The excitement

As far as I'm concerned, there is no better time, then a time when I can wear the first little white dress of the season. Mixing one up with a black leather jacket has been on my 'to-wear' list for a long time, and to really de-emphasise the girlyness of a white dress I threw on the studded pumps and studded bag.

Although, if we are being honest, a tiny bag more for looks than function and a pointy toe pump could not be any more girly.

Yesterday the Lilly Pulitzer for Target line launched, I got up bright and early and was in the store by ten after eight. All of the clothes were wiped out. I know that most of them are going to end up on eBay with prices twice the list. This makes me furious. I know Target will restock, and it's highly likely I will get that adorable flamingo print dress, and hopefully even the beach chairs, but still, I got up early on a Sunday and I feel like those greedy people deprived me of my precious sleep.

At least I didn't leave completely empty handed - there was one pineapple serving bowl left.

  1. Absolutely love this look!! So happy it's warmer weather for you! And I heard about the madness over the Lily collection at Target, crazy! I would be upset I missed out on sleep also!!

  2. That dress is so cute and I love the pumps!

  3. I can't believe how crazy the launches of Target collaborations get... and that anyone would willingly buy any of the pieces on eBay for more than the sticker price. Fingers crossed you'll be able to pick up your dream pieces when the restock comes in. But in the meantime, I can just picture you hosting a dinner party in this white dress and using your pineapple serving bowl. I definitely need to add a good white shirt dress to my wardrobe, and this one is wonderful.

  4. You look gorgeous! I did not go to Target until around noon and I'm not sure what I thought I was going to find at that time but I didn't feel so bad since I didn't get up early to go. Will they restock? I didn't know that.

  5. stunning outfit dear, you look so nice

  6. The beach chairs would definitely be on my list if I was going to Target. Lucky you to bring out your LWD already. Very lovely dress for spring/summer. <3

  7. Yay for the first white dress of the season !
    Thumbs down for all those greedy people who went out and bought all of they Pulitzer collection to resale them on ebay.

  8. Isn't that just the worst? Well, at least you got a bowl!

  9. Sounds like so many people had the same experience as you did yesterday. It's such a bummer! Loving your white dress and leather jacket together :)


  10. Love the femininity of this dress paired with the studded pumps and leather jacket...such a great and chic contrast!

  11. I don't think Target is going to restock which stinks. I went to our local store on Sunday morning (not at opening) and they only had a measly little section with 5 items. I highly doubt there was anyone in line at my store waiting for it to open. I just don't think my town is the demographic. Oh well. I really liked a lot of the pieces. And great girly and edgy white and black look!

  12. Love this black and white look and biker is one of mi favs!

  13. Seriously so bummed about the LP for Target stocking situation. I never go out early for those collabs, but that is why. It made me sick to see my Instagram flooded with all of the LP stuff that people bought purely to sell for escalated prices. If you don't want it, leave it for someone who does! Love this dress though and the pumps!

  14. Target isn't going to restock which is a bummer because it totally feeds into the Lilly mafia mentality!

  15. I really love that dress, it is the perfect LWD. So happy you are finally getting some warm weather.


  16. My store didn't even have a decent selection, just a few clothing items. Hopefully they restock because I would like a dress and maybe one for my daughter but I wasn't going to head over super early. Love that dress and how you added edge to it!

  17. It is SO exciting to break out the white again! Love the white dress + leather jacket combo!


  18. Beautiful Lydia in white!! I love the use of the sunflowers too, they are such a happy flower. I did not give into the hype and slept in :)


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  19. Lovely dress!!

  20. I love that dress on you, sweetie. Happy morning. xo

  21. Hooray for white dress season! I love this one and how you styled it with tougher elements. Your rings are so pretty.

  22. Loving the white dress paired with the leather jacket, and cute sandals. I didn't even make an attempt to go to Target. You are right, they will restock it, or maybe it will be on sale in a couple of months. I don't get crazy about it anymore.

  23. That is the perfect white dress--I love it! The studded pumps balance it out perfectly too. Sorry to hear that you didn't have any luck at seems like no one did!! Glad I didn't try to go...just would have been disappointed I fear.

  24. You always look so gorgeous in white dresses! And it just goes and makes me yearn for the perfect LWD again. ;-)

  25. I'm glad you got the pineapple serving bowl! Love the white dress with the edgy touches like the leather jacket and the studs on your shoes and purse!
