It's Official....

Spring is here but it sure doesn't feel like it. It's windy and cold here in NJ :(

Nothing gets me in the mood for Spring like a little Lilly Pulitzer! I have been having a roller coaster relationship with Lilly the last couple of years b/c 1. I really believe you can have too much of good thing (this rule only applies to adults - it is always adorable on the kids) and 2. I do hate to pay full retail and her stuff is definitely pricey. I am a super sleuth on ebay and a whiz at sniffing out sales, so part 2 usually works itself out.

My mother in law was here yesterday and gave Kay and Ms. C the CUTEST Lilly dresses for Easter. She always finds really cute things, she is very stylish :)

For Kay..she got this ruffle sleeve dress - I am completely in love with it. Kay looks so great in too, she is very tall and very slim. I on the other hand might look like one of the hippos from Disney Fantasia in this, but on Kay it's perfect (and is longer in length on her than this model thank goodness!!!)

For Ms. C this adorable classic Lilly shift. I love the smocking and the petal sleeves.

As I was just browsing one of the Lilly sites, I have to say I love this strapless dress. I am bordering on too old for strapless but with a cute white cardigan this could be really cute if you had somewhere fun to go! It reminds me of a hostess cupcake, so I think that's why I like it! I would choose the navy one.

And last but not least, I had to laugh. Mr. KB would most definitely opt to be tarred and feathered over stepping out in this - ha!

Have a great w/e! We have lots of running around to do, so I'll check back in Monday! Happy Easter if you celebrate! xo, Brie

I don't know many men who would be caught dead in Lilly although I would like to meet one!

Happy Easter from one windy Jersey town to another!

That is one of those outfits that the husband and I say to each other, "If I ever get old and senile and wear something like that, please just shoot me and put us all out of our misery."
