Labor Day In Lilly! - PrepEssentials

Labor Day In Lilly!

This holiday weekend was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long time, and considering all of the fun things I’ve been up to lately, that’s really saying something! I headed down to Indianapolis to visit two of my lifelong best friends, and Saturday morning we moved even further South and came back to Louisville for the weekend!
Their family has practically adopted me since I was younger, so visiting them feels just like visiting my own parents and is equally as comforting. They just moved into a stunning new home, and I truthfully have zero interest in leaving…I may or may not have brainstormed ways I could stick around even longer!
Most of the weekend was fairly low key, but on Saturday night we went out to dinner and decided it was a perfect excuse to dress up a little (aka raid their mom’s incredible closet…) Their new patio was so stunning, and I was really loving the Lilly Dress (similar here and here) I had on loan for the night, so I couldn’t help but to snap a few pictures!
The weather couldn’t have been more perfect in Louisville this weekend, and I was absolutely loving this fit and flare dress! Unfortunately, this exact one is no longer available (for now) but I highly recommend the fit and flare style dresses from Lilly…the cut was so flattering, incredibly comfortable, and super light and airy. I found a few favorites in the same style here, here and here!
You can also shop this look and similar Lilly Pulitzer dresses below!

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

How was your Labor Day weekend? Anyone else get as amazing weather as we were having down in Louisville?

      Thank you so much – I knew I had to try it on as soon as I saw it in the closet, and it was so comfortable all night long (despite MANY dinner courses…)!

      You're too sweet! It was a super-flattering style, so even though they are sold out of this color, I still highly recommend the other Lilly Pulitzer Fit and Flare Dresses!
