Shopping for a cause - is there literally any better way to feel validated about a shopping problem? No, there isn’t; I’d know, I’m always looking for a reason.
The Arthritis Foundation hosts a Jingle Bell 5k every winter and to celebrate Christmas in July they work with the lovely ladies of Lilly Pulitzer to showcase fall fashions and raise money for this wonderful organization.
So, what’s hot for fall? Summer. Lilly’s been extending summer since 1959 and today is no different. It’s all about working summer pieces into transition or putting a focus on vacation planning for the cooler months with their unbelievable resort collection.

Now, I’m usually more of a leather and moto-boot kind of gal, but their boho prints translate to serious hippie-chic and for summer, and that’s everything and more. I try my best to rock a tan like Princess Jasmine and channel 1970’s Cher, my ultimate fashion icon - so summer sun and Lilly help fulfill that mission perfectly.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I had a rockin’ few days in Memphis, Tennessee celebrating a bride-to-be a few weekends ago. I have to say, never on my own would I have said to myself ‘I CAN’T WAIT TO SPEND ALL OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY ON A MEMPHIS VACATION!’ that being said, I’m glad my girlfriend that I love dearly is so Elvis and Southern Culture obsessed. Because I did in fact, spend all my hard earned money on a Memphis vacation, and it was pretty bad ass.
This feels like the most ridiculous and vain blog post I’ve ever written, and that’s saying a lot - I mean I post a gratuitous amount of crop top photos, share all things about my life, and waste your time talking about celebrities in thong bikinis.
BUT WAIT! There’s more. I Botox’ed my forehead two weeks ago. I pumped that sucker full of some sort poison you get from canned foods and it is straight paralyzed. I would be 100% lying if I told you :
A. I didn’t love it
B. I didn’t spend even more time in front of the mirror than I already do, except now I just try really freaking hard to move my eyebrows ( spoiler, I can’t).
GUYS. There is another soccer game today and we’re celebrating America’s birthday on Friday. If we win this game, America wins the week. The only thing that could be better? If Graham Zusi actually sees this outfit post and immediately hits the road to CLE to swoop me up into his strong, beautiful, tan arms. (Kidding, JPC’s arms are the only arms for me) but, SWOOONNNN.
