Lilly Pulitzer Windward Dress, Style File Friday

Continuing on in my spring and summer theme for clothing, I’m sharing a light and fun dress that I was able to find for a fantastic price! The Windward Dress is a casual, cotton dress from Lilly Pulitzer that I bought for less than half of the retail price with patience and luck. I’m still working on branching out from my wardrobe of many, many solid neutrals (and stripes that are essentially a neutral…), so Lilly is a perfect infusion of fun and pattern. Although Sea Ruffles (this pattern) is monochromatic, the light blue and white is not at all present in my wardrobe! Look at me, branching out like an adult. This is the story of how I actually found the dress, and my review and thoughts of it!

Somehow I’ve been a Lululemon customer for twelve years (TWELVE??? Where has the time gone?) and I’ve tried a wide range of products, it’s time I share my Lulu brand knowledge with all of you!

In honour of the anniversary of the Royal Wedding tomorrow, today’s Style File Friday post is all about millinery, fascinators, and hats! They are a staple of English fashion and style, and I think it’s something that is really lacking in North America. It really finishes an outfit off, particularly for formal day events. Today I’m going to share two of my favourite pieces of head wear with you!
