Recently, I’ve been pouring over the new Lilly Pulitzer Spring Line which has led to a few (okay, maybe more than a few) trips to their store. While trying on pretty much everything in Pink Colony, I came across this Alessia Maxi Henley Dress in Bright Navy For The Halibut print. I had first seen this dress a few months ago while reading one of my favorite blogger’s, Carly Heitlinger, from The College Prepster, post about her time in Caneel Bay. After recongnizing it from her blog, I decided I would try it on for fun. Once I put this dress on, however, I felt so comfortable and confident and knew I just had to have it. This dress is so great because while it looks great on the straigther shaped models, I felt I looked just as good despite being curvier. I absolutely adore this print because it’s got that Lilly vibe with sublter colors of reds and blues. The colors combined with a maxi length skirt and 3/4 sleeves makes it perfect for anytime of the year.
Here I have it paired with my gold Lilly Pulitzer Tassel Clutch, gold espadrille wedges I picked up at Old Navy last summer and a red and pink statement necklace I bought at Burlington Coat Factory the other day. My Alex and Ani bangles with my heart initial ring and Kate Spade bow ring finished off the look perfectly.
I wore the dress all day in Charleston when the weather was a little cooler. The fabric is thick enough to keep the wind from breaking through and I paired it with a white denim jacket when the temperature dropped lower at night.
