Lilly at the Library of Congress

January 12, 2017

Yeah okay, I was definitely kicking myself when I saw that the outfit I wore the day before this matched PERFECTLY with the murals and colors of the Library of Congress, but that doesn’t take away from the stunning beauty of the library.

Dress: Custom Eva Phan Collection message on Etsy for details | Belt: Lilly Pulitzer

This beautifully detailed stained glass covered the ceiling in the main entryway.

This is just a small sampling of the gorgeous murals that covered the walls, I was amazed by just how many there were and how much attention was paid to the details, even though they were so high up!
Cardigan: J.Crew | Shoes: Jack Rogers

Yup, even the floors were covered in elaborate yet elegant tile design.

Love and Stay Preppy,
