I revealed in a blog post last week that I've been feeling a little down lately. On top of that, my boss was hospitalized Saturday and is currently on a ventilator. I was feeling really unmotivated to blog and my focus was on worrying, so I started thinking about things that make me happy. That's why I'm doing today's post on Lilly Pulitzer's new arrivals.
I received my first Lilly dress the day that I was declared cancer free by the doctors at Vanderbilt. It was hot pink, and to me, the bright colors represented a new lease on life. Today, I'm wearing my hot pink Lilly cardigan because the bright color puts a little smile on my face. Here are some Lilly goodies that I would love to put in my closet this season:
Marlowe Boatneck T-Shirt Dress • I already own three Marlowe dresses, so this is at the top of my wish list! Marlowe dresses are comfy and unfussy; I wear mine to work and out on the boat.
Hillary Draped Neck Pullover • A few years ago, I bought a few shirts very similar to this from Eddie Bauer, and every day when I get home, I change into one of them. I love the pink color of this one.
Boca Chica Crop Top & Skirt Set • I love this crop top set a million times more than I love Lilly's crop top set from last year. I love that the bare stomach is offset by long sleeves. It makes me feel like I might actually be able to pull it off!
Cove Sleeveless Fit & Flare Dress • The woven color look of this dress really pulls me in! I feel like it's a great little dress that could be dressed up with metallic sandals and funky jewelry or dressed down with a ponytail and sneakers.
Lola Pull-On Ankle Length Pant • I live in pixie pants - the brighter, the better! For the time being, I would pair these with my navy knit turtleneck, but in spring I would pair them with my cute little lace tank and a cardi.
Celia Fit & Flare Dress • My first thought when I saw this dress was that I could throw a blazer over it for work. I love dresses that can be worn for work and play, especially because I go to so many events after work.
Windward Dress • I'm obsessed with the cinched waist and work appropriate length of this one!
Luxletic Hooded Poncho • I'm a big fan of athleisure. I would feel so fabulous throwing this on after yoga or ballet class when I'm burning up, but it's still cold outside, or wearing it to stretch as I warm up.
Luxletic Weekender Cropped Pant • I live in cropped yoga pants. Might as well make them Lilly! This bright print makes me smile, and they might even motivate me to go to yoga. That's what I'm going to tell myself ;)
See anything you're adding to your wish list? What is your go to "pick me up?"
