hi everyone!!! today’s look was about creating a blank canvas to show off this fabulous new tote bag. last week i received an adorable care package from lilly pulitzer, and omg it brighten up my week in more ways than one!!
this palm reader beach tote bag is the first lilly pulitzer item i’ve ever owned (i know, i’m really lame), but it puts a smile on my face every time i use it. i would normally never pick something this bright and neon for myself, so it was great to step outside my comfort zone a little bit (i sound like someone is forcing me into a hazmat suit… seriously… it’s a cute tote bag i get to wear and look cute in #firstworldproblems). my favorite thing about this tote is that it’s actually roomy enough to fit all your beach essentials like towels, bottles of water, sunscreen, clothes and shoes. it’s well made and surprisingly lightweight. i feel like i’ll get great use out of it!
anyway, to highlight this bag’s explosive power of summer, i paired it with a white on white ensemble. i broke out my thrifted alice + olivia lace skirt from UAL and topped it off with a new sheer blouse from old navy that is lighter than a piece of tissue paper (a useful friend in 105 degree weather).
and for accessories, i went with bright colored tassel jewelry from baublebar. my favorite pieces are 1) the navy tassel earrings because they pick up on the navy swirls on the tote bag and 2) the pineapple bracelet because I have an unhealthy obsession with spongebob squarepants. if you are a 90s kid, you understand my illness. if you are a spongebob fan, my favorite episode is when patrick thinks he’s ugly, but really his breath just smells like hot garbage. on that note, stay cool out there guys and i’ll see ya in a few days!!
