Happy Friday!

Of Derby Weekend!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

My life will somewhat resume next week--five classes done, one looooooong term paper and presentation left to go. :)

Happy Earth Day!

My friends tease me about my love of recycling--so this new Lilly dress is a must-have.  I can't wait to wear it and have my friends laugh!

And this may be a good gift for my mother who instilled in me the love of recycling and all things green!

So I may have said this before...

But my goal is to transform my closet/second bedroom into an organized and beautiful room where all of my lovelies can rejuvinate.  (And by lovelies I mean my massive amount of clothes/shoes/ headbands/accessories, after the necessary purge.)  The ultimate deadline to have everything at least hung up/folded/put away is the first weekend of May, when I'm done with school.

This is my last week of class then finals/papers next week.  Finally, it'll be time to tackle this monumental project.

Here are some closets of inspiration...

From Apartment Therapy

From Domino

Eva Longoria's

Nicky Hilton's (The glass doors are gorgeous!)

Carrie's closet.  Obvi.  (Okay, what's inside this one may be more impressive.)

But instead, mine looks a bit more wild.

Oh, Isla, I feel your pain.

Spring Safari

I know I'm not the only one who drooled over the pictures of Lilly's Spring Safari on the LP facebook page.  

Some of the ladies of LP painted at the event.

And I would LOVE to have this painting in my room!

(All pictures from the LP fb page.)

Were any of you lucky enough to go to Spring Safari this year?

Lilly's New Summer Murfees!

I love my Murfee scarf in Surf Blue Checking In.  Every time I wear it, I feel a little happier, and get so many compliments!

I think I may have to add another one (or two!) of the summer versions to my life.  Although it may be hard to see in this picture, the pink and blue ones are both in a lovely toile.

Have you seen any of the new Lilly at In the Pink or C. Orrico?  What are you loving?

Another Busy Week

So sorry for the lack of posts lately!  I am almost done with the semester, and these last few weeks have been crazy.  After this week, things may be a bit slower next week, then it's my last week of school!   (Until September at least.)

I hope everyone is enjoying a beautiful week.  Pictures of the Washington, D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival always make me smile and want to go for walks outside!

Lilly Pulitzer Cruiser!

Oh my goodness!  Lilly must've known I loved the Liberty of London bike, but not quite enough, because LP is coming out with cruisers!  I can just imagine adding a Lilly basket to the front (and maybe a few more accessories--I used to have a bell and streamers!) and riding around town this summer.

The LP facebook page just posted a picture of this lovely bike.  And the information:

Believe your eyes Lilly Lovers.... the Lilly Pulitzer Cruiser has arrived! (well almost...) This summer Lilly has produced a limited number of cruiser bikes with Van Dessel Sports! These will soon be available to pre-order so stay tuned for all the details on lillypulitzer.com!! Cheers!

More details to come soon, but they are creating these with a highly regarding bike company, Van Dessel Sports.  The colors on this are adorable and I'd love to see one in person.  I wonder how easily I can justify this pre-order? ;)

Are you a fan?  What do you think about other Lilly collaborations?  (ie: LeSportsac, Keds, M.A.C.)

Earring Love

I found a beautiful vintage pair of hot pink earrings last summer in a little antique shop in Northern Virginia.  They have pink center stones and are surrounded by rhinestones.  Every time I wear them I love the added sparkle they have.

These are pretty similar and can be found at Fornash.

I may need to add the green ones to my jewelry wardrobe!  (They also come in blue and crystal.)

My friend, N, who has wonderful taste (lots of Lilly!) wears similar earrings she found at JOJO Loves You.

The charcoal is a great color.

It's always fun to have some bling you can add to any outfit to feel a bit more special.  Do you have any items you love to wear to add some sparkle?
