I am so excited for this Sunday, April 19th, I can hardly stand it.
Sunday is the day that Target launches it’s latest collaboration with the well-known Lilly Pulitzer label.
It’s true, Lilly purists are dismayed by the brand “lowering” itself to the likes of Target’s fashion for the masses, but I think it’s awesome. It brings southern belle charm and sophostication to all women, who want to look good even if their bank accounts aren’t as full as the average Lilly Pulitzer wearer.
I haven’t always been a huge fan of the busy prints in a rainbow of bright colors, but I have as of late found more and more prints that I really like and Lilly’s shift dresses are practically perfect in every way.
So without further adieu, here’s a quick edit of my most absolutely favorite pieces not only for women… but for the home and children too.
What are your thoughts on the Lilly Pulitzer brand collaboration with Target? Do you think it devalues the brand’s reputation or do you think it’ll give people who wouldn’t have otherwise known or been able to afford access to this fun and vibrant brand?
My two-year-old woke up in the middle of the night on Monday night/Tuesday morning to share with us his newfound flu. I won’t go into great detail, but I did spend about 45 minutes cleaning the carpet in our upstairs hall (I hate carpet!) and a bed full of sheets, blankets, stuffed animals and toy cars.
He woke up again at 8am with dry heaves and at noon, I was in for a real doozy. Needless to say, the bathroom I had cleaned specifically for our weekend guests was getting a second scrubdown from top to bottom.
So wouldn’t you know that standing at the kitchen sink this morning, I got a wave – actually a long lasting bout is more like it – of nausea, followed by a breakout of sweat and dizziness.
A friend saved me by taking and picking up my oldest for preschool, as well as busying him at the park for much of the afternoon. The morning was long, but my toddler still naps, which left me time to lay around some more.
So this day, when I am feeling lousy and missing the last dance class before our spring recital, I would love the following:
For my upset tummy…
For my poor, aching body…
For my children, who are being raised by friends and tv…
For after my first shower in several days…
And for… well, keeping me company and laughing at my jokes. Duh!
