pretty things no. 38

Happy Saturday! I’m heading to the farmer’s market in Winter Park this morning to smell the flowers and find some local ingredients for a dessert I’m baking soon. I’m in the full swing of celebrating the spring season and before we know it, we’ll be transitioning into summer. This 38th edition of Pretty Things is all about dusty rose, a color I’m loving for spring that also works well for your summer wardrobe.

This Evi Grintela dress is like my spring fantasies come to life. From the floral toile print to the color and the exaggerated sleeves, this is a piece that makes me want to jet off to Provence with a camera and a tote bag full of flowers. I also love that Net-a-Porter styles the dress with these Rosantica earrings and Ulla Johnson basket bag. Flawless.

Usually, we’re all about sandals for spring and summer, but I love a good block heel ankle boot when the mood calls for it. This pair from Paul Andrew come in the most gorgeous shade of dusty rose with wood detail on the heel.

I’ve been so into wide leg pants lately because there’s something so freeing about not wearing skinny jeans, plus they’re super flattering. This pair of pink cords from Ganni are the perfect thing for spring. I love the idea of pairing it with a floral blouse and nude slides or a white t-shirt and denim jacket.

I just can’t get over round bags! They add such a great pop of visual interest to any outfit just because of the shape alone. This particular bag from Simon Miller is great because it genuinely works for every season.

One thing I love adding to my summer beauty routine is a body oil. The consistency makes more sense in the heat than a cream, plus you can often find ones with shimmer like this one from African Botanics, a clean beauty brand. Their marula body oil is shimmering gold, perfect for that bronzed beach look.

One accessory every girl needs for spring/summer is a great hat like this straw fedora from Rag & Bone that’s the perfect addition to your everyday t-shirt and denim shorts or a beachy maxi dress.
