love letters

I'm not usually a Lilly Pulitzer Person.  Hot pink giraffes are cute on zee kidlets, but not so much on grown women, in my humble opinion.  That said, I spied this shift on RueLaLa and thought it was pretty cute... whimsical, but still.... mature? I mean, yes, there are a few {well-placed, thank god}} gigantic pink lip prints on it, but I dig the different font prints and the typewriter.


I even discovered a little Valentine to good ol' Wake Forest...

Just discovered a WFU Shoutout on my new dress!
Navy "Love Letter" Dress - Lilly Pulitzer via RueLaLa
Blush Metallic Pumps - J.Crew
Gold Flower Earrings - J.Crew
Blush Metallic Skinny Belt - J.Crew
White Ceramic Watch - Fossil


  1. I think the outfit is stellar! You pull the print off so well with the belt and shoes. Love it! I so enjoy your blog with your beautiful yet daring color combos and gorgeous clothes. :) Thanks for sharing so us closet fashionistas feel empowered to flaunt our awesome wardrobes :)

  2. Too funny - I'm wearing that same dress from Rue La La today :)

  3. Totally agree with the LP comment! However, that dress is precious!! Love it!!

  4. I LOVE this dress...the color (one of my favorites) and the print! I could see this with a pink skinny belt, too.

  5. Of course I adore this dress, but I love lots of Lilly! I have a few of the more subtle dresses that are actually great for work. ;)

  6. Love! I got this dress too - planning to wear it for my couple's shower in August. :) Thought the 'love' theme was appropriate. I like how you substituted the sash for a belt -- I may have to try that.

  7. did they only have that dress on rue la la? ive looked everywhere!! :(

  8. @alicia - I just looked at my RLL account history - the dress is actually called the "Jolie" dress. I found it available for sale here:
