Is lilac the new millennial pink? I know, I know… That’s quite a severe statement but it’s seemingly everywhere and I’m not mad at it. I bought this lilac-hued shirt on pre-order because I was so excited by the color, the pretty neckline, and the sweet bows on the sleeves. And I’m so glad I did because it was even better in person. Although it’s pretty short so if you have an oddly long torso like me, just wear it with high waisted jeans or skirts.
I’ve been seeing this shade of lilac. Don’t get me wrong, I love blush pink as much as the next millennial, but there’s something about the pretty shade of light purple everywhere that feels fresh and new.
I’m working on a post about great wedding guest dresses for next week, and I’m finding that a lot of my picks are pretty purple frocks like this lace one and this gorgeous silhouette from Gal Meets Glam.
On a completely unrelated note, Jack Rogers sent me a pair of their newest heels to test out and I’m super impressed. I usually hate wearing heels and just grin and bear it the whole time, but these are super comfy and understated for summer BBQs and even more casual weddings. They come in black, camel (mine), gold, and white.
And on the last unrelated note, I have no idea how to style my hair now that it’s so short so forgive all the ponytails for the next few weeks while I figure it out. Any short-haired friends have tips?
How are you planning to rock lovely lilac this summer?
