National Wear Your Lilly Day

Goodness gracious do I love Lilly Pulitzer. The story, the prints, the agendas, the vibe of it all. I can name any print you show me and I even use my agenda in the summer. Up until a few weeks ago I owned no Lilly, except for my vintage skirt that is. It was a costume piece for a recent show I was in, and knowing my love for Lilly, wardrobe let me keep it! A week or two ago, I went to the Lilly retailer here in Lex and got my first Lilly Pulitzer dress, and it's perfect. Today I'm going to show you two outfits with these pieces in honor of National Wear Your Lilly Day.

First my vintage skirt. I have been dying to wear this for the longest time, and now that summer is here I can! The name of the print, unfortunately, I was unable to find, but the yellow and green combined with the floral screams summer. I love maxi skirts and the bright colors and lace on this one make it perfect, not to mention it has pockets. Pairing it  with a plain white chiffon button-up keep it simple on top and draws to the skirt. The vintage Lilly lace is so cute and I know I'll be bringing back this vintage favorite all summer long.

And in with the new! This dress in Ring The Bellboy is so cute and perfect for many occasions. I wore it for the first time on Father's Day and didn't want to take it off afterwards. The halter tie is so cute left hanging or tied in a pretty little bow. I paired it with my Jack Rogers and my classic white-toned pearls for a more casual, almost garden-party feel. I love the silhouette of this dress and I can't wait to wear it again.

Happy summer everyone! Lexington is heating up and I'm gonna go take a dip in the pool to cool off. Use the #NationalWearYourLillyDay and #SummerInLilly to show off your best looks today and all summer.
