oh, shift!

Gabi in the Gabby? You betcha! 

On a brief shopping trip with my mother, we stopped in Lilly Pulitzer and indulged in our favorite print: Jellies Be Jammin. I came home with the Lilly Pulitzer Gabby Shift Dress and my mother purchased a tunic in the same print (It made for some pretty cute mother-daughter pictures if you ask me).

Over the weekend I had two events that required the dress. On Saturday, I donned the dress while taking photos with my senior buds before the went off to prom. They grow up so fast! *wipes tears away* Then yesterday, I attended a bridal shower for my soon-to-be Aunt in the same dress. (Hush, I might be breaking some fashion rules by wearing the dress twice) It was such a fun, busy weekend!

So here, dear readers, is the shift dress, appropriately named the Gabby, on..well..Gabi!

Posing with a senior friend - but I had to cut them out because not every one wants their face all over the internet :)

Le boyfriend and I!

Matching Lilly prints with mi madre!

Also, just a warning. Apparently if you wear the same pattern as your mother, you're setting yourself up to be asked "Is that dress handmade?"

I love the dress so much. It's in a beautiful pattern and the detailing at the chest is gorgeous. Even though I'll be breaking MORE fashion rules, I have two more special occasions I plan on wearing it to in the next month and a half.

Don't tell!

Have a beautiful day,
