5 Things Lilly Pulitzer Taught Us About Life

I was so sad to hear of the passing of iconic Palm Beach fashionista, Lilly Pulitzer Rosseau .. The Lilly brand has always been an inspiration to me. I love the simple beginnings (dresses designed to cover up stains while working at a juice stand), the Florida roots, and the amazing print and pattern.

I think moving up north gave me a new appreciation for Lilly too- their saying that Sunshine is a State of Mind couldn't be more true- even if there's snow outside it makes me feel insta-happy seeing the colorful prints and positive outlook!

Lilly taught us how to dress, entertain, and decorate in color, and live life with zest and for that we will never forget her!

Lily Pulitzer's style was visionary. She made Floridian style so fun and ladylike. The colors and prints of her brand are so unique and instantly recognizable. She will definitely be remembered for years to come.
