Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale + Giveaway

So, the word on the street is that the Lilly Pulitzer after party sale is set to start Monday, January 4th!!!  Keeping my fingers crossed that I am able to do some shopping from my phone, as we will be on our way back home from the Dominican Republic!  Our flight doesn't leave until mid-morning so hopefully the airport wi-fi will be rocking and rolling ;) 

I have noticed a few of my favorite Lilly Pulitzer items have already been taken off their website so I am guessing this means they are going to be part of the sale!

This dress is a new arrival from Lilly Pulitzer so it most likely will not be a part of the sale, but it's priced really well at $138.00!!  The inside is lined in a light terry cotton so it's super comfy.  The sizing on this dress is pretty tts (I am wearing the xs for reference). 

Almost the entire line of the Luxletic has been removed, so fingers crossed that means it's part of the sale. Trust me, you will be so comfy you will want to wear it all the time!! 

Shorts - Also missing from the website, so I would hold out to see if these go on sale as well.  They run large, so again, size down in these. 

This trapeze tank dress is also missing, and for sizing reference, it runs big so size down at least one size!  If it happens to not be included in the sale you can grab it here for $98!

And now for the good part.....The Lilly Pulitzer Giveaway!!  

To enter all you need to do is go to Lilly Pulitzer and pick out your favorite item, then come back here and leave me a comment telling what that item is!!  Easy Peasy!!  The giveaway will end Wednesday, January 6th at midnight est.  The winner will be announced Thursday morning! 

The winner will receive all of the items below and a $100.00 Lilly Pulitzer gift card!!

Off the Shoulder.....

Hey hey, Happy Hump Day!!  I am currently running around like a mad woman!  Oh, you know, just packing my bags for our trip, packing the kids stuff, getting the house ready for a real estate photo-shoot, and making sure the kids and I are dressed and out of the house by 11am for another showing:) I have no idea why I wait until the last minute to do all of this, but I like to tell myself that I work best under pressure ;) 

Now back to the point of this of my favorite looks to date. 

This top is what soft cotton dreams are made of, no really, I could sleep in it.  It is so soft and comfy. 

And these high waisted distressed jeans are the real deal.  Thigh gap is just one of those things I'll never have, and I am OK with that, but offer me some jeans that suck these thighs in and I am all in!

Christmas 2015 + Random thoughts

I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that it will be 2016 in three days!!  This year has flown by so fast, and for whatever reason, it feels like it has been the fastest yet.  And judging by all the things we already have going on heading into 2016, something tells me this coming year is going to fly by just as fast. 

That being said, as far as the year ending, this Christmas was so fun and magical, especially with Taylor being three and Carson almost seven!  The age they're at really takes me back to how magical Christmas was as a kid. 

I love this picture of their little bed heads when they first woke up to see what 'Santa' brought them! And as you can see, Taylor received lots of puppies, as she is obsessed with all things related to dogs and puppies right now.  And Carson was so excited to see his Ipad and scooter waiting for him. 

The two of them had so much fun with all of their cousins! 

Sweet matching sweater dresses for Taylor and baby Hallie. 

 This was Christmas morning at my parents before we headed to celebrate Christmas with all of Todd's family.  It's almost impossible to get everyone looking at the camera these days, but I still love this picture with my little crew.

(And I was so excited to wear my new tunic dress, as it's so soft and comfy) 

But the best part is the fact that it can be worn off the shoulder for a totally different look! 

// Today I plan to get started packing for our trip, but my guess is I'll end up waiting until the last minute ;)  I have a few things arriving today, and I can't wait to share all the fun new spring arrivals I am taking with me!  Praying I come back with a nice tan (and not an extra 20lbs)...ha!  Not going to lie, I love to eat (a lot) and be completely lazy when on vacation ;)

// Scored this leopard Equipment dress on MAJOR sale for $94.99!!! I have never seen an Equipment dress marked this low!!  FYI it runs big so size down at least one size! 

// Even with it being the holidays we have shown our house several times, and oh boy, did I underestimate how hard it is to keep a house "show ready" with two kids and a dog!  For anyone that has sold a house, please feel free to share any secrets you may have, as far as making things a little easier...I am all ears :)  And while we are talking about houses, I've been pinning away for our future house.  Loving all of these bright inspiration pictures.

Huge After Christmas sales... Mara Hoffman, Joie, and Lilly Pulitzer !!!!!

Happy Happy Sunday loves!!!  Todd and I are about to start taking down the Christmas decorations and also clean out the closets :(  But before we get started in all that fun, I wanted to share a few major sales that are going on right now!!  I also wanted to share a few things I recently picked up that are currently marked down majorly!!!! 

I am absolutely dying over this Mara Hoffman dress that I snagged for 50% off!!!  I can't even begin to explain how gorgeous this dress truly is!!!!  Trust me when say you will not be disappointed!! 

This dress runs pretty tts, but if you are between sizes I suggest sizing down.  I am wearing the 0 and it fits like a glove!  And this bra is perfect with it. 

Major, major fringe love for this blouse!  It's not only fun, but it's also really comfy.  If you ladies have ever owned any Ella Moss you know she makes all of her clothes super soft!  And it was just marked down 30%, so grab it now if you want it!
