My guilty pleasure? Lilly Pulitzer. I’ve loved the fanciful designs, bright colors and classic cuts ever since I was a little one. But y’all… as much as I want it to be, it’s just not really a thing here in Texas. Don’t hear me wrong! You still see plenty of shifts at Sunday services, and the planners are definitely a commonality here, but I’m talking head to toe, top to bottom, all the way Lilly. So when I visited the Lilly Pulitzer store in Charlotte this summer, that’s exactly what I wanted to experience – head to toe Lilly! And I found exactly what I was looking for.

 Let’s break it down. While both the top and bottom are both Lilly, they work in all sorts of ways. I can pair this Elsa top (that I’m loving in this fall print as well) with everything. Jeans and boots, white shorts and sandals, talk about versatile! I especially love how it brings out the pattern in this timeless skirt. A short, tailored skirt paired with a flowy shirt is a perfect, flirty ensemble for breaking in early fall! The verdict? I’m in love with it all, and Texas has been depriving me.

A special thank you to the girls at Lilly Pulitzer Southpark for such a wonderful afternoon at their store! They were all darling, and helped me throw this number together along with a dozen others. (Be sure to check back later this week for another Lilly look!) I could have honestly played there all afternoon if Jeff had let me. He was such a good sport, though, and even let me teach him to pose…lilly pulitzer, preppy blog, southern blog, southern sorority girl, summer in lilly, lilly pulitzer model, lilly pulitzer intern, game day outfit, southern gameday outfitHow do you think he did? :)

Best,

Kate

    I’m with you on the Lilly love! If you think Texas doesn’t do Lilly you should see Washington! People look at me as if I have lost my mind when I parade around in the tiniest bit of it! I like to think I bring some color to the sea of grey raincoats :)
