pretty things no. 34

Happy Saturday! I’ve been inspired a lot this week by a very ladylike, summer aesthetic so that’s what prompted me to choose these particular pieces for Pretty Things No. 24. Can you tell I’m ready to sip a pink drink on the beach soon?

These square neck tops are popular with French girl icons from Jane Birkin to Jeanne Damas which means it’s the perfect addition to your upcoming summer wardrobe. I love this top from Mara Hoffman would be cute paired with some dark wash, cropped jeans or a cute maxi skirt (see below).

You can’t go wrong with a classic slingback. They’re feminine and timeless and I particularly love when there’s a little extra detail like a bow or the striped element in this pair from Ganni. Plus, pink and red!

As soon as I saw these floral Lizzie Fortunado earrings, I immediately imagined them with a million different outfits with a drink in hand on the beach on Harbour Island.

This dress from the brand Sea is one of the most gorgeous, feminine pieces I’ve seen in such a long time. From the cut to the color, it reminds me of the ‘50s film era, particularly Grace Kelly in Rear Window but with a slightly more spring/summer vibe.

To me, a truly ladylike wardrobe always includes at least one menswear inspired piece, perhaps as an ode to Katharine Hepburn. This silk Tibi blazer is a great choice because the color makes it undeniably feminine. Try it with white cigarette pants or dark wash wide leg jeans.

If you’re looking for a vintage-inspired, super feminine piece, this skirt from Co fits the bill. It’ll be your go-to, easy piece for warm weather. Pair it with a white tee, a square neck blouse, a light wrap sweater, or even your bikini top for the beach.
