Summer + Lilly Pulitzer.....some things just go together.

Ever since we lived near Palm Beach,
the land of Lilly Pulitzer,
I've been a fan.
Every year for Easter, I bought matching dresses 
for me and my 2 girls.
And now that one of my daughters hopes to work at Lilly this Fall,
we are once again in full Lilly mode:)
It's just HAPPY...and we like happy stuff! 

Lilly Pulitzer passed away last year,
but she left quite a "colorful" legacy with her beautiful designs.
And she was a fun lady, if the books are accurate, 
and I believe they were.
Speaking of books, if you like Lilly,
you simply must add these two books to your home. 
 Full of stories, fashion, family photos, anecdotes and recipes.......
they're awesome!

Here is an example of a few recipes.......

This smokey mayo looks divine, but we can’t help wanting to add a little slice of avocado. You know how we are about pink and green!
1 cup mayonnaise
2 chipotles in adobe
1 tbsp adobe sauce
1/2 lime, juiced
salt and ground pepper

1/2 to 1 pound ground chuck, 80/20
salt and ground pepper
cheese slices
mini burger buns
Grill and assemble sliders, serve with chipotle mayo, pickles and red onion slices.
2 cups white sugar
9 cups water
2 cups fresh lemon juice
1 cup cranberry juice
In a large pitcher combine all. Stir to dissolve sugar.

See?????  Buy the Books! :)

Then there are her amazing fashions.
Fun, fresh, colorful, feminine, cool.......they're perfect for summer.
Or if you live in the south like I do, they're great year round.

 You just can't be grumpy when you wear cute, happy clothes like these:)

Yep, summer and Lilly just go together.
And as Lilly herself said,
"Wear PINK and make the BOYS Wink" :)


So, what do ya think? Do tell...I'd love to hear it:) Be Happy...
