For the Love of Lilly | Summer 2020 Collection

June 15, 2020

As most of you know I was a Lilly Pulitzer BFF last year. That was honestly one of my favorite brand partnerships to date. I really got a chance to get a closer look at the brand and learn that it’s not just all about bold prints + bright fabrics. The brand is all about building women up and reminding them that it is okay to do something out of the ordinary. I look at that as an ode to Lilly herself, considering she did something SO out of the ordinary to get started. I was so elated when the team reached out to ask if I can help showcase the Lilly State of Mind capsule in their Summer 2020 collection.

I am definitely more of a solid Lilly girl vs patterns but the new print for summer took me by S U R P R I S E. I immediately thought of travel when I saw this print!


The print highlights all 50 states and there is an individual illustration for each. Considering we can’t really travel right now, I decided to take a trip to my porch and show you how I styled their new print 🙂

I’ve also shared some other styles from the collection that I am loving here for you to browse! Can’t wait to see where your new Lilly takes you, even if it’s just to the front porch and back haha!
