When I’m on vacation, I always like to pack items that I can just throw on and go. This Lilly Pulitzer Gigi Maxi was perfect for just that. Threw it on, added a hat, and voila – off we went. It is machine washable and has adjustable straps…and you can see it is full of color! Lots and lots of bright colors. But that’s one of the reasons I love it. I’m sure if you have followed me at all, you know what I’m going to say next. Yep. I got it on sale when I was in Charleston. 63 big smackers is all! Score!
I ventured into the mirrored sunglasses this summer too. I love these green Ray Bans. I think they are such a fun color!
In the first picture, that is one of our favorite horses to go and visit when we are in Hilton Head. Harley has lived at Lawton Stables for such a long time. If I remember correctly, he is actually a reject Budweiser Clydesdale because his coloring wasn’t what they wanted (crazy, right?!). When we take him carrots, we try to give a few to the ponies out there too, and he can be such a big bully. So we distract him so the ponies can get a few carrots too 🙂 We’ve seen the stables change so much over the years. It’s such a great facility. When my kiddos were little, they loved to go on pony rides. I was so sad when they were too big to get on the ponies. Check it out if you are ever on the island.
I discovered Jude Connally a few years ago in a local ATL boutique. I instantly fell in love with the fabric. It never wrinkles…and it’s machine washable. Such great pieces for traveling. I was lucky to find this Joy Off-the-Shoulder dress on sale this summer before I headed out to Hilton Head! It was such a great dress for the beach. You can also wear this dress with the sleeves pulled up.
If you wear them up though, be forewarned it makes the dress a lot shorter 🙂 It does look super cute this way too though. It would look super cute with wedges like the model has on, but I opted for an easy Jack Rogers Maci flat since I knew I would be walking around shopping. Can I also brag I got these on sale for almost 50% off?! I may like to shop, but I try and watch the dollar amount ALL the time. I love getting good deals if you haven’t noticed.
In the background, you’ll noticed the Salty Dog macaws they always have at their store in South Beach. These macaws have been there ever since I’ve been going there, which has been since the year 2000. We do a picture in front of these birds every single year. It’s so fun to go back and see how we’ve all changed over the years. But the birds have stayed the same. Ha!
Vacation to the beach = wearing Lilly Pulitzer! I picked up this adorable Kassia dress on sale when I was in Charleston this summer. I just love all of the bright colors. You definitely wouldn’t lose me if I was in the dark. You also can’t be afraid of color to wear this Playa Hermosa print 🙂 It’s super light weight and perfect for humid and hot weather. If you couldn’t tell, this was also at the beginning of our Hilton Head vacation when my spray tan looked fab! I always love how I leave for vacation tanner than when I come home. Beauty of a fake tan!
