Colors and Prints Are All I Currently Want—This Collection Is One of My Faves

colorful dresses for summer

Anyone who really knows me knows I have a love affair with neutral dressing. I never can say no to a crisp white shirt and typically don't including anything else in my wardrobe—that is until I caught a whiff of Lilly Pulitzer's current collection. These happy pieces have infiltrated my wardrobe and converted me from my neutral-toned ways just in time to lean into all the feel-good, colorful trends that are dominating this summer.

I'm excited that 2021 is all about reemerging and having fun with our looks, especially now that I've opened myself up to adding more color to my wardrobe. I plan on spending the season exuding the energy of Palm Beach, and this collection helps me do just that. Catch me incorporating the retro-ish prints that have been a huge micro-trend this summer through flowy dresses, swim, activewear, and, yes, even accessories.

Dresses

Speaking of retro, crochet is a thing right now, and I'm here for it.

One-shoulder styles are a huge trend for 2021.

This midi-style has just the right amount of color.

Paired with a visor, this look is perfect for the end of summer.

Activewear

Excuse me sneaking a neutral in here, but this set is just too good. The fresh take on all-white feels unexpected and very elevated.

This popover can be worn after a workout or with a pair of jeans.

Catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror when I'm wearing these at yoga is guaranteed to make me smile.

There's a slew of activewear shorts at Lilly Pulitzer, but this on-trend printed version caught my eye.

Swim

Like I said, Palm Beach vibes. I already ordered this suit to arrive before I put my OOO on.

If you don't want to take the full plunge (pun alert!) just yet, opt for just a hint of print with this fun lace-up detail.

It's also extremely chic when worn as a bodysuit with your favorite denim.

This bikini set is a classic colorful option, and I already have it in my cart.

Speaking as a larger-chested person, I'm a big fan of this particular style.

Accessories

Buh-bye—these are chic and stunning, and that's all you need to know.

I will never say no to a gold hoop.

Y2K called. Its power-bead bracelets are back.

Didn't know I was a baseball-cap girl until this very minute.
