A Very Lilly Graduation Weekend

Hey hey hey! It’s my first post as a college graduate! I wanted to share what I wore for some last minute ideas for anyone heading to a graduation in June.

Up first is Baccalaureate. At our school Baccalaureate is a senior run program and it’s a chance for students in our class to reflect on their experience at school. At first I didn’t even think I needed to pick out an outfit for Baccalaureate because I was going to be dancing in it.

Oh hey look it’s Allison from peoniesandpilates

As much as I loved the purple costumes, it didn’t look quite right hanging out of the bottom of our robes so I picked another purple dress.

All Lilly everything

I was actually about to put on a black dress and then I realized I had the unique opportunity of getting my grad cap to match my dress.

A grad cap decorating post is coming soon!

While my dress isn’t available on the Lilly website anymore, I have linked a similar style here. The Mila shift is a little more form fitting than the dress I wore but it has the bows on the side!

On to graduation!

For graduation I wore the same white Lilly I wore when I graduated high school. In high school our robes were white so we pretty much had to go with a white dress but I thought it was just such a perfect dress that I had to wear it again.

The only problem? I’ve only worn it a handful of times since then but it actually started to yellow a little bit. The only thing I could think of to fix it was OxiClean, I kept hearing Billy Mays telling me it was the only way to whiten my dress and he was right! After two washes it was back to white!

The Lilly shoes made another appearance

I have linked two different white Lillys here. The first is the Aliza Midi dress, and it has very similar lace. The Maya Shift dress is also lace and it has the nicest neckline.

Let me know what you are wearing to graduation in the comments!

Weekly Style 15

How could I not write about Lilly this week when Lilly swim just came out! Right now it’s  40 degrees and rainy but as Lilly said, “Not always sunny, but always in a sunny state of mind.”

The first Lilly I bought from the APS was a swim coverup so I was so excited to find out Lilly swim was back!

The first piece I am obsessed with is the Cay Twist Bandeau

My favorite pattern is Multi Catch The Wave but Twilight Blue Gypsea is also gorgeous and I don’t think you can go wrong either way! You can find the matching bottoms here. Another options for bottoms are here and they have a little bit of a wider band.

This coverup is adorable! The pattern and the fringe make it so fun and it also looks cool!

And for towels you have the Circa Round Beach Towel

This looks like the perfect spot to curl up and read a book all day!

And what else would you use to carry all your stuff to the beach besides the Destination Beach Tote

This bag comes in tons of fun destinations like Naples, Sarasota, and Key West but how could you not pick where it all started!

Let me know you you will be mixing and matching all these fun prints on your way to the beach!

Stay stylish!
