A Pop of Pink with Lilly Pulitzer

Kate Spade pink purse

Today’s post features one of my favorite purchases of the summer (originally seen here), which I’ve probably already mentioned before. It’s perfect for just about every occasion. And it’s pink, so enough said. Lilly dress Cathy Shift Coral Shift Dress Coral Shift Dress Summer in LillySummer in Lilly

I’m seriously considering taking this to the beach in a couple of weekends. The coral print is perfect for the beach and summer. I have yet to see the sand and ocean yet this summer, so I’m definitely looking forward to it. Now I just need the next two weeks to go by quickly!

Before I sign off, I need your help with a purchasing decision. I’m contemplating getting the Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.B. Tote. I’ve wanted it for a while, but I can’t decide what color to get. I really liked this color, but I feel like it’s not good for fall. And, I also really like this plum color. I want it to be a handbag I can get a lot of use out of since it’s pricier. If you have any recommendations, PLEASE let me know!

Have a great week!

    Loving the lilly print! One of my favorites that season. In regards to the handbag, I would go with a color that works for both fall and spring since this purse is a little bit of a splurge! You will probably get more use out of it. But the lighter color one that you loved would work for spring / summer / a little bit of fall so that is a good pick too!

    Happy monday!

      Thanks for your help, Elizabeth! It’s so hard. I still haven’t made up my mind, although I’m leaning towards the plum color. We shall see. Hope you had a great day!
