All monthly layouts are the same, each page beginning with Monday and ending with Sunday!  I personally prefer my planners this way, so it’s perfect for me!


Buy your Lilly Pulitzer 2016-2017 Planner here!

Hi everyone, it’s finally Friday!!  Did anyone else feel like this week went by pretty quickly?  I am definitely ready for the weekend, and for some relaxation!

Yesterday I was completely thrilled to find a package from Lilly Pulitzer at my doorstep, because my 2016-2017 Lilly Planner finally arrived!  I knew I needed to write a post about this planner asap, because I was dying to show it to all of you!  This post is the second part of my three-part mini series “Find Your Perfect Planner”, check out the first part about my Erin Condren LifePlanner here!  Upon opening the package, I was immediately in love with this year’s design!  The addition of the gold detailing in the elastic strap and coiling is beautiful, and the gold foiling on the front is perfection!  I purchased the Large size in the color Exotic Garden, and it is an 17 month planner so it runs from August of 2016 to December of 2017!  Each planner I purchased this year is an 17 or 18 month planner, because that is my personal preference!

 Lilly is always known for coming out with fun and colorful designs, whether it be fashion, accessories, decor, or planners!  This year’s planner definitely did not disappoint, because the pages are filled with beautiful artwork, the classic Resort 360 map and mini story, and of course the stickers!  I personally enjoyed last years stickers more than this years, however I do really like how they designed phrase stickers this year like “looooong weekend” and “weekend getaway”!  This year they also included six pages of artwork after the 2017 and 2018 yearly calendars, which displays six tropical, fun pictures designed by the artist(s)!  This planner also features the classic “days to celebrate” page, 12 “travel” pages, four “numbers and addresses” pages, and ten “notes” pages per usual!

So let’s talk about the monthly layout!  At the beginning of each month, there is a full section of artwork which corresponds with that month’s color scheme!  There is also a full month calendar with a “to do” list on the side!  The weekly spread runs from Monday to Sunday, and each day has eight lines for you to write whatever you need!  Last year I used this planner as my academic planner, but I’m actually going to switch things up and use it for my sorority events/meetings, blogging, and perhaps a few other things!  I’ll definitely keep you updated with what I decide!  *Next week I’ll talk more about my academic planner, and go into detail why I think that one is best for academic purposes!

I am such a huge fan of Lilly Pulitzer, and I definitely think they make incredible planners!  I personally love this planner because I am always very happy looking through it, and it makes me think about vacation and tropical places!  I also love how each month starts with a monthly quote (as do both of the other planners I own), because it’s nice to think about throughout the month!  I do prefer the vertical layout in my Erin Condren planner as opposed to the horizontal layout in this planner, however I do like the separate lines to write different tasks!  All in all, this planner is amazing and I cannot wait to start using it!

I hope you enjoyed part two of my Find Your Perfect Planner series, I’ve had so much fun writing these posts!  I believe planning and organization is a huge part of being successful and stress-free, so I am definitely a huge advocate!  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, and you treat yo’self to something lovely!

xo, Tessa
