Lilly for Target + Essie Nail Polish

Have you seen the new (I mean old) line of nail polishes by Essie that were released as “Lilly inspired” shades to match the clothing. Before you run out to ebay (who knew they were the third partner in the Lilly for Target collaboration) and spend double, please know that these are NOT new shades based on Lilly Pulitzer prints but old colors with a “Lilly for Target” paper tag attached to the bottle. Did they think no one would notice? I’ve had Borrowed and Blue for a good two years. And Golden Nuggets I bought a few months ago on clearance at Ulta for I believe $3. I feel like people are being taken advantage of with this whole Lilly + Target collaboration. essieI would NOT suggest going to Poshmark or ebay and buying these nail polishes that are listed between $14 and $20 each. It would have been fun if they would have had a real selection of Lilly Pulitzer polishes. Or if they wanted to use old colors then maybe a cool Lilly printed bottle. But if you want those colors, just go to Essie.com and type in the names and they are listed as “in stock” and buyable for $8.50 each minus the Lilly for Target paper tag. I just tested that out on the Essie website. And if you really like blue, I suggest Bikini So Teeny by Essie. It’s a beautiful light blue, and in my opinion, better than Borrowed & Blue. Here are a list of the colors that you can shop for on Essie that were part of the collaboration: Forget Me Not Mesmerized Borrowed & Blue Golden Nuggets Pansey Baby’s Breathe First Timer

Sunday Brunch Outfit

I’m slightly addicted to my Gigi New York Uber Clutch. I absolutely adore it! And any chance I can to build an outfit around it, I jump at. I decided to do a play on red, white and blue for a Sunday Brunch honoring a dear friend’s upcoming wedding. This lace peplum is absolutely lovely. I feel so girly in it. It is from Lily & Violet which is a small online boutique with some really feminine and flirty pieces. I think red/white/blue is a great summer trend that extends beyond just 4th of July. It really is a beautiful color combination. Necklace and cardigan are by JCrew.
