Today is Emma’s first day of pre-school, so I’ll come back on after drop-off to both announce the winner AND announce a new giveaway. So be sure to check back!
Okay. So here are, in my opinion, the 10 best products to look for today:
Solid Elsa Tops or Printed Elsa Tops: This flowy silk top is incredibly versatile and flattering. I own it in several solid colors and wear it year-round tucked into skirts and jeans, and even under certain dresses. Runs TTS.
Sweaters: In general, this is what I usually shop for during After Party Sales, since they occur at the beginning of the fall and then mid-winter. Looking forward to scoring a couple this year!
Luxletic Leggings: THE. BEST. I compare the softness to Lululemon’s Align Pant. They’re THAT good. I’d say they run pretty TTS, though I do go up one size since I don’t like my leggings to be very tight. They’re still very fitted!
Popovers: I’ve loved the Skipper Popover line for a long, long time. First, it features UPF 50+, which every girl–vampire or not–can appreciate. Second, there’s some spandex in it, making it super soft, flattering and less prone to wrinkles. Third, I love how the collar pops. Adorable. Fourth, it looks good with a bump! (For all my preggos.) Runs TTS.
Strappy Silk Dresses: I have this dress in one print, but I wish I had it in like five others. It’s another unbelievably flattering number! Can’t recommend it more. It runs on the larger side, so definitely size down. But it hangs in the perfect way on every girl I’ve ever seen it on. Beautiful.
Maxi Dresses: My weakness. They’re amazing because they make you look like you tried, they’re amazingly comfortable, they provide added sun protection, and they allow you to bend over to pick up your toddler/baby without worry of flashing the world. Lilly makes some gorgeous ones!
The Essie Line: The Essie cut–which has been used for tops and shorter dresses, too– is probably the most flattering Lilly cut ever. It works great for all body types, as it’s both forgiving and slimming. (Magic cut, I tell you!) Essie products are usually made of a t-shirt material, so you’ll get a ton of wear out of ’em during warmer months. Runs TTS. (Note that this is a dress that works extremely well for pregnancy. Since there are buttons down the front, it’s very functional once you have the baby as well.)
T-Shirt Dresses: Because dresses featuring Lilly prints can often look very dressy, I tend to go for Lilly t-shirt dresses, as my life most often takes place is informal settings. ;) My Lilly t-shirt dresses are definitely my most-worn t-shirt dresses in my closet! I always go up a size for a more casual look.
Harper Shift Dress: GREAT dress. I have it in a bunch of different colors/patterns because it’s so insanely comfy. Its material is almost terry-like, but the detailing makes it look polished. I wear this in the summer when I’m not sure what the vibe will be. (I hate looking over- or under-dressed, but this dress works either way because of that terry material! TTS.)
Skipper Dresses: Runs slightly large, but it is intended to look that way. (I do, however, order a size down.) My go-to Jersey Shore dress. Perfect to throw on after a day at the beach.
What are you hoping to score today?!
