A Very Preppy Date Night


If there was one designer I never thought I would wear, Lilly Pulitzer would be it. As a girl that only recently embraced any color other than black, white, and certain shades of grey, Pulitzer’s designs are foreign to me. Unfortunately, head to toe black for a summer date night is not really an option.

I love the fun of going out, but not necessarily the prep. This is where a summer dress comes in, because it’s as easy as day to night. I’ve mentioned my beloved white Birkenstocks before, but they make the perfect day shoe. Before dinner, I switched into nude wedges and added a fun clutch.

Sometimes, accessories can be as simple as glowing skin and a simple piece of jewelery. I might be able to help you out with that, because you can check out my Instagram and enter to win a HUGE giveaway haul. May the odds be ever in your favor!

The Perfect Day To Night Dress


There really aren’t a lot of things better than a piece of clothing that makes you look and feel your best. With a change of clothes, my day can take a turn for the better. During the summer, that means rotating my favorite sun dresses day to day for a polished but easy look. Luckily, there is never a shortage of updated styles for a fresh new look.

I am not a fan of changing outfits multiple times in one day, so if I can get away with wearing the same thing to go meet friends for dinner or grab drinks with my boyfriend, I will. The key to taking a dress from day to night, are your accessories. Pair a dress during the day with white Birkenstocks, and switch it up at night with a pair of nude wedges.

I found the perfect day to night dress while in Georgia, at Lily Pulitzer. I opted for the dark blue version to stay simple, but it also comes in hot pink. The fabric is very light and won’t feel heavy in the heat. The slip is a little bit shorter than the lace material on the outside, showing a little bit of leg at the end.

Not Athletic? Not A Problem.


Athletic clothing has been a constant staple in fashion for as long as anyone can remember. Just because you don’t play a sport, does not mean you can’t pretend. After all, everyone looks cute in a little white tennis dress.

Over the last few years, I’ve taken to collecting Lacoste tennis dresses. They’re easy to throw on with flats or sandals, wick away sweat from the heat because of the fabric, and don’t get too heavy or irritating because they’re meant to be light and airy. Pretty much the perfect combo for hot summer days.

In the past few runway seasons, we have seen designers take a turn back to old school styling with uber preppy looks. Bright polos with golf skirts, sweater sets, neoprene matching sets. You can get the look for a fraction of the cost, and never look back on photos thinking “Oh I wore that?!”

Spring Wishlist: J.Crew

According to me, spring and summer are all about bright colors, flowing sun dresses, and over sized oxfords thrown on with shorts and leather sandals. J.Crew seems to be on the same brain wave as I am, because I could live in their whole collection once the warm weather rolls around and be completely happy. One thing that I love about J.Crew, is the quality. While it might be pricey at times, I still wear the pieces that I have from them three years ago, and mix and match them with my recent purchases. These are the pieces that I’ll be working into my spring and summer wardrobe as soon as it hits 60 degrees:
