Life Lately, Loft, and Lilly Pulitzer

Happy first Monday of 2015! I have a big cup of coffee and I'm ready to tackle the day!

Are you all ready for the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale? It starts at 8am sharp today.  If you're not familiar it's a huge sale that Lilly does online only twice a year. You can get a lot of stuff for almost 50% retail prices! I suggest checking it out.  The also offer free shipping so if you  see something you like it's best to check out and then go back and shop again so you don't miss it!

I finally got a new camera! I went with the Nikon Coolpix L830.  I haven't used it too much but so far I really like it. I still need to read the whole manual and really learn how to use it but I snapped so really cute pictures of the kids so far. I promise to share a review once I've used it a little more. I decided to go with a point and shoot to start before I just plunged into a DSLR. Plus I was able to get this on sale for $199!

We decided to do some day drinking on New Year's Eve since we knew we weren't going out that night.  We met up with my sister and her husband in Baltimore at Cross Street market for some cheese fries and big beers.

Miller loves doing cheers with people. My parents taught him that.

In an effort to feel less depressed about this post baby body I decided to do a little shopping this weekend.  My parents offered to babysit so I could get the mall alone and it was so nice!  I stopped into Loft and found a few cute practical tops that are flattering and mom friendly! It had been a long time since I'd been in Loft but since I saw a lot of you talking about how good it was lately I had to check it  out.

I'm obsessed with this sweater. It's actually all in one and is really comfy and flattering. They have it in black and white online only which I might pick up too.

 Here are the other tops I picked up:

So comfy and flattering

I picked this one up in the cream and gray. Again cute and very flattering for the post baby body 

I really wanted this shirt after seeing it on Ally and a couple bloggers but it just isn't practical for me right now. If it goes on sale though I might snag it.

In a very rare event my first baby fell asleep on me yesterday. I could have laid there all day snuggling with him since he never ever wants to snuggle anymore.  I soaked up every moment of that hour.



  1. A friend of mine has the blue stripe top - it is so cute! What a deal on the camera. I'm debating the Lilly sale - I am a terrible impulse buyer because I usually return when I do and none of the sale can be returned! Love the picture of Miller sleeping on you! so sweet!

  2. I am so ready to go shopping for non-maternity clothes! Love those tops you picked from Loft! And that photo of Miller doing cheers is so cute, I have no doubt my husband will teach our little guy that eventually. haha
