loving the lilac + lavender… purple is having a major moment

Never did I think I’d be one to love any shade of purple… not sure why, but I’ve never been a fan of it, UNTIL NOW. I’ve mentioned this time and time again, but all the light shades of purple clothing and accessories–including lavender, lilac and orchid–are making a major movement this spring and summer and you’re going to see them EVERYWHERE. From stylish dresses + separates all the way to shoes and accessories, these flattering hues exude all the feminine pretty us ladies love to sport on the regular!

First up, this Olivet Stretch Midi Dress from Lilly Pulitzer. Hello gorgeous! I love the fit-and-flare silhouette of this midi style with its all over gingham-style print that is crafted in a subtle poplin stretch fabric. It was made for derby days, afternoon weddings, spring soirees and I’m here for it! Just be sure to note the gorgeous smocked design, little lace details throughout and of course the pockets, too! This stunner runs TTS and I am wearing a size 0.
