National Wear Your Lilly Day

Lilly Pulitzer Julina Sweater

It’s the first day of summer, and any Lilly Pulitzer lover knows what that really means…it’s National Wear Your Lilly Day! I don’t know about you, but I think this makes Monday a little better. Well, Lilly and lots and lots of coffee. I always say that I love Lilly because it gives me a little pep in my step that some other outfits will just never be able to do. How could you not feel good in bright, colorful clothing?

If you’ve read this blog for any extended period of time, you know how much I love Lilly. What can I say? I’m a sucker for it. This year I shared this Marlowe dress, which was featured on the Lilly website! And, I’m absolutely still in love with this navy striped dress.

To kick off the unofficial start to summer, I chose to feature the Julina sweater. I can’t say enough good things about it. I was immediately drawn to the pink and green pineapples, and I thought it would be a fun addition to my closet. It’s light enough to wear on summer nights and be comfortable. If you haven’t already, definitely snatch it up! For reference, I’m wearing a small, and I’d say it’s true to size.

So I hope today (and every day), you grab your favorite Lilly print, or anything that makes you look and feel good. Life is too short to wear anything that doesn’t. Happy National Wear Your Lilly Day!
