***Prayers for everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey. I pray that God keeps everyone safe.  All of this destruction is just so sad.***

I can’t believe it’s finally time for the August 2017 Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale! My local Lilly store, the Peppermint Palm, actually started their pre-sale on Saturday.  I stopped by and found several items that had to come home with me (sorry, Chauncey), including these shorts. In addition to today’s outfit, I’m also sharing my favorite finds from the sale.  If you see something you like, click quickly, because everything usually sells out fast.

Top: Target (similar, similar) // Shorts: Lilly Pulitzer // Flip-flops: Lilly Pulitzer–on sale under $20 Earrings: Sugarfix via Target // Handbag: Rebecca Minkoff //Necklace: Kate Spade New York // Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington–save 15% w/ promo code BRIGHTONABUDGET //  Link bracelet: J. Crew Factory c/o The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass // Cuff bracelet: J.Crew Factory  // Sunnies: Quay Australia

When I saw these Callihan Shorts in Hey Bay Bay, I knew I had to have them! I have shied away from the Callihans in the past because of the 5″ inseam, but I really liked the look of these. The cobalt blue paired with the white and neons makes for an eye-catching pattern. I snagged these for 60% off at my Lilly store, but remember that prices will vary depending on where you look.

I added a white eyelet lace button-up.  Adding a solid white top is a great way to allow bold patterns to shine. Plus, it gives everything a clean look. I also kept my most of my jewelry simple. The exception, however, is these bold earrings from Sugarfix that Kane picked out for me. Mixed media jewelry is all the rage right now.

Any my flip flops are on sale too:)

Have you been unable to access the Lilly Pulitzer website for the After Party Sale 2017, or found things sold out? Here are a bunch of my favorite picks from other websites.  Please note prices are subject to change and not all colors/sizes are on sale or priced the same.

    Love the shorts with this top! And I wouldn’t have guessed the inseam was so long, I’m not big on the 5″ usually either.
