Did anyone else shop the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale last week? I did, and I was able to get most of the items that were on my list!!! One of the items I was shopping for is this Lilly Pulitzer Essie dress in Minty Fresh Fansea (I also got a tee in the print). I found it for just under $40, plus an extra 10% off, on Sadly, this dress is back up to normal pricing of $98, but I linked it below just in case you decided you couldn’t live without it. You can still find some Lilly items for sale on

Dress: Lilly Pulitzer via // Cardigan: Gap Factory (similar) // Earrings: J. Crew Factory–same, but different color (matching necklace) // Necklace: J. Crew Factory (similar; matching earrings// Satchel: Coach // Sandals: Lilly Pulitzer
Kentucky is soooo hot right now!  We’re still experiencing scorching temperatures, so I am taking full advantage and getting in some last chance summer pieces. This Lilly Pulitzer Essie dress is sleeveless, so I can wear it sans cardigan now.  As the temperatures start to cool down, I’ll still be able to get some mileage out of it by tossing on a cute cardigan. Layers are my best friend when the weather starts to transition to fall.
Also, if you’re a Lilly Pulitzer fan, I highly recommend getting some iridescent jewelry to pair with your Lilly pieces! Iridescent jewelry pairs well with the colorful Lilly patterns.  It also wears well with just about everything else in your closet.  I’ve linked a bunch of iridescent pieces from J. Crew Factory above so that you can find something that works for you.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  

Nice to meet you!
