A New Path

So the other day I got up early (because our fire-alarm batteries were going out and the dang thing wouldn't stop chirping) and decided to take early morning outfit pictures. They came out so well that I'm using them as my graduation announcement pictures! I loved the background that I happened upon and the lighting was literally perfect... (I love it when that happens) :)






Top: Lilly Pulitzer \\ Jeans: J.Crew Factory \\ Bracelets: Kohls & Old Navy \\ Necklace: J.Crew Factory \\ Shoes: Old Navy (Similar)

As much as I love perusing the website and considering all the little trinkets and accessories I have, I can't believe this is my first actual clothing item from Lilly. I got it at a boutique over break with my mother and I love it, it's super versatile and classic. I guess it's because I hate ordering online (which is probably odd considering my generation grew up with internet) but I like to be able to touch and feel what I'm buying and try it on. Also, I'm totally an impulse shopper, if I order online I have time to think through my purchase and I don't like to wait for it...so more often than not I'll decide I don't really need it (which is probably a good thing for my bank account). I sure do hope there's a Lilly store nearby in Dallas so I can grow my collection this summer! :D

Which do you prefer? Online shopping or shopping in store?

  1. I absolutely love white jeans... they are so classic. Looks great with that top! I'm definitely an in-person shopping girl :)

    1. Thanks! I know right? It's way more fun to make an affair out of it ;)

  2. That shirt is too cute! It goes perfectly with your white jeans! I love online shopping because I love receiving packages, but honestly, nothing is better than in person!

  3. Love the outfit! It's not fair how amazing you look first in the morning. Regardless of how much I sleep, I can't seem to put myself together before 11am :P But I'm an avid online shopper. I hate being in malls with herds of people coughing and sniffling, and children screaming at the top of their lungs while their moms continue to try on shoes. But it is always fun being able to wear something the day you buy it!

    1. It was because I got woken up at 6am by the stupid fire alarm! Haha! I had to pull myself together or lay in bed and go crazy! Totally agree with the people thing, that's the downside to shopping in person...I'm just very impatient! Thanks for stopping by :)

  4. I just stumbled across your blog and can say that I'm officially in love with it! I love your fun and classic style! This outfit is adorable! And I totally agree with your internet vs. in store shopping preference, I like being able to get a feel for the clothes and I'm a total impulse buyer, too haha! :)
