I can't believe it has taken me so long to talk about the Lilly x Target collab! This was the first Target collab I was actually excited about because the pieces were not only affordable, but things I would want to wear all the time! One of the items I was able to snag, and I truly mean snag because it was like Black Friday in April, was this adorable top. The colors are so fun and scream Lilly, but it was wayyy more affordable, which is always a major win in my book!

I hope all of you had an amazing Fourth of July weekend!! Thanks for reading!

Happy (late) Easter!! I hope y'all had a wonderful Easter weekend with your friends and family. With all the Easter egg hunts and gifts from the Easter bunny, it's easy to forget the real meaning of the holiday. As a Christian, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most important part of my faith and life. Not only was it the ultimate sacrifice and example of love, but it changed everything about life on earth for believers. 

Just like Christmas, I love picking out my Easter dress each year. I found this gem at a Lilly Pulitzer store in the Hamptons this summer. I was instantly drawn to the simple but classic style, and as an added bonus, it was on major markdown! To accessorize, there's really no other option than to pair pearls with Lilly! I loved seeing all the pastels and preppy outfits at church and on social media- like how freaking cute are seersucker suits!!

Luke 24:6-7 : He is not here; He has risen! Remember how He told you, when He was still with you in Galilee: 'The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.'"

Thanks for reading!

holiday gift guide: for him

As hard as it always is to find my mom a gift, it's always 10x harder to find one for my dad. I feel like it's always the same constant repeat of gifts- clothes, golf, grill, clothes, golf, grill...To break out of that rut, I put together some gifts for a variety of personalities. I hope this helps a little bit for all of y'all that struggle as much as I do!

for the prepster: 

I'm obsessed with preppy style for guys. Not many guys are into styling an outfit, so a preppy t-shirt like this one and some Sperrys, and you're done!

for the traveler:
Traveling is my absolute fav but always super hectic! First, they limit how heavy your bag can be, which so does not work when I'm trying to avoid looking like a hot mess. Then there's the 4 oz limit, which can be so frustrating. Some airports even take away products less than that, which totally doesn't make sense. There's always some kind of delay, whether the plane's late coming in, or (the absolute worst) when you have to sit on the tarmac for hours. Car rides are fun, but I can only last so long before I'm bored. An iPad is the perfect solution! It doesn't take up too much space, can be used with or without wifi, and is endless entertainment. The best for on the go!

for the techie:
Going with the polaroid theme from my gift guide for her, Urban Outfitters sells a printer which prints polaroid pictures minus the camera. You can print pictures wirelessly from your phone and they come out looking like a Polaroid! 

for the athlete:
 My brother is an athlete so it's always been easiest for me to find him something. Shoes are basically always on the list, so that makes it super easy! But apparently red soles aren't the type of shoes he likes, so I always have to send him tons of different colors and style until there's one he actually likes!
