National Wear Your Lilly Day 2020.

     Saturday was the first day of summer, and that also meant it was National Wear Your Lilly Day! COVID-19 might've cancelled a lot of things this year, but Lilly lovers coming together to wear their favorite brand wasn't one of them. 😉

     Let me introduce you to one of my favorite Lilly dresses ever! This was an After Party Sale find from last September. I remember that this dress didn't get added to the sale until the second or third day, and as soon as I saw it there I bought it immediately! The style is the Davina dress, and the print is Havana Cocktail. I think the Davina is such a classy cocktail dress style- I hope that Lilly might bring it back soon in a new print or two! 

    This outfit is what I probably would've worn to my friend Gentry's wedding in Florida last month!. Gentry is a total Lilly queen (her fiancé proposed at her local Lilly store!), and I thought it would only be fitting to wear the brand we both love so much to her Big Day. Her large wedding has been postponed for COVID-19, and they ended up having an intimate ceremony on the original day in May. Hopefully I can wear this to her rescheduled large wedding celebration, or for another cocktail event! Not sure when fun and large events will be resuming... but I've got the dress and shoes ready to go! 😀

    A quick note on these shoes too: they're almost identical dupes for the $300+ Loeffler Randall Penny Mules. They are comfortable, easy to walk in, and SO cute!! I dressed them up for this outfit, but I've also been wearing them to work with some more casual looks. Can't recommend them enough, and you can get an extra 15% off them with code alk315

     Here's a look back at my past National Wear Your Lilly Day looks! I've been celebrating since 2013 (I got my first Lilly dress in December 2012), but I started annual blog posts for it in 2015:
