The Lilly Pulitzer for Target Look Book is live and it is getting me so excited for Spring! I don't know what I love more, the collection of Lilly items for the Home or the assortment of swimwear and dresses for toddler girl's. If I had a beach house I would buy the 9' patio umbrella in a heart beat along with the coordinating hammock, however, I am going for a totally different look on our patio. Think more French bistro meets wine country than Palm Beach Chic. While I probably won't be purchasing anything from the Home section (except maybe these bad boys,) I will be rocking my sweet little girl in Lilly all summer long. Happy Spring you all!

Baby B is not due until June, so I know I have plenty of time to get her
closet room together, but I am feeling a little behind lately. I finally picked out a her crib and and a rug so now the fun begins! I chose a blue leopard print rug, which will be the main pop of color in the space, and here are a few blue and white inspiration photo's I am loving lately. Happy Monday!

Last Thursday we had freezing temps and 6 inches of snow fall on the ground... flash forward one week to today and it's all melted, and my entire yard is a mud pit. Don't get me wrong, I am soo happy for warmer weather, but I can't keep up with the dog towel laundry lately. All I have to say is thank the Lord for the fact that we have a mudroom. I never thought we would be in a house now, let alone one that has a mudroom so I shouldn't really be complaining about the weather. Our faux wood mudroom floor has held up so well with all the mud and water being tracked in over the past month. I am so happy with our decision to turn that random room into the most useful room (other than the kitchen of course) in the house. If you do not have an entire room to devote to a mudroom, a small wall or corner of your foyer can do the trick. Here are some great mudroom solutions I have seen lately, some of which are as simple as purchasing a piece of furniture from Home Goods or Ikea and hanging a few hooks on the wall.

With yet another snow day here in D.C. I have been longing for warmer spring weather. I must have been living under a rock (or piles of snow) for the past month because I had not heard of Lilly Pulitzer's collaboration with Target coming this Spring! I am not a huge Lilly fan in terms of their clothing, not because I don't love the vibrant colorful prints it's more the fact I can't pull the look off. However, the idea of having a Lilly Pulitzer cruiser bike, hammock, or patio umbrella makes me giddy! Lilly Pulitzer's team of talented designers developed prints exclusively for Target which I think is a great way to distinguish the Lilly Brand from the Lilly for Target brand. I have no doubt this collection will sell it out within a few days like the Missoni for Target collaboration did a few years ago. Mark your calendars for April 19th for the launch of the 250 piece collection and cross your fingers the snow has melted by then!!
