One of the things that I remember least fondly about living up north is the extreme, bitter cold weather. I was a banker for many years, and still remember like it was yesterday going outside at 5:30 to scrape off my car and shivering all the way to work! I do not miss this a single bit! In fact, I love that here in Florida I can still take my son out to parks during Christmas season without having to worry about bundling or frostbite! Today I am styling my Lilly Pulitzer Maia leggings and I also bust out one of my sweaters as there is only a short window to wear “warm clothes” here!
This outfit has nothing to do with Christmas. However, it marks a huge milestone for me: It is the first time that I have been able to fit into my girls size XL Lilly Pulitzer Maia leggings that I have been hoarding for what seems like forever! The Maia leggings are significantly less expensive than the adult version and easier to find, so if you can fit into them, they are definitely worth it! You can check out this post to see another example of styling my Lilly Pulitzer Maia Leggings. Finally being able to fit into them is that little validation that all of my hard work over the past 6 months has been worth it and that I am slowly getting there! And when is there a time that is not a good Lilly Pulitzer time??? (The answer is never!)
This weekend we visited Largo Central Park. There were Christmas decorations galore, a train track and trail throughout the park and copious amounts of playground equipment. It’s definitely a fun time if you have a little one and I highly recommend it! (It also has copious amounts of Pokestops if you enjoy Pokémon Go!)
