What i Heart Now: Lilly Pulitzer


Because of yesterday’s post, I naturally went onto Lilly Pulitzer’s website to see if there was anything I would wear. I admire Lilly’s life but would I wear her dresses? Ummmm…. surprisingly, I considered it. I wouldn’t wear all Lilly because that would be well… too Lilly but I could pair a few of her pieces with my current wardrobe and not look like I am going to a PTA meeting. Those scalloped shorts paired with an oversized, boxy top – cute. And that striped dress worn with a leather jacket and a pair of motorcycle boots – super cute.

I have a couple of my mom’s old Lilly dresses. To refashion or not to refashion? That’s the question that’s going through my mind.

What about you? Is Lilly too Lilly for you?

    I had never heard of Lilly before now, but I think quite a bit of her stuff is quite cute. I’m not crazy for tons of pink, but I have to say that short suit would be great for teaching in a hot school with no air conditioning (the norm).

    I made a dress last summer that a friend commented that it looked like something from Lilly Pulitzer. I hadn’t heard of her before then but I looked her up and saw some of her stuff and noticed the common denominators of bold prints and bright colors. So I guess I would wear some of her things, since I made something specifically to my own taste that is similar!

      This is exactly the response I was looking for. I spent a big chunk of my time last week putting that post together, from researching about Lilly to creating the graphic. I’ve gotten away from creating cool graphics for my posts – I went for a cleaner look – but I am going back to it. That’s what I used to do and that’s what I think my readers liked about my blog. My posts were different… unique.

    Cute selection. And I like your idea of how to style them 🙂

    And now I love it too. Especially those scalloped shorts and the matching floral shorts and blazer. It’s not something I think I could pull off, but I ADORE the look!

    I do love Lilly, but because I live in NYC, I tend to only buy her more muted attire such as her adorable all white or blue dresses.

    I loved your post on Lilly Pulitzer. I had a vintage dress with that label but never knew about the brand. Wow, it really does have a prim aesthetic! Didn’t you make a brocade jacket and shorts set/pattern? That was a cool urban take on this kind of style.

    Alright, so I know I already posted on here but I feel the need to share: I mentioned below that I have never heard of Lilly until this post–100% true. So in honour of Me-Made-May (I’m not participating, I only have four me-mades, but I thought I should at least wear one today), I wore my Princess Peach skirt that I haven’t worn since like November or something like that. I walk into my classroom and the other teacher says, “I love your skirt, is it a Lilly?” !!! So weird! Just thought you should know. The world has been full of little coincidences lately.
