I hope none of you are sticklers about not wearing white about Labor Day because 1) it’s still a summery 90 degrees in Dallas and 2) I just had to share this twirl-worthy little white dress! I’ve been on a LWD binge since getting engaged and this one is a new favorite.

Lilly Pulitzer just opened the most beautiful store at NorthPark Center last week and invited me to stop in and pick up a few goodies before their grand opening this weekend! The dressing rooms are all hand-painted and some of them are even decked out in seashells… I was basically in heaven and that was before I did some serious retail therapy. If you’re in Dallas, stop by this Saturday, September 10, for the grand opening party and you’ll see what I mean!

My friends Amy, Krystal, and I are cohosting a cocktail party next week to welcome Lilly Pulitzer to Dallas and (surprise, surprise) I picked up yet another little white dress to wear for the occasion. Thoughts on pairing this sparkly little number with a bright pink heel? As Lilly Pulitzer herself said, “Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink!”

  1. I wore a white Lilly dress with gold detailing and hot pink Kate Spade pumps for my graduation so I highly agree with the pink shoes!!!

  2. Love this look! Sometimes I find Lilly to be a little too much for me with all of the bright patterns, but I love how this dress is so wearable!

  3. Looove! This dress looks so cute on you! The new NorthPark store looks like such a dream (I remember YEARS ago when they had the old one and then it closed for awhile before this one came about)–can’t wait to stop by when I’m home visiting my parents!
