Is there anything more fun than discovering a new line you love? That’s how I felt when I found out about Lela Rose’s new Pearl collection, which started out available only at trunk shows but recently launched an e-commerce site. The clothes are every bit as fabulous as you’d expect from Lela Rose, but with a playful and slightly younger twist that has me coveting practically the entire collection. They were kind enough to send me two looks from their spring collection and I’d be hard-pressed to pick which one I love more!
First up is this navy column dress with floral straps. How perfect is this for spring and summer weddings? (It also comes in white if you’re the bride-to-be!) I’m wearing a sample that I had tailored, but I think I’ll order a size 2 going forward (I’m usually a 0-2 so I’d order up if you’re deciding between two sizes). This is one of those dresses that I’ll find a dozen excuses to wear over the next few months between birthday parties, bridal showers, baby showers, rehearsal dinners, weddings, etc.
It just doesn’t get better than hydrangea blue and navy for summer. (See also: our entire wedding!) It looks like this top is sold out in navy, but it’s still available in this sky blue color that would be darling with white jeans. If you’re married to the idea of navy, this top has the same tie sleeves and would be just as cute tucked into these high-waisted rope belt shorts. Again I’m wearing tailored samples but I think I’d be a 2 in this top and a 0 in the shorts. I can’t wait to wear them both together and as separates this summer on Nantucket!
A few more Pearl by Lela Rose pieces I have my eye on: this eyelet midi dress, this navy ruffle dress, this off the shoulder shirtdress (also in white), and this short sleeve striped top. Take a look and let me know what you think!
