Floral Skirts + Fresh Tennies

Lilly Pulitzer Fabric Skirt | Preppy Pink Shop Etsy

Because isn’t that what spring is made of?

Just wanted to pop by + show off two new additions to my closet that are getting tons o’ use so far this spring!

Lilly Pulitzer Lucky Charms Skirt

White Tee, Sonoma | Lucky Charms Skirt, Preppy Pink Shop | Bow Ring, Kate Spade | Tassel Tote Bag, Old Navy | Lacoste Marice Sneakers c/o OnlineShoes

I’m a big fan of Keds, but these fresh Lacoste sneaks totally rival them. I mean, it’s way difficult to compete with slip-on shoes… I’ve been sliding them on and off daily this spring! They’re perfect for commuting too– the season of Uggs-before-heels has passed gals; load up on them tennis shoes.

Word to the wise, I found that this particular pair ran a bit big, so I would consider sizing down!

Preppy Pink Shop Skirt Review

If you’ve been reading [shell chic'd] for a while, you’ve probably come to terms with my addiction to Preppy Pink Shop goods [as seen here | here | and here, among elsewhere]. Justice makes the most darling + not to mention COMFORTABLE skirts around, and many in hard-to-find Lilly Pulitzer fabrics! I’m currently crushing on the Nautical Ships + First Impression prints [seriously, pre-order this now because it will NOT last!].

Miami Snaps

Button Back Dress; Jack Rogers

I had big, big plans for my camera on our trip to Miami last week, but for some reason down there, piña coladas and laying comatose by the pool became serious priorities, and Mr. Nikon didn’t see much outside of my suitcase.

I did, however, pull it out for a day that included shopping and eating our way down Lincoln Road [Havana 1957 is a MUST] and a walk along Miami Beach. I never thought a city like Miami would be very much my style, but my oh my it was hard not to love!

Going Green

Happy St. Patrick’s Day sweet friends! I hope you Bostonians are all recovered from yesterday’s Southie Parade and still able to look at green today. Lilly P sure knows how to do spring green… I’m in particular lust with a fun limeade shade they’ve got going on this year!

Date Night

Whether hanging with your sig-other or with your lady friends, I fully support + encourage dressing for Valentine’s Day. This year, as opposed to traditional pink or red, I have my heart set on a little white number, with some sweet pink accessories to stay in theme.

Make it a Double

Pink and Navy Winter Outfit

Quilted Jacket, Old Navy [extra 20% off with code JUSTFORYOU!] | Charter “Make It A Double” Sweater, Lilly Pulitzer [similar] | Jeans, H&M | Monogram Necklace c/o Onecklace | Navy Crossbody, Forever 21 | Glitter Loafers, J.Crew [similar 1; 2; 3]

Espresso! That is.

We were graced with such an oddly warm weekend… just enough time to grab an iced latte before the sky turned gray, the clouds opened up, the snow/rain began, and back to frigid it was.

I’m really struggling with this whole winter thing lately. Seven years of it apparently doesn’t make you stronger. BF is done with my complaining though– he told me to take a page out of Lilly Pulitzer’s book [is he learning or what?!].

Tipsy Tuesday No.9: Gatsby-Goers

Emily’s Tidbit Tuesday: when I’m not blogging, working, failing at cooking, or exploring, I’m usually at dance.

New Year’s Best

Since seeing O My Darlings‘s Calypso St. Barth gold sequin pants in this Glitter Guide feature, I’ve been a little obsessed with the idea of finding a pair of glittery britches! The idea of lounging around in daytime sequins is sort of fantastic to me, but New Year’s Eve would be the real occasion to show them off.

Loving Lilly at in the pink [Part 1]

In the Pink Boston

In case you’ve been living under a rock (or, ok, are new here!), you know I have a mild severe obsession with Lilly Pulitzer. The clothes, the story, the brand, everything. I’ve written before about how to find Lilly for less, as it doesn’t fit everyone’s everyday budget, but there is something to be said for a dressing room full of colorful shifts, sales assistants who know exactly how certain styles fit + what pairs well with pieces, and walking out of the store with that bright Lilly-filled shopping bag.

Which brings me to Lilly Pulitzer Signature Stores, and specifically, in the pink.

Lilly Pulitzer Store Boston

in the pink is the Lilly signature store serving New England. With locations in Boston, Mashpee, Cape Cod, Nantucket, and Martha’s Vineyard (you know I dragged BF to every single one of them), it’s the easiest way to shop for Lilly Pulitzer in this area. You’ll find way more of a selection in these boutiques than a department store, and the customer service is amazing, with sales associates who are experts on the brand and fits.

Newbury Street In the Pink

I stopped by the Boston location on Newbury Street to hunt for New Year’s Eve party looks [more on that tomorrow!], but I wanted to give you a little peek into the darling store first. Can you say Emily’s dream closet?

Day to Night Party Wear

Lilly Pulitzer’s gift guide obviously has me drooling, so I’ve put together a couple holiday outfits for different occasions using Lilly pieces, as well as some other favorites. I just love the idea of navy or cobalt for a Christmas party as opposed to traditional red or green, and I really think the Define Nice sweater must be mine for the holiday season, don’t you? A new take on ugly sweater parties :)

How will you be dressing up for all of your different events this holiday season?

And speaking of the season, more important than any Christmas dress, ugly sweater choice, or personal wish list is the idea of giving back this holiday. My dear friend is a child life specialist at a pediatric hospital in D.C., and is working on an incredibly selfless program for the families of her patients. She has created this Amazon wish list full of very simple items that could make a great deal of difference. Any little bit you can offer helps. If you would like to donate, please email me for the shipping address. Thank you all so much!

Caring for the needs of families requires that one be truly present to “be where your feet are” as a child life specialist once told me. This is especially true in a Pediatric hospital where often times one can be consumed by the sounds of ventilators, IV pumps beeping, and complex medical terminology. Four weeks ago, parents across our hospital found solace in a quiet room tucked away on the unit. There they joined in fellowship with one another, myself, and the Champlain. Over coffee, doughnuts, finger painting and coloring, parents, grandparents, and caretakers began to share a side of their stories not yet told. Their words and empathy, holding immense depth and comfort that can best be shared between individuals who truly understand what it means to have a sick child. The families at my hospital have requested the opportunity to come together once a week over coffee and breakfast to share with one another the ups and downs of caring for their hospitalized child. In order to host coffee hour weekly, I need your HELP! Currently a budget does not exist for this program and without your support I will be limited in what I can provide to families. I have created an amazon wish list with various breakfast items that could be stored easily and provided to families each Friday morning. 
With your help, I can bring these families together!
