Update: Giveaway closed. Congrats to Carrie and Sarah Ann!
The last week has been a tough one for me personally and an extremely tough one for all of us globally. Personally, I had a really scary experience that shook me to my core. If you missed the story on Instagram, I went for a vitamin IV drip with a friend for something different to do on a night out together. I had an adverse reaction to the magnesium sulfate in the drip and my throat closed, my lips and cheeks swelled up, my heart was racing, and I saw stars. When it finally ended, I had severe cramps for about 30 minutes and was shaking and freezing. I had never had anything like that happen before and I literally thought I was dying. It was one of the most terrifying things that has ever happened to me.
It took a full two days to feel like myself again, and I’m feeling more grateful than ever for my health right about now.
Globally, it feels like the entire world is falling apart and (literally) burning to the ground. There are too many things going on to even mention them all but the ones weighing the heaviest on my mind are the seemingly endless amount of mass shootings that have me scared to take my own daughter to public places (help by donating to Everytown), the Amazon fires (see how you can help here), and the families that are still separated at our borders (5 ways to help migrant families right now).
So today I just want to step away from all of the heaviness and share two pretty dresses that make me happy. And spread that happiness by giving two of them away. It’s also a reminder that it’s ok to take a minute and lighten up when things are dark and stormy. That said, I encourage you to stay educated, donate your money and/or time if you can, and spread the message about what is going on in the world.
Just because fall is around the corner doesn’t mean you have to dull down the colors and patterns. Why not wear bright green leopards and hot pink stripes, you know? Lilly Pulitzer sent me two very different dresses for early fall and I’m very into both of them. The first is an amazing maxi dress in the most beautiful shade of green covered in leopards with pink detailing it. I belted it but you definitely don’t have to and it would be a great bump-friendly dress for all you mamas-to-be out there. If you like the pattern but not this dress style, it also comes in a Palazzo pant (so fun) and a romper.
The second is a form-fitting sweater dress that hugs your body in all the right places. I love the colors on this one and the way it makes me feel feminine and happy.
Comment below with which dress is your favorite and where you would ear it. I’ll give away one of each to two lucky gals! PS this giveaway isn’t sponsored by Lilly Pulitzer, I will be buying the dresses for the winners.
I would wear the beautiful green Lilly dress to my cousin’s wedding in September!
I love the green one! It would be a great fall dress for work to keep good color flow going in the office!
I loooove that sweater dress! The colors make me so happy. I had a baby recently and would love to spruce up my wardrobe with that dress to feel more like myself again – and wear it for our first post baby date night!
The leopard green – perfect for an upcoming wedding and a trip to FL in the winter!
Love the sweater dress and that Lilly is trying new cuts and styles! Would love to win one – just had my 2nd baby and new clothes always make you feel good.
Love the green maxi, the print is so fun! Would love to wear it to celebrate my 25th birthday!
The green. Love the mix of colors and stripe down the side.
I love both but the Green dress would be perfect for vacation or a girls dinner! Xo
The blue-green toned dress is my fave. I’d wear it to some pre-fall events (i.e. showers or a party I’m hosting).
Loving the green maxi! Lilly prints make me ooo happy. I’m currently 8 months pregnant so it would be a bit before I could actually wear it. Thinking a fun vaca for early Spring!
Love the pink sweater dress! Id wear it on a much needed date night with my husband!!
I’d wear the green dress out for drinks with friends!
I love both of these dresses! They are so fun. I think I would pick the maxi dress because I love the slit on the side. J would wear it for rooftop drinks on a much needed date night with my husband!
Love them both but really into the green one! I have a wedding in early Fall I would love to wear it to.
I absolutely love the green maxi dress! So perfect after having a baby as it seems so forgiving! I would wear this to upcoming baby or bridal showers or upcoming weddings! This is a closet must-have!
The maxi is stunning! I love it for date night.
the green one just stands out more because it’s such a unique color! The other one looks great too, but I would wear the green one to an upcoming Wedding in Michigan. My friend is marrying the perfect guy for her. This is extra special because her first husband was abusive and sexually assaulted her. She deserves this happy ending so much!
I would totally rock the Lilly maxi dress at an end of summer BBQ accompanied by some white booties or cute mules!
I love the green maxi! Sweater dresses are cute, but there’s rarely an opportunity to wear them in South Florida. My husband and I have plans to attend a farm dinner this fall and the green dress would be perfect.
I’m glad you’re on the mend and were able to find comfort.
Tough choice but I love the green maxi! I would wear it on my late season beach trip with girlfriends!
The green leopard maxi dress! Recently found out I’m pregnant after a long fertility journey and now I can start dreaming about bump friendly clothing! Would be perfect to wear for our wedding anniversary the end of September!
Definitely the sweater dress!! I’d pear it with some cute sneaks and wear it to some type of back to event for my son 😉 #thatmomlife my gf’s mom used to go out to the local bar with the other moms after these events and that’s the type of mom I wanna be! Haha. They would all have so much fun together. 🙂
I am not usually one for maxi dresses, but I LOVE that dress. You styled it really well with the belt and shoes too. It would look great for a night out to dinner and a show!
Love the Lilly! So
Versatile effortless and fun!! Would
Be amazing for end
Of summer family photos!
The green dress is beautiful! I would wear it on date night or drinks with girlfriends!!
I would wear the sweater dress to a wedding that I’m going to this fall! It’s so bright and colorful!
I love both dresses, but cannot get over that maxi! It would be great for the many weddings we have this fall!
Love the sweater dress! I would wear it on my girls trip to Charlotte, NC!
Love the turquoise Lilly! I’d wear it on a trip to Italy later this year
Love them both! That green dress is so fun! It makes such a statement without being over the top. I’m such a sucker for pink & stripes, but not quite in shape for something so fitted!
I would wear them EVERYWHERE!!! Grocery store or to a wedding, they are perfect!
I would absolutely wear the leopard to my cousin’s wedding in early fall in VA! So beautiful
For sure the green maxi! Its something that will fit perfectly in my wardrobe already.
Love that maxi dress!!
Love the pink sweater dress!! Perfect for work!
I’d love to wear the leopard dress to a casual wedding this September.
I LOVE the green leopard maxi to pieces! Such a fantastic dress for fall — long, and the sleeves! I’d love to wear this to a
Business event I have in September!
Both dresses are fabulous…but I have to go for the long green dress. I would wear it out to dinner off the boat this late summer/early fall.
Love the green maxi! We have a few family vacations planned for the fall. It would be a great dress to wear out for drinks with my husband.
So hard to choose!! But the floral is so pretty!! Would wear it out to dinner, grocery store, date night, honestly whenever, it’s too cute!
Love them both, but the leopard maxi dress is amazing! So perfect for end of summer parties!
Love the green Lilly maxi!! Would totally wear to to Napa next month! Girls trip 2019!
Can never go wrong with Lilly! Love the green dress!!! Would wear it on a much needed date night with the hubby!!! It’s been 6 months since we’ve had a date night (we have an 8 month old and 2.5 year old)
The green dress is stunning and would be perfect for a wedding in Arizona!
I love them all, but I especially love the palazzo pants! I am a professor and the style of those pants would be perfect to wear to work 🙂
LOVE the Green Maxi !! I would wear it on a Fall CT wine tour and be sure to get a flirty spinning picture with it on ( wine in hand)
Striped dress! Great for work!!!
My fiancé and I are trying to go to London in October for my 26th birthday (the 14th), that also doubles as our 5 year date-aversary and our one year of being engaged (the 12th)! The leopard maxi would be a dream to wear to celebrate all of that!
Love love love the green maxi. I’d probably wear it to work since I find it so hard to find great pieces that I enjoy wearing (and make me feel good) that I can transition from work to date night or GNO. Would also be a super fun date night dress. Who knows- could help finally attract Mr. Right! Good luck with your move! I can’t wait to see all you do with the home.
I am a huge Lily fan!
In fact I am wearing Lily shorts TODAY!
I would be happy with either dress.
I would wear the green and pink dress to Back to School Night at my Daughter’s school because their mascot is Tigers.
The striped dress would transition beautifully to Fall and would love to pair it with tall boots on a crisp fall day.
The leopards would normally be out of my comfort zone.. but they look so classy and chic on you! My favorite for sure! 🙂
The beautiful green Lilly! It’s perfect for a fall wedding or weekend get away!
I love the green dress, but I think I’d have to pick the pink sweater dress. I love the colors and I’m a sucker for a navy stripe, so this new combination will add a pop of color to my navy strip collection 🙂 I agree that it is bold and feminine, so I think it’s perfect for a girls’ lunch or a mommy & me date with my daughter! XXOO
Stripe not strip HAHAHA
The green leopards would normally be out of my comfort zone.. but they look so classy and chic on you! My favorite for sure! 🙂
I LOVE the Lilly dress, where wouldn’t I wear it?!? My wedding anniversary is in October, so I would definitely wear it for a special night out with my hubs.
I would wear the green maxi on a family cruise vacation with my in laws in December. Thankful to have in laws willing to help us create these family memories ❤️
The maxi! It’s the perfect dress for a date night or for the holidays coming up in October.
They are both adorable! I would wear the green one for a date night out!
Love the maxi! It’s very different for Lilly.
The pink is perfect for date night here in Old Town Alexandria, VA. I bet it would be cute with a pair of tall boots!
There must be something in the water, Emily – I’m in Old Town too and I also said I’d love to wear it with tall boots!!
Thank you for this post, and reflecting that you can be a concerned citizen and still enjoy nice things. I absolutely love the green dress and would wear it to a few weddings, work events, and date nights. It would get a lot of use!
Oh my goodness, if there was ever a dress that screamed “me,” that leopard maxi is IT! I need it in my life! Would be perfect – and so fun – for our at home family photo session after baby girl arrives in just 6 more weeks! Would also be perfect for that first post-baby date night out with my husband.
I absolutely love the maxi dress (and how you styled it) and would wear it on a date night with my husband!
The maxi dress is gorgeous! I love it styled with the belt. It would be perfect for date night
I love the form fitting sweater dress!!!! I’d wear it to work or dress it up with shoes for a date night w my husband!
The maxi would be perfect for fall in Florida and a wedding on the beach I have in October!
I love both, but my favorite is the leopard-covered Lilly Pulitzer! Since you said it is bump-friendly, I would wear it to the jungle-themed shower for our rainbow baby in September!
I’ve been trying to step out of the box, which for me is always wearing black. The sweater dress is something I would never normally wear, but you’re inspiring me to try color! Love the way it looks on you.
Love both but would pick the maxi dress! I would wear it on date night and for travels to warmer weather this winter!
The maxi dress would be perfect for my trip to savannah end of September!!! Actually, either would 🙂
The green maxi dress is my favorite! I am a college student/education major and would wear it to student teach!
Oooo I adore the maxi dress! Those are my absolute favorite colors. I just got my first big girl job and would love to wear it for my first day of work!
Since getting back to Pilates almost three months ago I feel soooo much better about myself so I would choose the fitted sweater dress and I would wear it everywhere! With sandals now and boots in the fall/winter! Congrats to whomever wins and thank you for sponsoring such a lovely giveaway!
I would wear the leopard dress to fall school meetings. It’s chic, colorful and fun – a perfect way to head into a gathering! Thanks
I love both of these dresses! I would wear the leopard dress to a fall wedding and the striped sweater dress to a fall activity – maybe Apple picking with some knee high boots too!
I love both but that maxi dress is just amazing! I am a music teacher and I would wear it to work, for weekends with the hubby or even nights out with the girls. It seems super versatile and would be a long last piece. It would even be perfect for an animal themed concert- so cute! So glad you’re feeling better, your insta stories were terrifying! Glad you’re back to “you”!
Sweater dress for work to brighten the day! Thanks for being so generous!
Julia, thank you for this post and I hope you’ve fully recovered from the allergic reaction – I can’t imagine how terrifying that must have been. I love the second dress! I’d wear it to a fall BBQ baby shower – the mama-to-be doesn’t know the sex of the baby yet so the navy and pink would be perfect with a pair of tall boots!
First off, so glad you are okay-what a scary moment!! Secondly, I am absolutely obsessed with the maxi! The colors, the pattern-the everything! How unique and simply stunning!
The Lilly dress for a friend’s rehearsal dinner in DC. Bring the preppy to the city!
Absolutely love the green dress! Would wear to dinner, brunch, an upcoming rehearsal dinner… everywhere!
Much love to both dresses! The green Lilly is made for a Mom and Dad date night in Miami this February 🙂
I am so glad you are okay! How scary! I love how you’re lightening up and sharing brightness through these dresses and through encouraging us to be educated – thank you! I love both of these dresses and how you’ve styled them but my favorite is the leopard! I would wear this on an upcoming vacation – my first weeklong vacation in 3 years!! I also think I’d be able to wear this into October with the Atlanta weather!
Love both! The sweater dress would be the perfect transition piece to wear to work. It’s cold, it’s hot. It’s cold, it’s hot. Do I wear a dress or a sweater or both in one 🙂
That maxi though!!!
I love both of these dresses so much! I would wear the green maxi out for a date night with my husband! I recently had a baby and date nights are rare so I try and make them extra special! The sweater dress would get so much wear this fall, it looks so cozy I can see myself wearing it all the time for no particular reason! Xo
I LOVE both dresses!! I have a wedding to attend every weekend of October and one of them is on my 30th birthday! I’m already overwhelmed. I would love to wear the green maxi on my birthday while at a wedding! P.S. I totally understand the feeling of the world seeming to fall apart. I was so happy when I sent you a post about the amazon and you replied back instantly that you would be sharing the news. So many bloggers today I don’t feel I can trust. I can’t tell you how many times I have ordered a dress that just doesn’t fit or look like the photo of some bloggers. I never have found that with any photo of a product you’ve posted! And you also comment on real issues facing society. Which makes me respect you and I just wanted to say thank you. It means a lot.
Ahhhh, love the tiger maxi/midi. I’d wear to a fundraiser at our local zoo on September 21st!!
Love both and you look fab. I’d totally wear the bright sweater dress with some tall boots for fall! Thank you for doing this fun giveaway!
Love both of them so much, but the sweater dress is something special. Would love to wear on a date night to the beach in early fall!!
The green one I would wear it to dinner for my husband’s birthday in a few weeks. It will be only our third date night in the 10 months since our daughter was born, and I’m trying to find something special to wear! After it makes its debut, I will wear it to my sister’s rehearsal dinner the following week… and every day after that because it’s so gorg!
I adore the leopard dress! I’d wear it to a fall wedding that I’m invited to and maybe even the grocery store!!
Both dresses are so fun for early fall! I would wear the sweater dress both to work on our college admissions office and for date night with my husband. Sweater season will be here in Western New York sooner than we’d all like.
Love the sweater dress!!! Would wear it out on a girls night out or date night!!!
I’m from south Florida and would TOTALLY wear the blue/green dress to the Breakers for drinks at HMF! It’s beautiful!
Oh my goodness, Julia you are too too sweet!! It has been one tough go for society lately, and we do need some good light right now! It is so hard to pick between these gorgeous dresses, but I think pink and navy striped one would fit well in my closet, hah! Thank you so much for doing this giveaway!! 🙂
oh I adore the classic sweater dress and would love to wear it all fall!! Thank you for being cognizant of the world while also helping everyone take a little light heartedness as well! <3
Julia- I feel you so hard right now! Aside from globally, personally my life is chaotic now. Moving with a baby and a toddler is bonkers and I’m trying my best to be there for them, and have lost myself on the journey of making sure they’ve settled and are happy. So I’d wear these dresses on a night out on the town with my friends or my husband as a reminder of sunshine and baby smiles after 12 hours of sleep and my toddler laughing like a maniac… all while I’m having a nice glass of white wine and remembering and rediscovering what makes me happy (aside from my munchkins). Thanks for showcasing these beauties! Since you’re asking for a favorite, I think the striped sweater dress is beyond fabulous!!!
Hey Julia! I just moved to Houston, TX from the Northeast. I’m naturally introverted (actually, an introverted extrovert) and need to make friends here in town. I know no one! Eek. I think these two dresses would be great conversation starters to wear out as I know I’d receive many compliments and questions, and could hopefully start to build some friendships The dresses are bold and beautiful, outside of the box, and sure to grab attention, which is exactly what I need here to meet new people and put myself out there!!
Keep up the positivity and love for the world and environment, even when it seems impossibly hard your voice matters!
The green! The style and color and so different. Plus the pattern is perfect to show feminine strength and power. Love it. I’d feel so powerful in that dress.
I would wear it everywhere- to work, for a girls night out, date night.
I would wear the leopard number on date night with my new husband!
Love your blog Julia, thanks for the heavy and the light.
Love love the green! It would be perfect to wear to work- I work at a university and teach future public health students! Sometimes public health is grim, so I like to at least dress colorfully!
Favorite is the green, so pretty! Would wear out to dinner in the city
I would wear the green for sure, definitely for a fall date night!!
The green Lilly dress! I’d wear it on my upcoming trip to the Bahamas or to my friends wedding in early October. I’m getting ready to re-do my bathroom and it reminds me of the tropical wallpaper I’m eyeing!
They are both so perfect it’s hard to choose! I love the maxi! Perfect to wear to school or a girls night out!
Definitely the sweater dress! Either Fridays at work or I’ll find an excuse to get a babysitter and go out to dinner with my husband
Love the Lilly maxi, the powerful tiger is beautiful!! I would love to wear this to a summer shindig.
LOVE that green dress! Perfect for a fall date night! Glad you’re feeling better and back to yourself.
This is so generous of you, thank you for sharing love amidst all the chaos going on in our world.
Also, so glad you’re feeling better from the IV experience and that it wasn’t a worse outcome.
The AMAZING Maxi Dress! And I would wear it when my husband and I finally go on a real vacation (first in 5 years) this December (somewhere south & warm).
I love the sweater dress and would wear it for my daughters 1st birthday!
I would love to wear these to my classroom the first day of school! Being an elementary teacher I think adding color and brightness in any way brings so much joy to the students. They also love to see a teacher in different prints and colors!
Love that leopard maxi! Need something to wear to my son’s baptism, that postpartum body life.
I am obsessed with the green Lilly pulitzer dress! It’s such a great pattern/color to transition wearing Lilly into the fall. I would pack this to wear to the Sydney opera house during our trip to Australia this October!
I’m loving the green dress! I think I’d wear it to an upcoming baby shower and then dress it down for an early fall date night!
The blue one i would wear it to a Labor Day party!!
Obsessed with the maxi! Who doesn’t need a little leopard print to feel fierce for a GNO!
That pink dress looks like it was made just to fit you perfectly! So hard to pick a favorite of the two, but that cheetah is so fun! Hoping for a lighter week before your move! xoxo
The green dress is my favorite and I would have so much fun wearing it to my friend’s baby shower this fall!
I love that sweater dress! I’d wear this in Acadia when I’m up there in October and Maine will (probably) already have snow!
That sweater dress would be PERFECT for fall at the office!!Even into the colder months with tights and booties!
The maxi dress is my favorite! Would be perfect for a fall date night along the Savannah River sans toddler!
Oh! I love them both but I think I’d get s ton of wear out of the pink and blue striped dress. With boots in the fall it would be a fun work dress. We can’t wear jeans but are casual. I’m constantly looking for ways to keep the work wear fun!
I love the green dress! I would wear it on a date with my husband. We haven’t been on date night in almost 7 months since our daughter was born. I have been too anxious to leave her with a babysitter, but I think i’ve come to terms with it? fingers crossed.
I love the green maxi! It’s so versatile to dress up or down and would be fantastic for transitioning to fall.
Wow absolutely love the tiger one! My sister is obsessed with Lilly, so I would wear it to her baby shower for sure coming up! I’d also wear it on date nights that I want to slay! (But there’s also the possibility I would give it to my sister because I know how incredible she would look in it!)
I am loving that sweater dress! So fun and flattering, and those shoes are perfect with it

Love the green maxi – perfect for dinner for my upcoming cruise
I love the sweater dress! I would wear it to work and out with friends.
I love the green Lily one! Omg!
My husband and I need a date night so badly (we have a just turned 1 year old girl and 3 year old boy)! So date nights have been nonexistent! I would love to surprise him wearing this beautiful dress and go out for a date!
Maxi dress! So gorgeous. Definitely a great fall event dress and important work day dress. Looks fabulous on you!
Ohhhhh all the votes for the green!!! I’m obsessed with the color! I would probably wear it to dinner or a baby shower bc that’s all I do these days , but any event in Lilly makes me so happy!!
I love them both! I would wear the green one to a wedding this fall!
I ❤️❤️❤️ both, but the green seems too good to pass up! Have a few weddings in early fall and a bump that’s due late fall! Would be a great addition to the wardrobe! Thank you Julia and so happy to hear you are feeling back to your old self! Very much looking forward to watching you decorate your future home!!!
Love them both but am partial
To the stripes!! And pink! The green would be perfect for an upcoming fall wedding though! Fingers crossed!
I would wear the green maci dress to my sister’s rehearsal dinner this fall! I just absolutely love the color combinations and think it will be perfect!! Thank you for sponsoring such a lovely giveaway!
I so feel you on the heaviness feeling over the past few weeks although through the past 3 years of this presidential term, I’ve had a hard time reading the news because it all seems so negative. I hope that only good comes out of this and we are more united than ever.
As for the dresses, I have 5 weddings this fall plus my own honeymoon so I know between all the travel and events, it would get lots of wear! Especially on my tropical adventure with my new husband to Costa Rica and Panama 🙂
Love them both! Lilly is my absolute favorite! I would wear the green one to work and on a date night!
The maxi dress is so beautiful! I’ve been in such a rut outfit-wise with this second pregnancy and I’m happy you mentioned that it’s bump friendly! Thank you for such a great post!
I am a Lilly lover and I was not into this print at all – that is until I saw it on you and how you styled it! You encourage me to mix up styling Lilly with other seasonally appropriate accessories and I would have so much fun with this one now! Thanks for doing this post and giveaway!
You are amazing! Thank you for the links to donate! I always want to help but want to make sure I’m donating somewhere who will get the most value from my donation:
On a lighter note, I love the green dress, it would be perfect for a beach wedding we’re attending in October.
I love the sweater dress – not your traditional Lilly. This would be perfect for date night.
First of all, How scary for you! Did you end up in the ER? that would terrify me too. 🙁 that is awful how you both intended for a fun evening and then that happened.
I adore the green leopard dress. I see wearing it for girls nights, a much needed date with hubby or a lunch with my mum. Good Luck everyone!
Loveeee the Lilly gown!! I would wear it out to date night dinner at a new restaurant or for ladies night out with girlfriends! It looks so effortlessly chic and the styling here is perfect!
I looove the maxi dress! Such a pretty color. I would wear it to brunch with my family!
I could totally see wearing either of these to the office! I work in a corporate environment but they went jeans-casual, full-time a couple of years ago. But i can get stuck in a jeans rut sometimes and these pretty sassy dresses would really make someone stand out!!
I’d wear both of them on date night with my handsome fiancé! He loves when I wear bright colors and I these two dresses would make him as happy as they make me! 🙂
Love them both! But I’d have to say the green one is my favorite I’d be so exited to wear it on date night with my BF or really anywhere because I love Lilly dresses
I love both but especially the pink sweater dress – would be perfect to wear with my growing baby bump this fall!
I love the green leopard! Similar to this post, life has been feeling heavy lately with lots of transitions and upheaval in my family life. I am trying to focus on the positive, which includes a growing bump that we are SO very thankful for. I would wear it out with friends or on a date night as a reminder of the happy, bright things in life!
I would wear the gorgeous green Lily maxi dress on vacation in September. My husband our going away together for our first time since our baby was born last July to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary!
I’ll wear them teaching here in Hawaii – Lilly season all year!
I would wear the gorgeous Green Lilly maxi on vacation. My husband and I are going away next month for the first time together (for more than a night) to celebrate our 5 Year Wedding Anniversary!
I absolutely LOVE the green maxi dress and would wear it to my friend’s wedding. Both dresses look amazing on you!
I love finding ways to bring lilly into fall.. and love both of these dresses! I’m super into the maxi’s right now.. a great transitional piece. I have approximately 13 showers to go to this fall.. so I’m sure it would make an appearance to a few! I think if you paired it with different shoes or a jean jacket it would have a different look.
I love the pink and navy striped dress! I would wear it on weekends to dinner and drinks with friends
OMG that striped dress is amazing! I would wear it to work as a high school counselor 🙂
I have been absolutely dying over the leopard print maxi!!! It is so classic and fun! I’d wear it to two fall weddings we have coming up- my first outings after having our second daughter!
I love the pink dress; I think it would be great to wear on the weekends out and about with my daughter. And easy outfit to look cute in! That’s what I’m all about these days. I also have a wedding in Cape Cod in a few weeks where the green dress would work perfectly!
I love the green maxi! I think it would be the perfect dress for an outdoor wedding I am going to in September. I could also see myself wearing this at work. The color and print is amazing!
I love the leopard maxi so much! Would be perfect for my best friends rehearsal dinner
I adore the maxi dress and would love to wear it to an upcoming bridal shower I will attend. It would be such a treat to have a new dress for a special occasion for one of my lifelong best friends.
I would wear the pink sweater dress to work!
You look amazing in both of these! I feel like the sweater dress is super versatile, but the green maxi is just so gorgeous – that one is definitely my favorite!
To celebrate our 10 year anniversary! We’ll be sure to book a sitter!
The green lily print dress.
It’s stunning and would be perfect to wear for our 10 year anniversary dinner.
My gosh how does one decide! I think the striped would be more practical for me and I could wear it to an upcoming baby shower, a wine fest!!, or a girls Mexican night!
So glad you’re feeling better and looking forward to following you designing your new house! 🙂
I’m due in October and the green Lilly looks like it will be forgiving post maternity. And inspiring to get back in shape!
I love the sweater dress and would wear it to back to school night for my new kindergartener!
The maxi dress is awesome and would be perfect for a date night after kids are back at school!
I love the sweater dress SO much, but that green leopard dress would be beyond perfect for two special weddings I have this fall. My cousin is getting married in Hilton Head in October and my brother in law is getting married in Vero Beach in November. There are beach parties as part of both wedding weekends and that dress is just TOO perfect! Fingers crossed!!
I’d wear the Lilly dress to my upcoming work fundraisers!
This leopard dress stopped me in my tracks, love it! This would come in handy all “fall” in Texas – I’d love to wear it to Austin City Limits in October!
I love the maxi! It would be perfect for my end of Summer work party in a few weeks and I would be be sure to stand out in the crowd, in a good way – perfect for kicking off a new job!
I like the bright sweater dress. I would wear it out to the theater.
The colors on both dresses are gorgeous! My favorite is the green dress, which I would wear with my growing bump! I love incorporating color into my wardrobe, this dress would be a dream come true.
The maxi! So pretty – I would wear it to a wedding!!
I adore the green maxi! I would be thrilled to wear it to my upcoming 28th wedding anniversary celebration!
The sweater dress would be absolutely perfect for motivation to get back to my pre-baby body. Having a baby girl in October and having a hard time remembering what my body used to look like.
The maxi dress… I’d Wear it for my engagement pictures!
I love the green dress! I would wear it to our Charleston vacation or just on date night with the hubby! Such a cute dress!!
That green maxi is amazing! I’d wear it everywhere since I’m 8 weeks pregnant and already showing since it’s baby #2!
I am a longtime reader of your blog, and I often find myself nodding along in agreement with you, particularly when it comes to parenting/parenting with anxiety.
Sadly, I feel particularly connected to your comment about feeling afraid to take your daughter to public places. I have avoided crowds ever since 9/11, but as a teacher and parent of small children I have found myself becoming increasingly terrified to go anywhere at all. I feel like the odds are stacked against me by virtue if working in a school. Lately I have been planning my errands for times that I can go solo, and have literally thought that if there were to be a mass shooting, at least my daughters wouldn’t be there. It is horrifying.
Thank you for your constant honesty, and this gesture of lightness. I especially love the long Lilly Pullitzer dress. My best friend is getting married this spring and has requested a bright/tropical vibe for her bridal party. This dress would be perfect!
Both are absolutely gorgeous! But I would love to be wearing the green dress on my first post baby date with my husband! It’s been a long time in the making as his parents have passed and mine live across the country but in a few weeks they visit and we’re hoping to go on an exact date of our fist date to celebrate our daughter arriving (9 weeks ago now!)
The maxi dress! I unfortunately couldn’t find my size in the store but I would totally wear it on a date night.
The tighter sweater dress is totally my style for the fall! I would wear it to my cousin’s baby shower this fall…she’s having a girl so this is the perfect dress!
I love the green one! I would save it for next spring since I’m due with baby #3 in October!
I love the Lilly maxi dress. I’m pregnant with my second little one and that dress would be perfect for weddings coming up. It’s absolutely beautiful!
I LOVE the green on! I’m a huge Lilly fan, and would love to wear this for a much-needed girls night out! xoxo
I LOVE the green one! I’m a huge Lilly fan, and would love to wear this for a much-needed girls night out! xoxo
The maxi dress for date night
So I think that I would choose the green maxi dress! I love a great sweater dress with a little give and so easy to put together on a work day! But the green maxi dress is my fav by a teeny tiny little bit! I think it is a (so agree with you) a beautiful and unexpected color green and flowiness of it so ethereal and comforting at the same time! Great green dress
I love the green maxi! I would wear it to my granfather’s 90th birthday celebration! His favorite colors are green and blue and he always comments on my “fashion”. He and my grandmother both worked at Sears which was the “bees knees'” back in the day in the midwest. Xo
Oh that maxi is wonderful!! Perfect for my girls trip to Paris in a couple of months! ❤️
Maxi dress is just the best! I’d wear it out to celebrate the boyfriends 40th Birthday. Nothing like bright colors to bring in his 40s!
Loving the green maxi dress! I think it’s perfect for late summer into early fall in DC (still quite hot!), plus I can wear it when I visit my family in Florida this Christmas! Win win. ☺️
I’d wear it to our one year anniversary dinner at Lola 42. I’m two months post partum, so the green dress would hide my tummy:)
I love the sweater dress and would wear it for my 19th wedding anniversary dinner!
I LOVE the maxi dress. I’d wear it on a date night with my husband. We’re both graduate students, so having the time to go out on a date is a rarity.
Love the maxi! I would wear it on a weekend getaway with my husband to OBX.
Love the sweater dress! I think it would be perfect for some upcoming travel this fall with tights and a cute jacket!
These are both amazing but I can’t get over that maxi! I love a leopard print with a twist! I just moved to Stamford, CT from New York City, so my overall wardrobe needs a shift (away from the everything-black, haha!) I would probably wear this one to a happy hour with girl friends, or church and brunch afterwards!
Striped sweater dress! I would wear it to work(as long as it isn’t too short) I am a teacher and I just love the happy color combination. Then out for date night!
LOVE the green maxi dress with the leopards! Such a fun shade of green. I have a family vacation planned in a few months to Hawaii and think it would be perfect for that! Might even have to get my sister the romper version of the print so we could match
The sweater dress would’ve a comfortable pick for me, so if I was lucky enough to be chosen, I think I’d say maxi dress I’m a nurse, I’m a mom and Costco tank tops and scrubs are my life. Your blog has inspired me to be more adventurous and I even copied an outfit with a white tee and the flowy j crew skirt as a go to outfit this summer for the few times I got out. This is so sweet of you to do, and to have the means to do so is amazing. I’m glad you are feeling better. Your little lady is so lucky to have such a great mama.
Congratulations, Carrie. You won! Email me to claim your prize: firstname.lastname@example.org
The green dress is gorgeous! I have so many weddings this fall and it would be perfect for one I’m attending on the Cape. So glad you’re feeling better after the IV scare.
I am obsessed with that green maxi and would wear it to my friend’s engagement party in late September!
I love the sweater dress! I would wear it under my white coat for shifts at the hospital!
I love the green! I have been eyeing it since you posted your photo! I would wear it to my cousin’s wedding in Miami in February. It will be a bittersweet reunion for our family as it will be the first time we have all been together since his sister, my cousin, passed away from brain cancer at age 25. I want to wear something happy to celebrate the occasion!
That leopard romper is my FAVORITE thing Lilly has debuted in forever!!!! You look beyond fab in the maxi version. Lilly’s leopard take is just the best! I’d wear it to the entrepreneurship awards ceremony I’m going to in October at my alma mater!
Both of these dresses would be fabulous for my upcoming vacation to Key West,Florida.
I absolutely love the strip sweater dress! I would wear it to my moms night out in October, we are going to see Cat & Nat in Jacksonville FL!
This is the perfect transitional dress for this Florida girl!
I am obsessed with the green one for myself however I would love to win for a friend. She just had her second child and I think deserves a beautiful gift
Love the green dress and I would wear it to my cousins wedding this fall! Love Lilly!
I absolutely love the turquoise dress! I’d wear it on a date with my long-distance boyfriend (he’s in Philly and I’m in NYC, so I guess “medium-distance haha) the next time I visit! He loves going on picnics, but I often find it hard to find long enough dresses to 1) sit on a blanket on the ground and play bananagrams with him in the park , AND 2) that I still feel super cute in both in the summer and fall!
Thanks for sharing about everything you’re going through and keeping it real 24/7! We’re all in it and feeling it together, and it’s hard to keep that in mind sometimes.
My favorite is the Maxi! I love Lily and would wear it to lunch/brunch with my friends. I need brunch days with my friends to keep me sane
The green dress is lovely, I would wear it for work. I teach at a university.
I would wear the dress to the many rehearsal dinners I have this fall! Being a bridesmaid in a wedding is wonderful (love supporting my friends on their big day), but the travel, gifts, and dresses are expensive–going to take a toll on my fall wardrobe! You look amazing in both.
I would wear the sweater dress to teach, bright colors make the learning more fun!
Love the maxi dress! I would absolutely wear it out for drinks on the cape.
I would wear the first dress on a date night! I’ve just lost over 30 pounds by learning to eat healthy and do workouts from YouTube and the ones posted in your other blog posts. Thank you for sharing!
I absolutely LOVE the green maxi dress! I’d definitely wear it out on a date or out for my birthday dinner coming up so soon in September!
Lilly is such a great brand and I tend to snatch up items at resale shops because sometimes full price Lilly is too much. I would wear the both dresses to school (I teach high school kiddos) and the short one with tights and tall brown boots
What a thoughtful gesture! We definitely all need a little Lilly in our lives, especially with everything going on in the world right now. I absolutely love the pink sweater dress. I would wear it on a date with my husband! I just had baby # 2 and it would feel so nice to have an updated piece in my wardrobe!!
The sweater dress! ❤️ The colors! I would wear it to work or just out and about in the weekends!
Love the green dress! Going through a bit of a personal style revamp and have recently fallen in love with The Lilly pieces . Love seeing how you style and incorporate them into everyday life and events! I would totally wear this for an upcoming anniversary trip! Thanks for sharing your style and glimpses into your world!
I would choose the blue and pink sweater dress because I could style it with boots or a vest, fun necklaces, etc. and wear it during three of the four seasons!
I would wear it apple picking and wine tasting on a nice fall day with cute boots or booties (depending on the weather)!
I love them both, but maybe the striped sweater dress.
I love the maxi! I would wear it for a fancy date night out – and possibly a wedding 🙂
Love the beautiful green maxi dress!! Would wear it to my children’s parent socials for their new schools
Love them both! I would definitely wear the green one on our family vacay to Portugal in October.
The sweater dress is probably more my style, but I LOVE them both! Love that you can wear the striped sweater dress just about anywhere—work or a fun night out—and it works no matter what. The leopard one is fabulous and so different! Perfect for a special date night out!
I love the long green leopard dress! I would wear it to a friends wedding in Beaufort S.C. in November! I think it would be perfect for the weather and occasion.
I am in love with the pink one!!!
Love the maxi dress! Would love to wear in Florida in the winter/early spring 🙂
Tough choice! I love the green and would wear it to dinner with my hubby…but I choose the pink because it’s out of my wheel house and that’s what I’m working on! I’d wear it to dinner with friends!
The green leopard maxi! Date night… and probably take with me to Italy in November with the family (first time, eek!)
I love both these dresses but I would have
to go with the second because it looks like something I could wear to work and then transition to going out with my mom friends
for an evening out!
The maxi dress I adore! So gorgeous! I would wear this to a date night with my husband while my parents watch our 6 month old!
In love with the maxi dress! Would definitely wear it on a night out with friends!
Hope you are doing better! ♥️ You are such a good soul and always remember that better things are coming.
I seriously love both the dresses! My husband and I are going away for a night in November….first time in 18 months…..and I would love to wear the green dress to dinner. I loved that dress the moment you posted it on Instagram!
I would wear the maxi to a couple of different things! First would probably be in Atlanta to brunch when visiting my sister! I would also love to bring it to FL when I go visit my grandma at Christmas. Lily dresses and jumpsuits have always been my favorite as they give such a confidence boost! Love your blog!!!
Oooooh LOVE the green maxi! I think I’d have to make a special trip down to Palm Beach with that beauty!
I have a three Month old and my husband and i are planning to go to the beach for our first get away this fall! I would definitely where the leopard dress and feel like a roaring cheetah on the prowl again! Ready to pounce on some good times “moms gone wild style!” The emerald green color is my absolute favorite!
I could also “wear” this dress and type messages Instead of using voice text so that I don’t post “where” on giveaway entries – curse of my southern accent ♀️
I would love to wear the green maxi dress in my maternity photoshoot!
Love that Lilly dress! And I would wear it on my honeymoon in a month to the Canary Islands!
I love love love the maxi dress. I would wear it to the last weekend at the Saratoga race track season or on a fun date night in the city.
I love the pink and blue dress because of how versatile it is! As a teacher and I could wear this to work with a pair of ballet flats. I could also wear it with a cute pair of tennis sneakers on the weekends for a pulled-together mom look!
I love the green patterned one! I work in the art world so it’s usually a lot of black in my day to day wardrobe, as well as that of my colleagues. I love the idea of wearing this fabulous fun dress in the fall to work, as the “season” begins with gallery openings when it’s frankly too hot for black. It seems great for day to night wear. On a personal note I have a wedding at the end of September and this would be the perfect rehearsal dinner look!!
That sweater dress is AMAZING And lets be real, I would probably wear it everywhere
Although I love a good form fitting sweater dress, the leopard green maxi is seriously to die for! I almost bought it last week! I’d totally wear it to a date night with my hubby! I’m 19 months PP and we have yet to have a date night just us two (gone on dates with friends, but not alone). You look fabulous and I hope this week is going better!
I am loving the green maxi! I would wear it to a bridal luncheon that is coming up in September!!
I LOVE the green leopard dress I’d wear it on a date!
One of my New Years resolutions is to wear more color! Mainly inspired by you! Would love to wear these beauties around Charleston, SC (my home!) and wear to weddings this fall! I’m a wedding planner, so this would be so much cuter than my normal plain black dress.
I would wear the green Lily dress to our best friend’s son’s wedding on Martha’s Vineyard! It would be perfect❤️
I’m in LOVE with the Lilly dress! It’s even my favorite color combination. I’d wear on date night, after just having baby #2, a little pick me up might be necessary!
the green dress is stunning! I LOVE the silhouette and wish Lilly would make more like this – it looks so comfortable too! This dress would be perfect worn to brunch with girlfriends, and then a change into flat sandals for family day 🙂
The Form Fitting Sweater Dress I’m a teacher! It’s perfect For School! Thank Goodness Your Ok Such A Scary Experience Bless Your Heart!!
I would wear the Green to the Newport Food and Wine Festival and I would wear the Pink to a spa and shopping day with the girls!
Best of luck with the move, you got this!

Love the pink dress! Looks cute for casual Friday at work or paired with sneakers for brunch on the weekend!

Both are great, but that green leopard is fire!! I would wear it to a romantic dinner with my hubs!!
I love the long maxi dress. It would be perfect for our trip to the Breakers this winter
I would wear the Lilly dress to my friend’s wedding and also to work, why not!?
I absolutely love both of these!! I’d wear both to work. I’m a teacher and am a big fan of wearing bright colors to school
Love the green tiger print dress! Would wear it to a wedding in September!
I love the form fitting sweater dress! I would wear it all fall – perfect for a baby bump.
I mean, how do you choose? Agree managing through anxiety with all of life’s changes and challenges seems to be all encompassing some days.
The pink sweater dress is PERFECT for brightening the mood, running around with my toddler all day and quick to dress up for an evening out afterwards! Would love to win!
Having a baby in a few weeks, I’d wear the maxi dress out to start feeling like myself again! Thanks
I adore that maxi! One of the best prints Lilly has done in ages!!
Wow they’re both so beautiful but the striped dress for me personally is more practical. The striped sweater dress is the perfect teaching dress for fall and even into winter with tights!
I would love the green flowy dress to wear on my next beach vacay. I love the colors of both of them though!
Love the green maxi! Such a fun and different print plus the sleeves/overall cut is so unique for Lilly! I would wear it to my brother’s rehearsal dinner in charleston, SC!

I am obsessed with the maxi and would wear for date night to celebrate our wedding anniversary!
Oh my gosh that maxi is AMAZING! Thank you for doing this giveaway! I would wear the maxi to my niece’s Christening as her god momma. Would be such a beautiful print and the perfect amount of dressed up to share this special day. 🙂
Oh my the IV vitamin drip experience sounds terrifying.
I like the maxi dress.
I like be the green leopard one! I would wear it out on a much needed girls trip! My first one after having my three beautiful babies!

I LOVE the green maxi and could totally see myself wearing it to a friend’s wedding in the fall! Also, thank you for including actionable items in this post to help address global problems. Keep it up!
I absolutely LOVE the green dress with the leopards on it. How stunning! I also love how you styled it with the belt. I would wear this to a special date night, now that we have a baby and having one-on-one time is rarer these days!
The second dress is so pretty. I’d wear it to my birthday brunch next month.
I would wear the green dress to a beautiful wine event put on by Cellar Door Winery in Lincolnville, Maine every July. I have never been to that event but I have always wanted to go. I would definitely want to wear something special to it! If I win this dress I’m buying tickets for my husband and I for next summer!
First of all, love this blog in so many ways! I always look forward to reading it! The Lilly dress is my favorite! I live for color and it is a great transition outfit!
Love them both, but personally I prefer the pink striped sweaterdress for my own wardrobe. I fully support your injection of color for late summer/early Fall! Why should bright colors and fun patterns just be for summer? But it’s still summer, right!?) Great looks as always 🙂
I love the longer one. I have an event at a farm to tanle restaurant on 9-7 that it would be perfect for!!!! You look gorgeous. I too find comfort in pretty things. We need this right now!
Farm to table edited
Maxi dress! I would wear it to a fancy Sunday brunch.

Do I have to choose?! They are both so gorgeous!!
I would wear the green one to Polo for Babies, a polo match that benefits the Cincinnati Childrens Neonatal intensive care unit.
I love both of these dresses. I would love either of them but I would choose the green one. I would wear it on date night, to church, a lunch date, or any other time. I think it will be appropriate for so much.
