Blogtember Challenge- WIshlist {Lilly and More}

First, My Lilly Wishlist:

Pink Tusk In The Sun Buttercup Shorts and Delia Dress I could just find a picture of the Dress. Then Next up is another Elsa; I love the one i have , which also happens to be Elephants, and in Georgia you can wear them all year around. Then my final item[I think] is the Marlowe Dress, I have lots of her other Tshirt dresses and I love them. They work for all seasons are normally just the right length for my 4’11” self.

And as always I will gladly take a new pair of cowboy boots and books. That is another post though. 

Blogtember Challenge- Guilty Pleasures or, #RepublicanGirlProblems

My guilty Pleasure is easily Lilly Pulitzer, even though I  only buy it on sale.  And by sale I mean at her twice yearly #afterpartysale. I love it because it is so nice cherry and bright. It just makes me happy when I wear it. And her clothes are so comfortable and fit me perfectly and I don’t have to hem them, which is a blessing because I am 4’11” so lots of stuff doesn’t fit off the rack

Told ya I have a Tusk In the Sun Obsession. I also have the 2015-2016 agenda. 

Another Guilty Pleasure of mine is watching Harry Potter movies because no one else will watch them with me. This is because i end up quoting the entire movie. Yeah, its bad when you have I believe 5 out of the 8 memorized. 
 And watching CSPAN , hey someone has to do it. And here are some memes about CSPAN and Rand Paul, because he is interesting and has done some cool stuff in the Senate. His whole view of the Federal Reserve and and how there needs to be less regulation is what i believe in. So yeah. I also have all three of his books. 

Blogtember Challenge- Obsessions of a Typical White Girl

I am about to go Typical White GIrl on ya’ll – Fair Warning 
My latest obsessions include: 
1. Anything Pumpkin Spice #noshame,


 I have already had a Pumpkin Spice Blizzard, Dunkin Donuts Munchins , and of course a Starbucks PSL.
 2. Lilly. I have a Lilly agenda , and just spend too much money there. #afterpartysale #TuskInTheSun is my favorite print. #patriotic #america 
3.  getting better while still trying to live my life #spoonie #spoonieProblems  #DBA #GiveBlood 





4. Game of Thrones: I am reading the books and trying to catch up on the HBO series. Its really good, its just complicated and hard to follow sometimes. 

Oooh Look 2 my latest obsessions in One Picture 


5. Any new fantasy book series I can get my hands on. – This should not be a surprise since the revelation that Harry Potter is one of the four books that has greatly influenced my Life. 


6. And also joining in Twitter chats like #fireworkpeople. 

7. Oh and Bookbub , it’s a website that shows you kindle books and other online books that are on sale. The most expensive I have seen is like $3.99, for the book lover in me it’s amazing


Blog- Tember Challenge: My Style

My Style

My style
If I had to describe my style I would have to say country Prep. I’m all about those Classics; those things you can throw with a million outfits and still look put together. And by classics I mean: ballet flats, cowboy boots, polo’s, dresses, skirts and a good pair of jeans. 
A recent #OOTD 

My style is definitely classic with a little something thrown in, I am more likely to choose color than a big blingy jewelry piece.  
There’s a lot of styles that I don’t get: pre-tore jeans, crop tops and high- waisted jeans. I have nothing against those I’m just not that kind of girl.

SHOES: I would have to say cowboy boots, Sperry’s and flats are what I live in. Me and shoes do not get a long, once I find a pair that fits I go with it.
Of course when i look for a picture of my boot(s), i can not find one. 
Jewelry: Simpler the better. I am definitely a southern girl when it comes to pearls, I wear them the most often. I’m a big fan of bangles and charm bracelets. AND I LOVE BOWS. #NoShame

Dresses, Skirts, Jeans and Pants: I go through spurts where I’ll just where dresses and skirts every day and then I’ll go to the opposite end and wear pants all the time. Pants and Jeans I love to dress up or down and if I can wear something Lilly, you bet I am. The more color the better. 

Lilly Pulitzer Agenda Preview

I am in love once again with the new Lilly Pulitzer Agendas. I have had two and love them both dearly for keeping me on top of what needs to be done and when. I have always gotten the large but after today I am thinking that I need the extra large for all that I have going on. Mind you , everything I am doing latley seems like to just stay afloat but that’s another story.

Agendas

And the ones in the runnning for me come december are:

letschachapatternLoopy-Lilly-Agenda

If I decide to stick with the size I have right now; which is a large I would get either Loopy or Lets Cha Cha in Blue.

But if I upgrade to the Jumbo I will get my all time favorite pattern TUSK IN THE SUN. And I love the addition of the green elephant.

And here is a picture that highlights all their features. At first I thought that spending $28 on an agenda was crazy. But then I used it and the rest is history.

So what size and print are you thinking of getting? Have you preordered yet? They are available online at the Lilly Website and Lifeguard Press.

Lilly Pulitzer Spring 2014 Wish list

This is a wish list because lets face it…………I’m a broke college grad and cannot afford full price Lilly. Sad smile I know. But I am in love with the patterns and how they are not necessarily crazy designs but have just enough spunk in them to make  you stand out in a crowd.

Wishlist Wednesday : Lilly Pulitzer and Sperry Topsider

If I have two favorite brands it has to be Lilly and Sperry’s. They are both so confortable. And given I am about to enter the business world and in my opinion , my wardrobe is seriously lacking, I find myself on the RueLala website when they have either of these on sale. That being said here is my wishlist from both of them.

The Gabriella Sweater Dress, $198

Gretchen Dress, $98

Cassie Dress in this color and black. I have two already and love them both……. and this one is only $88

Now for the Sperry’s

I am in need of some flats. As of now I only have one pair and they are white. I feel like the black could go with so much and I love the brown glitter. I am more of a brown girl than a black girl.  On the Sperry website they are $79. But when they are on RueLaLa they are less expensive and more in my budget.

This is the Hayden Women’s Loafer………..

Its brown and I think I need a pair of loafer in my wardrobe to go with more stuff and instantly dress things up.

And on the Sperry Website they are $85, and same thing with RueLaLa.

 

So there you go my wishlist for my professional wardrobe.
