The Charlotte Uniform (Lilly Pulitzer #3)

Happy Monday, lovies! I'm back with another Lilly post. While I was in the store, the girls told me about "the Charlotte uniform" which consists of boots, skinnies, a cute top and jacket or cardigan. Well, I've been wearing the Charlotte uniform for years now and didn't know it (and to think that as a kid, I hated wearing a uniform to school!). I just can't get enough of this look, especially in Lilly's bright colors and prints. This is one uniform I'll be donning over and over throughout the season.

Yes, my mom Carla even got in on the fun! One thing I love about Lilly Pulitzer's line is that they're multi-generational... meaning that these clothes are made for women of all ages. My mom and I even fell in love with the same dress while we were there. Guess who ended up winning the battle and taking it home with her? 
(Hint, it wasn't me!) 

I just love this dress on her!

Hopeless Romantic Necklace in "Oyster"
