Scenes From Our Weekend + Lily Pulitzer After Party Sale!

Aug 22, 2016

I hope everyone had a great weekend! 

First and foremost the Lily Pulitzer After Party Sale starts at 8am today!  There will be new items today and tomorrow!  I am hoping to snag a few goodies for Frances Moon!  

My personal favorite is the Elsa Blouse.  I have it in hot pink and love it.  I am hoping to get another color or pattern during the sale!  I am wearing an XS in this blouse I found that it runs on the larger side.

I bought this dress over the Summer and just love the loose fit and embroidery.  Hopefully it is part of the sale!

Embroidered Dress

I love the Lily Shifts for the little girls.  Some of my favorite dresses Frances owns!  These are top on my list of what I want to buy!

Little Shifts

Friday my mom and I did a little shopping downtown.  

I got to see all the new fall Mara Hoffman at Finicky Filly and loved so much of it especially this dress.  I can’t wait to wear this once the weather gets a bit cooler!

Friday night we had happy hour with our next door neighbors.  I made mini caprese bites that were delish- this rose is also really good.

The kids just adore Rick and Gary, our next door neighbors.  That is Rick with Sterling he shoots my blog photos sometimes:)   Gary is pictured with Frances.

and I adore them too!

My mom found me some new end tables in Charlotte and brought them back for me.  We are slowly making progress in our den.  I am loving how it is all coming together.

Sterling went to the aquarium with our good friends Saturday so Frances and I went fabric shopping for my cane back chairs.  I picked up these samples at GDC Home.  

This was Sterling at the lego exhibit at the aquarium.  He had a blast!  I highly recommend for any locals or out of town visitors.  That shark is made out of all legos- how cool is that? 

The most delicious tomato sandwich with my Farmer’s Market tomatoes. 

I met my girl Caycee for some afternoon wine.  We always love The Avondale Wine and Cheese bar.  They have this triple cream brie that is amazing and we also really loved the smoked olive oil! 

What I wore.  This is the same blouse I wore Friday night but in a different color.  They are my favorite off shoulder blouses.  Size down as they really run on the large side, I am wearing an XS.

Sunday Frances Moon and I went to church.  She really wanted to come sit with me instead of the nursery so I figured why not.  Once we were inside she goes “What is this place?”  I relied it’s church.  She then says ” well it sure doesn’t seem very fun.” haha!

Pool time that afternoon after we dealt with Roto Rooter for 4 hours!!  Say what?? The kids had clogged up our toilets pretty good.

Hat | Bag | Suit | Sarong | Sunglasses

That night for dinner we ate at Ellis Fish Camp.  Matt had dinner plans with a friend visiting so I took the kids.  Such gorgeous views and our food was really good too!

I love their wedge salad and fried okra!  Clearly my diet starts back today!  

Have a great Monday and good luck shopping the Lily Sale!
