I have been eying this dress and was excited to see it in person.
Ocean Blvd Strapless Dress in Vineyard Navy $165
Sadly I was between sizes, neither quite fit right. I will be anxiously awaiting the summer dress arrivals.
Westport is also home to other top shops. We popped in Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store Splash of Pink to see the new white dresses. The lace Reeve Dress was by far my #1 pick. No doubt this will be a popular graduation dress.

Reeve Dress in Classic White Papillon Lace $368
While at J.McLaughlin, not only did I see many things I desire but also learned that author Lisa Birnbach will be at the store for an upcoming True Prep book signing.

I went to a signing in New Canaan back in December, featured on my first everrrrr post. If you are in the area and haven't heard her speak you must go.... she is hilarious and truly brings the book to life with her anecdotes.
I snapped this photo of the store interior (is that allowed?) - wouldn't you love to sit here and have a drink?!
Back to shopping.
Elephant Medallion Pot $78
Too bad I don't really need this from Anthropologie. Whatever I put it in would probably die. However, I did find a sundress I will debut at a later date.
Among other places we also stopped at the mall. Of course I didn't come out of there empty handed...
Striped Tank Dress in Navy/Ivory $17.80
Printed Skirt w/ Belt in Cream/Black & Hot Pink/White $14.80
My purchases included these pieces from Forever 21. Yes, the store that is taking over malls across America. Unfortunately with their expansion and multi-level stores I don't find as many things as I used to, or maybe anything decent is harder to find among the mass? Floral printed jeans? No thanks. I also notice I am shopping alongside middle schoolers... so perhaps I am just growing up. Thoughts?
I envision wearing these skirts with a tank and wedges "down the shore" (Jersey!) this summer when I visit friends. I will likely be switching up the belt on the pink skirt to something besides black or removing the loops completely.
Phew, and those were just the highlights!
