When you’re visiting a place that’s as gorgeous as Key West, you’ve got to have a pretty spectacular vacation wardrobe. Even though Stephanie, Christina, and I brought half of our closets to the Gates Hotel Key West, we knew that we needed to do some serious shopping as soon as we arrived! After all, you just can’t wear any outfit during a once-in-a-lifetime girls trip to the Florida Keys! We wanted our style choices to embody the colorful atmosphere of Key West, so – naturally – we jumped in the car and headed to the closest Lilly Pulitzer store as soon as our bags were unpacked. My girl Lilly always knocks it out of the park with resort wear, so I knew that I could count on her for a fabulous vacation look. As soon as I saw the Lilly Pulitzer Bellina Wrap Dress, I knew I’d found the perfect outfit for my Key West adventures!
SHOP THE LOOK:
Dress: Lilly Pulitzer Bellina Wrap Dress c/o – sold out on Lilly Pulitzer’s website, but it’s still available at Nordstrom and Zappos | Clutch: Lilly Pulitzer Crush Foldover Clutch – sold out on Lilly website, but it’s available at Splash of Pink + there’s a new Lilly clutch that’s very similar here (I just bought this one!) | Sunglasses: Express Angular Retro Sunglasses | Jewelry: Kendra Scott Jana Bracelet, Kendra Scott Elton Bracelet, and Kendra Scott Owen Cocktail Ring | Lips: It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quois Lip Gloss | Nails: OPI Mod About You
When I’m on vacation, I like to spend as much time as possible enjoying the local atmosphere. I’d rather spend an extra hour lounging by the pool than deciding which outfit to wear, so I always opt for easy outfits that require minimal fussing. Thankfully, Stephanie has the same mentality, so it’s an unspoken rule that we will be heading to the nearest Lilly Pulitzer retailer as soon as we reach our destination. After all, who doesn’t want an excuse to do a little vacation shopping? Lilly Pulitzer’s resort wear is perfect for any occasion, and the statement prints allow you to stand out in the crowd!
The Lilly Pulitzer Bellina Wrap Dress couldn’t have been a better fit for our holiday in the sun at the Gates Hotel Key West. The wrap design of my Lilly Pulitzer Bellina Wrap Dress was flattering on my curves, and the soft material was also ultra comfortable in the scorching heat. You ladies know my appreciation of comfortable clothing (a nicer way of saying I live in pajamas), and I give this dress my socially-acceptable pajama stamp of approval! The dress was such a showstopper on its own that it only took me five minutes to finish the look with a cute Lilly clutch, my favorite Kendra Scott jewelry, and my new Express sunglasses! The next time you’re on vacation, try picking up a Lilly Pulitzer dress. You won’t regret it!
