In My Summer Bag

A Lacey Perspective: In My Summer Bag

When Starbucks asked me to share what was inside my summer bag I was so excited! It has been quite some time since I’ve shared what’s in my bag, and in the summer I carry less but make sure I have added the summer essentials.

1. A Koozie – This is key to carry in the summer. You never know when you may be at an impromptu rooftop bbq or attend a last minute baseball game.

2. Red Lip & Sparkle – This is also for those last minute events that pop up. Adding a red lip and something sparkly can up the game of even jeans and a tee.

3. Headphones – If you live in a walking town like I do you know that headphones are a key component to making your commute more bearable. Plus I am still madly in love with my Frends Headphones so I use them every chance I get.

4. Oversized Sunnies – For the morning after said rooftop bbq or baseball game you will need the largest sunnies you have to help that hangover slip away while you are commuting in the summer sun.

5. Caffeine – I have said it once, and I will say it again, my love for Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee knows no bounds. Especially in the summer it is rare you would see me without one.

Am I missing any essentials I need in my summer bag? What do you have in your bag today?

Have a great weekend! xo

A Lacey Perspective: Lilly (& Giveaway)

I was never really a big Lilly Pulitzer fan (I know… bad sorority girl).

When Westfield Montgomery asked me to style one of their favorite summer brands, Lilly Pulitzer, I was a bit hesitant but then I came across this gorgeous maxi dress off in a colorful corner of the Lilly store. You all know how I feel about my maxi dresses, so clearly it was love at first sight.

The cut is unbelievably flattering, the fabric is light and the umbrella print is so unexpected! I have fallen so madly in love with Lilly for summer that I had to make sure my readers can get some of their own!
