A classic Lilly dress is one of my favorite items to wear in the warmer weather. Each summer I get excited for the release of new prints to add to my collection. This season, I fell in love with the Sarafina dress that is being featured in this post. The bright, floral pattern of the 'Resort White Big Garden By The Sea' print instantly caught my eye.

  3. Lilly Pulitzer is a classic Southern staple! Love it!

    I adore the dress you chose, but I think I would have to choose the Eryn dress because I'm basically obsessed with stripes!
    Thanks for hosting!

  4. The Lilly Pulitzer Striped Strapless Maybell Dress with a slight peplum at the waist would make a perfect addition to my summer wardrobe!! Stripes are my favorite print for summer just because of how classic and timeless they are and the Maybell dress is casual enough for brunch with my mom and sisters but can easily be dressed up with wedges, a necklace, a couple bracelets and a cute clutch for dinner at the yacht club!! Such a great dress for every girl to have in her closet!

Perfect for dinner out after a lazy day on the boat!

This has given me ample opportunity it scour the Lilly site dreaming of own a dress. It is very hard to pick, but I think my favorite would be the Lavin dress in Resort White Big Garden by the Sea, with the Sarafina and the Shauna Tunic dress in Navy Blue Crochet tying for close seconds.

    ReplyDelete
  157. I love the Felicity dress for its bright colors. I like that it has pockets which gives it a very casual feel for a dress that would make one look so put together. It's so had to choose though. I love the Lottie dress for it's bold colors juxtaposed on a dark neutral fabric and the Adeline dress with eyelet and ruffles could very well be a wonderful staple for any girl's closet.
