Walkin' In A Florida Wonderland

Marley Lilly Blanket Scarf // Sweater: Nordstrom Rack // White Denim (gasp!) // Tory Burch Flats (old, similar) // Very similar (less expensive) Tory Burch Tote

Can you believe Christmas is next week?!  The first year I lived in Florida it was hard to get in the spirit with the warm weather, but this year I've had no problems!  Partially because it has been cold here, and partially because of how crazy Sarasota gets with their decorations.  It's so festive and I love it.  I never thought I would pair a holiday outfit with white denim (gasp!) but I think they add the perfect Florida touch!  Pair that with an amazing (and inexpensive!) blanket scarf and you have pure holiday perfection. :)

Fall in Florida

Y'all might be sick and tired of this scarf by now...but I most certainly am not!  Now my collection of Lilly Pulitzer Murfee scarfs is larger than before, but regardless of how many I have I always find myself reaching for this one!  When I was living in PA I would always pair it with my darker winter outfits to add that pop of sunshine I was so craving.  It is the perfect way to brighten up your darker Fall/Winter wardrobe, and the silk and cashmere mix makes it pretty much the softest thing ever. This time I paired it with my favorite clingy black sweater dress to make a simple chic "Fall in Florida" outfit!

Oh heyyyyy!

Hey there, strangers!  It feels weird to be writing here after taking more than a month off, but I'm back and in a much better place to blog!  I didn't take an intentional break, and unlike the majority of the blog world right now I haven't fallen out of love with blogging, I just ran out of time!  Over the last month work and school had to take priority, but with the semester drawing to a close I'm finally able to sit down and write!  I have some really fun outfits and gift guides coming up in the next few weeks, but for today I thought I'd do a little month catch-up.

Not surprisingly, my month has been filled with Lilly!  At the beginning of the month I got to help set up the Lilly Pulitzer Fashion Show and Luncheon with the Junior League of Sarasota at the Sarasota Yacht club!  We decked out the whole club with Lilly table cloths, dresses, and fun pink girly cocktails.  There were literally hundreds of women dressed in Lilly there...screw Disney, it was the happiest place on earth!  My personal favorite part was meeting my new best friend, Melissa, one of the Lilly print designers!  She painted a Lilly canvas freehand for the auction.  I'm still not over the fact that I didn't win so let's move on.

{What's a champagne cocktail without tiny pink flamingos?} 
The next big Lilly event was celebrating Lilly's birthday.  We went all out.  We're talking steel drummer, champagne, macaroons, the whole nine.  It was really fun for everyone in the store, and customers too!  The drummer even let me play his drums and let me tell ya...I have a future there. ;)  I thought it was a crazy party at the store, but it was just the warm up for our grand opening in December.  If you're in the Sarasota/Bradenton/Tampa area you really don't want to miss it.  Trust me!!

 {Believe it or not...the matching wasn't planned!}

Other than living the Lilly dream life I've been swamped with school work and completing my 60 volunteer hours for one of my classes.  I swear I thought going to school online would make life easier but Bama doesn't joke around.  One class I'm supposed to take requires 160 hours of clinical!  For a 3 credit class!  I'm going to have to be creative for that one. Anywho, I'm rambling since it's 8:30 and I've been up since 6:30 with no caffeine or food, so as Dom says when I'm online shopping I'm going to "step awayyyy from the computer."  Have a wonderful Monday!

The New Lilly Pulitzer Store at University Town Center!

Janice Shift Dress (also comes in navy!)

The day is finally here!  Today the Mall at University Town Center opens, and the most exciting part is, of course, the new Lilly Pulitzer store!  So much work has gone into the store in the past two weeks (and before) and it's amazing to see how it all came together.  Last night was the "Preview Party" where people can buy tickets to shop the mall early with hors d'oeuvres and champagne.  It was so much fun to see everyone's excitement over the new Lilly store!  We even had people wearing Lilly taking pictures outside the store.  It really is true that all Lilly lovers are a big colorful family.  
My favorite part of the store by far are the dressing rooms!  Each is painted in a different Lilly theme, and you instantly feel transported to the beach!  I truly think everything looks flattering in a bright Lilly fitting room. ;)  I also adore the Lilly quotes hidden around the store.  There are so many hidden gems, and it's so fun seeing customers so delighted over them.  The happiness is contagious!  So much so that as I'm writing this I need to be up in 6 hours to go back and work a full grand opening day...and I cannot wait!

If you're in the Sarasota area or coming to visit, please come in and say hi!  You most certainly won't regret it. :)


Crimson Cardi

Crimson Tide Cardigan c/o // Booties (similar) // My favorite pair of denim skinnies // Kate Spade Sunnies // Tory Burch Tote- no longer available.  You can buy mine for $320 (retail $550) or check out this similar one // David Yurman Albion Ring Lips: Marvelous Moxie: Maverick

Yesterday my friend Chelsea (from soon-to-be-launched blog www.belleinblack.com) and I set out on a mission in downtown Sarasota to find some perfect locations for outfit pictures.  When we spotted these red steps we knew it would be perfect for this outfit!  Even though it was 100 degrees (no joke) I had to share this Shop Blue Avenue Crimson Tide Cardigan with you!  Besides being versatile and gorgeous it is seriously so soft.  It feels like the softest sweatshirt ever, but sooo much cuter!  In fact, as I write this I have it across my legs as a blanket.  Even though it will be a few more months before I can wear this outside in South Florida, it will definitely be the first item to come out when it finally hits 70 degrees!  I paired it with my favorite jeans, and my large Tory Burch Robinson tote!  It was the perfect fall outfit...if only it were actually fall! ;)

Also, while you're in the shopping mood, SHOPBOP started their 3 day 25% off sale today!  Use code FAMILY25 for 25% off the entire site.  They have one of the largest selections of clothes, shoes, and handbags I've ever seen, and they're all to die for.  Perfect for getting a start on Christmas gifts! Happy Shopping! :)
