National Wear Your Lilly Day 2021.

       Happy National Wear Your Lilly Day! We have officially entered the season for Lilly Pulitzer. Summer 2021 is looking to be much more normal than Summer 2020, and I am bursting with excitement for all the fun social events coming up that I can wear Lilly for (and none of them include Zoom!). This year's outfit for National Wear Your Lilly day is certainly extra special.... if you saw this blog post you might be able to guess why. 💓

      Happy National Wear Your Lilly Day 2021! How exciting that this year I'm celebrating with a dress that shares my name. This beautiful dress style is called the Analeese! Even if it didn't have my name, I'd still love the dress. It's a flattering and classy midi dress- I really like the full skirt and the waist bow detail. This print is called Boatylicious, and the bold blue color with pops of red and white make it a perfect 4th of July outfit option I think! This dress was gifted to me by the Lilly Pulitzer team, and it made NWYLD extra special this year!! 

     I knew that for a print as nautical and summery as this, I wanted to take the photos at home on the beach in Maine during my May trip. Unfortunately the weather was miserable for three of the days I was home... I'm talking rain and high temperatures in the 40s (Yes- HIGHS in the 40s in May. Brrrr!!) Fortunately the last full day of my trip, it was sunny and 75. My dad and I snuck off to Colony Beach in Kennebunkport and he did the photos for this post- didn't he do a great job?! I am thankful that both my parents enjoy helping me with blog photos when I am home or they are visiting me. 

     Here's a little walk down memory lane for how I've celebrated National Wear Your Lilly Day on the blog in years passed:

  1. Your dad did such a beautiful job on these photos and I can see why you love this dress! I do too. The print and color is just a match made in heaven and I love how it flows with you. I bet twirling it in is so much fun. One of these days I will own an LP dress or romper! It's on my wish list!! I hope your day is off to a great start and happy Monday!
