Transitioning From Summer to Fall

Fossil Cashmere Sweater

Transitioning your wardrobe from one season to another can be tricky. On the one hand, you may want to hold on to those off the shoulder tops you wore all summer. On the other hand, you’re ready to break out the sweaters and leggings for good. If you’re like me, then you’d rather have one season or the other. I hate the in between. Continue Reading

How to Decide if a Handbag is Worth the Investment

Confession: I’m a bag lady. As I’ve gotten older, I’m more willing to spend a little more money on handbag. Deciding to splurge on a handbag is a big decision, but I absolutely believe that buying a high quality, more expensive bag can be a wise investment when it comes to your wardrobe. A designer handbag can make more affordable pieces look more expensive, and depending on what style you choose, can be the focal point of an outfit.

What I’m Grateful For

Banana Republic Laser Cut Top

Lately I’ve been thinking about how well things have been going. I’m the first to admit that I probably use this blog as an outlet to share when things aren’t going well, but I feel that it’s important to acknowledge when I’m in a good place. I was inspired by Jessi of The Darling Detail to share what I’m thankful for, because we need to acknowledge the good in life as much as the bad.  Continue Reading

What I’m Into Volume 91 + Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale

I never thought Friday would get here, but alas, here we are! I’m so looking forward to a weekend of relaxation. Between a summer cold and lots of travel (which I’m so happy I got to do), a low key weekend is exactly what I need.

My fellow Lilly lovers may have heard the news that the After Party Sale is happening August 22 and 23 (Monday and Tuesday) beginning at 8 a.m. EST. Honestly, as crazy as it is, it’s a great opportunity to score some Lilly pieces at a great price. Sizes do sell out quickly, though. During the winter sale, they had a queue, so I suggest hopping on before 8 a.m. in the event, as you’ll be placed in a line.

My other tip is to set up an account with your payment and shipping info prior to the sale. This way you can shop quickly. More info on the sale can be found here. It looks like they’ve changed a couple of things, so definitely give it a read.

I’m sure the warm weather won’t be going anywhere any time soon, so there will be plenty of time to get some wear out of your new Lilly pieces. If you do decide to shop the sale, I’d love to hear what you get.  Continue Reading
