Entering week 6 of quarantine and I'm starting to give in to the online shopping. I'm so fortunate to still be working, but I know that is not the case for many. If I did not leave my last job, I would be included in that number of those out of work right now. So I am in no way trying to be insensitive to that with this post. But if you are passing some of this time shopping, I thought I would share some great deals on some of my favorite pieces I've styled on the blog before. I'm still trying to support local over large retailers, but I just had to share some of these great markdowns!

Jeans ($23.99 from $75, and many other great styles that usually start at $128)

Seersucker top ($26.99 from $68) | Seersucker bottoms ($11.39 from $44)

Dress ($48.98 from $178)

Lilly Pulitzer 30% off Sale Picks

Ruffle trim dress | Pink lace dress | Printed jumpsuit | T-shirt dress | White lace romper | Seersucker dress | Eyelet dress | Wide-leg jumpsuit | Collared dress | Leggings | Sports bra | Bikini top | Bikini bottoms | One-piece swimsuit | Green dress

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great Easter, despite how different it must have felt this year. But if you haven't already heard, Lilly Pulitzer is having a 30% off site-wide sale that ends tonight! I have been shopping this brand for about 9 years now, and this is the first time I have ever seen a sale like this. Which is part of what makes the bi-annual After Party Sales such a big deal. There has always been a small sale section in the stores, and they recently offered 30% off select styles online. But a site-wide sale? This is a first. So here are some of my top picks, for if life returns to normal anytime soon. But if more time in quarantine is required, their leggings are also fantastic. I might have 4 pairs of them and have been living in them lately more than ever. And if you're reading this post in the morning, there's still time to enter to win a $150 gift card to shop this sale on this Instagram post!

Land of the Pine COVID-19 Fundraiser

Flamingo hat

My boyfriend TJ and I are so excited to re-launch Land of the Pine (the business we launched together last year) as a COVID-19 fundraiser! In effort of helping those affected by the virus, we will be donating 100% of the proceeds from our sales to Feeding America.
I've linked the products we have already launched below, but we plan to post more as we go. We still have 2 of the hats TJ painted last year, I created some new straw hats, and TJ is now embroidering baseball caps. If none of that appeals to you, we also have a donation only listing available on the site. But please stay tuned to our socials and the site as we add more products!

10 of My Unpopular Opinions

How's everyone holding up? About 4 weeks in and I'm so fortunate to be keeping busy with work, but have been very uninspired to post. I've seen this unpopular opinions post going around on Facebook, my friend's group chat discussed it last week, and What Nicole Wore made a whole post about her unpopular opinions...so I thought it would be fun to do the same! Here are 10 seemingly popular things that I do not agree with, from food to fashion choices.

1. In TV and movies: I'm not a fan of most reality TV (cannot watch The Bachelor franchise but did like Love is Blind), horror movies, superhero and the big fantasy franchises like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, etc. I know those are very different categories to put together, but I just don't see the appeal to any of them.

2. When it comes to food, I don't like: onions, peppers, bananas, coconut, and nuts when they are added to desserts. Maybe I'm just still a picky eater at 26, but adding any of those ingredients ruins any food in my opinion.

3. As far as drinks are concerned: coffee never needs any additives (this was an acquired taste, but now I can never go back), I love just plain water, and I would always prefer vodka or gin over tequila.

4. I'm not a big fan of theme parks. I get motion sickness, so the idea of waiting in long lines in the heat to possibly puke at the end just isn't my idea of a good time. I enjoyed the whole environment of them when I was younger, but I still didn't go on any big roller coasters. I now just see them as a far from ideal way to spend a lot of money.

5. I only like to read books in airports and near a beach or pool. I read a lot growing up, but fell out of it when was I was in high school/college from the reading I had to do for classes. I really would like to read more...but I would just rather do so many other things unless I am waiting on a flight or hanging out by the water.

6. As much as I love fitness classes, I just can't get in to cycling classes or running. I just never developed the cardio for either one. I sort of blame ballet because it is structured to either be a marathon of slow movements or quick bursts of really fasts ones. 

7. I prefer listening to podcasts rather than music while driving. I couldn't tell you the last time I put a playlist together, I opened Spotify for the first time in quite awhile when I started working from home a few weeks ago.

8. This is very blogger specific, but I just can't talk to my phone on Instagram stories. I don't feel like I have anything important enough to say, and I rarely ever have sound on my phone. So I don't watch a lot of other creator's talking stories either, with the exception of friends and some of my favorite accounts.

9. Also very anti-blogger of me, I could think of so many better ways to spend the money it would cost to buy a bag or pair of shoes from a high-end designer. You could take a trip, buy a nice camera, get tickets to quite a few concerts or performances. Even if you buy pre-owned of a top name designer, I could still take the same amount of money and buy 2-4 bags or pairs of shoes from a mid-range designer that still makes great quality products.

10. I paint my own nails (except for a few times a year), don't dye my hair, and have never had any interest in getting things like eyelash extensions, Botox, fillers, etc. done.  Just personal preference, which I have to say I'm pretty happy about while quarantined!

I have not been looking quite like this for my at-home workouts lately, but I have been living in these leggings since I found them back in the fall. They can be such a fun statement, as they look blue in some lights, and pink in others! But now that our stay at home order has been extending for the entirety of April, I have been keeping busy (and so grateful to be) working from home, and trying out some of the many online workout options.  So I thought I would share a full list if you're still looking for ideas all from streaming sites, phone/tablet apps, and Instagram both from posts and live streams. I'm so thankful that so many of these trainers are using their time and talents to provide free content while they are unable to teach classes!
