Happy Thanksgiving from Darling In Lilly!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all are having a safe and fun time during this holiday! I will be staying home this weekend and having company come in tomorrow afternoon! I am here today to talk to you about how you can shop the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals anytime now! It seems like all stores are making Thanksgiving a week-long money spending time! Many years ago the deals were only on Black Friday, then years later Cyber Monday was included, and now you can shop great deals WEEK LONG!! I have been shopping so much lately this week already and it hasn't even been Black Friday or Cyber Monday yet!

So far, I have gone shopping at Pink Bee this past Saturday and purchased both of the Mia Leggings in black and navy. They are so cute on and extremely comfy to be leggings that look great on! I couldn't help myself, but I got both pairs. If you have had the Travel Pants from the past from Lilly, you will like these so much better! From November 24-27 there will be a GWP for Thanksgiving weekend; $75 spend is earrings, $150 spend is a bracelet and $500 spend is a jewelry box. On Cyber Monday, November 28, the GWP will be any spend items change every couple of hours and the $200 spend is a Water Bottle. From 12AM-10AM is a Travel Journal, 10AM-7PM is an Ornament, then 9PM-12AM is a Beverage Tote. I will be getting the Ornament and the Water Bottle, they both are so cute! I love the gifts for Cyber Monday better than the GWP for the weekend.

I also placed an order on Urban Outfitters Monday, I purchased three things I have been eyeing for a couple of months now and couldn't pass up 20% off my order! I bought this adorable peplum purple shirt that I tried on in the store before and loved it on but waited to see if I could get it cheaper. Then say this adorable laptop case and keyboard cover that I can't wait to put on (you really need to go look at them, just saying)! For Black Friday, Urban Outfitters has any apparel BOGO 50% off. Will be a perfect time to order some clothes you have been waiting for a while, or buy yourself a top and a friend a top!

Yesterday, I went to my local mall and just kept spending money! I went to Victoria Secret to return some items and ended up buying something else. They have some great deals going on, including the 50% off sports bras and sports pants. I purchased a new pair of leggings to work out in and couldn't pass up the print I found. Surprisingly I was able to find the print I got in the capri length (I got the full length), I was obsessed with this print as soon as I saw them. I knew I needed to get the pants, almost got the matching sports bra, but wasn't in love with the fit of it. PS: The print name is Cool Textile Stripe, the photo is unavailable for some reason (There is a small picture of the print when you hover over the print name). I also purchased a gift for someone during the deals and my mom purchased some things, so we were able to get the $75 purchase free tote bag & mini bag (which is so adorable and came with extra goodies). If you like anything from Victoria Secret, I recommend checking out the deals you can snag (so many)!

American Eagle has always been a good store I like to look through, cute trendy pieces you can find for a good price. They had 40% off of the Winter Collection, which was the majority of the store. I tried on a pair of jeggings and loved the fit, so perfect time to get the with the deal. I have had jeans from American Eagle in the past but grew out of them, so many years later I get a new pair of their jeans. I have always had a love-hate relationship with jeans, they have to be very comfortable and easy to move around in.

 

Other places to check out this shopping season:


Madewell is 25% off entire order


J.Crew is 40% off your order (plus they have never done this!) 


J.Crew Factory is 40-60% off EVERYTHING (online only)!


Belk has Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer for $8 & free shipping!


Kendra Scott has 20% off everything with the code SALE20 (including sale)


Tarte has 25% off your order + free shipping on $25 purchase

PS: 31 days till Christmas!


 

 

Oh Shucks

The print name says it all, Oh Shucks I am obsessed with this dress! I love the oysters so much more than I thought I would! The blues and green just scream an ocean stuck in a print. When I first saw this dress, I knew I needed it! I love these Pima Cotton dresses, they are so comfy and perfect for layering for chilly days. 

I knew having this dress, I needed to add my Abbott vest. It has been the best thing to add to any outfit that needed to keep me warm. I love vests and this one is perfect, with the gold color and the fringe trim it goes with so many Lilly outfits! Adding to the outfit I added Lilly Pulitzer jewelry, these new Stardust hoop earrings and the Leaf Me Alone bracelet were the perfect touch. I needed a good pair of hoop earrings the wear with Lilly and so far these don't disappoint. I love these banana leaf bracelet, so simple and perfect year round to wear.

I recently wore this dress while I was in Flordia, we went to Disney Springs and went to the Lilly store. It was a chilly night but still a little warm. By the end of the night (around midnight) I was then cold but thankfully there was a Starbucks in Disney Springs. This was my first trip to Disney Springs and I loved it!

Oh My Guava it's Lilly's Birthday

First wanted to recognize and say Happy Birthday to the Queen of the Jungle! Lilly Pulitzer has become a big favorite in my life since I started wearing it. I've been wearing Lilly for about 3 years now. I love each all the colors and designs that are put into the prints. The pieces I've been able to buy lately have been so unique which is another reason why I love Lilly Pulitzer so much.

This year I was talking to my mom that I wanted new luggage soon, I just had a Jessica Simpson suitcase that needed to be upgraded to more of my personality. Then once I saw the GWP for Lilly's birthday, I needed it! So it happened, I got the Oh My Guava suitcase! (I also got the rest of the GWP items)

This print is a print that definitely grew more and more on me. The colors are so vibrant and love the purple within the print! In Oh My Guava I got the Sorella Top (which I am wearing) then also purchased the Buttercup Shorts. I now have two outfits that I can pair with my suitcase whenever I travel! The small things in life just make me so happy (matching my suitcase, lol).

While purchasing for the GWP, I saw these lilac callahans and fell in love! The purple is so cute and the perfect shade to match this top. To just add the perfect amount of jewelry, I am wearing the Stardust Hoop earrings that recently came out also. They are very classy and perfect for any Lilly or preppy outfit!

Hope you like the outfit I chose to wear for Lilly's Birthday! I'd love to see what you wear as well!

Happy Birthday Lilly Pulitzer!

Aerie is Holiday Ready

I know, I know, it is crazy to already be talking about Christmas. It is a couple weeks before Thanksgiving and stores are bringing out the Christmas spirit! I love going on clothing websites and seeing a gift guide section with all the beauty products, accessories, and nic nacs! I have been thinking about what I want to get my friends for presents this year and Aerie has been a great place to look! I recently browsed to see what was some of the items, total surprised when I saw bath bombs and a bath fizzer! Aerie has a wide variety of items and prices to help find gifts for this Christmas to give. 

Bath Lovers: Have a big win from Aerie. There are so many products to help relax and make a bath great. I am a huge fan of Lush, but the closest store is over an hour away! I don't feel like ordering online because shipping gets pricey. With a different alternative, Aerie had many bath products I want to try for myself!

Beauty Obsessed: For the ones that love makeup and finding new beauty products! The Makeup Eraser should be an item that all girls need! It takes all your makeup off easily, by just adding water! Finding a palette that is affordable and the color are perfect is a package deal. Did I mention that is a palette with eyeshadows and blushes!? The last product that I thought was perfect, is an emergency kit! In one tiny bag, you have every possible thing you would need for a crisis to come up during a night out. (Even includes two Benefit cosmetic products!)

Cozy Up: Who else doesn't love a comfy blanket to cozy up in the cold months? The blanket I found is a faux fur one, I think it is beautiful (plus - like I said faux fur)! This was a pricey gift to be added, but it was just too cute not to add!

Popsugar Must Have Box | October 2016

I received my PopSugar must have box this past week and couldn't wait to tell you what I got in it! I have to be honest and say that I did look up spoilers before I received it. To be honest it made me more and more excited to get it! This has been so far one of my favorites to receive, mainly because of the Makeup Eraser Mini. If you haven't tried out The Makeup Eraser, this is the way to take off your makeup! It makes it beyond easy and saves so much money compared to buying remover wipes.  The mug that was included is super cute and love how simple it is. Thankful they included a hot chocolate to try as well!

The Shower Oil and Bubble Bath is perfect for what I have been wanting lately. It is an oil that goes on like soap so I can shave with it then it also is bubble bath! The perfect combination all in one, then the smell is perfect for the fall months! To make a bath so more relaxing a book was including that is written by the founder of PopSugar!

The last items included were an eyeliner and an umbrella. The umbrella is beyond adorable and originally more expensive than the box alone! The stripes are so cute and who doesn't need more umbrellas! The eyeliner is from Revlon, I have never tried one from Revlon. I can't wait to break it out and maybe have it be a contender of my favorites.



I wanted to share that you can now get $5 off your FIRST Must Have Box! Just use SHOP5 when you subscribe to the box!

Clarisonic Mia 2 Review

Have you ever considered a Clarisonic? If so, let me tell you my opinion on it. I got the amazing opportunity to receive a Clarisonic Mia 2 to review and share my thoughts on. I couldn't wait to get it in the mail and test it out. I have been using it for roughly two weeks now and love it. I use it every other day, mainly because I don't wash my face that often. I use the Makeup Eraser everyday to take off my makeup, then while in the shower I use the Clarisonic (yes, it's waterproof!).

How do I use the Clarisonic Mia 2? While in the shower, once I am ready to wash my face, I run the Clarisonic brush under the water. Then once the brush is wet, I put a generous amount of the cleansing gel around the brush. Then I turn it on and I begin washing my face for one minute (automatic shuts off)! The brush has a vibration buzz that happens (20 sec, 20 sec, 10 secs, 10 secs) it helps you control and know how much time to spend on each area. Once the Clarisonic turns off, I rinse my face off and then run the brush under the water to get the access cleanser off.

Would I recommend to a friend? Yes! The Clarisonic is so simple to use and makes washing your face so much easier. Without using the Clarisonic, I never knew how long I should be washing my face (plus didn't want to actually count 60 secs).

With Christmas coming around the corner, this is a great gift and a great idea to ask for as a gift! If you are interested in purchasing a Clarisonic for a gift or for yourself you can use HERCAMPUS to get 15% off your order that is available through November 20th to use! A Clarisonic is a gift for someone that loves to keep their skin clean and healthy or for someone who is struggling with skincare! Just go www.clarisonic.com/hercampus to check out Clarisonic products!


Clarisonic is a popular face washing brush that over 15 million use for daily use. A gentle brush that cleans your skin, gentle enough you can use it twice a day. It is #1 recommended skin cleaning device by US dermatologist. I was extremely privileged enough to receive the Clarisonic Mia 2 complimentary to review and share with you, my honest opinions about. This post is sponsored by Clarisonic and Her Campus Media. All opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Darling In Lilly possible!

Safari Sighted

Resort is here and a Safari was sighted in the collection. Many elephants are in this collection coming up. This print is an absolute favorite currently with the agate green Elsa that matches perfectly.  When first trying it on together, I wasn't sure if it was too much of this green, but the combination is super cute!  My obsession of Kelly Skinny pants has grown times 3 since I got the Tic Tac Tile ones. I saw a new pair of Kelly's were coming out and couldn't wait to try them on. I'm usually not a big fan of prints with elephants, this print was one I couldn't pass up. The colors in the print are so vibrant and unique, perfect for my wardrobe.

Let's talk about this top. Do I need to say more than FINALLY an Elsa top that is NOT silk! I have around six Elsa (silk) tops and extremely happy that this one is a different fabric. The color is Agate Green and there is also bomber blue one. I will say that it will wrinkle if you tuck it in, so it is more noticeable in the solid colors. Other than the wrinkling, I love this top and so tempted to get the bomber blue one.

The accessories are a huge feature in this outfit, I just got the necklace and bracelet to match many outfits (I want the earrings to tie everything together). The banana leafs are such a classic to match so many Lilly pieces, perfect for the Palm Beach look! I am carrying my Lilly crossbody bag that I have loved so much since I purchase, looks great with every Lilly outfit. The shoes, been shown before in past outfits, are by Vince Camuto.

Falling For Trendy Pieces

Fall is here, but the weather does not make it seem that way! With my blog being mostly about preppy and all things Lilly, I sometimes like to branch out and try different trends. I usually have a hard time buying other brands, mainly because trends fade in and out (Lilly is just classic). With fall here, new trends are out and everyone and their mom are wearing them. I love the cool colors that are worn; navy, gray, mauve, and browns.



During the fall, I think it is easier to try out new trends and play around with different outfits. The weather is cooler and in summer all you want to do is stay cool with the least amount of clothing. Some of my favorite pieces in fall are comfy, soft tops that can be layered or under a cute vest. Below I have many adorable trendy pieces that all are reasonably priced for finding unique pieces. I currently own the American Eagle cold shoulder top in tye dye color, I love how cute it is on and how soft the fabric is. American Eagle has recently stepped up their game, they have a line called Soft & Sexy which is the softest fabric I've felt! I love all the tops that have a ruffle bottom, such a flirty touch! So many places are trying to have the ruffle bottom, tie up shirt, and cold shoulders or off the shoulder tops. You most likely can find these trendy pieces anywhere you go!



Cold Shoulder?

Have a cold shoulder? No, not this fall, maybe by the time winter comes. It is the beginning of October and still in the 80's where I live. I can't believe it is fall and all I want to wear are my summer shorts and dresses. Pants are such a pain to wear right now! Because my closet is half Lilly Pulitzer, I needed some fall clothes to wear for this 80-degree weather. I bought this cold-shoulder dress from TJ Maxx recently and thought it was perfect for transitioning into cooler days. My mom and I went on a hunt to find pumpkins to try Pinterest DIY decorations.

I always love fall decor, with the neutrals and dark colors are always a nice change for once. Don't get me wrong, I love my bright colors. Sometimes it is nice to be able to throw on a neutral colored top and a pair of booties. Some of my favorite fall colors are maroon or burgundy and then brown! Black is usually not a color I am drawn too, lately, I have bought two LBD (which is so odd for me).

Let's talk about the outfit. The dress like I said before is from TJ Maxx, I found a similar one here. The sunglasses I recently purchased off Amazon, can you believe that (and for $4)! My boots, I have been obsessing over from Vince Camuto, I love the open toe and fringe detail (perfect fall booties)! My hat featured is from the POPSUGAR must have box that I received this month, I am not usually a hat person but this one is super cute for fall!

Tic Tac Tile Till Fall

Why doesn't Lilly Pulitzer carry more of these Kelly Pants? I am beyond obsessed, I have owned these for a couple months now and wear them like crazy. They are beyond comfortable and so easy to wear. These are from the Fall collection in Tic Tac Tile print. The colors are so pretty in this print and so many tops can be paired with themI have learned that if I find a pair of Kelly pants that I love, to get them asap. These pants are now a must-have in my closet, I want so many pairs. They have the perfect amount of stretch and fit just right. This pair will always be a huge favorite now, mainly because I can pair so many shirts with this one print. I have each of these shirts below except the open shoulder one, I especially love the one shoulder top I am wearing below.

Let's talk about these shoes now. I finally have a pair of open toe shoes, and they are open back (plus the fringe)! I love booties for the fall and this color option is always a favorite of mine. Having a pair of booties to pair with a fall pair of pants or fall dress, is a huge staple. So many places now have the open toe booties, which will be very popular this fall.

How to tell if you are FALL obsessed

We are all having a fever of being too hot from this summer heat. The summer we will miss is not having to take classes or doing mountains of homework assignments. Now that school has started, summer can go away until next year. I am craving everything FALL! Ever question if you are obsessed with fall? I have put my twist of being fallsessed.

You bought a fall dress in July - Majority of stores and brands start releasing their fall shipments in July and August when those are the hottest months of summer! Once September comes, that is usually when it begins to cool down below 90 degrees in South Carolina. Even though my body can't handle the heat and I only want to wear shorts and tank tops; I am guilty of buying my first Fall dress July 13. Can you blame me? As soon as I see new arrivals, I just have to purchase ASAP!

You have enough vests for each day of the week - If you have more than three vests, you are vest obsessed. If you are vest obsessed, you are fallsessed. I currently own 9 vests, with one on the top of my wish list! That makes it so easy to wear one a day for a week! I love wearing them everywhere; class, work, and shopping!

Plaids are considered obvious - Once it is time to put on a long sleeve shirt, plaids and flannels are in the part of my closet where I can see first!

Pumpkin Spice Lattes already released - PSL was released at the beginning of September, the craze it out and let everyone run to them. I am guilty of liking the PSL, however, I am more of a Gingerbread Latte kind of girl.

Bean Boots are worn even if not raining or snowing - Calling myself out on this one way too much. I wear my bean boots constantly during fall and winter. I get my use of bean boots many times. If it is raining or snowing I will definitely wear them then, but I wear mine at least 3 times a week.

Shep Shirts and Popovers - Popovers and shep shirts are just as important as plaids and vests. On days where I don't want to coordinate an outfit I through on one and just put on my daily Kendra Scott necklace and a pair of bean boots, I'm ready to go.

Football Games - When you get excited to either watch your team play on Friday or Saturday, those 4 hours watching the game are tense. The excitement if your team does great or annoyed if they can't get their act together. In the end, all you want is that win. Year round, I try to find an outfit with my team colors and when you find it, you are so excited to wear it.


LBD at its Finest

Fall is slowly creeping upon us. I wish it would come just a tad faster, I am tired of all this heat! I have been on the hunt to find a trendy dress for the upcoming fall. AND to find a LBD dress to go with these Sam Edelman boots I purchased last year. I have a huge obsession with Sam Edelman shoes and these were a pair I couldn't pass up last year. You can still find this style to shop this year, just not the print.

This dress was selling fast in my Target store, I couldn't find it online so I linked three other options. If you are interested in a black trendy dress, I recommend getting a bell sleeve dress. I am also loving the crossing at the neckline, so cute and similar to the tie-up neckline.

one  |  two  |  three


Target has always been a place to find outfits that are within the trends and for a reasonable price. I don't buy that much in their clothing, but when I do it's a great piece to not leave behind. This dress was only $28 I believe and that beats multiple places for an adorable dress. Last year I purchased another dress that I love and can't wait to bring out to wear this fall again.


With fall coming up, I am beyond excited to pull out cozy clothes to wear. Also being able to wear long sleeves and not sweat when walking outside. Don't let this black dress phase you, Lilly is still a main option in my closet. Sometimes I like to change things up, so trust me Lilly is worn still many times out of the week.
