Latest Lilly Love

The second shipment of Lilly Pulitzer's Fall 2012 collection has just become available online and in stores. This installment includes my favorite print from the Fall line: an adorable elephant print called Kissy Pink Tusk In Sun. Ever since I saw this print in the lookbook earlier in the summer I have been anxious for it to come out. It is not your stereotypical Lilly animal print, rather it is somewhat of a basic geometric print-in that the elephants are the repeating "shapes." However, it is still absolutely precious and the jewel tones are perfect for fall. I hope to eventually add Tusk In Sun to my closet. Here are my favorite items this print is available in:

This is the number one Tusk In Sun item on my wish list. I definitely want to own this top at some point. It is so versatile and can really be worn year-round. During the transitional period between summer and fall it can be worn with skinny jeans and Jacks. Then once it gets cooler add a blue or dark gray cardigan, replace Jacks with cowgirl boots or ballet flats and wear it like that all through fall and winter. Then in the spring and summer it would look super cute with white skinny jeans. (Or if you want to buy this top right now there are currently just under five days left of white jean season).

This simple cotton slub dress with three-quarter sleeves is great to wear during the transitional period between summer and fall. It would look super cute with cowgirl boots. I'm having a hard time visualizing what color tights would look good with this dress and cowgirl boots so it may not be your best option for the cold weather months. Luckily in the South it is frequently warm enough through late October to wear a dress sans tights.

What do y'all think of the Kissy Pink Tusk In Sun print? Have you bought or do you plan to buy anything in this print?
