Lilly for Target Review: Take 2

Lilly Pulitzer for Target Fan Dance Shift Dress || J.Crew Factory Denim Jacket || Jack Rogers Gold Navajo (but I'm digging these chambray and gold ones and these cork and gold ones and they're both such a steal! Off 5th has it going on right now.  These Jack Rogers Ballet Flats are under $50.)
Here's an up close of the fabric and lace - such a great stretch weave, if you ask me.  I feel like these run a lightly larger true to size if you're trying to buy on the resale market.  Last I checked it looked like things were simmering down to more reasonable prices.

This was my other online purchase, and I think it's my favorite.  I really love Lilly's commitment to continuing to produce a large selection of dresses with higher necklines.  Especially since they're pretty short, it's nice to know that I don't have to be too careful about the bottom of the dress and the top haha.

I have lots of weddings, events, and a beach trip planned this summer, so I've been trying to strategically plot what events to wear this dress to so that I can maximize the number of times I get to wear it but minimize the amount of people who have to see me in it too many times. (You guys know what I mean, I'm sure!) 

I finished my last (in-class) exam today and just have two more take home exams due before I am officially done with college.  I don't think I've mentioned enough on here that I'm graduating college. ;)  Sad it's over, but cute summer clothes make me excited for whatever's next.

Hope you guys are having a happy Wednesday!


  1. Congratulations on graduating! That Lilly dress looks so cute on you and will be perfect for summer weddings (:

  2. Congrats on graduating!
    Love that Lilly dress on you.
    And I agree, higher neckline allows for a little shorter of a hemline.
    I had gotten the Fan Dance Shift and I felt like it was more snug than most of my Lilly dress especially in the boob area for some reason so maybe it just differed from dress to dress?

  3. I got this one too in the kid's section! I ended up buying a (10-12) because the 2 in women's was HUGE on me!

  4. I'm a fan of Lilly's high necklines too! Love this dress!

  5. I am always a big fan of conservative silhouette and Lilly never disappoints! They are great for work and more casual settings. Congrats on graduating!! xo.

  6. Oh my gosh you look so cute! I love this! It can really work for so many different occasions! Congrats on graduating!

  7. Congratulations on graduating soon! Also I love that purchase. I bought the Upstream shift from Lilly For Target and I am so thankful I was able to grab that before the craziness happened.

  8. Congrats on your upcoming graduation! If that's not a reason to lounge around this summer in your cute Lilly dress and toast to your accomplishments all summer, I don't know what is. ;-)

  9. I love how you paired with a denim jacket for a more casual look! I always feel like my lilly pieces are so dressy that I can't pair them with lesser pieces!

  10. Love this! This dress is perfect for summer.

  11. The dress I bought was true to size on me, so I was pretty pleased.

  12. This is such a cute dress. I love the high neck line. I think it's much more classier. I didn't even get to check out any of the Lily for Target pieces :)
