Goodbye Lilly

Happy Monday, everyone. I'm posting from the Palm Beach area today while visiting family before our cruise in a few days, and I couldn't not post about the passing of Lilly Pulitzer.

Whenever I visit this part of the country, it's almost impossible not to see at least a dozen of Pulitzer's vibrant designs on women of all ages. I wish I could pull this off in LA...

Pulitzer's boarding school pal, Jackie, helped launch the designer's line into the stratosphere, and it's easy to see why: so simple and chic...

A few years back, the Washington Post ran pics of Pullitzer's Palm Beach home. It doesn't get more Palm Beach than this:
