Tropical Turquoise

I’m extremely fickle when it comes to choosing a favorite color… it literally changes with the season. When summer rolls around, all I can see is turquoise. And I literally mean that all I can see is turquoise, because whenever I look in the mirror, that’s all I’m wearing. In fact, y’all have probably noticed this over the past couple of weeks (demonstrated by this, thisthis, this, and even this). I can’t even help it, it’s subconscious. If it’s some combination of turquoise and orange or turquoise and pink, I get even more excited. No wonder I love Lilly Pulitzer so much, I just love my bright tropical prints.

Today’s dress is… surprise, surprise… Lilly Pulitzer. This is my one go-to dress in my closet that I can never help putting on, no matter how many times I’ve worn it. I had a completely different, new outfit picked out for today’s shoot but when it came time to get dressed, I found myself putting this one on again. I’m pretty sure I wore it 3 times during vacation, despite having two giant suitcases stuffed with clothes. Anyone else have a piece like that?? I just can’t help it!!

But the REALLY exciting part of today’s OOTD is the necklace and earrings from Accessory Concierge. You probably know from reading my blog that I don’t wear a lot of statement jewelry… I’m usually a fan of a more delicate look, if I wear any jewelry at all. However, the second I saw this gold and turquoise Hop To It Collar, I was obsessed. For one thing, the colors are too perfect, and for another thing IT HAS A FROG ON IT. As someone who legitimately considered a career in herpetology as a small child, I would much rather wear a frog than a flower (although I do love my floral pieces too). It also seemed too perfect for visiting The Keys, especially paired with these gorgeous Marine Frost Drops. They matched the water perfectly! Accessory Concierge is one of my favorite places to shop for jewelry, as it has the trendiest pieces you would find at a larger jewelry retailer (you know exactly what I’m talking about) but at better prices. Can’t argue with that!!

And then I spotted a lizard… the lizard jumped from a tree into the camera bag… I got really excited… and my husband caught it all on camera. Maybe I should have been a herpetologist after all.

Jellies Be Jammin’

So were you wondering what I got during my afternoon of shopping at Lilly Pulitzer?? I tried to restrain myself because I know the Endless Summer Sale will be coming up soon, but I still walked out of the store with one new dress. If you follow along on Instagram, you’ll know that I got this racerback maxi, the perfect addition to my summer wardrobe!! I’ve been seriously crushing on this Jellies Be Jammin’ print, and I thought it was even more perfect seeing as I got a nice little jelly sting on my negligently dangling arm on this trip.

Sadly, I’m back in California now so I’ll just have to wear this number on repeat to take me back. It’s not really working so far, but I’ll keep you updated. Unfortunately, making the situation even worse is the fact that my husband got to go back to Georgia without me. Granted, he’s there for his job BUT STILL. Vacation ends and I get to come back to Southern California (which might as well be Mars to me) and he gets to go right from Florida to Georgia? Talk about rubbing salt in the wound! I’ve threatened him under pain of death that he absolutely can’t go to any of my favorite restaurants or places or enjoy himself at all while he’s there. I feel like it’s a totally rational and sane request.
