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!

Embellished Amber Lynn Sandal

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 16

J. Crew Factory just released new spring clothes so here is a round up of some of my favorites!

 

Chambray Ruffle Tie Sleeve Dress

I fell in love with tie sleeves when I first started seeing them last fall and I am so happy they are here to stay! I also love the chambray and I think it’s perfect for the transition from winter to spring.

Here are some cute earrings from BaubleBar that would look great with this dress! I love the lavender for spring but I think the gold would also look great!

End on End Ruffle Front Tank Top

This shirt comes in navy and light blue and it another great transition piece. You can wear it with a cardigan on those colder days and then once it gets a little warmer you can leave the sweater at home! This look wouldn’t be complete without pearl earrings and big sunglasses!

Scalloped Sidewalk Skirt

I didn’t know I needed this in my life but now I can’t live without it! The sidewalk skirt is my favorite J. Crew  piece and now there are scallops! I need this green color and it also comes in black, red, and blue. This skirt would also look so cute with these wedges from DSW:

Scalloped Cami

Sticking with the scallop theme how cute is this top?! I love the simple detail on the top and think it’s perfect for that put together look. This top comes in so many colors: lavender, white, mint, pink, and blue, but the pink and blue are almost gone so act fast! If you’re looking for shoes to wear with this cami those wedges above also come in black!

Tie Front Wrap

This shirt takes me back to the ballet days! It also comes in gray and black but I definitely prefer the pink! If you’re looking for shoes to go with this top definitely pick out some flats that tie at the ankle. This is a pair from Vince Camuto that I really love!

Bow Neck Sweater

If you don’t love this sweater you’re crazy! I think it is so cute and I had to include it once I saw it was back in stock! And it would look fabulous with the Vince Camuto flats!!

 

That’s all for today! Stay stylish!
