Despite my Andover pedigree and a slew of summers in Maine, I’ve never loved Lilly Pulitzer: Her tropical prints are just a little too precious for me. But despite my aversion to Lilly’s beachy style, I’m madly obsessed with her new puffy vest. It fits over sundresses on cool, breezy nights and will work in the fall with thin sweaters and jeans. If you’re already a Lilly fan, you can show off the vest’s trademark tropical lining. Or just zip it up and rest assured that the Hamptons are firmly behind you.
