Lilly Pulitzer Pearl Shift

I hope everyone is ready for lots of Lilly outfits this summer. I mentioned it a few weeks ago, but I went a little crazy when all the new summer dresses came out. The prints seemed too perfect to pass up.

Leading up to my trip to Florida, I knew I wanted to stock my luggage with Lilly. After long days in the sun, I’m all for comfortable shifts, no makeup, and favorite sandals.

So a quick story about this particular dress…. I went to the Lilly store in search of this dress. I’m one of those people who goes into a store with an agenda. I know what I’m looking for, and I pretty much don’t see anything else. Tunnel vision mode. I also know what I like, and I get a similar tunnel vision writing off everything else during my search.

Garrett picked out this dress. It’s really annoying to me when he’s right. But the minute I put this dress on, I was sold. The neckline isn’t something I would go to on my own, but the dress fit perfectly! I loved the dainty lace so much better on than on the hanger.

My sister (and mom) and I took these photos on Banyan Street in Boca Grande. It’s a magical road. It truly feels like something out of a fairytale, especially with the sun setting over the Gulf. Banyans line the whole street– they are fascinating looking trees.

This dress is so so cute!! I love the crochet detail on the neckline! I've never considered my style preppy enough to pull of Lily, but I'd coveting this hard!

Your skin is amazing as well– have you ever done a skincare/sunscreen post? I'm a model struggling with acne, so I always noticed skin… And yours is so porcelain and incredible!!

Shift dresses are supposed to be a looser fit! If you like them tighter that's whatever, but don't advise other people to size down!

Carly I looove this dress on you! The pearl dress is one of my favorite Lilly styles and I'm so glad they keep bringing it back year after year, it's so flattering! Good job Garrett!!
