Even though I’ve been sick for a couple of days, I’ve been soaking up every last bit of summer, and one of my favorite ways to do that is by wearing some fab Lilly shorts! Some of you might remember these fun shorts from my Instagram post (@MsVictoriaAR) celebrating my last day of being a teenager. These shorts were just crying out to be paired with confetti!
I had been nervous to buy a pair of Lilly shorts because I wasn’t sure how they would fit, or which model I would like. During the After Party Sale however, I finally took a leap of faith and got two pairs of buttercup shorts!
The first ones I got were in Pink Colony (be on the lookout for a post about those very soon!) and I actually hadn’t seen this pair my first time around. My mom and I had decided to divide and conquer, and she asked me if I had seen, “the flamingo shorts.” I was confused, since she knew that I had bought another pair, but when she sent me a screenshot, I was ecstatic! I love the print, “All Nighter,” and actually preferred it in a pair of shorts rather than the shift since it is a larger pattern.
I paired these happy little shorts with my breezy and comfy yellow H&M tank, Jacks, and this absolutely adorable Kendra Scott necklace!!

To a preppy girl, summer means one thing: LILLY! I’ve already talked about my love of Lilly, but now it’s time to talk about where all that Lilly comes from. My first Lilly purchase was during the After Party sale! I woke up early and was able to snag an adorable shift.
Although I adore the After Party sale, it’s hard for me to wait six months between Lilly splurges. I considered buying some full priced items, but it just isn’t in my budget to spend that much money on clothes that are pretty casual. When I made my first visit to T.J Maxx, I found an adorable Lilly case and a vineyard vines belt. They were each only five dollars!
From that moment, I was hooked! Although there are always great deals, my latest find at TJ Maxx takes the cake! I happened to find this cute strapless top in the clearance section for (wait for it…) TWELVE DOLLARS. I had sticker shock in the best was possible!
I wore this fun little number with jeans to the Premios Juventud and my nude Vince Camuto pumps, which were a steel at just under thirty bucks! For a nice brunch, I would pair this top with white jeans, wedges, and my beautiful baby pink Kate Spade bag.
Another fun way to style this top for a more casual look, like sightseeing (or shopping the After Party sale!!) is by throwing your hair up into a braided ponytail, and pairing it with white shorts and a pair of Jacks!
What’s the best deal you’ve found this summer? –PS
