We’ve brought back our most popular summer shirt from last season. 

The lily is a simple, unassuming flower. It is beautiful, timeless, and a sure sign of summer. A shirt as polished as the flower it is named after, the Lily is classic and refined. We’ve given it a soft-washed finish for easy travel and comfortable feel. This short-sleeved button-up is both solid and light, making it great to wear over jean shorts on your way to the beach or matched with toothpick jeans and a straw hat for après-beach drinks.

This shirt is made from the best linen we could get our hands on. The fabric and silhouette makes The Lily an uncompromising piece for your closet. Be the woman who steals the spotlight wherever your summer travels take you.

Our Lily Story

Every year the lilies are so perfect I can hardly believe
their lapped light crowding the black, mid-summer ponds.
Nobody could count all of them — the muskrats swimming
among the pads and the grasses can reach out
their muscular arms and touch only so many,
they are that rife and wild.
But what in this world is perfect?
I bend closer and see how this one is clearly lopsided —
and that one wears an orange blight —
and this one is a glossy cheek half nibbled away —
and that one is a slumped purse full of its own unstoppable decay.

Still, what I want in my life is to be willing, to be dazzled —
to cast aside the weight of facts and maybe even
to float a little above this difficult world.
I want to believe I am looking into the white fire of a great mystery.
I want to believe that the imperfections are nothing —
that the light is everything — that it is more than the sum
of each flawed blossom rising and falling. And I do.

The Ponds, a poem by Mary Oliver

Customer Reviews

I’ve only worn it a couple of times, but have had loads of compliments and it fits perfectly. To answer your question, I bought after reading about your company on a blog I follow (Erin Boyle’s). I was searching for a white shirt but wanted one that wasn’t see-through (this drives me crazy), and that would wash well. The quality at places I’ve long bought from (like J.Crew) has really gone downhill, and I’m trying to buy fewer, nicer, more ethically-made things.

For me, the button-up is my go-to shirt. Whether I'm in the studio, at a meeting, grabbing coffee, out with friends, it's something that I can always rely on to not only look nice but play the part. It's the perfect mix of business and casual - something that can stay with me (or on me) while I change my settings throughout the day.
