Our first stop, of course, was to Pink Magnolia, the Lilly store in St. Louis! You can't have a Lilly Ladies get together without a little shopping! I ended up with a few goodies that went home with me- a pair of Callahan shorts for my daughter, and a new pair of beach pants in Nice Ink- I have been waiting for those to come out for a while!
All my Lilly Ladies! Decked out in our Lilly best- The Essie, Marlowe, Ali, and an oldie but a goodie- the Deanna Romper! (you can find similar here) And of course, what goes better with Lilly than Jack Rogers sandals and Tory Burch?
I also wanted to add- you can follow my friend, Jen, on her blogging journey And Hattie Makes Three!
Next stop, lunch! We opted to eat at Canyon Cafe, and you can't have a lunch with your gals without some drinks! My margarita was amazing! The tacos were pretty fantastic, too.
None of us had ever had a blowout before, so we went to a local blow dry bar, Breeze, to get our hair down. It was definitely an enjoyable experience- something I plan to do again for sure!
The finished product! Big hair, don't care. ;)
I am so grateful to have had the chance to spend the day being pampered and having fun with my friends! If you also have young children at home, you understand, it's so important to get that "mama time". My husband was a trooper and took both kids for the day so that I could go out and play. He's a keeper for sure! I can't wait to do another meet up with these fabulous Lilly Ladies!
