Lilly Pulitzer for Target

At a fabulous Four Seasons pool party in New York City last evening, the ever amazing Target just announced their new designer collaboration for spring will be with none other than Lilly Pulitzer! Known for her preppy, vibrant colored shift dresses, Lilly Pulitzer believed that “style isn’t just about what you wear, it’s about how you live.”

The line for Target will consist of 250 pieces of clothing, shoes, beach ware, accessories, beauty, and home decor. Pieces will range in price from $2 to $150, with over 200 items under $30! In addition, this will mark the first time that Target’s designer collaboration will include plus sizes.

The collection will exclusively hit Target stores as well as Target.com in the U.S. and Canada on April 19th and will feature 15 exclusive prints that were created exclusively for Target by the brand’s artists.

Target’s senior vice president for apparel and accessories, Stacia Andersen, said, “This spring, we wanted to offer our guests a collection that embraced color, print and pattern in a bold, fresh way. As we started to think about the perfect partner to collaborate with, Lilly Pulitzer was the clear choice given the brand’s inspiring heritage, authority with print and pattern and resort-chic aesthetic.”

So, what do you think? Will you be running to Target stores on April 19th to grab one {or two!} of these lovely pieces? I’m super intrigued to see the home decor pieces and can’t wait to get my hands on a few of those lovely printed pom scarves, towels, and throws!!

Gold Foil Monogram for Starbucks Gold Dot Traveler

I was beyond obsessed with the Starbucks Holiday ‘Dot’ Collection this year. Every single piece was so unique and just plain lovely. I had my eye on a few key pieces that I just fell in love with since the line debuted and am happy to report that I got both the Fingerprints Cold Cup Tumbler and the ever so beautiful Gold Dot Double Wall Traveler {sold out at Starbucks, but can be found on ebay!} for Christmas!

I was absolutely ecstatic when I happened to stumble across the most gorgeous gold foil monogram that fit perfectly within the circle on the Gold Dot Traveler from Etsy seller brush and bow. It was absolutely perfect and the most beautiful way to complete the already perfect Gold Dot mug. I swiftly purchased one and was even more impressed when it arrived in my mailbox a few short days later. I immediately applied the sticker to my mug and have been obsessed ever since. Isn’t it just lovely?

I am beyond obsessed with Etsy in general and spend quite a bit of time just browsing through pages and pages of gorgeous handmade items. I will be starting a “Friday Etsy Find” feature on my blog this week that will feature some of my favorite Etsy sellers and products! Check back every Friday for more handmade inspiration!

Adventures in 2015

On the eve of the last day off before my wonderful holiday break is over and I go crashing back into reality, I’ve taken a look back over the last 2 weeks. I must say, it feels like it’s been a lot longer {which is a good thing!} but I feel I’ve accomplished a few notable tasks to start the New Year.

The one large project that remains unfinished, however, is my faux fireplace project. We have all the cuts made, now just assembly remains. I have my handy architectural details on hand, but I still need my hubby’s muscles and unfortunately his schedule is less than ideal. I do, however, vow to get this thing completed before February rolls around… here’s to hoping!

Anyway, onto some of the things I’ve been up to. But first, a lovely little Flipagram to welcome 2015 and bid farewell to 2014.

Farewell 2014, Welcome 2015

I have checked off a very huge point on my ‘to do’ list – and that is finally getting curtains for our bedroom! I’ve had the curtain rods up and have been putting this purchase off for a good 6 months now because I had my eye on these beauties from West Elm for what seems like forever, but I just can’t spend almost $400 on curtains. I went to Bed Bath & Beyond a few days ago looking for a more affordable alternative to no avail, and then today on a chance run to Ikea, I found the perfect, and seriously affordable, set of curtains! They weren’t quite as perfect as the West Elm ones I’ve been in love with, but with a total price tag of $48 I just had to go for it! I bought them, quickly put them up, and couldn’t be more pleased! And I already have a DIY project in mind inspired by these lovely Anthropologie curtains that involves pom trim {my absolute favorite} that is sure to bump them to the top of my curtain leaderboard. I am super excited to see how this vision plays out, but in the mean time I love how they go so well with my bedding. They have a subtle texture that matches my Silver Stitch Pleat Duvet and Natalie Quilt perfectly!

Also found the most adorable pillow from Bed Bath & Beyond to put that finishing touch on our bed. I’ve been looking for the perfect throw pillow that was affordable with the right colors {white and a touch of silver} and when I saw this lovely little pillow I was over the moon! And bonus, it was on clearance for $24.99, then with my trusty BB&B 20% off coupon, it came to $20. So happy!

The original intent for my Ikea trip was to purchase throw pillows for my arm chairs that will be in front of my faux fireplace. I purchased two of these lovely little pieces a few months back and have been on the hunt for the perfect pillows… little did I know, I would end up finding them at Ikea too! I have plans to purchase some small {16x16ish} sequin pillows to give it a pop, but I’m super pleased with how lovely they look! I spray painted the legs of the chairs silver to match the legs of my dining table I just can’t wait to get that faux fireplace completed to see the whole vision come together!

Happy New Year!

Wishing you the Happiest New Year! May 2015 bring health, happiness, and lots of love. 2014 brought us many wonderful blessings – most notedly, we purchased and moved into our beautiful new {FIRST} home – but I have a sneaking suspicion this year is going to be the best yet! Happy 2015… may this be the best year yet!
