I don’t typically post twice a day but had to get this post out as soon as possible! We visited Cape Cod a few weeks ago after the Vermont Wedding. In true Cape Cod fashion, I donned my favorite white Lilly Pulitzer dress for a date night out (for lobstah of course!). I originally bought this dress back in August of last year during Lilly Pulitzer’s After Party Sale for our wedding rehearsal dinner. It is my absolute favorite Lilly dress! The lace detail is so gorgeous. Lucky for you, the new version is on sale now and in stock in almost all sizes! It is the Raegan Fit & Flare Dress (here in patterned) with another all white totally similar option, the Sofia Lace Shift Dress (here), or the Sofia Lace Shift Dress in patterned (here). I find that the Raegan runs true to size (I’m in a size 0). I’m thinking I may need another one in the Multi Hibiscus Stroll print… All the dresses mentioned are currently going for $59 plus free shipping. Get your hands on one while you can, the sale ends Tuesday August 23rd!
A few days after the La Jolla Wedding we flew to Vermont for Ben’s cousin’s wedding. I originally had plans to wear a dress I brought with me from home but after a pit stop at Marshall’s to pick up some lotion I ended up with another dress. I loved the idea of wearing the new dress so much that I ended up wearing it for the wedding that afternoon! Talk about unexpected (coming from the OCD planner herself!). Luckily, all of the accessories I brought with me worked really well with the ($20!) dress, right down to the shoes and nail polish color. The reception was held at a beautiful Inn in Essex, VT that I was nudging Ben about going back to visit. Hopefully our next trip we’re able to spend a night or two there. We knew this would be a quick trip (arrive late Thursday evening, wedding Friday, hit the road Saturday morning) so it didn’t pan out for this visit but we’ll back soon. I can’t wait to wear the dress again in the fall with black tights, booties, and a chunky sweater. Or maybe with flats and a blazer for work. The options and color combinations with this one are endless! Apparently I wasn’t the only one that loved the dress because when we showed up to the reception one of the wedding coordinators was wearing the exact same dress. We both had a good laugh when she and I realized what we were both wearing 🙂
One of my very good friends was married on Sunday in a beautiful ceremony overlooking the ocean in La Jolla, CA. It was a wonderful evening with plenty of dinner, drinks and dancing. I picked up this adorable BCBG dress at their outlet store a few weeks back (for $49!!!!) and knew it would be perfect for the occasion. Enjoy!
