Instagram = InstaCHIC

Is anyone else obsessed with the app Instagram? I make it my personal duty to upload everything on there. I take pictures of things that make me happy... clothes, food, wine, trips to Starbucks and my wonderful friends and family.

Here are some Instagram photos that share my Lilly love:

I paired my Sadie dress with a glam royal blue bib necklace from Forever 21! Who would know? Hair up makes the look a little less busy.

Something else that's on trend right now is the Arm Party. Basically it's stacking up different bracelets with your watch - the more the merrier! I've mixed in my favorite Lilly Pulitzer Ric Rac bangles with some Kate Spade, a couple bracelets I made and my Michael Kors watch. There ain't no party like an Arm Party!!!

I paired the Cassie slub dress with the gold bow belt in the store one day...perfection! I added a Loren Hope necklace (honestly, any one of her necklaces will do!) and it's just a chic everyday look. Wear flats during the day and heels for night!

What do you Instagram?

Sweet Lemon Mag, feat. The Colorful Gator

The lovely, smart and inspiration ladies at Sweet Lemon Magazine have done it again. Headed by Carly Heitlinger, Paris Rouzati and Melissa Noucas, Issue 2 of the online magazine has hit computers near you!

I was fortunate enough to write an article for this issue. It was heartfelt, researched and hit home for a lot of women, I'd like to think. I was also fortunate enough to work with Zac Thompson, a great artist and photographer.

As for the clothes my beautiful models wore...they're ALL from The Colorful Gator, of course! As an added bonus, these styles are on SALE on the website.

Here's a sneak peek of what you can expect to see on page 92:

This isn't the first time The Colorful Gator has been featured in the press, however! We have a soft spot for styling and editorial photography. Check out our Press album on the Facebook page for some truly beautiful photos and ways to style your outfits!
