Hodgepodge Monday

Whew!  I cannot believe I flipped open my calendar this week and next Monday is Labor Day!  I also can't believe I haven't been posting at all lately, so this will be a bit of a hodgepodge Monday post.

One of my favorite couples is expecting!  I taped the VMAs and will be watching a bit later, but was so excited to hear that Jay-Z and Beyonce are expecting their first baby together.  I also think Beyonce looks beyond gorgeous in this ensemble.

I had a little too much fun with the Lilly End of Summer Sale.  Can't wait for my new black Shayna to arrive.  I'm hoping I can wear this to a work party with my bestie in October with a fun new murfee without it looking too summery.

I had a work picnic over the weekend at a gorgeous park that was across the street from a beach I have never been to.  My fingers and toes are crossed that this weekend is warm enough for an outing there.

I found out last week I will be the proud aunt and Godmother to a baby nephew!  I had a feeling the baby was a boy, but the ultrasound confirmed my suspicions last week.  I am so excited to meet my brother's Baby Boy in January.

I am attempting to build an updated new work wardrobe.  A few of the J. Crew dresses seem to fit the bill.

My new office is right across the street from Starbucks.  It will be very very trying to avoid getting a pumpkin spice latte daily when they come back next week.

What's new with you?  Any lovely tidbits you'd like to share?

Dreamy Parisian Engagement Session

Pink Champagne's upcoming trip to La Ville-Lumière has had me daydreaming even more than usual about one of my favorite cities.  Slip off your sparkly shoes, pour yourself a glass of champagne, and imagine you're strolling through the streets of Paris with your love.

Le sigh.

Another Drool-worthy Targey Collaboration

Remember the Liberty of London partnership I lusted after here and here?  Well the Missoni collection may be even more lust-worthy, and many pictures are already posted here.

A cozy blanket for tailgating.

Some new luggage for a fun weekend trip.

And some gorgey flats.

And a new mod dress.

With super cute tights.

And I do adore bicycles!  Love the vintage look of the leather seat and handlebars.

What do you think of the collection?

Pink & Green Autumn Lilly!

 Last night my girlfriend and I raced to Lilly after work.  I was in search of a new planner and possibly something new for fall.  We left drooling over the gorgeousness of everything in the store!  Join Trish and I for a fabulous Pink & Green Thursday full of new Lilly.

You could wear these navy wedges now through autumn (depending on the weather of course).

Buy the Edie immediately.  Absolutely gorgeous, flattering, a very fun print, and perfect to wear now.  I think this will be one of the quickly sold out items, but Village Palm has them now!

Another absolutely gorgeous wedge.  (They will also have them in leopard!)

The Fannie is a timeless take on a shift--love the rick rack detailing.

And my store also had a rack of holiday and resort--I must get these pants!  I have a slight obsession with chandeliers. ;)  This print is also coming out in a tunic that is adorable--I may need that, too.

Autumn always means you should stock up on a few new cardigans.

Adore this entire outfit, and the skirt makes it.

What's your favorite Lilly item for fall?

Crazy About Pippa

Last night TLC aired, Crazy About Pippa.  I can't wait to watch it tonight!  (My station is showing it again on Friday evening in case you missed it.)


Are you a Pippa fan?  What did you think of the special?

Yesterday was my first day of work at my new job.  I had a beyond fabulous weekend that left me very happy and more than a little tired.  Today is my last day of the class I am teaching, and I am attempting to catch up on life a bit tonight before a very long Junior League meeting.

On a side note, I am wearing this today.  Obsessed.

Friday's Fancies--{Maxi}mize Summer!

I'm so happy to be linking up with {av} again for this week's Friday's Fancies!


Summer to me means water and the beach.  This outfit is the perfect outfit for a relaxing evening dinner overlooking the water at a gorgeous resort before a romantic walk with your beau along the beach.


How do you wear maxis?

Pink & Green Bachelorette Party


I am on my way right now to Wisconsin to help my sorority pledge daughter (or little) celebrate her wedding!  Tomorrow is the big day and I can't wait to stand up with her and participate in her special day.  When I saw this dreamy bachelorette party a couple weeks ago I knew it'd be perfect for Trish's Pink & Green Thursday and is such fab pictures of four friends having a blast!
