Saturday Night Pipster

One thing that can be said about good ol' Missouri is that she can't ever make up her mind on the weather! It has been beautiful and in the 70's during the day, but in the evening the temperature has been dropping so low that I was able to find an excuse to wear my new Lilly Pulitzer Pipster sweater dress Saturday night! After an incredibly long work weekend, I ended my work day Saturday at 8 pm and headed straight to a girlfriend's place to change and get ready for a night out on the town with a few friends. Since my work schedule has been shifted to evenings, it's become harder and harder for me to find time with my friends. I'm the last one of the group to still have a retail job, while the rest have transitioned to "real" 5 day a week, 9-5 jobs. So, despite the hard work week, I jumped at the chance to dress up and have some fun!

I couldn't have been happier with how cute my Pipster dress turned out to be. I experimented with the look a bit- with a belt and without. I ended up wearing it with a belt, it helped give me more of a shape that way. As cute as I think the dress is, I'm hopeful that it's only going to look that much better as I continue to drop weight! I'm proud to say I'm down 5 pounds since starting my weight loss mission, and I hope to keep dropping and reach my goal weight within the next few months.

I love the confidence that a cute outfit can instill in a girl. I felt cute, and I think that how you feel about yourself influences how the people you meet perceive you. I was more outgoing throughout the evening, and I had a guy ask for my number for the first time in an embarrassingly long time- talk about a confidence boost! Between wearing my Pipster and having a guy ask for my number, it was a pretty successful evening with my friends!

Without the belt

With the belt! Paired the Lilly Pulitzer Azalea Pink Frilly Ferns Pipster with my Natural Sullivan belt, Michael Kors gold watch, dark brown tights, and camel BCBG boots.

I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend!

  1. You look so cute! I love it both belted and not-belted. Where are your cowboy boots from?

  2. They are BCBG boots I bought at Nordstrom a few years ago! I really want a "real" pair of cowboy boots for my Summer Lilly!

  3. Love this dress on you, Emily!! You made me want it!
