A Lilly Girl is a Happy Girl

You Gotta Regatta is back!!!! I know the internet has been freaking out since the news leaked but today our dreams became reality! Screen Shot 2016-06-15 at 1.15.47 PM.png

Now I get that not every one is as crazy or as obsessed with YGR as some (i.e. me) but this will always be one of my favorite prints. It is the print that started my Lilly obsession. Now I was into the preppy look but Lilly just seemed like a southern/ sorority girl thing to me and not something I, a girl from Boston, could pull off. Then someone gave me a YGR phone case as a present. I was hooked. I not only fell in love with YGR but the Lilly brand, its history, its message. Lilly girls are the happiest girls, life is a party so dress like it, anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink!

If YGR isn’t your thing I will understand but here are the pictures of the new pop up print! I got the Captains popover and the Melle dress. My sister (thank the lord we are the same size) got the Ritz romper and the Rylan dress, so we will be sharing at some point in the future! Happy shopping friends!

Somewhere North of Augusta

Growing up in the city people have often accused me of not having a proper appreciation for nature. It is true that I love the city and I really can’t imagine living anywhere else. But sometimes you just need to get away and enjoy some peace and quiet. Nothing better than heading north to Maine, so far up there my cellphone barely works and there is no wifi. I’m serious there is no wifi anywhere up there! My boyfriend has an amazing cabin north of Augusta right on the lake and we love going up for the weekend to relax and enjoy some quiet.

We didn’t have the best weather but we made the most of it. I got in some reading on Saturday and then we went out to dinner at the cute little cafe in town. The cafe is normally only open for breakfast and lunch but they were doing a special dinner with a local band this weekend so we went and checked it out and had a great time!

I may not be the first to suggest a hike through the woods but I appreciate time in nature, I probably take the city for granted more than I do nature. I’ve spent my whole life in the city that I’m sure there are times when I don’t realize all the opportunities and experiences that are available to me because of it. So when I get the chance to go spend a little time in the woods I actually really love it.

Saturday was a little over cast and chilly!

Dresses I love this Summer

Growing up I was all about quantity over quality, I would take 100 dollars to forever21 and get 10 dresses that would fall apart after one wash. But as I get older I realize that I would much rather spend that 100 dollars on one dress that I will be able to use forever. I love Nordstrom, I think it is a great company that stands behind their products and if you ever have an issue with a product you purchase there they will make it right.

It may not be officially summer yet according to the weather but with Memorial Day behind us it is time to start celebrating the good weather! With summer there always seems to be weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, pool parties and back yard cookouts. I love dresses in the summer I own a lot of shorts but I am just more comfortable in a dress, especially when its 88 degrees and humid out! Here  are a few of my favorite dresses at Nordstrom right now that will be perfect for almost any occasion this summer!
