There Is Still Time For Summer Brights!


Happy Friday Eve! I cannot believe another week is coming to an end and that we are almost halfway through August! I mentioned in yesterday's post that I was having serious season confusion this week. But, I think this bright Lilly Pulitzer number is a great reminder that there is still time to break out those brights!






Lilly Pulitzer has been one of my favorite brands since I was younger -- all the bright colors and fun prints, it's like instant happiness! I will confess though that this is the first Lilly dress I've purchased in awhile. I haven't been entirely pleased with the fit of a lot of the dresses in the past 3 or 4 years -- most of them were way too short for me. But since I was heading to Charleston, the quintessential Lilly town, I decided to try on a few of their dresses. The classic shift has always been my favorite, so when I saw this dress with the bright and bold print, I knew I had to try it on. I instantly fell in love with the print, fit and that cute palm tree exposed zipper. The dress fit true to size and was finally the perfect length {#tallgirlproblems}. Gold was the accessory color of choice which complimented the print and the zipper details perfectly.

Thanks so much for dropping by, friends! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? I am super excited because we are going to the MY2K Tour this weekend featuring 98 Degrees and my favorite boy band of all time, O-Town!! My husband says it's going to be an audience full of former teeny bopper girls who are now in their late 20s HAHA! Regardless, I am ecstatic. I'll be sure to post some video on Snapchat {rach.mccarthy7} so you can follow along :) Have a fabulous weekend!

  4. The dress is really pretty on you . I have to admit I'm not a fan of the brand simply because I like darker colors and simple patterns , but lately it has been growing on me
