We Can Make You Blush: The Latest Lela Color Story

Lela BoutiqueComment

From 9-5 to Happy Hour: The Blush Dress
In the store we call this the Magic Dress - it clings where it should cling and hides the things you want to hide! We get it periodically in many colors but when it came in pink I knew I had to feature it on the blog. I paired it with this delightful silk wrap and a pendant necklace from La Vie Parisienne. Ditch the wrap and go for drinks after work!

Formal With Fun Details: The Pleated Blush Top
This flowing, pleated top looks right at home tucked in - though you could also pair it untucked with a pair of tailored black slacks and a statement necklace, too. 

Picnic Perfect Tunic Top
Everything'll be coming up roses when you don this button-down top from Tulip. Delightful details of this particular paring include a contrast print in the collar and back pleat of the shirt and a lace back on the white denim jacket.

Something Subtler: Blush Accessories
Do you prefer your color as an accent rather than the main focus? Well, we've got plenty of pretty pink accessories to choose from if that's the case. 

So? Do we have you thinking pink? Let us know down below or on our Facebook page - we love to hear from you!

Derby Delights: Lela's Last Minute Derby Inspiration

Lela BoutiqueComment

The Kentucky Derby is right around the corner! Keep on reading if you need some outfit inspiration - or if you just appreciate fashion.

First up: this glorious floral frock! It's beautiful on its own but paired with the whimsical hat its even more fun. 

If you truly want to get in the Derby spirit, a statement hat is a must. What better than such a hat in the trendy blush pink? Hit two trends with one stylish stone when you pair it with an off-the-shoulder dress like the white one below.

We also pulled a few outfits together in the store (less official than the photoshoot above but still very fun!)

Are you going to a Derby Party? Maxie's Southern Comfort is having their 10th Annual Derby Day Party for Hunger Relief. The Third Ward's own Iron Horse is having a Talk Derby to Me Event too! What are your plans? Share down below or on our Facebook page.  And if you wear anything from Lela be sure to post it with the tag #shoplela so we can see it and swoon!
