Lilly Pulitzer Fall Finds
Generally, I love to shop Lilly pieces for the Spring and Summer seasons. The bright colors and vibrant patterns always me think of sunshiny vacation times. As a long time lover of the brand, I’ve realized that the collections just aren’t for warm weather seasons- they can be worn all year long! From the every day essential dresses, to the day to night pant styles and the classic sweaters, you can enjoy your Lilly year round!
Some of my favorite new styles include three quarter length sleeve dresses that can be worn with flats or boots, and the open front cardigans that can be worn all year.
Check them all out HERE!
Just before the winter weather arrives, I love dressing for crisp air temps in flowy dresses that can be paired with flats, booties, high knee boots and beyond! Here are my current favorites that are all under $50!
“Give a girl a great pair of shoes, and she can conquer the world”
This quote reigns so true- when I find the perfect pair of shoes, whether it’s heels or flats, I get a little burst of confidence that makes me feel like I can do anything (well almost anything!) These are my favorite summer shoe purchases from this season. I’ve worn them all to death and can honestly say they are as comfortable as they are cute!

AmazonFashion Floral Jacket– I thought scoring this baby for $8 was a good deal! Well it’s now marked down to less than $3!!!! Super lightweight and provides the cutest touch to any outfit.
Circle Straw Bag– I’ve been coveting the this Clare V. bag for almost two years now! I just can’t bring myself to splurge on it…and now I don’t have to! There is an identical version at Gap for less than $50! *it has sold out twice already, but keep checking back. I missed it the first time, but was able to scoop it up this week.
High-Waist Swim bottom– Bathing suit season is around the corner, and although I MUCH prefer the warmer weather months, after two kids my desire to ‘bare it all’ is less and less! I found the perfect high waist bottoms that help tuck everything in (you know those pesky mom areas!) and they range in price from only $15-$25! I plan to pair the striped pair with this adorable ruffle top. I’m smaller on the top than the bottom, in swim sizes, so I love the ruffle detail to help create the illusion I’m working with more than I really am!
Week of March 19-23
Benefit Gimme Brow Gel– helps give brows a full, thick look by adding fibers to existing brows. Goes on really smooth and stays in place. Available in three shades.
Too Faced Better than Sex mascara– The BEST mascara! I’ve tried a few other brands of mascara since first being introduced to Too Faced, and every time I turn back to the Better Than Sex mascara. It’s the best mascara I’ve ever used- plumps lashes, helps to extend them and make them full. Lasts all day and worth every penny! (Especially when on sale!)
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation– Great foundation for full coverage. Goes one great (I apply with a beauty blender) and stays all day long.
Little MAC Lipstick– Perfect for travel, or to experiment with new colors. A smaller sized lipstick size, available in a ton of colors. Definitely going to snag a few for those days that call for a bold lip!
Peter Thomas Roth Hydra-Gel Eye Patches– I’ve been dying to try this brand so I scooped these gel eye pads during this sale. Heard great things about all these products so I’m excited to give it a go!

Week of February 25-March 3
This weeks style finds are some of my favorite staples for the warmer weather, and a few must-have swim pieces that are at prices that are too good to pass up!
I love to good basic graphic tee- they can be dressed down with distressed denim for running around town, or be dressed up with a cute pair of skinny pants, high heels and a blazer. My recent favorite is this J.Crew Paris Tee. Another good Summer staple I found at J.Crew is this cute scallop one piece bathing suit. I love the adorable scalloped halter detail and the full coverage back. Another great place to snag great suits is Target. They are currently have a BOGO (buy one get one 50% off) on all swimwear and shoes. This adorable floral option is great for vacation and is a high cut waist to help cover that pesky ‘mom stomach’ that NEVER seems to want to go away! 😉
A navy & white striped, along with a black & white striped top, are on my top 10 list of “everyone should own!” This one from Old Navy is the ideal transition piece for Spring. Lastly, these thong sandals are a designer look-alike knock off and are part of the BOGO deal. Available in two colors and perfect for travel.

I’m a sucker for a feminine, romantic style top. Splurged on this one from Madewell during their Valentine’s Day sale. Too cute! (*P.S. Do you use EBates when you online shop?- YOU SHOULD! but if you do, Madewell is currently offering 14% back when you shop! I earned $8 on this shirt)
