Officially Summer

Y'all it's summer. Like, officially. 

That means more pool days and it becoming increasingly more difficult to keep my hair straight during the day-- the heat and humidity in South Louisiana are nothing to take lightly. (P.S. that's why I wore my hair in it's "natural" state for this post)

In case you missed it, yesterday was the official start of summer and National Wear Your Lilly Day--but let's be real, every day is the perfect day to wear Lilly. And lately, I've been so obsessed with this skort!

  14. I'm totally with you on the hair thing! My hair turns into frizzy mess when it's hot and humid outside no matter how much time I spend trying to straighten it. I usually will wear it curled or in some sort of braid to help.

    Happy Summer :)
