This New Lilly Pulitzer Print Is Fabulous

What can I say? I’m a Lilly Pulitzer fan. As an island gal, the brand’s resort lifestyle is familiar. I love the brand so much that I even put my mom on to it (see her Lilly style here). In general, I favor Lilly Pulitzer styles in solids (see past favorites here and here). When the new Lilly Pulitzer gingham print dropped, though, I knew I had to have it.

Gingham is undoubtedly an IT print of summer this year. I’ve been taking full advantage of that (see evidence here, here, and here). If you’re looking for a fresh spin on the classic print, the new hand-painted gingham print by Lilly Pulitzer has your name on it. I’m rocking the print dress (shop it here), but you must see all the styles it’s available on at the end of this post.

What I’m wearing:

Dress c/o Lilly Pulitzer | Sandals (option, option) | Sunglasses c/o Warby Parker

Naturally, I couldn’t resist a halter dress. Lilly Pulitzer pieces like this dress are go-tos for summer because they’re so versatile. You can wear the dress with sandals like I did above. You can dress it down even further with a more casual sandal, even flip-flops. And, if you need to dress it up, you can do that too.

Wondering about fit? I’m wearing a size small, but I believe I could achieve a better fit with an XS. So, I recommend sizing down in this style.

What I’m wearing:

Dress c/o Lilly Pulitzer | Shoes (option, option) | Sunglasses | Clutch (in different colors here)

This is My Kind of Winter Blues

I got a fairly warm welcome back to St. Louis following my trip home to St. Kitts. But, winter is showing up and showing out this weekend in the Lou. Cue the winter blues! Talking about blue, classic navy blue is one of the IT colors of the spring. I’m here for that because navy is such a lovely color to anchor a wardrobe.

One of my current favorite navy blue pieces is the Lilly Pulitzer Sanilla dress (see more Lilly styles here). It’s a stunning off-the-shoulder silk dress. I rocked it on vacation, and I can’t wait to wear it all summer long. If you’d like to add some classic navy to your wardrobe right now, check out the curated selection of styles at the end of this post.

Like Mother, Like Daughter: Celebrating in Lilly

Visiting my mom is my favorite reason for going home to St. Kitts. 2018 is already off to a fantastic start, then, because I got to bring in the new year with her. Of course, as style enthusiasts, we seized the opportunity to do another mother daughter style photoshoot (see the last one here). Big shout-out to Lilly Pulitzer for allowing us to celebrate this magical moment in lovely Lilly outfits.

Mom: Lilly Pulitzer Corie top | Lilly Pulitzer Chantal Pant

Me: Lilly Pulitzer Myri Romper | Earrings (now on sale)

From browsing old photo albums to talking about the future, I love spending time with my mom. She’s my number one fan, and everyone needs a dose of that kind of love and encouragement from time to time. Am I right?

I’m a huge fan of Lilly’s solid designs (see here and here). But, the Swirling Seadream print is one of my faves because of its happy colors and wavy pattern. The print is available in a variety of styles to suit many style sensibilities.

No surprise, I was drawn to the Myri romper. This short romper with its stunning off-the-shoulder silhouette had me at first sight. My mom, who also loves to show off her clavicle, opted for an off-the-shoulder top that she paired with white skinny pants (shop her pants here).
