Friday, Friday, Friday…

What kind of plans do you have this weekend? Ours is – as usual – busy. One day we will have a weekend that entails doing absolutely nothing, and I’m going to love every second of that! It’s a fun-filled weekend, but I could really use some down time. Maybe next weekend…wait, no. Maybe the weekend after. But probably not.

Anyway, it’s Friday, and that’s a celebration day in our house because we don’t have to pack any lunches for anyone for two solid days! Trust me, four lunch boxes for four kids who all like different food – omg.

I’d love to say Fridays are relaxed days, but this time of year they’re not. That means rushing out the door every morning to take four kids to school, run errands, come back home and get into my office to catch up on deadlines and client requests, head to yoga, back to school to pick everyone up, and then it’s time to take the kids out for Friday Fun night.

And that means I have zero time to focus on what to wear…which is why I am completely, 100% obsessed with the Essie.

  • It’s sleeveless – perfect for the hot Florida weather
  • It’s a classic cut – flattering on all body types
  • It’s always chic
  • You can dress it up for Sunday Brunch or lunch with the girls or down for running errands with the family 

Lilly Pulitzer knows how to make sure we busy ladies have a summer staple (and in Florida, it’s always summer) we can turn to when we have little time but need to look chic and put together. And, we all know that email is going to show up any time in the next week or two letting us know it’s time for the After Party Sale. Half-price LP? Sign me up!

If you need a chic staple that allows you to look pulled-together, stylish, and appropriate no matter what you’re doing, this versatile piece is worth the investment. And it’s only $98  – and you can’t beat a staple for under $100!

With so many colors and options to choose from, the biggest problem in your life is figuring out how to dress it up or down – but I’ve got you covered.

Casual: Sandals or espadrilles, fun earrings, and an oversized handbag

Chic: Wedges, simple jewelry, and a structured tote


Voila – you look amazing, and it took you all of 30 seconds.

Happy weekending, friends!



    1. Thank you! I’m sort of in love with the color combo right now!
