Strawberry Picking at Mercier Orchards | Simple OOTD

Strawberry Picking | Simple OOTD

My mom drove up to visit for Memorial Day. We went to a Braves game, had a great brunch in Kirkwood and worked on my apartment… but the highlight of the trip definitely was strawberry picking at Mercier Orchards.

If you remember the last time she visited, we road tripped up to Blue Ridge (about an hour and half drive) to go apple picking at Mercier. Apple picking was fun but strawberry picking was even better. The weather was gorgeous. We went on a weekday so it wasn’t crowded and we took our time sampling the two varieties of berries, picking the best ones on the vine. It’s $10 per person (with a special deal for the kiddos) and you get a gallon bucket to fill to your heart’s content. We definitely got out money’s worth. I have strawberries in every nook and cranny of my fridge and freezer!

When we were in the field, I did get a few pictures before I splattered strawberry juice all over my white t-shirt. Note to self, do NOT wear white while strawberry picking. It’s just a recipe for disaster. At least my Lilly scarf covered it up pretty well. 😛

Beast Mode for Pink Friday | #LillyForTarget

#LillyForTarget Haul

So… who doesn’t have a crazy #LillyForTarget story? Maybe it’s because I grew up in Florida and live in the South but EVERYONE I know shopped at Target to battle it out for a pink and green shift on the 19th.

Some stayed up all night scrolling through the #LillyForTarget feed for the elusive mobile links that led to rompers, and home wares before the official launch time. Some, like myself, staked out their local target and waited, for what seems like forever, for them to open before running through the aisles grabbing nail files, makeup bags and the #HolyGrail espresso mugs.

I visited the Target in Little Five Points (an all around hipster target) and got there around 7:20 with Starbucks in hand. I thought I was going to eat my bagel in the car before moseying up to the door around 7:45. Boy was I wrong. There were already around 15-20 people in front of me and I ended up having to stand in a cold drizzle for a few minutes.

Lilly For Target Line

All of the women around me were ranting about the website and some drove in from the suburbs to visit my hipster Target. They were visibly upset about the website. I said something about how the Lilly sales always crash the site and a soccer mom shot back ‘Well this is different. It was worse.’ The line was experiencing some #FirstWorldProblems that’s for sure.

Eight o’clock finally rolled around and they let us in the door. Everyone booked it for the clothes when I ran (not a small feat in jelly jacks and a piko dress) to the home wares. I was one of the first people there and got EVERYTHING I wanted in the home section. I ran back to the clothing but it was too late. Everything was gone. One lonely XXL dress hung on the Lilly for Target rack. When I blinked, it was gone too.

Lilly for Target Fitting Room

After rifling through the beauty products, I went to go wait in the fitting room area waiting for cast offs with the other Lilly lovers. I ended up getting a pair of WAY too big shorts, a shift dress and another dress for a friend. I bought some baby clothes for my sister’s friend then I finally checked out.

I spent triple what I thought I was going to spend but yet, I want more. Why? I have no clue.

I think I’ve visited Target at least half a dozen times since the launch. #LillyForTarget has become my obsession. I’ve gone during my lunch break and after work. I ask customer service and the fitting rooms for the castoffs. But, are those pom pom shorts really worth it? Would I even want them this bad if they were readily available? I think I just like the thrill of the chase.

Lilly Pulitzer for Target

Is it April 19th, yet? The Lilly Pulitzer for Target lookbook has gotten me even more excited for this collab, if that’s even possible. 

// All Pictures are from Lilly Pulitzer x Target

I love everything. I’m still a little hesitant about quality but the prices are too good to pass up! I’ve started to create my wish list. The top item is the blue and white pom pom shorts. I dont think they will look good on me but I don’t care. I NEED those shorts. I also am obsessed with all of the print dresses and the romper.  Those printed coffee mugs are also a must-have for my coffee nook. I need to whittle this list down a little bit, well– a lot, but I’ll be staking out my Target on April 19th to get some of the fabulousness!

After Party Sale Haul

Last daySource: Lilly Pulitzer

This is it. Today is the last day for the After Party Sale. I ended up with some great stuff during this year’s sale and there’s still lots of goodies on the Lilly website.

Here’s what I got during the After Party Sale!

mai tai scarf

Murfee Scarf in Mai Tai $118 $29

I LOVE this print and it’s been my iPad background since it came out. I’m excited to finally have a piece in this print. In my experience, scarves always sell out first. So I checked the scarves right at 8 to snag this. I think it sold out within the hour. PS this also came today. Talk about fast shipping!

phone case

Lilly iPhone 5s Case in Resort White Coastal Patch $32 $9

I’ve been rocking the same Kate Spade silicon case I found at Norstrom Rack since I got my new phone last winter. I was looking for a new case to change it up and this one was too cute to pass up. The Lilly cases have drastically upgraded their quality from the earlier cases so I’m excited to get this in the mail.

leigh trouser

Leigh Trouser in Navy $168 $39

I’ve been looking for some navy pants for work and I thought these were a good deal. I haven’t bought trousers from Lilly so hopefully the fit and quality are there. I think these will be a great piece for Fall/Winter.

beach sweater 2

Marielle Sweater in Watermelon $98 $29

This is another piece I wanted to take me into Fall/Winter for work. I’ve been wanting this sweater since it came out last Christmas so I’m excited for it to arrive! I’m a little nervous about this one shipping. I bought the pants and this in the same order and the pants shipped but this hasn’t yet. Cross your fingers this isnt sold out!

boarding bag

Boarding Bag in Navy $198 $49

This was a last minute impulse buy. Last Christmas, I almost bought the Mai Tai version with my Christmas money. The Mai Tai sold out by the time I say it but I’m glad I got the navy instead. I know this will be a great purchase and work well for travel. I also bought a little green makeup bag for $9 with this order. I think the two will work well together.

Bonus Tip

After the sale is over, be on the lookout for Rue La La sales. Every time Lilly has a sale like this, they usually have a Rue La La sale the week after.

 

Did you buy anything from the sale?

C. Wonder Event with A Preppy State of Mind

Take me out to the ball game…

Braves Game

My sister and I at a Braves game last summer.

Since moving to Atlanta, I’ve only been to a few Braves games but I’m always wanting to go to more. There’s nothing more fun than to hit up a Braves game on a weekend and just spend the day hanging out with friends, drinking Sweet Water, and eating some baseball food.

I have been loving Krista Robertson’s new series on her blog Covering the Bases. She’s been posting outfit posts for each MLB team, including menswear ideas and guest bloggers. It’s such a great idea and I’ve been checking her blog everyday to catch the new look! Get it? Catch 😛

Krista hasn’t gotten to the Braves, yet, but she got me thinking about what I like to wear to Braves games. Baseball style forks in two different directions for me; casual fun and girly (think SEC football game).

Braves Casual Baseball Style | www.flonmymind.com This outfit is cute and spirited while still being practical for a sporting event. The cross body bag keeps you hands free and the koozie will keep your beer cold. My Target has tons of Braves gear, including glitter koozies, so it’s easy to dress in the team colors. Old Navy also has MLB merch that’s pretty affordable including the v-neck shown. While perusing Polyvore, I saw the Alex and Ani bracelet which is such a cute touch.

This outfit looks very put together but it would be so comfortable for a summer night. I wish Lilly Pulitzer still made this Cassie dress. I have it in green and it’s a great way to look cute without having to deal with straps, buttons and zippers. I think it would look great with a red statement necklace and your trusty cross body bag and jacks. When I’m wearing something like this, I think a a hat or koozie with the logo is a nice touch and really pulls the look together.

I also think this would be a great date night look to watch the game. By the way, a baseball game would be such a fun date! I need to figure out a way to get asked to one. 😉

Have you been to a baseball game this season? What do you like to wear to the ball park? Let me know in the comments below!

Kiss Me I’m Irish

I know St. Patrick’s Day is this Monday but, let’s face it, this drinking holiday is celebrated on the weekend.

I’m going to be going to a parade and then day drinking all day with some friends so I want to wear something casual and festive but still cute (for all of these Instagram posts). Here’s what I’m thinking about wearing.

St. Patricks Day Style | www.flonmymind.com

Polyvore Set

I have a green top that I’m going to pair with jeans. I wish I can pair it with that orange necklace from Bauble Bar but I sadly don’t have it. (It’s going on my wishlist for sure!) So, I’ll probably end up wearing some cheap beads. I’m going to be wearing boots in case it gets muddy and a cute cross body so I can be hands free.

I’m also going to Target tonight in hopes of finding some cute buttons and maybe a koozie. Hopefully, it isnt sold out of St. Patrick’s Day stuff by the time I get there.

Are you doing anything fun this weekend for St. Patrick’s Day? Let me know in the comments below!
