The March quote in my Lilly Pulitzer planner says “Despite the forecast, live like it’s spring!” And I have definitely been doing that. I am so tired of seeing black and gray everywhere, and am really excited for warm weather and the bright colors it brings. So even on a rainy evening, Lilly brightens my mood. Dress and Scarf- Lilly Pulitzer // Earrings- Brighton // Boots- Cavender’s // Gold bangles- Juicy Couture // Turquoise bracelet and belt- Target // Clutch – The Pink Azalea I absolutely love this clutch! It still has my old monogram, which my husband lightheartedly complains about, but I’ve told him he’s free to buy me a new one! Side note: All my Lilly items I’ve bought during their huge end of summer sale. I’m not about to pay hundreds of dollars for a dress, no matter how pretty it is! Also, can we talk about the Lilly for Target collaboration for a sec? I am SO excited!! The lookbook is already available online- and there’s so many cute things for under $50! You know online is going to be crazy the morning of April 19, so set up an account now and start saving your favorite items (clicking the heart next to the picture). Honestly, you might have better luck in stores, especially if you live a safe distance from a college campus!
Did you know Lilly has a snapchat account? Follow along at lilly_pulitzer! Not only is this Lilly scarf beautiful and super comfy (silk and cashmere), it’s also useful for hiding things, like a stain, a food baby, or an actual baby…. I’m pregnant! That’s an ultrasound picture of Baby Cope at about 11 weeks. The ultrasound was amazing! The baby was waving his/her arms around and jumping up and down! I have an ultrasound scheduled to find out if the baby is a boy or girl in 3 weeks- we are so excited! We have names picked out and will announce them once we find out the gender. I’m in the second trimester now, and feeling so much better. First trimester was really rough with migraines and nausea (and don’t even get me started on pregnancy acne…) but I have left most of that behind. I’ve just taken a nannying job for two girls, 4 months and 6 months, and am learning so much about what it’s like to take care of an infant! I’m not sure exactly what this means for the future of the blog, but I definitely don’t want it to turn into a “mommy blog”. I think I’ll just keep posting fashion (Target has some majorly cute maternity clothes) and lifestyle updates (baby-related and non-baby) and let the blog develop as it will!
