Light & Easy Summer Style

Y'all this is one of my all-time favorite looks that I think I've ever showed here on the blog!
It's a combination of some of my favorite pieces that truly are perfect for obtaining that light and easy summer style.

It's no secret that I'm a huge Lilly Pulitzer fan and these Essie dresses are some of my favorites to wear because they're just so darn easy. They're a tank dress that easily stretches (peep the growing bump in that last shot!) and the dress is just so light and wearable.
I have two and took them both on our beach baby moon last weekend because they're perfect for hot days.

I'm a little shy about showing my arms (one of my least favorite features) on camera, so I thought why not break out this beautiful light, lace kimono as a coverup of sorts?
It's ideal because it doesn't add any additional weight, but just adds the right sort of covering to shield any worry zones.

Just touching really quick on the shoes I'm sharing today-they're my favorite sandals for summer & they're a dupe for a designer piece!
They may not last as long as their more expensive counterparts, but for only $19 I can afford to buy a new pair, wear them out, and then repurchase.

P.S. if you noticed that I'm actually not blindingly white in these photos, it's not because I tanned-it's because I've found my holy grail beauty product.
It's less than $15, a little goes the longest way, and it gives you the most beautiful glow with minimal effort (all wins in my book!)

I hope y'all enjoy the rest of this long weekend-let's celebrate that it's a long one!

Until next time. . .
