Lilly Pulitzer At Any Age

I am a huge Lilly Pulitzer lover. I know I blog time and time again about Lilly, but I can't help myself! I love vibrant colors for dresses and tops; Lilly Pulitzer exemplifies bright, sunny days. I actually purchased two pieces (an Elsa top and a dress) that were both on sale in store at the Coconut Point Mall in Florida. I have to dedicate this post to my mom, though. She actually purchased both of these pieces first! Haha! I totally copied her style. At almost 67, she still rocks out to Lilly P.! See below how women of any age can wear Lilly Pulitzer!

Shirt: here.  Ours were both on sale for $100.
White skirt on mom: Talbots (on sale).
White skirts from Loft that I'm totally obsessed with: here, here and here. Buying ASAP! Just got some coups.

Shirt dress: similar here
In store, our dresses were on sale. 

Similar style: here.
It's just such an easy dress. It's a throw-on-and-go dress that doesn't require much (if any!) extra effort.
Pair with sandals, and you're ready for the day or night!

Mom's first Lilly Pulitzer experience! 
Similar option: here.

"Peel and eat shrimp" on the walls. The punchy patterns are so gorgeous!
Every pattern has a cute/catchy name.

I laughed so hard when I put on this outfit (above, right). I had a flamingo Lilly bag, mug and shirt. A student stopped me in the hall and said, "does your bag really match your shirt?"  I replied, "You should see my mug!" We laughed pretty hard at my ridiculousness and love of flamingos.
Shoes: Tory Burch (old) similar here
Bag: Lilly Pulitzer (old) similar here. This bag is my spring work bag. There is plenty of room for a laptop, water bottle, folders, notebooks, a planner, pens/pencils and my lunch in this bag.
Mug: also old Lilly, but similar here

I then wore this Elsa top out to dinner downtown for Jackie and Julie's birthday dinner. 

I paired the Elsa top with black leggings. My shirt is a size small for reference. It was so comfortable! 
Sandals: Jack Rogers

Black leggings: similar here. I bought mine from a little boutique in downtown Geneva called Lela. It's adorable! But my leggings are old; Lela is constantly changing their stock!

Lip color: Stila

Orange bracelet: old J. Crew, similar here.  

Before going out to dinner for Jackie and Julie's birthdays in the city! 

I wore my Lilly shirt dress for a 3.5 hour drive to Appleton, Wisconsin to see this beautiful mama-to-be. It was so comfortable for the drive! It also didn't wrinkle in all that time in the car. It was a perfect travel dress.
My pink bracelet: here
Caitlin's dress: (maternity) Old Navy on sale!
Just measuring Cait's belly! haha! I didn't win with my guess, sadly. 

Besties since sake bombing in South Bend. 
So excited to meet baby H! 

Little Mel! Love her! She and her sister Brittany threw a fabulous baby shower for Caitlin.
I MUST invest in a pair of Lilly P. croakies like Melanie had! 
My monogram necklace: Moon and Lola in mirrored gold. 
Mel's ruffle blouse: Loft, similar here and here. I also love this option!

Can't wait to spoil little baby H! Loved seeing Caitlin and her family. It was so great to reunite! 

How do you wear vibrant patterns?
