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…How do you think he did? :)
P.S. Had to let you in on the amazinggg J . C R E W sale – 25% off with code SHOPFORFALL. The perfect chance to go snag my new favorite perfect-with-riding-boots jeans! J . C R E W F A C T O R Y isn’t looking too shabby either, with prices slashed up to 50% off and this new puffer vest to rule them all.
