Fashion Find Friday - Nola Lilly Love

Happy Fashion Find Friday y'all! 
 
As y'all know, I have abit of a thing for Lilly Pultizer Murfee scarfs. This is my current collection:

 
Ah, these scarfs make me so happy. Sometimes I feel like a collector carefully curating a collection. Over the past two years I've swapped out a lot of scarfs, there's at least 10 I've had at one point no longer here. But I know there's a fine line from collection to obsession, which is why I have capped myslef at 20. Right now I have 19 (technically 16, 2 riley loops and 1 wrap) so I'm really careful about adding to the collection. My big problem is I really love most of the ones I currently have, so swapping out is going to be very difficult. I recently sold a popular in demand print I just didn't love so I could add my latest and today's fashion find, the Louisiana /New Orleans print murfee. Here's the print:



So much going on with this scarf, and I love the color scheme. This print is a limited edition commissioned especially for the new signature store open in Mandeville, which is a suburb of New Orleans. Only 100 of these scarves exist and I just had to have one, it gives me warm fuzzies just thinking of all the college fun I had in NOLA. I think the design team did a great job capturing all the great things, my only wish was the Jackson Cathedral be included, but cafe du monde in the print is pretty cool too. A little bit of info from the commisioning store:
 

Palm Village also has a store in North Carolina and just opened one up in Knoxville. I briefly considered the Knoxville murfee but apparently it features Neyland Stadium, yuck! - No way am I wearing that. But here's a close up of that print since I know there are some UT fan readers.


I saw on their Facebook that the Mandeville store is doing a grand opening tomorrow with gifts to the first 50 customers, so jealous of all my Nola friends - y'all need to go!

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …

Vineyard Vines for Target Picks

The annual Target collaboration is something I look forward to all year. From the time when the announcement is made until the look book is released I get antsy with anticipation and then once the look book comes out I scour over it and plan what I will get from the collection.
I love these collabs because a. I love target b. I love getting designer style at prices I can afford and c. target tends to collab with brands that don't offer plus sizes so it's a way for me to participate in a style I enjoy. This year's collab is with Vineyard Vines and I am PUMPED for the collection to be released tomorrow so I figured y'all might enjoy seeing my top picks from the collection.



This pink pullover is the target collection version of the VV Shep shirt. These are great for layering and simple classic style pieces. Since this is a spring collection I imagine this will be very lightweight. The whale shorts is quintessential VV and just adorable. They look to be a little short f…

Blue Vibes Living Room

I'm a pretty decisive person , so when we moved into our home in 2017 I had a pretty good idea of how I wanted to decorate most of the rooms and to me the living room is the most important. The living room is the heart of the home - it's where the family relaxes after a long day at work, where guests are entertained and one of the first impression you get of someone's home and style. But in 2017 decorating the living room I wanted just wasn't in the cards - but I'm a patient person when I really want something and was willing to wait.
Just like when I was planning our wedding when planning our home décor I turned to pinterest to find inspiration and hone in on what I was looking for. I knew that I wanted a blue velvet tufted sofa and quickly had about 20 on my new home board - but eventually one photo stood out and became the "pinspiration" for our living room.

Go WILD, Y'all

I'm writing this post with a serious case of the Mondays as I'm recovering from Go Wild this past week. Go Wild is the annual conference run by the Wild for Planners group and it is so much fun! This year's conference was in Nashville and while there is was announced that 2018 will be in Austin, TX. In addition to bringing planner enthusiasts together this event also presents the opportunity to hear from great speakers, meet planner  / planner goodies suppliers and the part that people to notice the most - awesome swag.   I first found out about the group last year when some planner girls I followed posted on instagram about the conference. To an outsider it looks like oh fun, planner girls gathering and getting tons of swag - I want to go! But the reality is it's so much for than that and to be perfectly honest if you're only interested in the swag you'd be better off staying home and going on a shopping spree. Since everyone wants to know the most though wha…

Gingham Style Color Three Ways

Anyone who knows me knows I love gingham for it's classic preppy style and versatility. I have several gingham tops and gingham dresses but am just now getting comfortable with wearing printed bottoms. In addition to being comfortable and perfect for summer I am loving these gingham pants from Jessica London because I can wear them with a variety of colors. The possibilities are endless but in this post we're taking a look at three different colors to pair with gingham.
The most obvious color is white and since gingham is always white and one other color it will go with gingham in any color. A lot of people get intimidated by white because it seems hard to clean - while it's true that white will highlight a stain I find white easier to treat stains that colored garments because it can be bleached. Plus, white gives summer fresh vibe. I went with an off the shoulder top for my white because it also screams summer to me. Since this top has statement sleeves with the side b…
