I’m about to write some words that I never thought would come come from these fingers…..I’m totally digging Lilly Pulitzer lately. It started last year and is full blown this year. Now, I am not totally unaware. I know a whole segment of you just thought, “What’s wrong with her? She hasn’t liked Lilly?” – with a gasp no less. There is a whole other segment thinking, “Dang it. We lost another one.”
I had an aunt who wore lots of Lilly and other bright and busy prints. I think we all have that same aunt. I, on the other hand, tend to gravitate toward the neutrals and the solids with few prints thrown in. Call me boring. I know, I know. Some of you just think I’m nuts because Lilly is just so darn cute. And really, what little girl doesn’t look her best in a Lilly sheath? I agree, adorable.
So, if you, too, have had weird psychological hang-ups with Lilly, I ask you to gaze upon these fashions while keeping an open mind. I think I’m a convert. Lily, you may not have had me hello, but you have me mid-conversation. If you are so inclined to want to buy some, Monkee’s, in Hill Center, has the cutest collection of Lilly Couture I’ve seen.
Each of these dresses are beautiful and make an easy yet perfect summer outfit. The gold and turquoise earrings are stunning.
And, for the lady who just can’t have enough Lilly in her life: Lilly now has a bike! (Is this because the Liberty bike sold out so quickly at Target?)
With all the Lilly love I’m showing, I do take one exception. The newest line has an item I just can’t seem to come to terms with: metallic Lilly print fabric made into cargo pants. Is it just me?
