The prettiest package arrived on my doorstep late last week. In it, a beautifully constructed asymmetrical top in the most beautiful green striped fabric… a sweet gift from the Pearl by Lela Rose team!
I’ll be the first to admit that there hasn’t been much in quarantine to convince me to choose jeans over a big flowy dress, but this pretty blouse did just the thing. I think you’ll agree it was worth it!

I have admired Texas-born designer Lela Rose for years thanks to her colorful, ladylike and classic designs. Her NYFW shows are always unbelievably charming and if you missed her ranch cocktail series, be sure to scroll through her Instagram to get all caught up.
In fact, I nearly chose one of her designs for my wedding gown! (If you’re curious, this gown was from the 2017 spring bridal collection and I do not remember the veil source. You’ll find the her current bridal styles here.)
So, needless to say, unpacking this blouse was a special moment, and instantly brought back that special summer feeling I’ve been missing as of late!
This blouse is just one of many lovely pieces in Lela’s more attainable line, Pearl by Lela Rose. In it, you’ll find the same colorful palettes and feminine silhouettes that define her couture collection, but at a more conservative price point. How gorgeous is this navy eyelet dress?
While there are so many facets of this top to make note of (the perfectly-constructed ruffle, for one!), my favorite detail is the small pearl sewn inconspicuously along the side of the blouse. The sweetest, most special little touch!
