You could tell me it was February, you could tell me it was June, and I’d believe you. I don’t remember April even happening, and yet here we are four days from the end of the month. I’d be lying if I said my head was anywhere other than work, husband, fam, and remembering to shave my legs now that sundress weather has almost reappeared, but here are just a few things distracting me this April::
Celebrate // In true fangirl fashion, I ordered LC’s newest book–over under–six months ago, and it has delivered and then some. Now I’ve become obsessed with refreshing my glassware collection and tackling my fear of dinner parties.
“Preppy” Poms & Tassels // I do love this spring trend, but more than anything, I’m so incredibly amused at how the self-proclaimed prepsters of the world have jumped on such a bohemian look. Fringe-trimmed off-the-shoulder top paired with pearls and pineapple-printed shorts? I love it, but joke’s on you sorority sistah.

New England Daytrips // I’ve felt so lost without these, the blog has felt empty without these. We took a quick drive up to the North Shore on Sunday and it felt sodamngood to be back. We’re headed to Block Island this weekend, but for more local travel inspiration, I want you all to pay my friend Seacoast Lately a visit. She covers what to see, do, and eat in the Seacoast region and beyond, and she even let me pop by to chat about my favorite Boston springtime traditions.
This is Why Women are Obsessed with Lilly Pulitzer // This article is so real it hurts. A long but worthy read that #nailedit and so perfectly illustrates the cult of Lilly. I want to print out and frame half of Emily’s quotes.
MiniLuxe Chestnut Hill // Hot dang, MiniLuxe’s new Chestnut Hill location is noiiiiice. On top of it’s huge, pristine interior, MiniLuxe has a great mission statement that I really hadn’t paid too much attention to before–clean is their culture; they’re all about clean business, clean ethics, and clean methodology–all of which I saw and experienced upon visiting their newest salon at The Street. It’s hard to picture going for that #manipedi anywhere else after chatting with/getting pampered by them.
And hey! If you’re in Boston tomorrow (4/28), come out to in the pink on Newbury between 6 and 8 for a little pre-Kentucky Derby shopping party. Because no one does Derby season like Lilly does, and shopping without some bubbly is just another errand. I’d lurve to help you pick out some prints for your May 7th festivities. And sorry did I mention treats?
