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!

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!

DIY : Jeweling your shoes like Gap and JCrew

I ordered these heels from Target in silver and black just so I could try my hand at DIY jeweled heels. I love the versions that are sold by JCrew and Gap but they can be pretty pricey. I have a handful of broken necklaces that I’ve been saving in case the jewels might come in handy. So I took out a couple of broken JCrew knock-off necklaces and started taking the jewels off with needle nose pliers. So easy. I use E6000 glue which really is the best crafting glue on the market. I played around with the jewels until I achieved a look I liked and then glued them in place. It took maybe 10 minutes and I’ll have a fabulous pair of heels to wear tonight! I’m ready to jewel some sandals next!

Finished

Just break some jewelry and have fun creating your own jeweled shoe brooches!
