When I got this Flamingo Dress
for the girls the other week, I remembered that Wheeler had a similar one when she was two (see photo below
). When I set out to find a photo of her in it, I got sucked in. I spent nearly an our looking back at old pics of the children and got so teary-eyed. Time really does fly. Seems just like yesterday that they were this little. If I haven’t said it enough before, I’ve always loved my girls in Lilly dresses
, even as babies. And this flamingo print
was always a favorite of mine then. So glad Lilly brought this print back! Hope you enjoy some cute pics of my baby girls in their Lilly…
I mean. The sweetest, right??
If you’ve been reading for the past few days, it’s absolutely no secret anymore that the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale
starts at 8am! The girls are back at school this morning, and the boys have one more day with me until they start back, also. Luckily, I’ll be able to make it back home after dropping the girls off, before the sale starts. I’ll be all ready to sign in on my laptop (and phone) at 8am sharp, if not a little before!
If you hopped over to SSP before the sale starts this morning, feel free to check back here
for last-minute tips before the sale starts. You can also check out my Lilly favorites from this year below and enter my giveaway. Also, you can sign up for TrueFit
too (takes 6o seconds and no measurements are necessary
). Love this feature! As you’re shopping the sale, look near the sizes available and it’ll show you what size will fit you best (there’s an example of what it looks like on yesterday’s post
As the sale goes live, I’ll be updating my post throughout the day with my favorites from the sale!
Now, as for styles that I hope are part of the sale, in more prints…
– super soft and comfortable. I’ve got it in this navy color too
, now only $19. Go up a size if you want it to fit a little looser.
– a great fit and length, this is the same style here
, that I wore just last week.
– absolutely one of my favorite dresses for summer! Loved the swing to it.
This Monterey Dress
is super comfortable and versatile. I was able to wear it both as a cover-up and as a dress this past summer.
– I loved mine like this so much this past summer that I picked up another one during the last Lilly Sale. I’m hoping they have more of these in different prints.
And if Girls’ Swimsuits
are available during the sale, you better believe I’m stocking up. Obviously not for now, but for this summer!
A few other things to note, don’t forget to check the Accessories Section
! Usually there are some fun novelty Lilly items, but most of them are low stock so they sell out pretty quickly, so shop fast on those.
Another Elsa Top
is on my list – a no-brainer!

When I logged in, I was #4300 in line. While it said it would take over an hour to be able to shop the site, it only ended up taking me 40 minutes to get to the front of the line. I’m sure I missed out on some favorites, but there was still a lot to choose from. And talk about a smooth transaction! I think this is a first for Lilly! The site didn’t crash!! Kudos, Lilly Headquarters! After I’m at the front of the line again, I’ll be sure and share my favorites from the sale for you.
UPDATE #2: MY FAVORITES

Hurry though, everything is selling out quickly!
Daphne Dress (I actually have this style in two other prints, but just ordered this navy one too I love it so much. It looks super short on the model, but you know how I don’t like short dresses. I’m 5’6″ and it’s not too short. For sizing, go with your usual size.) // Elsa Top (Love the colors of this one!) // Aerial Flowy Tank // Iona Tank (Love this style so much for summer, especially that it’s silk.) // Tye Blue Top // Melle Trapeze Tank Dress // Colette Tunic Dress (Not as short as it appears here, and it runs big, so make sure and size at least one size down.) // Roslyn Dress (Love how pink this dress, but beware it is bright pink!) // Abigail Shift Dress
