After the announcement of Lilly's After Party Sale which I talked about in yesterdays post I figured there was no better time to share one of my more recent favorite pieces from Lilly (and if you pair attention to yesterday's post you probably saw the giveaway for them too). I love Lilly pieces (did you see my freshman dorm room?) but as I am starting to work towards a wardrobe of professional pieces that can be worn frequently without anyone noticing I've realized that some of my favorite Lilly pieces don't necessarily fit that bill. That doesn't mean I am going to stop purchasing those pieces but it did mean that I was absolutely ecstatic when Lilly released workout shorts. I wear at least one pair of workout shorts a day and couldn't care less about repeating them so purchasing Lilly workout shorts was a guilt free way to add more patterns to my workout wear.
I am a huge fan of nike and lululemon workout shorts so I was very impressed when I could run and exercise comfortably in the athletic shorts Lilly Pulitzer created. Not only can you comfortably workout in these but you'll look cute doing it! The only thing that is a little different about these is they don't have built in shorts liners so if that is a make or break it for you then that is something to keep in mind. I don't really have much of a preference of that and have worn these for a variety of workouts without ever feeling like they are riding up or uncomfortable.
Since the shorts can definitely hold their own I decided to pair mine with a short sleeve athletic top and a fun, equally bright sports bra although I'd definitely have to trade this tee for a tank if I were to workout since it has been far too hot lately for anything else. This is definitely an outfit that you wouldn't feel guilty staying in all day after working out!
