Friday Five

Hope y'all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend and that your summer is off to a great start! I hope to be more faithful about blogging this summer. Summer is my favorite season so it shouldn't be too difficult. I'm linking up with the Five on Friday crew again. Here is what I'm loving this week:

1. Lilly Pulitzer Eliza Dress in Tusk In Sun

A couple weeks ago I went into the Lilly store to look at the Madeline sunglasses I had seen online. As soon as I walked in, I saw this Tusk In Sun Eliza Dress and had to try it on! Tusk In Sun is one of my favorite Lilly prints ever and this summer Lilly has brought it back in a few items with a navy and white color scheme. The Eliza Dress fit like a dream and I had to buy it. Since the print isn't super summery, I will be able to wear this dress year-round. It will look cute with bare legs and sandals now and also with tights and boots in the fall/winter. The new Tusk In Sun items are not available on the Lilly Pulitzer website, but you can call or visit any store. In addition to the Eliza Dress, Tusk In Sun comes in Callahan shorts and a Riley Infinity Scarf.

2. C. Wonder Love Knots Earrings
I have been meaning to post these for awhile. One of my favorite birthday presents from a couple months ago was this set of three pairs of knot stud earrings from C.Wonder. The white ones literally go with everything, the navy ones go with almost everything, and the pink ones go with a ton of stuff as well. I have already worn these so many times.

3. Minnie Mouse Notepad
One of my good friends went to Disney World recently and brought me back this precious Minnie Mouse notepad with matching pencil. 

4. Pool Season
Warm weather is finally here to stay, and one of my favorite summer pastimes is lounging by the pool with a cold drink and good book. I got to do some of that over Memorial Day weekend.

5. Lilly Pulitzer Riley Infinity Loop Scarf in Sunnyside
I have so many Lilly scarves, but most of them are Murfees. I barely have any infinity loop scarves, so when I was visiting a friend over Easter I bought the Riley Infinity scarf in Sunnyside at the local Lilly store. I love this adorable lion print! The Riley scarves are also a bit more lightweight than the Murfees, which is nice.

Have a great weekend!

Friday Five

I'm back after taking a few weeks off, and am once again linking up with Natasha at Hello! Happiness and friends!

1. Lilly Pulitzer Elephant Bangle
This precious elephant bangle came as an gift with purchase with the Lilly stuff I got for my birthday! I can't get enough elephants! Sometimes I have problems with cuff bracelets because my wrists are so small, but I haven't had any problems with this one staying on.

2. Lilly Pulitzer Button Earrings
These gorgeous Lilly Pulitzer button earrings were the other gift with purchase that came with my birthday present. They are exactly like the buttons on Lilly Elsa tops, as well as the charms that come on certain belts and zipper pulls. They are a classic piece that will go with everything!

3. Fresh-picked Strawberries
This past Tuesday I went strawberry picking with some friends at a local farm. It was so much fun and there's nothing that says spring like freshly picked strawberries! I have enjoyed eating mine plain as well as with angel food cake and Cool Whip.

4. Dairy Farm Ice Cream
I supported another local farm this week- a dairy farm and creamery that has DELICIOUS ice cream made with milk from the cows that are right there on the farm. 

5. College Baseball

This spring I have really enjoyed taking in some college baseball games. I have gone to a Clemson game and a UNC game. Although my primary allegiance is to UNC, I have a dear friend who is a hard core Clemson fan, and will go wear orange to a game with her, as long as they aren't playing UNC of course!

Hope y'all had a great week! Enjoy your weekend!
