Happy 4th!

Hey y’all! I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday! I just came in from brunch at 82 Queen and a bit of shopping/strolling down King Street. It’s such a nice day out and everyone’s extremely festive. I saw a guy in American flag printed shorts, a white button down, and an American flag bow tie–his commitment to a theme and a holiday are unparalleled! 

After all our city has been through lately, it’s nice to see everyone out and about still being generally friendly and happy. On a personal note, I’d been obsessing over Lilly lately. Lilly who? Lilly Pulitzer, of course. I’d always appreciated it in passing, but after I was somehow (and I still don’t know how the hype took over me) swept up in the Lilly for Target pandemonium–I’ve been in love ever since. 

I really REALLY wanted one particular dress and after stalking and stalking and weighing the pros and cons, I decided to finally get it. You know what happened when I hit refresh on that idle Safari tab? They were sold clean out of the darn dress in my size 😩! 

  
The closest Lilly retailers to me are the Belk’s in Mt Pleasant and a Palm Avenue store on King Street. The actual Lilly Pulitzer store is in Kiawah and I’m just not driving that far on a beach holiday. Nope, not gonna do it. I’m just going to wait and see if they do the ‘still want it?’ option after they’ve sold out completely. But on the bright side, I needed a new wallet/cell phone wristlet and I walked away with this:

  
That’s right, $15.20 and it holds my phone, cards, and has an outside ID holder. Right up my alley in efficiency and price! So, something nice came out of this day and it’s something to be grateful for. I think I’m going to wrap this up with an obligatory OOTD pic.

  
Forever 21 is where I got the cream colored v-neck t-shirt, heart lariat (necklace), and sandals. The boyfriend shorts are from GAP
