Hello there friends!
These shorts have been in my closet since the wonderful Lilly Pulitzer sale last summer. I have only been able to wear them a handful of times because winter lasts 8 months months of the year in Wisconsin, but I am so incredibly obsessed.
I’ve been watching the Lilly Pulitzer site like a hawk for you guys so I can clue you into their annual After Party Summer Sale, and GUESS WHAT! IT’S ALMOST HERE! August 22-23 is their huge sale, for more info click here. This message isn’t sponsored in anyway, I just can’t let you guys miss out on the sale of the season!
I have to show off my adorable cross body bag from Stella & Dot! My sister sells the accessories, and the moment I saw this on the website I ordered it right away. It’s been a lifesaver for my back because I would always overstuff my other purses. It fits my phone, plus some cash, ID, and some credit cards perfectly. I don’t have to worry about waking up with a sore back anymore! Haha!
I wore this when I went down to Summerfest for the day with my family. We went to go listen to the band Velocity. We wanted to hear them live because they’re the band Cristian and I booked for our wedding! (Follow the planning on Instagram, #VWwedding) We were having a tough time figuring out if we wanted a DJ or a live band. When we finally heard Velocity both of our jaws dropped, right at that moment we KNEW we needed to have them at our reception!
The sun was boiling down that day and I was worried that I would have a scalloped shorts line on my thighs, but luckily I escaped the day without any burns.
I have to tell you the story of my shoes! I was in Denver visiting my future in-laws with Cristian after school ended. Cristian and all the boys went camping in the mountains for a few days, and I planned a day out with the girls. I’m a huge dog lover, so when I noticed that the Denver Pet Expo was in town I knew that’s where we needed to head. The girls loved it, and so did I. Lots of dogs to pet in every shape and size, there was even a dog fashion show.
As we walked out of the building I noticed people carrying big bags filled to the brim with Toms. What? Where were they coming from??
Well, around the corner was the Tom’s Sample Sale. There were probably millions of shoes all in huge cardboard bins that were overflowing. This expo center was the promised land. Hundreds of dogs next door, and millions of shoes. Pure heaven.
I ended up grabbing a pair of new wedges since I left mine in London. (They were trashed so it’s okay.) These navy tennis shoes, a pair for my niece that are so incredibly itty bitty, and a pair of classic Toms for Cristian. He was a bit wary of them at first, but they’re slowly growing on him.
See, I told you this purse was adorable. If you want one, make sure you get it soon! It’s so cute I wouldn’t be surprised if it sold out.
I have a feeling that there is going to be some exciting things happening on Instagram soon, so if you’re not following me make sure you look up @sequinandchic and follow me to stay updated!
That’s all for now 🙂 Look for another post tomorrow, Small Business Sunday is almost here!
