Happy Monday and I have to admit that I am a bit frantic today. I am leaving on a very fun trip for 8 days and as usual am behind on my blog posts. I have some great shots from my last photo shoot and an idea of what I want to write about but just keep running low on time. I have tried really hard to plan ahead as far as packing for this trip is concerned. We are going to 3 places and have different events at each one. I will keep you posted on Instagram but in the mean time I want to get some blogs written. I think I will keep these short and sweet – photos and a few key details for now. I want to give you some ideas for dressing for a beach wedding this summer.
I had so much fun shopping at Saint Bernard in Inwood Village. They have the largest selection of Lilly Pulitzer that I have ever seen. If you want to get ready for summer just take a little trip over to the store. I love color for summer and you will see lots of it in my next few posts. It just so happens that almost everything I decided to wear in this post is from Lilly. There are so many choices in dresses but I loved this one with the “cold shoulder” and drop sleeve. Love the indigo blue for the beach wedding and the tassel is right on trend. It is also available in a multi pink version and is sized XS-L. ($178)
Let’s talk about wanting to look really pulled to together at a beach wedding or any outdoor event for that matter where you don’t want to sink into the sand or grass. Short of wearing flip flops you must wear a wedge. I think this gold wedge from Lilly Pulitzer is just about the best I have seen. Love the combo of gold rope and cork. It will take you to every outdoor event without sacrificing wearing a little bit of a heel. It is very comfy and has a bit of a platform which always helps. ($198)
Of course you can’t go to a wedding on the beach without some stunning sunnies. I cannot believe the prices of these great looking reflective lenses from Quay!! Love the ocean blue mirrored lense and white frames. What could be more perfect for summer? ($55) Of course you already know that statement earrings are all the rage. I was so excited to find this perfect pair from Bauble Bar in Cobalt Blue. ($38)
I had to have some fun beachy accessories and love this little Lilly straw clutch with the colorful pompom and tassel trim!! You will carry this all summer and not just to the beach. It is also available with pink and yellow trim. ($118) Just a note, if you want the clutch you see in this post you will want to visit the store. And you always need to be prepared for the sun on the beach. This is the perfect straw hat and send off for the newlyweds!!! Bon Voyage!! ($96)
