Now that the dust from the Lilly Pultizer for Target fiasco has settled, I've finally worn my first & only Lilly dress. I stayed up late the night it launched and luckily was able to get my hands on this dress and two pairs of shoes.

I've never owned a "real" Lilly Putlizer dress so I have nothing to compare this one to, but overall I think it was a pretty good quality collection (I've heard dome quips about quality with Target collaborations in the past). My only complaint was that it creased pretty easily once I sat, but I'm sure that's true for any cotton shift dress.

The hardest thing for me was trying to figure out where to wear it and how to style it. I don't live in the South and never go out for brunch, so I thought I'd take a crack at wearing it to work. I'm lucky to work in a business casual office (I'd never wear this to a formal office).

The dress is a statement in and of itself so I decided to anchor it with all white accessories, like this blazer & mules from Forever 21. Initially I had added some simple jewelry, but then decided to go the Coco Chanel route & take off those items.

Gin Blossoms
I was just in the South recently -- Charlotte, S.C. to be exact. I probably should have brought the dress with me on that trip, but decided it wasn't appropriate for the weekend's events.

My best friend from college lives there and we hadn't seen each other in a year. It was great catching up! We got a chance to go to a local strawberry festival, see the Gin Blossoms in concert (yes, the 90s band!), catch a movie, and ride the world's tallest & fastest giga coaster at Carowinds Amusement Park.

P.S. If you're taking a trip to Disney World this summer, check out my friend's business Prince Charming Vacations. They help you plan, organize & book the perfect vacation!
