A Lilly Look and After Party Adventures

First things first, who else has a Lilly hangover after a crazy day of shopping yesterday?  I can still hear that beautiful sound coming from my computer as I finally reach the front of the line.  Did everyone else have some success?  I feel like less items were disappearing from my cart versus previous sales, but I know just as many people were shopping because after my first check out, I went to number 40,000-something in line!  Make sure you read all the way to the end of this post to check out some of the items I grabbed, and links to some that are still available.  

I can't wait to get my new Lilly in the mail, but in the meantime, last weekend seemed like the perfect excuse to wear as much Lilly as possible (and remind myself why I needed more!).  In the past, I've been all about the more subdued patterns like Of Corsage and even had a lace overlay to bring down the level of bold on my bridal shower dress in the Mojo print.

But now, living my life as a wannabe Southerner for two years, I decided to go all out when I saw the You Gotta Regatta pattern in that Ritz Romper
This romper is the most comfortable thing ever.  I have been loving everything strapless this year, PLUS there are pockets.  Total win-win in my book!

I'm also wearing this pineapple necklace from Moon & Lola, a pair of gold earrings from a shop in Charleston called VestiqueFiesta by Essie on my nails, and flip flops that I got in a swap ages ago (similar style here - and on sale!). 
My mom was in town last weekend, so obviously we packed in as many Lowcountry things as possible into the last few days including adventures to Hilton Head Island and Kiawah Island.  This was the perfect look for a day strolling through Harbour Town.
And now for my favorites from the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale.  Of course, I bought a few things for myself, but also had fun shopping for matches looks for our goddaughters as well as a bunch of gifts to pack away until Christmas!  Full disclosure: I compiled this list last night at 10pm.  The links are to the items I purchased or to a similar item on sale, if possible.  I apologize if some items are not available when you go to shop!

Love the Lilly items you got! I got on at 8 and was on the site by 8:30 pretty good in my book! I did one check out and had my other computer ready so I was able to check out another cart full on my other computer. I only had one thing disappear from my cart this year! I couldn't believe it! I always use this sale to buy as many elsas as possible! I think I ended up with 3!

I love everything you purchased! I had no idea you could buy Lilly dresses with a lace overlay, your bridal shower dress was beautiful!

The romper looks great on you! I managed to snag a pair of shorts from the sale but otherwise I had to restrain myself!

Love that romper on you! And your picks from the sale are great, I was so sad that water bottle was sold out by the time I realized it was part of the sale.
