Welcome to the Party

If you are one of the lucky ones to get to go to a warm climate for Christmas, you are faced with a dilemma of how to look festive but not be in heavy plaids and sweaters.  I recently went into Lilly Pulitzer of Easton and tried on some options for a vacation or things that could be worn right here in Columbus.  I remember the first time i went into the store I was absolutely so blown away by the bright, friendly staff that I wanted to actually hang out in there with them longer.  There is a party vibe in ever store that you go into and each one is unique.  The first dress I tried on (and subsequently walked out with, lol)  was this gorgeous Maxi called the Kelsea.  I think this dress will be great for a night out here in town but it would be absolutely perfect for a Christmas Soiree.ColumbusFashionBlogger-KristinTaylor-Shoot3-DiBlasioPhotography-74

I always have to have a pop of color if i wear black, its just me so I grabbed this blackberry bamboo velvet clutch to serve as that.  I also threw on the machine Amber Lynn Sandals.


I really wish I would’ve bought the sweater wrap, I may need to go back and pick it up soon.  Im really considering making a trip up to the store or ordering it online while all the free gifts are happening. Lilly Pulitzer rarely goes on sale but the gift with purchase (as of 12/5 there is a travel set) are fun times to pick up wish list items.  Bonus Hint…. The Columbus Easton Town Center store often has sale racks.

The embroidery detail on this silk maxi is gorgeous and the pictures don’t really do it justice. I love that I can wear this dress to a nice event or to the beach and its very light and easy to pack.

Here is another very festive look I tried on is a dress that I own in white already but any time I see something in this bright pink I have to try it on.  The Caroline Tunic is the most feminine silhouette in my opinion.  I think its a very dressy look that’s easy.


The last dress that I tried on was this more casual look.  I know sometimes when I’m with my kids at an event I want to look pretty but I don’t want anything that will stain easily or feel too dressy so I thought that the Amenna was just that.  The Lileeze ™ fabric is machine washable (👌🏼) and is so comfy but the lace details dress it up enough to wear on a date or to a dinner party.  Its not overly holiday if the bright colors aren’t your jam.  I know sometimes I wear basic pieces from Lily and people have know idea that they do have things that aren’t bright colored.


Gold wedges and a the Positano Straw Tote really make it the perfect beach town look.

Last but certainly not the last thing Ill buy there, I tried on a fun casual warm look that is perfect for those 65 degree days that Disney has in the winter.  I love a good Denim Jacket and this special edition Seaspray Denim Jacket is adorable.  I added an Etta tee and these Kelly Skinny Ankle Pants and kicked back on the couch for a few minutes (don’t worry I quickly went back to shopping). ColumbusFashionBlogger-KristinTaylor-Shoot3-DiBlasioPhotography-95
