Mommy's Day Gift Guide || 2015

Thursday, April 30, 2015

I love gift giving! I think it's most definitely my love language. sometimes though, you kind of sort of run into gift giving rut and you feel like you cant repeat gifts....that happens to me all the time. Which is why I love putting mini gift guides together for holidays. Not only do I help myself but I help you, too!! 

Here is a quick little gift guide I put together! About half of these items are small business items meaning they all made or designed by moms, which I absolutely love!!!

Some of these are on my own current wish list!! 

Like ummm... the tassel bracelet stack (how perfect are those bracelets?!) or the mom buns and extra shot latte's tee----yeah I needed that one like yesterday! or the Jesus, Coffee and Naptime tee for my million cups of coffee. 

hope you found this helpful!!! 



I Survived #lillyfortarget

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

So let's just talk about all of this Lilly Pulitzer craziness. I did expect it to be this insane. I have been a lilly fan since high school but since I now live in Miami where it isn't very popular, I didn't think much of it. And I surely did not think I would be waiting outside the store. 

I had mentioned to my husband I was going to be at Target early Sunday morning, maybe 30 min before the store opened, just to be sure I got first dibs on the items I was really looking for. I ended getting there at about 7;15am and was about the 10th person in line. and slowly the line started getting longer as it got closer to 8am. I was surprised there were girls there before me!!!! 

Where did all these lilly fans come from?!

Let me just say this is pretty huge for me...I am not exactly a black Friday kinda girl who likes to brave the crowds for a good deal. This girl is not a fan crowds. 

The doors opened and women were dumping muliple of the same items in their shopping carts to the point where their carts were overflowing with merchandise... Miami I guess you proved me wrong. Lilly is more popular here than i thought. That or there are a significant amount of people who wanted to take advantage of the situation and make a few bucks, reselling. 

Long story short I was able to snag a few items for Olivia and I...I'm happy I was at least able to score a couple things that I was eyeing. 

These are all of the items I ended up with...A few items I scored from friends or family out of state that changed their mind about them after they bought them and I gladly took them off their hands ;) 

Did you brave all this Lilly craziness?! Were you able to get a hold of any of your favorite pieces?! 

If you're still on the lookout for some items and you dont want to pay a ridiculous amount for them, keep checking your local Target because people are returning items, so there is still hope!!! 

Mom Style: Blush + Destroyed Denim

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

 Let's talk favorite Spring trends...Distressed Jeans and blush pink are pretty up there on the list of my faves right now!!! Well, pink is always a favorite for me. Who am I kidding? and you cant forget my favorite leopard print mom bag that goes everywhere with me ;). literally. 

Distressed jeans are so easy to dress down or dress up.  Just add a pair of heels and a clutch for a casual date night and you're set! 

This is how I styled my distressed denim for a morning of Strawberry picking with G and O...

What are your favorite Spring trends right now?
