Lilly Pulitzer: Pack in Print

Lilly-Pulitzer-Pack-in-Print-Event

As part of Lilly Pulitzer’s ‘Pack in Print’ event (Feb. 10-17) they are offering a Free Travel Jewelry Case with every $250+ purchase. Given that I love Lilly prints and am so looking forward to spring, I studied the whole spring selection and picked out a Wish List:

 

Lilly prints are perfect for spring showers, summer weddings and those warm days when you just wanna add some spring to your step. While they are quite pricey, they are high quality and will last you a long time. I’ve had this one for nearly ten years now and still get wear out of it (also, very impressed that the colors haven’t faded at all!)

Right on Target

With my recent move and increase in square footage (see my last post for details) I’ve been carefully curating the right items to deck out the new place. Some old faves, but plenty of room for new!

Since I live in Target Town (Minneapolis) and find myself shopping there multiple times per week – sorry I need food. footwear. sportsbras. shampoo. cards. gifts and everything else… I’ve become quite familiar with their new Target Threshold line. As a regular Target shopper I see what they did there – give a new brand and identity to many of the design/decor products they’ve already been carrying, but somehow I’m still under the spell.

Take for instance: Purchasing a tension rod upon which to hang a shower curtain.

Plain white tension rod for $5.70 OR an oil rubbed bronze rod with decorative finials for $27.00?

I think you know what I chose…along with matching curtain rings, shelves, hooks and soap dispenser.

I’ve got my eye on these other bronze beauties, too:

A brilliant marketing move.

Target was perfect for outfitting my college dorm and first apt. Plenty of budget-friendly options. Target is still perfect for outfitting my “Big Girl Place” even if the items cost 3X more. I think the problem is, I can’t say no to cute. Or coral. I can’t say no to this faux coral on clearance. I mean, who can?

Look at all this cuteness I’m coveting for the new place:

Kate Spade Friends & Family

After a full week of no sun and constant rain, I died (in a good way) when I received the email notifying me of the Kate Spade Friends & Family sale. Nothing like ending a gloomy week on a  bright note. Here are a few of my favorites (in my dream world they have all been purchased, in my real world I’ve just been staring at them since 9 AM).

Bow Terrace Bradshaw

Bow Terrace Bradshaw $498

This bag has the perfect classic look (making it worth the investment, just in case you needed to rationalize the purchase, you’re welcome) with a touch of fun thanks to that baby bow. It doesn’t hurt that it shares a name with one of our favorite TV characters. If this reference is beyond you…go away.

Gingham Tallulah Dress

Gingham Tallulah Dress $428

I think this dress is the perfect statement piece for summer. Also, KSNY’s #ginghamstyle hashtag is amazing.

Small Square Studs

 

Small Square Studs $38

 

I need these in every. Single. Color. Thanksssss.

Sailors Knot Hinge Bangle

 

Sailor’s Knot Hinge Bangle $78

 

Oh hey there, here is a standing invitation to my arm party. This  bracelet is already perfect and I want it, but the nautical reference somehow makes me need it.

And this….

Pack A Picnic Wine Tote

 

Pack A Picnic Wine Tote $238

 

Because everyone NEEDS a wine tote. Really, you do – we’ll just look past that price tag for now.
