Living the Lilly Pulitzer Dream

Yesterday I was wrapping up a report at the office and got this text from my sister: 


And basically, I was like this : 


BTW, Target need to bring back the crazy lady Black Friday commercials, she's my spirit animal; I even have a giant pearl necklace just like hers. 

Y'all know MandySue loves Target collaborations, and you certainly know my love for Lilly Pulitzer. So this is basically a dream come true. I'm not a regular on Instagram but it looked like that's where most of the news was being posted, so the rest of my night was spent insta-stalking and discussing the 411 in some lilly Facebook groups . For those of you not obsessed with every detail like me here's some basic info: 

What: 250 items in Ladies and kids clothing and accessories, beauty and home goods including beach / patio items. 
When: April 19th 
Where: target stores nationwide and online 
How much: $2 to $150 with 200 items under $30! 
Why: IT'S LILLY!!!!!

Based on the pictures I've seen from the swanky NYC announcement party this collection looks fab! It reminds me of the Missoni collection in that its staying pretty true to the brand style and offering the iconic look. Here's a few I grabbed to share. 

To add to my lilly scarf hoard: 

For a night on the town: 


Or a night in: 




Of course, the clothes are really cute. And for the first time for a designer collaboration they will be available in plus sizes! 


The accessories are really cute too! 


And of course on my must have list, teacups!!! (On the far right) 


These cups even have lilly quotes on the inside, adorable! 


So yes , I am pumped and for the most part so is the rest of the lilly community. If you've ever been curious about lilly but found the price point too high I really recommend checking this out.  

As more news becomes available I'll be sure to update. For now I plan on chilling outside my Target before it opens on the release date and when it gets closer to the date will probably make some friendly in store inquiries about how much we're expected to get in Memphis and where the products will be throughout the store. 

So tell me, what's your must have of the collection?

Best of 2017 Fashion

Hello 2018! I'm getting a slow start to the year since the first week of the month is always my busiest at my day job but before I getting fully into 2018 I'm sharing the best of 2017 today. Last year I placed a strong emphasis on refocusing my wardrobe and I'm pretty pleased how the year went. Next week I'll be sharing my list of classic pieces I plan on adding this year but I first wanted to share some of my favorite pieces from the past year because you'll certainty see them this year. Some of my exact pieces are no longer available but I'm linking some very similar items in both straight and plus sizes in case you want to build your closet classic collection with me.
 The whole closet makeover started when I realized that I was lacking a versatile black dress so that was a top priority for me, I soon realized though that a really need a cool weather and warm weather black dress. I wound up seeing a casual cotton swing dress last summer and it would up bei…

Sweater Weather

Although I could do without the snow and single digit temps I do love winter because a lot of my favorite clothes are winter clothes. There's something about a cozy sweater that makes me feel good so of course I'm loving the current trend of statement sleeve sweaters.

With trends I really have to be careful to control myself, especially with these because it's a style I REALLY like. Without the little voice in my head reminding me that I do not need a closet of practically identical pieces I would own several of the tiered sleeve sweaters, thank goodness for that voice! For the tiered sleeve look I went with black because it's versatile and since this is such a trendy piece and there's no guarantee this will be in style come next winter I wanted something I would get a lot of wear out of this season. Likewise when buying a bell sleeve cardigan I wanted something I could wear throughout winter and possibly into spring - this sweater with jeans and a comfy tee unde…

Gratitude Challenge

So this month I was all set to do the whole gratitude challenge thing  but as I started to think of what things I might post about I started to think maybe this isn't the best idea. Is it possible to do a gratitude challenge and come up with 30 unique expressions of gratitude without humble bragging? My day to day life is pretty boring and we don't have cute kids that provide a constant supply of little daily antidotes to be grateful about and I know that this isn't about picking up 30 material possessions  in my life and posting about them. But even when I look past the "stuff" in my life and more behind emotional and non tangible things it still just doesn't feel right - does the friend with the sick kid really need my post about how #blessed I am with good health popping up in her feed? I think not. 
Maybe I'm being Debbie downer on what's supposed to be a lighthearted and fun social media engagement but I just can't get my heart into it becau…

Thanksgiving Essentials

 Next week is Thanksgiving and I am soooo excited! Thanksgiving is basically all of my favorite things in one day - chilling in pjs watching the parade, delicious food, family time, and shopping! For the past few years we have gone our for Thanksgiving because the condo was not wheelchair friendly for my grandmother and my dad moved out of town but this year we're going back to having Thanksgiving at home and while I'm sad we won't have my grandma this year I am excited to be cooking the Thanksgiving meal again. In my humble opinion Thanksgiving is no time for healthy eating and since everyone has their own favorites I say bring on the carbs - this is what my menu this year will be: 1. Champagne Turkey 2. Stuffing 3. Green Bean Casserole 4. Sweet Potato Casserole 5. Mashed Potatoes 6. Peas 7. Corn Soufflé 8. Broccoli 9. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls 10. Cranberry sauce (from the can of course, I hate it but my family tells me this is the only way to have it) 11. Pie 12. Ma…

Shelby Jewel

I really wanted to have this post up yesterday but if you've been following my instagram stories at all you will have seen that I remembered this weekend that I still needed to refinish my dining room table if I had any hopes of using it for Thanksgiving (and yes, I am on track to finish it tonight, Woohoo!) So here I am a day late but not a dollar short with a post on some fun fashion finds. Last week I attended the preview party for a new online boutique started by Memphis Blogger Shelby Jewel. Shelby has beautiful taste so I knew I was interested in checking out her boutique. Nothing says welcome like a glass of Champagne! Racks of beautiful tops Swoon worthy Jackets Pretty Tassel Earrings So, I'll admit I was very nervous about this event, Shelby is very small and most boutique sizes are small as well - I am not. But, I really wanted to see the pretty things and thought hey, you never know. As I predicted clothing is available in S - L but I have found that with some bou…
