This Lilly Pulitzer dress encompasses almost everything I love about a dress: it's strapless, fit and flare, sparkly, embellished, striped and PINK! I have worn it to two weddings (one in October with black tights and one in June).
The beautiful bride, Julie!
Mike played timpani for Katie and Kyle's beautiful wedding on June 12!

Jacque and me! This photo makes me want a tan again.
Just one of my former students as Katie and Kyle's Ring Bear. HA!
I bought this dress during a Lilly sale a few years ago, and it has quickly become one of my favorite dresses.
Shoes: Lilly Pulitzer (I am not kidding you when I say these are incredibly comfortable! Anna and I bought them for my mom and Gary's wedding 4 years ago, and they are still in great shape). Here and here are other options!
Purse: Kate Spade.
Sunglasses: Kate Spade Shira gold.
The beauty of an embellished dress like this is it eliminates the need for a statement necklace. Stick with a dainty necklace or two and statement earrings instead.
It's just such a fun and cheery dress!
There is an exposed zipper in the back which I adore!
With mom :)
I love you, Mom!
The love of my life!
Not sure why I am pointing my toe. Haha!
Mom and Gar!
If you're ever in/near Punta Gorda, you have to check out the Tiki Bar. It has these bright Adirondack chairs, and you can watch the sunset and listen to live music! I love Adirondack chairs. They just make me so happy! The brightly colored chairs were adorable!
Peering into the harbor. Lol
Phone cases: Lilly Pulitzer.
Dancing in the sunset!
Oh, and a turtle we found in the backyard. HA!
Beach cover up dress (old Target), similar: here with cute little pom poms!
It was terrifying, but I wanted to get a closer look. Gary said it would bite off my toes.
Do you have an embellished dresses?
