I guess it is my inner (well, and...outer) sorority girl that makes me love Lilly Pulitzer so much. I honestly don't even know how many Lilly dresses I have...I think it has to be over 15! I adore the sunny, positive, upbeat feel of Lilly's patterns and prints. I love Lilly for many of the same reasons I love tennis. I know that may sound strange, but both appeal to anyone age 2 to 92!
Sara Bernard is one of my new Twitter friends (follow her here) and is an assistant tech designer for Lilly! She designs fabulous Lilly pants, shorts, and skirts FOR A LIVING! (UHM...Can you say DREAM JOB!? Jealous!) I recently responded to one of her tweets and expressed my desire to see a line of Lilly workout wear.
As you may remember from a previous post, I have been getting my workout on almost every day in 2010! I thought it would be amazing if I could wear my Lilly at the gym too! I love brightly colored workout wear and almost every piece I own is pink, orange, turquoise, or yellow. Since most women are like me and love to wear bright colors while sweating it out, why not sweat it out with Lilly on!
Here are some of my ideas for a Lilly workout line. I would DIE if some of these ideas came to fruition! (How awesome would that be!?) I even created some names for these pieces for fun! The newest Lilly prints were used for inspiration, enjoy!
Sunnie Tank and Paige Pant
Yellow Spandex Tank with Pink Piping
Foldover Yoga Pant with "Dirty Shirley" Print
Palm tree logo would be on the back!
Jilly Sports Bra
Banded Spandex Sports Bra with "Checking-In" Print
Almost too cute to cover with a shirt!
Printed Cap Sleeve Dri-Fit Shirt with "Coral Me Crazy" Print
Flashy sleeves for a hard-core workout!
Interior Printed Half-Zip with "Shorely Blue Twirly" Print
Fold your sleeves and collar for a HINT of PRINT!
