It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year, and I’m not talking about Christmas. If you’re not a Lilly Pulitzer fan, you probably aren’t familiar with the After Party Sale. Unlike most brands, Lilly doesn’t have a sale section on its website. Instead, they have a sale every summer and winter that is complete madness but also so much fun! It’s filled with surprises and requires you to be pretty laid back … or else you’ll probably be anxious the whole time. When is Lilly Pulitzer’s Summer 2018 After Party Sale? No one is sure because it’s always a surprise, but we can guess based on past After Party Sale dates.
Hi, loves! I’ve had the busiest weekend ever — yesterday was my sisters’ birthday, so we spent the night at Universal Studios! They turned 21, and it was so much fun celebrating them. I seriously can’t believe they’ve grown up so much! I also had an interview with Discovery ID for a true crime show releasing next year, and I can’t wait to share it with y’all once I have more info. Lastly, Vagner’s best friend is getting married this weekend, so we’ll be partying all weekend long. Of course, Memorial Day means that it’s a holiday weekend, so there are a ton of sales you don’t want to miss. Here are some of my favorites.
Y’all, some fun news: In case you didn’t see it on my Instagram, I’m collaborating with Lilly Pulitzer! Seriously, every blogger has a dream collab, and this is mine. Their team sent me this amazing romper, and I don’t want to take it off.
But two years ago, I would’ve cringed when I got it in the mail. Here’s why: I’ve always tried to hide my flaws and dress strategically, but ever since I realized that self-love was improving my fashion sense, I’ve avoided “flattering” clothing. I don’t mean that I’m dressing to look poorly, but I’m ignoring the traditional fashion rules about what is and isn’t flattering.
Happy Tuesday, y’all! It’s been such a busy two weeks, and I’m finally taking a bit of a break. I spent today at Starbucks (work from home perks) and on the couch. It was actually a relief to not do anything after work, since we’ve spent so much time catching up with old friends now that we’re back in town. One of the fun things that happened during these busy weeks was a photoshoot with Emily Staubus, an INCREDIBLE photographer who I went to college with! She’s a photographer by night and engineer by day, which is honestly like Hannah Montana but a million times cooler.
Happy Thursday! This week has been moving so slowly but also been so busy, which is strange! I just feel like the days are flying by as Vagner job hunts and we both get settled in and catch up with old friends. Today, I’m sharing the perfect spring shoe. I seriously bought it in three colors because I love it that much! They’re cute, easy to wear, and best of all, affordable!
Breaking news: I’m not a size 0.
Of course, if you’ve ever seen a picture of me, you’re probably like, “well, duh.” I’m usually a size 12 or 14 at most stores, and I go from medium to XL depending on sizing. It sounds silly to say I’ve struggled with this when the average American woman is a size 14, so I’m in good company, but I’ve tried pretty much every weight loss scheme. When I was a teenager, I saw a therapist because my relationship with food was disordered, and I coped in some unhealthy ways.
