Midsummer Bloom

This trip to Victoria was my first time traveling to Canada which was super exciting! 
During the first full day in Victoria my family and I visited the beautiful Butchart Gardens. I would definitely recommend visiting these amazing gardens if you are ever in Victoria! I loved visiting all the blooms and was giddy when I saw so many Hydrangeas which are one of my favorite flowers! I was in awe with how many flowers were in the gardens, it was magical! I can't imagine how much water it takes to keep them all alive! I decided to wear my all time favorite Lilly Pulitzer Holy Grail dress, the Briella in Southern Charm. It was the perfect thing to wear to the gardens with its floral print! I paired it with my J crew pearl necklace,  Jacks, and an adorable ribbon. 
Check back soon to see what I did next!

Anchors Away

I just got back from a great trip to Seattle and Victoria and thought it would be so fun to share it with y'all! I love to travel and I'm so thankful to be able to do it as much as I do!

To start off the trip, my family and I flew into Seattle and then took a Ferry ride over to Victoria, Canada. The sunset was beautiful and the weather was perfect especially compared to the southern heat and humidity! Once we arrived in Victoria (which by the way was gorgeous), we headed to dinner and the hotel after a long day of travel. 

Stay tuned for the rest of this trip coming to the blog throughout the week!

Gracie in Prep Turns 1!

Happy 1st Birthday Gracie in Prep!
I can't believe it has been a year since I started Gracie in Prep! It's so crazy to me how much the blog and I have grown in just 1 year! It all started a year ago today with my very first post where I talked about my Vineyard Vines super sale purchases. I am so blessed and so thankful for everything I've been able to achieve in just my 1st year! I'm still shocked that I reached 100,000 views on Gracie in Prep last week! I have truly enjoyed being able to share with y'all my style, travels, and Disney obsession!

I want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me this year! I'm so excited to see where this next year will take Gracie in Prep! 

I thought it would be fun to have a celebration in honor of my Blogging Birthday so of course it had to be a Lilly themed Tea Party! My adorable younger sister, Lillie, also joined the party and we celebrated with some delicious jumbo cupcakes. I definitely lucked out during Lilly for Target and was able to score some super cute things which I used for the celebration!














I also wanted to share with y'all some of my favorite posts from this wonderful 1st year of blogging!
Here are my 8 favorite posts of all time:

Disneyland Forever

In honor of Disneyland's 60th Anniversary today, I'm sharing my fabulous trip photos I took earlier this summer at The Happiest Place On Earth! 

As you know I Love Disney World and have been there countless times, however I have fallen in love with Disneyland also! For the 60th Anniversary AKA The Diamond Celebration, Disney added some extra Magic to the Parks by blinging out everything! I mean everything from Sleeping Beauty's Castle, to Mickey and Minnie, to the darling merchandise, to Carthay Circle, I was in Love! They also added A new Nighttime Parade, Paint The Night, which is amazing, a new firework show, Disneyland Forever, which is a tearjerker, and a new World of Color, World of Color - Celebrate! If you can't already tell I'm a huge Disney fanatic and know a lot about both Disney World and Disneyland!

Southern Blooms

I've definitely got comfy tee's on repeat this summer especially after wearing them for a week at camp! T-shirts and norts are essential for camp and great for casual summer days. This Southern Shirt Company Floral Tee has become one of my absolute favorites with its adorable floral logo and perfect pink color! If y'all are wondering about their sizing, the shirt featured in this post is a small but the one featured {in this one} is a medium. Hope this helps!

Happy 4th Y'all! I'm so proud to live in this great country and thankful for the people who fought for our freedom! In honor of today I wore my favorite new red lace dress from J Crew Factory that I scored for only $20! I paired it some of my favorite white and gold jewelry, navy accessories, and of course red, white, and blue flowers. I loved making this USA themed bouquet with some of my favorite flowers!
