Hello friends and happy (official) first day of summer! If you're a Lilly lover like myself, then you know today is more importantly known as National Wear Your Lilly Day! To start things off, here's a little look back at my NWYLD looks over the past few years. 2013, 2014, 2016 (Madeline's first NWYLD where she was big enough to wear Lilly) and 2017. I always get such a kick out of seeing blog posts from my earlier blogging days haha, but I thought it would be fun to share :)

As I mentioned in my post earlier this week, I have always had a deep love for Lilly. If you've been following me from the beginning, you know that my blog was originally "A Preppy State of Mind" which was based off one of my all time favorite Lilly prints, the "State of Mind Patch" that debuted in spring of 2012. Although I rebranded to Something Delightful in 2015 to better fit the ways in which my life had evolved (and what I was then blogging about), my love for Lilly has remained the same. Why do I love Lilly so much? Well, for me it never fails to put a smile on my face. Whether I'm looking through my older pieces or browsing the newer prints, I always feel excited. I feel like wearing Lilly brings out your personality and allows you to stand out. Lilly is most definitely a "feel good" brand with the bright colors, fun prints and unique styles. Fun fact: My Mama used to dress me in Lilly all the time when I was little, and I hated it!! Luckily, she saved most of those pieces for me, and now I look at them and can't believe that there was a day when I actually din't want to wear Lilly. 

Now for a little about our NWYLD looks for 2018. I have to say that this seersucker Lilly look is quite possibly my all time favorite Lilly look as well as my very favorite mommy and me look ever! I first fell in love with the Devina dress a little over a month ago when I wore it on Mother's Day (see the post here). There's just something about this dress that makes it absolute perfection! The ruffle sleeves are so different from the usual Lilly silhouette, and I absolutely love it. When I saw that it most recently came out in a pink seersucker, my jaw pretty much dropped. I knew right away that this dress most definitely had to be mine. I then saw that there was a pink seersucker dress for Madeline. I had yet to purchase the Girls Kinley Dress for her, and absolutely love it. Madeline kept wanting to twirl in it :) I think these two dresses make the sweetest mommy and me duo. There are certain pieces of clothing that just make you feel good inside and that is what this ruffle sleeve, pink seersucker dress does for me. P.S. I'm wearing the size 0 in my dress, and Madeline is wearing the 3T in hers for sizing reference.

If you're celebrating the first day of summer in Lilly, I'd LOVE to see your look! If you want to share, please DM them to me via Instagram. I can't wait and hope that I get to see some of y'alls Lilly looks :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Wednesday, guys! I don't know about y'all, but this week seems to be flying by. I have had such a long list of to-dos after getting back from our beach trip. Trying to tackle them one by one :) Yesterday, I had a busy day of to-dos planned, but I decided to put them all on hold as Madeline and I had the most fun day by the pool. We had a super busy morning, and just as we were about to head out the door, Madeline started begging to go to the pool. That's when I decided everything else could wait, and I'm so glad I did. We had a chick-fil-a lunch buy the pool, swam for four hours off and on, swung on her swing set, rode scooters and ended up having dinner by the pool as well.  We ended the day catching lightning bugs and letting them go. Our kiddos never fail to make life exciting and spontaneous. Overall, Madeline always reminds me to sit back, take a deep breath and simply enjoy the little moments. Because I know those are the ones I'll cherish forever. As I was putting her to bed tonight, we started to re-cap our day, as we always do before bed-time. I asked her what was her favorite part of yesterday. And she started naming every single thing we did. So we then thanked the Lord for such a fun day. Whew I got off topic haha, but I just had to share because it definitely reminded me to slow down. I woke up this morning with such a happy heart. If you're feeling overwhelmed, don't forget that's it's okay to set things aside to take a breather and enjoy what's most important. 

Since I've already talked y'alls heads off, I'll keep the outfit details of today's post short and sweet. Overall, this white eyelet wrap dress is so gorgeous and reasonable priced! Since it's petite sizing, I went up one size from my usual. I just love the details. These wedges have been an absolute go-to of mine. They're so versatile! I love that they're a platform but not too high. They're currently on sale!

I hope y'all have a great Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by.
Delightfully Yours,

Happy Tuesday, friends! I have a bright and sunny post planned for y'all today. I have always been and will always be a Lilly Girl. If you've been following me from the beginning, you know that my blog was founded on my love for Lilly. Over some time, I re-branded to better fit the scope of topics that I blog about, which is when my blog became Something Delightful. But my love for Lilly remains the same. What's even more fun is being able to twin in Lilly with my very favorite girl. If I purchase a Lilly piece, I actually like to make sure there is a mini style so that Madeline and I can twin haha. 

Today we are twinning in the print, "Multi Salt in the Air". I am wearing the Shelli Stretch Shift Dress, which is amazing. I love it for so many reasons. First off, I love that it's a more casual style dress that can be worn for everyday shenanigans. You could dress it up with a pair of wedges and throw a cardi over your shoulders for church. Or wear it with flat sandals for everyday. I also adore the little tie detail in the back. What I love most about this dress is the fact that it has (an amazing) built-in bra. That's a huge win! I'd say it runs TTS. I'm wearing the 0. I love the way that the Lisi Lerch Disk earrings in turquoise pair with this print. 

Madeline is wearing the Mini Haper Shift Dress. This is my favorite style Lilly dress for her, because it's so easy. It's comfortable enough for her to be able to play in it all day long. The print and details make it perfect for church or out to dinner. But the style is still so comfortable for her. It also washes so easily and does not need to be ironed! Lastly, this dress is great because it runs in the XS, S, M, L, XL sizing for girls. That means the XS is a 2-3, so the dresses I purchased for Madeline in this style last year fit her again this year. Next year, she will probably need the small (4-5) but I love how the sizing can work over two years, for the most part. 

Who else is excited that the official first day of summer is just a few days away?! If you're a Lilly lover, then you know that the first day of summer is also National Wear Your Lilly day! Stay tuned, because we have another fun mommy and me Lilly look coming for y'all on Thursday :)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day.

Me: Stripe Swing Dress (40% off with the code "NEWNOW") // Gucci Marmont Belt // Wicker Basket Bag (also love this one) // Lisi Lerch Coral Earrings C/O

Happy Thursday, friends! I am so excited to share this fun mommy and me look with y'all today. It just may be one of my all time favorites. I first found this lace peplum top for Madeline and absolutely fell in love with it! Y'all won't believe where it's from and the price of this darling piece. It is definitely one of my very favorite pieces of Madeline's. I immediately knew I wanted to create a mommy and me look around it. I then came across this stripe swing dress for myself and absolutely love the colors! It just screams summer. It's currently 40% off with the code "NEWNOW", making it only $54. I'm wearing the XS petite, for reference. But the coral stripe in this dress coordinates perfectly with Madeline's little top. 

I also have to mention my earrings, because y'all know how I love my Lisi Lerch clip-on earrings. The "conch" color coordinates perfectly with so many pieces, especially Madeline's peplum lace top for this mommy and me look. I have said before that my ears are so sensitive! I do have pierced ears but have always had such a hard time with them. I adore my statement earrings, but if I wear earrings with posts, my ears become swollen and so sore that I usually can't wear earrings for days after. That's why I love my Lisi Lerch earrings since they come in clip-ons. They're pretty much all I wear now. It's so nice to find adorable, quality clip-on earrings. If you follow me on Instagram, be sure to stay tuned tonight as I have a fun giveaway coming y'alls way :)

Lastly, y'all know that LOFT is one of my very favorite stores to shop at. They're currently doing 40% off everything with the code "NEWNOW". I have some LOFT cash on top of that, so I am going to order a few new piece I've been eyeing. See them + a few other favorites below.

Striped Eyelet Peplum Top - Already have and LOVE this one (on sale for $35)

Raffia Pom Pom Slide Sandals - How ADORABLE are these?! (on sale for $35)

Striped Pom Pom Top - Love these details (on sale for $23)

Happy Monday, friends! I hope y'all had a great weekend and are getting Monday off to a great start. Today I'm so excited to share a styling of a piece that is quickly becoming a go-to of mine: this ivory and white stripe ruffle wrap skirt! And y'all, today it's on sale for $26! It's becoming such a go-to because of the neutral color palette. I love how it looks paired with this ruffle trim cami (only $16) for a pop of color. It also looks so cute paired with this button-front white cami and the ivory option as well. I have both colors in the button-front cami and love them! I recently purchased this tassel sleeve t-shirt, and it looks darling paired with the skirt as well. So many cute styling options. This skirt couldn't be any more perfect for all your summer festivities. It's absolute perfection! It also comes in blue

I also have to tell y'all that I noticed the Petite Alice Bag by Clare V. is back in stock in cream! I'm sure it won't last for long, so if you've been eyeing it, grab it while you can! It's the perfect small bag, and it surprisingly golds a lot! I can easily carry my wallet, my phone, a pair of sunglasses, my keys, a small pack of Wet Ones (yes, I'm a germaphobe), and a lipgloss. 

I also want to mention a new highlighter I've been loving. This liquid highlighter by YSL is amazing! I bought it right before our trip and am hooked. It gives the prettiest, brightest glow, and does so much more than my powdered highlighters. This will definitely become a new go-to product in my makeup routine. I'm wearing it in the shade "01-Daylight".

And lastly, since my skirt is super on sale, I decided to share a few of my other favorite pieces that I've been eyeing while they're on sale. Which is your favorite?
