Monday Musings + Lilly + $14 dress

Happy Monday! This past weekend, I enjoyed fun activities with my mother and my daughters. My mother treated me to a movie. I rarely have the opportunity to see a movie in the theater, so I jumped at her kind invitation. We always watched Saturday Night Live together when I was growing up, so we saw Sisters. The movie's humor was hilarious and we enjoyed it so much!

Later that day, we went to the mall so that Natalia and Alexia could browse a bit to spend some gift cards that they received for Christmas. Although I had not planned to visit Lilly Pulitzer, when I spotted cats in the store, I needed to see why these cuties were there! As it turned out, the store hosted a shop for a cause benefit, with 10% of sales benefiting Pet Connect Rescue. Natalia and Alexia begged me to adopt a kitten, but sadly, that is impossible right now.

So I did the next best thing; I supported a good cause by shopping! I picked up this adorable Isabelle Vest on sale along with some other goodies. The green sheen color perfectly complements my Pop print Murfee scarf. Vests and scarves add a pop of color to my winter wardrobe. Paired with a comfortable (and warm!) gray turtleneck dress, the look is colorful, warm, and seasonally appropriate.

I love the pop print with blue background. It's so festive and works well for any special occasion, such as a birthday, or anytime you want to add a little fiesta to your Monday.

The gray dress is actually a space dye color, adding depth and dimension to the simple and flattering silhouette. After reading the measurements on the website very carefully, I ended up ordering a small in this dress. I'm pleased with the length and overall fit. At only $14 with free shipping, I highly recommend this incredibly inexpensive dress!

P.S. Did you notice that I cut my hair? My stylist couldn't believe that I asked her to cut nearly 5 inches off the ends! I love the new look and it's so much easier to style.

Have a wonderful start to your week!
