Lilly Pulitzer at Caneel

Oh….. posting these photos is borderline torturous. As I type this, I have the space heater on high next to me and a blanket over my lap. I totally wish I were still at Caneel Bay!
I am absolutely in love with this Lilly Pulitzer maxi dress. It is beyond comfortable and easy to wear and yet it makes you look like you put a lot more effort into the outfit. I wore this the first night we were at the resort. After an entire day of travel (flight, taxi, ferry), I was already pretty exhausted by the time dinner rolled around. This was the perfect thing to throw on for a nice dinner. 
I feel like maxi dresses in general are tricky. They can be super casual and a little on the flimsy/revealing side. I 100% love how this maxi is conservative with the long sleeves, but still shows enough shape to feel confident without being too revealing. It’s a win, win.
For coverups, I brought this dress and the tunic pictured here. Caneel is pretty casual and you can wear coverups to breakfast and lunch. I still like to feel “dressed” though. I love the beading on this tunic and how it’s lightweight but not see through. (FYI, it runs a bit small. I suggest going up a size.)

That maxi is flawless on you!! I totally know what you mean by maxi dresses sometimes being too revealing – when they are skin tight I feel super self-conscious! I can't wait to check out this dress at our store!! xo

I love the maxi dress, but I'm on the shorter end of the scale and idk if I could pull off a 1) maxi dress with 2) busy prints. Ah this post has got me aching for summer! I'd probably get the tunic myself, but I've always wanted a maxi dress! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

I'm very much a black/white/no-pattern gal, but I have one navy/white polka dot Lilly Pulitzer, and I just love it. It's a perfect little summer dress – easy to pack & easy to wear.

Both of these outfits are gorgeous! And I totally feel ya- looking that these photos makes me want to be somewhere tropical too. Glad I'm not the only one!
