Lilly for Target

I know every other blogger out there is freaking the freak out about the new Lilly collection — and no lie, so am I!

I just checked my schedule for April 19, and you had better believe that I will be at my Target as soon as the doors open! My Target is relatively new, and never ever busy, so I have all my crossables crossed that I’ll have the whole Lilly section to myself. Ha!

These are the four pieces I am really hoping to get my hands on:

Lilly Picks
1. Strapless Maxi Dress Nosie Posey // 2. Ruffle Bikini Nosie Posey // 3. Shift Dress See Ya Later // 4. Shift Dress Nosie Posey


One and Three are for yours truly – I have been wanting a pretty hot pink dress to wear for Gracie’s birthday, and also these are two staples for an upcoming vacation!

Two and Four are for Gracie — how adorable that we can wear matching dresses?! And that bikini. I die. I can just see her now on the beach in Hawaii in that little swimsuit :)

Have you checked out the look book yet? Do you plan on doing any shopping, and if so – are you going to brave the store or pray their website doesn’t crash?!

What To Wear Wednesday: Easter Edition

Welcome to the third edition of What to Wear Wednesday! Brittany and I are back, and this month we are talking about what to wear on Easter Sunday!


Easter (usually) means Spring, and Spring (usually) means warmer weather. Except where I live, it’s  Who still 30 degrees with three feet of snow on the ground in Boston. But where Brittany lives (lucky duck) the weather is already warming up nicely – so I’m sure she will actually get to wear a cute, spring outfit on Easter Sunday.

I will too, but with boots, tights and a winter coat :)

 I always make sure that my dress is appropriate for church! Nothing strapless, or too much leg showing for me. I love the first two options if you live somewhere warmer, and the bottom two, if you don’t!

One // Two // Three // Four


One and Two are from Loft — seriously my go-to store for pretty much any occasion!! I love the scallop detail on the pink dress, and the eyelet of the yellow is so appropriate for spring!

Three is my wildcard – it’s the most expensive, but I love a pretty floral shift dress! I could still wear it with tights and a blazer, and be warm enough :)

Four is the color I am wearing – I know, it’s not very “spring-y” but with the weather here lately, it just doesn’t feel warm enough to wear a lighter color. Boo hoo.

Anyway, I can’t wait to see everyone’s Easter outfits and recaps on Monday! What are you planning to wear?

*I should also mention that both Loft and Banana Republic are offering 50% and 40% off everything, making these dresses super affordable! There’s still time to snag one of these beauties before Sunday!*



What to Wear Wednesday: Post-Baby Clothing

Hey y’all! Brittany and I are excited to be back with another installment of “What to Wear Wednesday!”

This month, we’re going to talk about the always fun subject of post-maternity wear. As in – you just had a baby and now nothing fits – so what do you wear? {Special thanks to Brittany from Perpetually Daydreaming for her suggestion!}

I wore maternity clothes from the time I was 6 weeks along – I know everyone’s body is different, but I was so much more comfortable! Eventually, even the “cute” maternity clothes started getting tighter, and not fitting the way it should and before I knew it, I only had about three things to wear. I would dream of the day I could fit back into cute dresses, skinny jeans and shirts –minus the boobs (actually, no – I never had ginormous boobs! ha!).

After Gracie was born, I {mistakenly} thought I’d be back into pre-baby clothes in no time. But, sadly, that wasn’t the case. Thankfully, those first few weeks at home I could rock the “homeless” look :) I vividly remember thinking it was quite an accomplishment if I changed out of my maternity tank I slept in and into my cute, comfy, cotton pajamas for the day.

Eventually, I had to quit looking homeless and get out of the house – both for fresh air and my sanity – so I couldn’t rock pajamas down to the grocery store. I think I said, “What can I wear?” about 35 times on my first outing (while emptying my entire closet onto the floor!) But I found what worked, and now (almost ten months later!) I am very close to being back into my pre-pregnancy clothes…thanks to — genes? breastfeeding? not eating? (kidding!)

Here are some of my post baby essentials!

Blardigan: Ok this isn’t really called a blardigan, but if you read Pinterest Told Me To, this is what she has called it and it has a very large cult following! It’s half blanket, half cardigan – can be dressed up or down – and is super comfy! Win, win, win in my book!

Long Tank: Post baby you want something flowy and long enough to conceal the inevitable belly you will still have after giving birth (ten months later, I’m still rocking the long tanks on a daily basis!).

Leggings: These are my favorite clothing item post-baby, and I actually own two identical pairs. That’s how often I wear these! Pair them with items one and two, and you have a cute, put-together outfit!

Maxi-dress and shirt dress: You will live in easy, comfy dresses. Wear them running errands, or to dinner with your hubby (make sure to do this!!) – dresses are easy and effortless, but fashionable too :)
