Special Occasion? Have We Got the Dress for You!

Spring is on its way, which means wedding season, Easter, and Mother’s Day are fast approaching! Many of us are looking for something beautiful and fresh to add to our wardrobe as the weather begins to warm.

I personally have been looking for a lace dress to add to our boutique collection for quite some time. When I came across Victoria, I knew this dress was perfect!

It is one of those dresses that you could wear on Easter Sunday, to a tea, a bridal shower, or even to a wedding, making it an ideal piece to add to your wardrobe this season.

We love the simple beauty of this dress, as it reminds of of times gown by and has a hint of southern charm.

The knee length, scoop neck, and wrist length sleeves on Victoria give this dress a romantic touch. The loose fit allows the dress to slightly sway when touched with a gentle spring breeze.

Currently available in Teal in both S/M and M/L. Find Victoria here!

Winter is officially here, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear your favorite dress anymore! This post is all about dressing up our best selling dress, Mia, for winter. Chosen by our customers for its comfort and flattering style, Mia is loved by all who purchase it! We currently offer Mia in Charcoal, Eggplant, and Lilac. So settle in with a cup of coffee or tea and browse our winter looks.

Look 1: Blissful Burgundy

For this look we paired our Mia Dress in Charcoal with burgundy leggings, a burgundy cardigan, brown boots, and our Lainey Blanket Scarf in Burgundy. I love how incredibly comfortable this outfit it!

Look 2: Cozy in Cream

I totally love this look, because it is centered around a vintage cream sweater that had once belongs to my Grandma Gron. I paired our Mia Dress in Charcoal with sweater tights, black wedges, and a cream knit hat. For a little added style, I wore my Cora Necklace from Lydia & Lilac as well.

Look 3: Pops of Color

I love pairing mustard with rich colors together and I love how much fun this outfit is! I paired my favorite mustard cardigan with our Mia in Eggplant and our Francesca Floppy Wool Hat in Teal. I added a pair of leggings and some brown boots for some added warmth and finished the look off with our Vera Statement Necklace.

Look 4: Grey Pea Coat

This look is great for a night out! I paired our Mia in Eggplant with my favorite grey pea coat and black thigh high boots. To provide an extra layer of warmth I added our cozy Lainey Blanket Scarf in Teal.

The Reasons Why I’m Shopping Small this Christmas and Why You Should Too!

I love shopping for others during the holidays. Giving gifts is a way to show someone else that you care for them. And yes, I will be dressing in my Christmas attire, heading out during the wee hours of the morning on Black Friday, and checking off a few of my boxes on my Christmas list. After all, shopping Black Friday has become a tradition for the girls in my family. However, this year I will be shopping small as much as I can! Why, you ask? Read on to find out my friend!

I get to support someone’s dream. You see, each small business represents someone dream. There is always a person, a family, a story behind each one. Our family loves these stories! We love that each time we make a purchase from the small shops we have grown to love, we are supporting someone’s dream and helping it become a reality! What a fantastic feeling!

You find unique items you can’t find anywhere else. Of course there will Buzz-Saw Louie at every store and everyone you know will be getting one (yes that is a Veggie Tales reference! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you can click here.), but what about giving something different for a change? My sister is the best gift giver ever! She always finds something thoughtful and unique. I have learned so much from her over the years and have really been trying to put more thought into what I give. You know, not just giving to give. Shopping small gives me options for gift giving that I simply can’t get in department stores.

I can finally find something for the difficult ones. Let’s face it, some people are just hard to shop for. Because small businesses have unique products, I’m able to find something for those who want things in even the most unique niche.

Many small businesses are now located online. Honestly, a lot of the small businesses I will be buying from this year are online. This is great for me, because I cannot stand the traffic this time of year! Shopping online means I don’t have to worry about traffic at all. In fact I’m able to do most of my shopping after my boys are tucked snuggly in their beds and from the comfort of my couch. Score!

There are so many reasons to shop small this holiday season and we only scratched the surface. If your looking for gifts for her this year, check out lydiaandlilac.com today! What are some of your reasons for shopping small this year?
