Why Dad’s Boat Means So Much

Lilly Pulitzer dress

Lilly Pulitzer UPF 50+ Hillary Dress c/oMonogrammed Jack Rogers Sandals (I also love the solid white and champagne colors.) / L.L.Bean Tote c/o (It was a gift from the brand, so don’t judge me too much with the IG handle, haha. Size Large, which fits under a plane seat, with the regular straps. But I recently ordered another one with the longer straps so it’s easier to carry.) / Tuckernuck Packable Hat

Did you see last night’s post? It went up VERY late, but it’s all about the upcoming Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale, and it includes an awesome chance to win $100 to shop the sale!

This post is a little random, and the photos that accompany it don’t do the topic justice. But lately I’ve been thinking about one of my biggest flaws as a blogger: that I tend to write about nonsense, like the weather or whether I’m tired. (Yawn.) Sometimes I’ll provide recaps of what I was doing when photos were taken, but I rarely write about what I want to write about. Like, I’ll be standing in the shower–and this happens on a fairly regular basis–thinking about how excited I am to put pen to paper… and then I never do it. My ideas and thoughts fizzle out throughout the course of the day, and I just end up doing the same old, same old when the time comes to put up the following day’s post.

When is the August 2018 Lilly Pulitzer After Party Summer Sale? +$100 Giveaway

Lilly Pulitzer Bay Dress (Similar striped Lilly dresses here and here. When is the 2018 Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale?! I’m sharing my prediction below.) / Jack Rogers Sandals (I also love the solid white and champagne colors.) / Never Version of the J.Crew Woven Tote (This one is very similar!)

Now that it’s August, I’ve started getting lots of questions about when the 2018 Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale will occur.

Hello from my couch! ☺️

I’ve been battling a persistent bug over the last week, and after desperately trying to get through it without slowing down, I finally decided to lay low for a few days. This is certainly the sickest I’ve been in my two years of motherhood, and goodness: It’s been tough. I realize, though, that I have it so much easier than true stay-at-home parents who are without backup for most of the day, even when sick. If you’re one of those people, I am amazed by you!

My parents and brother actually flew out to Chicago for Emma’s birthday party on Friday, and despite not getting in to the city until around 2:30 a.m. and missing the celebration (ugh, planes ✈️), they were SO helpful while I was under the weather. (Mitch was a rockstar per usual, too.) Of course, I’m feeling a little bummed that I wasn’t able to be a better hostess… and that I wasn’t able to “do it up” with them while they were in town. But it’s also a great reason to get another trip on the calendar, right?!

Anyway, since I’m feeling very grateful in that department right now, I thought I’d write a post about my immediate family. I recently realized that while I share a great deal about Mitch, Emma and myself, you probably don’t know very much about everyone else. And they’re pretty fabulous. ;) So today, I’m formally introducing you to the Sheehans!

Back to School

J.Crew Factory

^ Obsessed with Emma’s love for the camera remote. 😂

Kelly’s J.Crew Factory Camel “Schoolboy” Blazer (Love the sweater blazer version, too), Jeans, Button-Down Shirt (here’s another classic must-have shirt), Leopard Flats (Also love this pair as well as the slides, the heels and the boots) & Tortoise Headband / Emma’s Corduroy Skirt, Quilted Vest and Similar Striped Top / Mitch’s Fisherman Sweater, Navy Pants and Gingham Button-Down Shirt c/o J.Crew Factory

Having both been teachers, I think August will always remind Mitch and me of back-to-school shopping. ;) And while I didn’t think we’d “feel it” this year, we do. Emma is soon going to start a three- to four-hour PeeWee program, and before we know it, the leaves will be falling once again and we’ll be transitioning our wardrobes.

Hi, Friends!

I’ve been a little MIA this weekend because my family is here to celebrate Emma’s second birthday. How cute is the above photo of Emma trying to hail a cab on the way home from the American Girl store yesterday?! We’ve been having the best time. :)

Anyway, today is the last day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I’m offering four chances to win either $50 or $250 (the grand prize!) to shop. (Winners will be contacted tonight, right after I put Emma down for bed. 😉)

Guys, this is a little crazy, but I’m putting up FOUR blog posts this weekend. 😂 Very un-Kelly-like, but I somehow put together far too many in anticipation of our travels, and now I have extras that really won’t do you much good after the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends. (Prices go back up on Monday, so be sure to shop now!)

Happy 2nd Birthday, Emma!

Today is a very special day. ☺️ Our Little Emma turns two! In lieu of an “Ode to Emma” post, I thought I’d share what we’re doing to celebrate. Though I’m sure I’ll be posting something far sappier in the next week, when I’m not running around the city like a madwoman trying to pull this thing off. ;) Anyway, here are the plans:
