress with this clutch from Charming Charlie, because how cute is that little lemon print?! I knew immediately that I'd be using this clutch all summer long, it's just so much fun and makes me so happy!!  The clutch is only $25 and fits just about all the essentials including my giant iPhone 6+!

I hope everyone has a great day, xoxo

Floral Print Two-Piece









TWO PIECEAli & Jay (Same print in dress form HERE) // BAGCharming Charlie // SHOESJeffrey Campbell // SUNGLASSESBP. // EARRINGSBaublebar // WATCHTIMEX // BRACELETDavid Yurman

Happy Friday eve!  I feel like this week has gone SO slow, so i'm super excited that the weekend is almost here!!  I wore this two piece a couple weeks ago and got so many compliments.  The floral print is even prettier in person, and it's so comfy for a day of running around or a summer party.  It's also super lightweight, so it's perfect for a hot summer day.   I am also in love with this dress, in the same print!  I got introduced to Ali & Jay when I was at Fashion week last fall, and they have easily become one of my favorite designer, plus they sell the line at Nordstrom!

I also scored this adorable little cross body bag from Charming Charlie (currently on sale for under $10!) and love the jeweled detailing.  It's on the smaller side, but it's perfect for days when you don't want to carry around a ton of un-necessary things! I like to use it when I just want to carry around my iPhone... it fits perfect.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! xoxo

Bright Blue Lilly











DRESSLilly Pulitzer (also, HERE) // BAGChanel // SANDALSJack Rogers // SUNGLASSESRay Ban // RINGKendra Scott // BRACELETDavid Yurman // EARRINGSKendra Scott

Happy Monday, everyone! As you can see, I instantly become in love with this adorable Lilly Pulitzer dress because of the vibrant colors and the lightweight feel.  I wore this dress in Florida and it's absolutely perfect for the 90 degree weather, as it's super flowy and breathable.  My favorite part of the dress has to be the bright green tassels and the slits in the sleeves... it's just such a fun dress and perfect for summer.

Also, can we talk about this #dreambag from Trendlee? Trendlee is absolutely my favorite shop for finding like new designer bags for a great price.  They have everything from Chanel to YSL to Louis Vuitton, which is pre-owned but still in excellent condition.  I love this classic quilted bag because I truly believe it will never go out of style and is such a timeless piece.  It also holds all the essentials and is the perfect size!

Lastly, I couldn't complete this outfit without a good pair of Jack Rogers.  The classic style is my favorite because they go with everything and come in just about every color you can imagine.  The ones I am wearing are the "bone" color and are perfect for dressing up and down.  You honestly can't go wrong without a couple pairs of Jack's in your closet-- you'll wear them all summer long, I promise!

I hope everyone has a great Monday, xoxo!

The Perfect Summer Dress...












DRESSTarget // SHOESMarc Fisher // BAGDSW // EARRINGSBaublebar // SUNGLASSESBP.

With summer just around the corner (17 days to be exact), I've started stocking up on some fun dresses to live in all summer long.  I recently came across this one from Target and it's under $30!  The material is really nice and makes it seem like it's more expensive than it actually is.  I was really drawn to the uneven hem and the bell sleeves on this one, as well as the fun navy pattern.  I don't usually gravitate towards navy items, so I was excited to step out of my colorful comfort zone for this one.  I want to mention, that when I wore this on my instagram a few days ago, I got a couple questions about whether or not the material is thick enough and not see through... and the answer is yes! It's not a super thick material, however you definitely couldn't see anything through it, and I was in the sun all day while wearing it. I've also been living in these wedges lately, which were sold out for a really long time, but now are back in stock- so shop fast!  They are extremely comfortable and make your legs look instantly longer!

Does anyone have anything fun planned for the weekend? I am hoping to binge on some taco's for Cinco de Mayo and hopefully have a low-key weekend! xoxo

Lilly Pulitzer Dress & Palm Beach Travel Guide!








DRESSLilly Pulitzer // SHOESJeffrey Campbell // BAGDSW // EARRINGSBaublebar // SUNGLASSESBP. // BRACELETDavid Yurman // WATCHTimex // RINGKendra Scott

Happy Monday, everyone! I wore this Lilly Pulitzer dress last week in Florida, and I have to say it's the perfect warm weather dress! It's super light weight and flowy-- perfect for those high 80's they've been having down south! I would recommend sizing down in this dress, I usually am a small but went for the XS in this because it's a lot looser.  This dress is on the pricier side, but it's absolutely perfect for a summer wedding or bbq, so in my opinion it's worth a little splurge.  I've also been carrying around this super cute clutch I picked up from DSW recently and because it's a pretty nude color, it pretty much goes with every outfit and it fits a ton!

As promised, I wanted to give you guys some ideas if you're ever planning on going to Palm Beach! I've been going down to Florida since I've been little and Palm Beach is definitely on my must-go list.

Favorite drawing courtesy of Lilly Pulitzer:



EATS:

Testa's Palm Beach- the food here is INSANE, plus the patio is perfect for people watching and taking in the nice PB breeze! (Tip: order the Crabmeat omelet during brunch, it's amazing!!)


Palm Beach Grill- This dinner only place is a little more upscale, but definitely worth it. It's more of a modern staple in PB but the food, especially the ahi-tuna burger really hits the spot!

Renatos- One of my favorite patios, ever!  I went here for the first time with the Lilly Pulitzer team last year and had an absolutely amazing meal.  The outside patio makes you feel like you're in another country and the food/wine is out of this world!  If you do go, make sure to reserve a table outside!

Echo Palm Beach- This place is perfect if you're looking for asian-fusion, as they have amazing sushi! It's a super contemporary atmosphere with an amazing cocktail selection.

STAY:

The Breakers- This is by far the best resort on the island as it almost makes you feel like you're in another country, not in Florida.  The grounds are absolutely breathtaking, not to mention their are 4 different pools!

The Brazilian Court Hotel- This boutique hotel is super close to Worth Ave. (where all the high end shopping is- also super close to Renatos!)  The interior is spanish colonial and offers a gorgeous terrace filled with palm trees and fountains... definitely instagram worth if you ask me!! They also have Lilly Pulitzer inspired bikes, if you're up for a bike ride around the island.

Eau Palm Beach- I've actually never stayed here, but it's next on my list.  This hotel is set right along the ocean and the rooms are absolute #goals.  If you've ever stayed here, I'd love to hear how you liked it!!

TO DO:

The Botanical Gardens- Open to the public 7 days a week


Flagler Museum- This is a must see! It's a 75 room old Mansion thats been turned into a museum for the public. It's absolutely gorgeous!

Beach Bikes- Rent a bike or scooter to cruise around the island!

Let me know if you have any other recommendations!! xoxo
