Lilly Summer 2012

So as I am sure most of you know that the 2012 Summer Collection are now on the Lilly website! The summer collection is always brighter and more colorful (if that is possible) than the other seasons and this year is no different! If I could I would order all of the following:
I love the flirty, fun style of the Georgie Dress and the Resort White Big Garden print is so girly!
And the Sarafina Dress please! Can you tell this is my favorite print from the collection?
I love Jarvey Skorts. They are so comfortable and I love this one in the Chum Bucket print. 
I also love the Franco Dress in Multi You Gotta Regatta. The back has a cute little opening and a bow!
And no warm season collection is complete without a pair of Callahans!

Not that Lilly is looking for my approval but with this collection she definitely got it!
Which pieces are your favorites?

Happy Shopping!

Running Skirts

As summer draws closer so does cross country season. And while working out who wouldn't want to look cute. Majority of the time it is a pure of nike shorts (norts) with a matching top and a ponytail but lately I have been loving running skirts. I don't own any running skirts at the moment but I would love to soon. Here are some of my favorites:
Lulu Lemon always has the cutest running skirts and I love the scalloped detailing on this one but it looks a little short.
This is another Lulu Lemon one I want...I have a weakness for ruffles!
This Nike skirt is equally as adorable!
And although this is technically a tennis skirt it could also make a really cute running skirt.
What do you think of running skirts?
Do any of y'all have a favorite place to buy running skirts?

I hope y'all have a great Monday!

DIY: Fancy Up Your Phone

Lately it seems like everyone and their relatives has an iPhone. Seeing as I have had the same iPhone for almost four years without it breaking I am very particular about my iPhones case. I have had a Lilly one on it for almost four years (probably about a month after I got the phone I ordered a Lilly one) and swear by it. Everytime I drop my phone I pick it up as one piece. I am very lucky. My friends who use Otterboxes don't have that kind of luck! *(As I am writing this I am thinking about how tomorrow I will probably drop my phone and it will shatter so fingers crossed that that doesn't happen.)* When my mom and I were in Orlando we had a ball at the Lilly Pulitzer store and my mom got me a new phone case for Easter since my other one was looking pretty rough. I love it but the only thing I thought it was missing was a monogram and let me just tell you I found a creative and new (I haven't seen this anywhere else so I am very excited about my originality) way to monogram your phone without having a monogrammed case. 
Exhibit A:

(I apologize for the bad quality of the pictures but I am using my macbook's photo booth. At the bottom I will attempt to include better quality pictures in case anyone wants to Pin this idea or share it with friends.)
Here is a picture of my case:

So how did I monogram the center button? I took a vinyl decal that I had in my desk drawer and realized that it was the perfect size to place over my iPhones button and ta da there you have it. When I put it on the button I was careful to line up the decal in the center so that the circle of the monogram matched the circle of the button and the rest is history. The decal I used was 1/2 inch high and I found that to work very well for me and I ordered them from GS Monograms. They aren't expensive at all and are a cute and creative way to spice up your phone!

I hope y'all enjoyed this DIY and email me a picture if you decide to do this because I would love to see them!

I would love to hear what you think! And like I said in the previous post I want to do a post answering any questions y'all want to know the answer to so feel free to ask about anything!
