Inside my Lilly Pulitzer Jumbo Agenda

If there's one thing I could not survive high school without, it is 100% my Lilly Pulitzer agenda. I've been using Lilly agendas since my freshman year (see how I organized it sophomore year and junior year) and still absolutely love them! I've used the large agenda in years past but decided to get the Jumbo this year and love the extra space!




On the monthly pages, I keep track of tests and assignments due as well as my work schedule, meetings, special events, social events, and Pure Barre classes. I started using Le Pen pens this year after hearing so many good things about them from Dorothy, who is one of my favorite bloggers, so I assign each class or activity a different color to use on the monthly calendar!




(I blurred out my cousins's faces in the picture above for privacy reasons- that's the reason that particular picture looks a bit funky)

The major difference in how I organize my agenda from last year to this year is the color coordination on the weekly pages. In years past, I would just use a black or blue pen to write down homework assignments and then a pink pen for meetings, work, dates to remember, etc. This year, I took it a step further and used the colors I assigned to each class/activity on the weekly pages. Even though it is a bit more work to write in multiple colors instead of just one, it really is more helpful in terms of seeing what you have to do for each class. I'm not a fan of highlighting/crossing things out in my agenda as it makes it too cluttered for me so I typically do that on a to-do list instead!









Do you use a Lilly Pulitzer agenda? How do you organize yours? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I used a Lilly agenda in college and did the same thing with a specific color for each class on monthly and weekly pages. I now have a simplified planner and love it for life after school. Jess at Just Jess
