Anchors & Mint

I am loving my new custom made anchor skirt by Hannah Everly. Not only does she design and make the most adorable & affordable skirts, she is super sweet! Check out her Etsy store ūüôā

I paired this anchor skirt with my all-time favorite color…mint. I love that both the print and the mint color say “Let’s do this spring!” Fair warning, this outfit will be on repeat during the summer as well.

I picked this outfit for my very first photo shoot with Tiffany Hainsworth. She was a doll to work with and was very patient with me and my inexperience. ¬†Hopefully I didn’t scare her off and she is willing to snap more photos of me in the future!

So tell me, what was your first time being photographed like?

Lilly Pulitzer for Target

You may be shocked by this, but I wasn’t one of the many women who woke up early to head to Target and snatch whatever I could get my hands on from Lilly Pulitzer. ¬†You may ask…Why? How? What’s wrong with you?

My response to that question is to answer with a question. ¬†Was this event a life or death situation? Would my¬†life have ended if I¬†didn’t go? For me, it wasn’t life or death and my life wouldn’t have come to an end because I didn’t make it there.

Was I curious about what would be there and if I actually would have been able to get anything? Yes, of course. But this weekend my parents, sisters and God mother came up to visit and spending time with them is more meaningful than standing in a line and waiting to spend my money on a few pieces that just about every other fashion blogger would be featuring. So, while I won’t be posting any Lilly Pulitzer clothes, shoes, accessories, home decor on my blog, I know I won’t regret my decision to stay home.

Family time has always been the most important aspect of my life and I know life isn’t over for me because I missed out on this event ūüôā

As the saying goes…

“Everything happens for a reason” OR “There’s a reason for everything”

I strongly believe in these sayings. There are times when I can’t seem to find the meaning or the reason why things/events happen in my life, but I also believe that I don’t always have to.¬† This winter storm hitting the north east is an event that is helping to keep my husband home for a few more days.¬† Prior to his arrival home from NY, he was told by his boss that he wouldn’t be able to get the week off even after it was approved.¬† So, there is my silver lining in the wake of this crazy storm (sorry to all those who are out there on that side of our country).

On another note, my journey for becoming a blogger & possibly a “style blogger” is starting to become more of a reality.¬† This past Christmas my husband bought me my first DSLR camera, perfect for beginner photographers; my Instagram account that I started last year of my daily #ootd is slowly but surely gaining more followers; and I finally took the 1st step to start my own blog.¬† See…everything happens for a reason!

Stay tuned for my first “Post It Tuesday” tomorrow!

Blessings x Love
