Lady on the Town: Vibrant Lilly Pulitzer Style

Linnea White

This outfit is vivaciously va-va-voom, the epitome of vibrant Lilly Pulitzer style. I felt like a L A D Y in it. A lady on some street in a coastal Italian town  - not just 1st Street in Downtown Cville - although I really like that street, too. This is my Sex and the City moment, and I hope I made Carrie proud.

"Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink." - Lilly Pulitzer

Attention Lilly lovers: A whole selection of Lilly dresses came in last week, and this one called to me, saying, "Linnea, you don't normally gravitate towards pink, but this will make you look like a Barbie doll, so you should totally try it on for the blog." And I did. And I did feel like a human Barbie, but in a really good way. Like I said, I've never been much of a pink girl, but this dress made me rethink some things.

"Despite the forecast, live like it's SPRING." - Lilly Pulitzer

Lilly knows what's up. I never knew she was so quotable. Way to go, Lilly. Keep doing you.

"Being happy never goes out of a style." - Lilly Pulitzer 

You know what makes me happy? The fact that this Vespa was serendipitously placed when we went outside for the shoot, and it matched the dress. I mean, WHAT THE WHAT. Praise be to GAWD. All I could have asked for to make it complete is just to be literally transported to an Italian coastal town. That would be nice. But this little slice of heaven in Charlottesville will do for now.

Valentine's Day Outfit: Pink vs. Red

Linnea White

vdaycollage.jpg

It's Valentine's Day, darlings, and that means it's time for an epic battle of love (right?). We styled two Valentine's Day outfits for two kinds of gals - the Lady in Red or Pretty in Pink (a.k.a. 80's Barbie). From sugar to spice, we've got that last minute VDay outfit inspiration you need.

P.S. I went a little crazy with a lavender hair toner to see what would happen, and had a little temporary lilac hue going when we did this shoot! This hair makeover is giving me LIFE these days. Once you go platinum white, you never go back... right?

Pretty in Pink

I felt like a cupcake in this dress - in the best way possible. All the girly vibes had me ready for an 80's themed VDay party. I added my vegan leather jacket to edge up the look a bit, and a pair of new sunnies for that extra touch of glam. Don't forget a locally made lipstick in hot pink!

Lady in Red

Silk = sexy. This silk DVF dress is SO va-va-voom, I was swooning as soon as it touched my skin. For the spicier gal, this dress is made to show off some curves, and light up the room in the crisp red hue. With a dress this sexy, keep the accessories simple and understated. I opted for a pair of tassel earrings by Pan&Tea, a classic (locally made) red lipstick, and a side swept 'do to add a touch of elegance. And just because, threw my Anthropologie leather jacket over my shoulders again for that finishing statement piece.
