5 on Friday: Lilly for the Boys!

How is it Friday?! Does anyone else feel this way? My week is SO thrown off from being gone Sunday-Wednesday of this week for The Southern C Retreat. Which, btw, was awesome (more on that later)!

Yet here we are at Friday, so I thought I would share five things I'm loving this week! 

{ONE} Lilly for the boys!

Want to know one of the only reason why I didn't want a boy when I was preggers (yes, I really did want a boy at first)? Because... Lilly wasn't making boy clothes. UNTIL NOW! They've just released a collection of a print that is so fun and called "Guac and Roll" and has mens and boys items. See it all here!
My favorites from this limited collection are these Mens Shorts, these Girls Bow Leggings and this little Boys Bowtie

{TWO} My new favorite "cool girl" dress.  

When I was packing for The Southern C Retreat, I was faced with the dilemma of it being fall, but traveling to a beachy paradise in 30A Florida surrounded by the most fashionable clan.

I found this dress on Shopbop and the floral print and short, flouncy frills made it appropriate for a summery setting, but the black backdrop and long sleeves helped it also transition to fall. Not to mention, it is extremely flattering! 

Paired with my nude gladiator sandals and tassel, very pale blush earrings and it was a success!   
 

{THREE} Ever heard of emotional labor? This is a must-read. 

One of my favorite blogs, Lemon Stripes, wrote a post about this article in her post here. It was a huge "aha" moment y'all. 

Please, please know that I 100% believe that I have the world's most amazing husband, and he splits everything 50/50 since we both work full-time jobs. I'm so very blessed! 

This article helped me understand my frustration and give a name to the state in which I've fallen so many times though. 

{FOUR}  The perfect ruffled sweater.  

I'm dreaming of cooler weather and this ruffle sweater is not only at the top of my fall weather wish list, but also on sale under $50 right now!

{FIVE} Catherine is a Southern Weddings/Cultivate What Matters team member!

If you're a frequent reader of this little blog then you're familiar with my friend Catherine of Classic Catherine, especially from this post. She welcomed us to DC when we first moved there (I don't know what I would have done without her y'all!) and has visited us here in Charleston as well. 

I'm so excited that the cat (no pun intended) is out of the bag and her announcement that she's now a member of the Southern Weddings and Cultivate What Matters team went live on their blog. She also wrote a wonderful post on her blog here too. I remember praying for her so often during the interview process. It's clear God has big plans for this sweet friend and Mama and I can't wait to follow along on her journey!

This 5 on Friday post makes me happy just reading over it! Especially with all that's going on in the world today. Sending out so many love and prayers. 💗
