In Love with Briella

Finding the right fit for your body type can be one of the most frustrating experiences. You think something will look great, and then you put it on and the waistline hits in the wrong place, the sleeves hit you wrong, it makes you look too thin, too fat, too young, too old... you name it! So when I find a style that I love, I want it in every color! When I bought my first Lilly Pulitzer Briella dress, I immediately fell in love with the fit. I also love that it is a style that's appropriate for me to teach in, but it's also easy to dress up for weddings, evenings out, etc. I have found Briella to be my go-to dress for all occasions!
My first Briella was in Lucky Charms. I wore it with the green Lilly Pulitzer bow belt and a J.Crew inspired blue floral statement necklace for the wedding of a childhood friend. (My younger brother is pictured here with me!)

Sorry for the poor picture quality, but I wore the same dress to another wedding about 3 months later for one of my coworkers. This time, I just wore the necklace and my Lilly Pulitzer Sophia wedges. I adore the gals I work with!

I made the same dress work for me when it came time for parent/teacher conferences. I paired it with a Lilly Pulitzer Flutter Blue Heidi cardigan, gray leggings, and BCBG western-inspired wedges. And of course my go-to Reece & Blaire bangles and Michael Kors watch.

My second Briella was the Ottoman Stripe Briella purchased in the New Year Cheer sale. I paired it with brown riding boots, gray leggings, and a navy cardigan from New York & Company for school.

This past week, I wore the same Ottoman Striped Briella with a navy Lilly Pulitzer Heidi cardigan and my BCBG Boots- it was warm enough to go without leggings! And of course, my Reece & Blaire stack!
Another New Year Cheer Sale purchase, I wore my Bait & Switch Briella for another evening of parent/teacher conferences a few months ago. Styled with navy Lilly Pulitzer Heidi cardigan, Lilly Pulitzer In a Knot necklace, gray spanx leggings, and BCBG boots.

This last Briella is from the current Spring '14 collection. Blue and white stripes, I recently wore it with a J.Crew denim jacket, black clover necklace from my gals at Mica & Molly's, gray leggings, and BCBG boots.

I'm excited for it to finally be warm enough for me to style Briella in new ways for Spring and Summer. I also have my eyes on this piece of Lilly cuteness from this spring- Briella slightly recut!

How perfect will this be for my cousin's high school graduation in May or a bridal shower for one of my sorority sisters? Oh how I love the Briella dress!
