First off, thank you all SO much for the outpouring of love and sweet comments on my last post. My readers are truly the best, and a few of you made me tear up. It really encouraged me so much!
I have a few minutes off of my mom uber duties this morning during basketball camp, so I thought I would dash off a quick post. We have a few outdoor weddings and events to go to this summer and I ordered a few new dresses to try out for the occasions. I snapped some quick iPhone shots in my mirror while I tried them on to share with you all.
This is the first of my half-arsed blog posts for the summer, so let’s all pretend I steamed all the clothes, set up the nice camera, that I don’t have 3 lbs of dry shampoo in my hair, and I took more than 10 minutes to write this – deal? Oh, and I ordered several pairs of shoes to try too, but they are living the high life with my UPS guy apparently, so also pretend I have on shoes that go a little better with these dresses. Now that everybody is firmly in make-believe-land with me, snap back to reality as I actually hit every price point from $25 – $100, so there is a little something for everyone.

I love the classic feminine feel of the pleated skirt on this one and the price point cannot be beat!
This simple knit navy dress is so easy to throw on with flip flops and a jean jacket for a more casual look. Add heels and some gold jewelry like I did here for an evening out.
I love the flowy feel of this yellow maxi dress and it could definitely be dressed up or down as well. It also comes in a few other colors.
A good wrap dress is always nice for summer and this one is very flattering across the tummy area for us moms.
Aaaaand… I’m just realizing now that I forgot to snap a pic of the jumpsuit, so you will have to believe me that it’s super cute!
You can click on any of the bold words below to check out the dresses.
Oh and here is the cute Target clutch I’m holding in a few of the shots.
And my shoes.
Ok, now for that giveaway! I’m so excited to share these pretty jewelry pieces from Amelia Lawrence Jewelry. And excuse the up close and personal selfie, but I wanted to show you up close how pretty these pieces are on. PS – I get asked for my secret all the time when I’m “tan” – if you need a good self-tanner this is the one I use!
Amy reached out to me to ask if she could send me some jewelry and I was immediately drawn to her simple and delicate designs. I’m not a huge statement jewelry person as I feel a little like a clown in big earrings or a bright necklace, but her pieces are SO my style and perfect for layering. I usually wear a trio of 3 simple gold necklaces together, but this one is my absolute fave.
Here is a close up of the Leyanah Arch I’m wearing.
And the Marquise Hoops are perfect to throw on for every day and they are so lightweight.
I’m actually giving away a pair of these earrings and this necklace over on my Instagram page later today. Just comment on the selfie photo on Instagram to enter! I also have a coupon code for you all if you want to snag your own. Use the code LILYPADCOTTAGE for 20% off your order. The code will be valid until July 4, 2019. Check out all her designs here.
