Lilly Spring 2012 is Here!

10 Feb

Lilly released their 2012 Spring line in late January and I was NOT disappointed! I was happy to see some great nautical striped prints as well as some great bright-colored basics. This was yet another season where it proved difficult to narrow down the selections to my top 5, but after two weeks of pondering (seriously) I have picked the following winners as PreppyHouseWife’s top 5 items from the spring line.

1. Dress to Impress Clutch in Resort White Mariposa. I love everything about this purse and this is definitely my favorite floral print from this season, hands down. The bamboo handles add a little Key West style that I love, and I am always looking for a great printed clutch for date night. My tried and true CK Bradley printed clutch, which has been showing lots of wear and tear, may be replaced this season!

 2. Felicity Dress in Resort White Lady Like Stripe. Hands down the #1 item this spring and those who don’t pre-order will probably miss out. It won’t be available to ship until mid April, but let’s be real I live in CT I prob won’t be wearing a strapless dress before April. The sweetheart neckline is hugely flattering in my opinion, and there is smocking in the back. Not to mention the STRIPES! Ahh we all know I love anything with nautical flair and this dress does not disappoint. Also machine wash!

 3. Mimosa Skirt in Worth Blue Swizzle Stripe. More stripes. I can’t handle it. This skirt is also available in Azalea Pink Swizzle Stripe but the blue won out by a hair. If my husband would let me I would buy both. It appears to have the same cut as the cissy skirt I purchased from resort 2012, but with a shorter hem! Perfect since I am usually getting most items hemmed anyway since I am only 5 foot 2. In love.

4. Worth Straight Jean in Azalea Pink. And Jade Green. And Ginger Orange. These bright jeans are delighting me to death. With stretch denim they will fit all sizes, and to be able to wear obnoxiously bright jeans is one opportunity I won’t pass down. These look like they will become a staple in the PreppyHouseWife home!

 5. Somerset Dress in Hotty Pink. This dress has the same cut as resorts very popular cassie dress, but with fabulous ruffled sleeves. I am a huge fan of ruffles. Like the cassie I see this as being extremely versatile, can go from beach cover up casual, then when paired with my Fit to Be Tied belt in gold and the resort chic wedge, it can also be perfection for date night. I love items with multiple uses!

 Overall I am very impressed with this seasons line! I am also secretly hoping that they will come out with clothing items in the U Gotta Regatta sailboat print later this season that is currently only being shown on the market bag. When asking Lilly’s facebook page about the possibility, they said “maybee;)” so I am hopeful! To round out this season, or for summer to feature sailboat prints I will be beyond excited!! Once again, great job Lilly!
