Urban Tropics


Lilly Pulitzer dress, vintage earrings, Ray Ban aviators, Loren Hope Petra cuff, Cynthia Vincent shoes, bag borrowed from Kat (similar here), c/o Sequin bangles, Michael Kors watch

I got this dress in December during a party at the Lilly Pulitzer Madison Avenue store. I remember feeling under the weather because I was just getting over a terrible flu, it was approx 15 degrees outside, and I just wanted something pretty and summery to help me fantasize about the summer months.

Now that fantasy is a reality and I can finally wear this incredibly decadent embellished dress. Although we took these photos in Carl Shurtz park, it felt more like a vacay from the city (hence the Urban Tropics reference). There was a slight breeze, the sun was shining, and I carried a beach bag through the tree lined city oasis.






Shop the look in the Lemon Stripes Store:
Loren Hope Petra Cuff: $68

    Please tell me how you tied this dress. I have the same one and I’ve struggled with how to wear the tie. I’ve even considered a different belt! Help 🙂
