How to Make Print in America

How excited I was to score this dress on deep discount from the Pink Pelican in Huntsville? Very. With the code 35closing, you can score an additional 35% off already marked down priced at this Lilly signature boutique. I was lucky enough to get in early enough to grab this dress, this dress, and these wedges. Sizes are limited these days, so act fast. Or diet down to a size extra small because that is all that there seems to be left.

The particular dress featured in this post caught my eye because although the colors are bright and the print is a eye-catcher, it isn’t outwardly Lilly Pulitzer. It truly is the perfect dress when you want to wear something vivid but at the same time, doesn’t scream, “I am a basic white woman.”

Several years ago, 2012 to be exact, J.Crew dominated the ikat print and put it all over that summer season from shorts to espadrilles. I distinctly remember being envious of a friend, Christine, who found that most amazing ikat print swimsuit from that line. The print is pretty phenomenal no matter which brand produces it, so this dress is my way of catching up with that 2012 FOMO.



Can we talk about the handbag real quickly? I have been into Foley + Corinna since 2007 when I saw Blair Waldorf carry the brand all over the upper east side while terrorizing frenemies left and right (RIP Jenny Humphrey’s social life) and I was immediately on board. What I did not know was that Foley + Corinna hits it out of the park with all of their bag designs, not just that iconic City Tote. Whether be the Lady Tote that I carried all winter and into the spring or the Limelight City Passport that I carried last week, sign me up for Foley + Corinna any day.
