Lilly

Its funny, I didn't really appreciate my love for preppy until after my days as a sorority girl. I purchased my first Lilly Pulitzer dress years ago when Ruelala was a fun new website that had the ability to drain your 'secret' bank account.


After that, I was in love. From totes, notecards, to picture frames, iPad covers, to coffee mugs and beer koozies. Things were just more enjoyable when dipped in a Lilly pattern. Its bright, fun, youthful and cheery. It just makes me happy whenever I see it.

One of my favorite gifts for when Lil C was a lil baby
was a Lilly summer ensemble
Everything from the packaging to the little tags on the items inviting you in and telling you about how it all started with young girl and a juice stand, you feel like part of a secret club. And yes, I do feel an extra ounce of sass and confidence when rocking LP!
Sipping a tasty cocktail in Charleston, SC in my first Lilly dress.
Meeting Mayor Menino in Lilly. Holy short hair, Julie!


So a pink champagne toast with your pinkies out to Lilly Pulitzer..  thank you for making the world a brighter place.

That baby girl is just a cutie-pie wearing that cute little Lilly pattern dress.

I've never owned a Lilly, but your whole family rocks the hell out of her!
