Friday Favorites: Recent Lilly Pulitzer Purchases

Happy Friday, loves!

What a week! May is the busiest year in the world for all people with kids – and when you have four kids, it’s four times as busy. This is the month we basically give up any dreams of rest, relaxation, down time (and work, for me) and give our lives to our kids.

I haven’t been home one day this week. Every single day has been kid-related from pediatrician appointments to competitive cheer stuff to lunch with one of my favorite mom friends to yoga to tumble classes to dinner with new friends, to everything in between. It’s been a busy week. Yet I still managed to get everything written and done, and I feel super accomplished going into the weekend.

It was a fun week, but I’m ready for the weekend!

And, since it is weekend, and it’s going to be a gorgeous one here in the Sunshine State, I’m sharing a few of my favorite recent Lilly Pulitzer purchases. Anyone who knows me knows that I live in Lilly from March to September (and usually beyond that).

There’s just something so refreshing about the fun colors, the bold prints, and the quality is always perfect. Fun fact: I have enough Lilly to wear a different dress or pair of shorts or romper or jumpsuit every single day of the summer and not wear the same piece twice. But…we all know that when you love a piece so much, you wear it twice. Or three times. Or more. Whatever. There’s no shame in my repeat game when it’s this good.

Of everything I wear, I get more compliments on my Lilly dresses than anything else )other than my fuchsia and gold Manolo Blahniks….those get more compliments than anything I’ve ever encountered in my life). Everyone asks about my Lilly dresses whether they want to know where I buy all my beautiful dresses or they want to know how I find such fun mommy and me dresses for my girls, or they want to me to know that they love seeing me all the time because I’m always so bright and colorful and it lifts them up.

In the past month or two, I’ve picked up some amazing pieces for spring and summer, and they might be my favorites, so I want to share them with you (and one romper that isn’t LP, but I love it too much to care).

Rompers and Jumpsuits in the Caribbean

Happy Wednesday, loves!

It was The. Most. Fun. Weekend. It was all fun in the sun with our amazing people, and I’m exhausted to a point I can’t even describe. We spent the weekend with our four favorite couples on a Royal Caribbean cruise to the Bahamas, and we laughed for four straight days. Oh, the memories!

I can only say that I am truly grateful that we have such an amazing tribe, and that in the decade we’ve been so close, we’ve done some of the most amazing things together, been to the most amazing places together, and created some of the most seriously amazing memories. Our kids have been best friends since birth, we’ve been all over the world together, and the dynamic is the best.

It’s not easy to plan a trip for five couples with a grand total of 12 kids between them. You have seven sets of grandparents who have the be available at the same time, on the same weekend, and it’s a lot of planning. But, shout out to those grandparents for taking the best care of our littles so we can make memories.

The first night of the cruise was the night I was finally able to wear one of my favorite purchases from last year, and I love it. My gorgeous friend Corinna and I have been planning our outfits for a while, and we wanted to grab a quick pic together before dinner in my romper and her jumpsuit – and we had a ton of compliments!

I want to take a moment to point out that you’re looking at mid-30s mamas with a total of seven kids between the two of us. We’ve both always been active and good about working out and eating well, but we made a commitment a few months ago – along with our husbands – to really focus on good health, building muscle and toning, and just live our best lives. And we, along with our husbands, have been killing it. I’m so proud of us.

{Corinna’s outfit details: By&By Jumpsuit, similar shoes here and here}

It was a rompers and jumpsuits kind of night for us, and we both received a ton of compliments on our choices. I asked Corinna if I could share her outfits along with mine because of that, and she was totally fine with it. And I will never, ever look at this picture of us without visualizing knives, Tito, and BJ being a married man while dying of laughter. #insidejokes
