Summer In Lilly: July 4th Weekend

Summer in Lilly 1Happy Monday, loves! Having a bit of a “back to reality” moment here after the July 4th long weekend. Feeling much more rested though and so ready to tackle the 2nd half of my internship!

I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the 4th this year–a much needed weekend getaway staying at a B&B, exploring one of the cutest beach towns of New Jersey!

Summer in Lilly 2I am pretty much in love with Cape May now and plan to make this trip an annual tradition. All of the Victorian style houses with their gingerbread moldings were so adorable! I pretty much had to stop every 10 seconds to snap a photo…as you very well see on my Instagram feed. >.<

Summer in Lilly 3Spending the fourth there was absolutely fabulous! The whole town was so festive and patriotic–I was glad that I’d packed this printed Lilly dress to be able to wear for all the festivities. I’m not a huge fan of the Americana trend, but I definitely wanted to give off an “American Pride” sort of vibe.

Summer in Lilly 12We ended up bundled on the beach to watch the fireworks that evening. I have to admit, seeing all the little kids with their glow-in-the-dark sticks and pretty sparklers made me a little nostalgic…thinking of those simple and easy summer nights. What did you guys end up doing this July 4th? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy styling fashionistas,
