Lilly Pulitzer for Target – 6 days and Counting!

Who else is getting super excited about the Lilly Pulitzer for Target launch on April 19th?! I plan on doing both online and in store shopping. Who else thinks this will “break the internet”? Lol! I’m excited for the cute little girls outfits that come in the same prints. Very southern to match with your daughters, especially in an LP print. The clutches, the straw bags for the beach, the sandals, the swimsuits, the dresses, the scarfs….it’s also going to break my bank account. I hope you all get the pieces you’re coveting. Here are some of my favorite LP for Target pieces. Good luck and happy shopping!

Lilly Pulitzer for Target Coming April 19, 2015!

When I heard last night that Lilly Pulitzer was the next designer to collab with Target, excitement would be an understatement! I’m a southern girl through and through, and Lilly Pulitzer is a southern girls staple of choice. Her prints are bright, fun, colorful and scream spring and summer. Even though Lilly calls to the southern belles, I know that women everywhere will be flocking to their local Target stores on April 19th to clear the shelves.

There’s going to be 250 items available to give your house and your wardrobe a good dose of Lilly Pulitzer! I can’t wait to stock up on some beautiful LP printed dresses at a more affordable price point. The LP for Target collab is following along with the Missoni line in offering a more lifestyle line of products for Target. So expect to see a whole range of home goods from decorative pillows to chairs to umbrellas. The price point will be from $25 to $250, with around 200 items under $30.  Here are some photos from the preview. What are you most excited for?

My Cinderella Moment wearing Bel & Beau

Who doesn’t love a floor length taffeta maxi skirt?! Well certainly this girl does. Bel & Beau inspires women to dress up, but their skirts are meant for both dressing up and dressing down. I think it’s important as women and mothers to have those moments of feeling pretty – Cinderella moments, I like to call them. I attended my in-laws 50th anniversary party so comfort was also extremely important since all four of our children would be attending (ages 3 to 11). I felt really comfortable in this to be able to look put together but still be a mom of small children.

The maxi I chose came in the most beautiful fuchsia. Bel & Beau skirts are made to order, so there’s no “out of stock” or “backordered” which we all hate. And for me being a petite, I was thrilled that was an option (tall is also available). But bear in mind it generally takes two weeks for it to ship since it is made to order, so give yourself plenty of time to order in case you need it for something particular. They also have the most beautiful tulle skirts, and that’s definitely next on my list!

Statement Jewelry from @Cherrylovesjewelry on Instagram

I’m somewhat of a statement jewelry addict and if you go in my vanity you’re probably going to class me as a stage 1 hoarder. But I’m a firm believer in how a great piece of statement jewelry can literally dress anything up and make yourself look instantly put together. Throw on a simple tee from Forever21 (like the mint polka dot version below) or bring your outfit to the next level for added glamour. I found @cherrylovesjewelry on Instagram and fell in love with the pieces she offers. I have always spent full price on the JCrew version and it’s definitely broke me on a few occasions. I never really had good luck with the lower cost knockoffs. They would tarnish or stones would fall out. It just felt like the old adage “you get what you paid for” was true. So I was super excited when I finally found someone that was selling almost identical pieces of JCrew and Stella Dot for super affordable prices and the quality was near flawless. I’m happy I found a way to continue my love of statement jewelry in a more affordable way and put my money to good use, like shoes and handbags 🙂
