Lilly Pulitzer has really outdone itself with their Spring 2016 collection of bright florals and toiles. The first article that caught my eye in the catalog was the beautiful Melody Set, featuring a crop top with wide straps and a high-waisted flare skirt.
The Melody Set is every bit as gorgeous in person as it is in the catalog. The crop top and skirt are both well lined and and made of sturdy but light fabric. The print features palm tress, ocean waves, and beach cottages in a bright, light blue. Don’t be fooled by the pictures online; the color is much more neon than I anticipated. As for fitting, go a size up. After reading reviews on the product page, I decided to order a size up from my usual Lilly size of 00. The size 0 top fit me perfectly (TIP: avoid the”bra top” look of the material being so tight it cups your boobs) but skirt was slightly loose so I took a stitch on one side. Overall, the set is gorgeous and I’m obsessed. You can bet I’ll be wearing it to many a summer party and BBQs this year!
