I have always loved things that have a sparkle to them. Glitter, shimmer, sequins, you name it. I love it. I remember in college, I used to wear glitter makeup ALL. THE. TIME. Don’t judge too much, glitter eyeshadow was totally all the rage in 2003.

Yes, I totally quasi-matched Lilly for church on Sunday and knew that we had to take pictures. This is actually her Christmas dress and it still fits her! Huzzah! Gold is a color you can wear year round (in my humble opinion) and sure, our outfits COULD look Christmas-y if you really wanted them to, but I think they’re fun for any time of year.

Plus, if anyone fusses at us, I was just going to say we are celebrating Christmas in July. AMIRIGHT?

I tried this Lilly Pulitzer top on in the store when it came out back in January or something like that and I fell in LOVE with it. It’s one of those tops that is “okay” on the hanger, but once you put it on, it’s just gorgeous on. Well, I didn’t want to drop $168 for it at the time, even as pretty as it was.

I was out running errands a few weeks ago and stopped by the Belk at Crabtree Mall in Raleigh and they have a Lilly Pulitzer section there. Well, I saw the shirt, it was the only one left, it was in my size… AND it was 50% off. It was meant to be. I am so glad I got it! It was another instance of patience paying off. It is a shirt I KNOW I’m going to wear A LOT.

Side note: She loves it when her daddy swings her around…

Welcome to Let it Shine!

Welcome to the new, revamped Funday Monday link up! After two years, we decided to rename our link-up to something we felt was a better fit.

Welcome to Let it Shine! Why the name? Because, we want this link up to be just that: your chance to let it shine! We will be sharing our favorites each week here, AND on social media!

The biggest change? Monthly Inspirations!  Each month we will share some fun post ideas, one for each week.    Do you HAVE to follow the inspirations to link up? Absolutely not – as usual, you can link-up anything that you want to. Anything that makes you SHINE. BUT, if you’d like to be considered for a feature, those “favorites” will be picked from the inspirations only.
