Best Winter Lilly Pulitzer Dress + Lilly Store on Madison Ave!

     Today's outfit was definitely in my top three favorites that I wore at NYFW! I am obsessed with this gorgeous Lilly Pulitzer dress from Pink Colony- and I knew that I had to save it for our shopping day in the Upper East Side.

     This might be my favorite fall/winter cocktail dress ever! The navy color makes it perfect to wear in the cooler months, but the shiny embellishments make it so eye-catching and just plain fun! I feel like this dress would be perfect for a fancy date night or Girls' Night Out, any type of cocktail-attire winter event, rehearsal dinners, etc. So many options! This gorgeous dress is from Pink Colony, a Lilly Pulitzer specialty boutique in Vermont. I also styled another outfit from NYFW from Pink Colony, which you can see here!

     I decided to style this dress with my favorite purple over-the knee-boots, as I thought the dark purple and navy would coordinate well together! It also helped to have my legs covered in the cold February NYC weather. However- I think this dress would also look beautiful with a pair of navy pumps! I'd definitely keep my shoe choices in a solid color and more simple, since this dress itself is such a statement piece.

     Gentry and I had so much fun taking these photos outside of the Lilly Pulitzer store on Madison Ave.! Getting to finally visit this iconic Lilly store was such a dream- it truly exceeded my expectations. Every single design detail was thought of in this two story pink wonderland- each room got better than the one before! The staff at this store was also so personable and friendly, which made the experience even better. Here are a few iPhone snaps from our visit:

     Thank you again to the Pink Colony team for sending Gentry and I such fantastic Lilly Pulitzer outfits to wear in New York. I couldn't have picked a better dress to wear for visiting such a special Lilly store. Also, be sure to head to Gentry's blog, Girl Meets Bow, today to see how she styled her look for visiting the Lilly store!

     God Bless,
