A few pretty things

We find ourselves in strange times when uncertainty seems to rule every aspect of our lives. While we can do frustratingly little to make it better, what we can do is offer a bit of an escape and a look forward to the time when we will once again go out into the world. With that, today we give you a few pretty pieces to ponder as you think about better days ahead.

This cotton, dusty rose top from Cos is a quintessential spring piece. The color is just lovely and it looks amazing with white, denim, black, navy or army green bottoms of any kind. It's a beautiful top on its own or accessorized with a simple necklace around the collar or a pretty earring.

Another perfect spring top from Cos, this white shirt is slightly gathered in the back as a fun surprise. Wear it out or half tucked. We like it with a skinny cropped pant or a trouser. Rolling up the three-quarter sleeve is another chic way to wear it.

Here's a super cute top from G. Label with a beautiful shoulder detail. Lightweight and versatile in black, you can wear this all day long. It's a piece that transitions seamlessly between casual and dressy. Wear it with a black trouser and kitten heel to dinner or with a pair of knee length shorts and Birkenstock sandals during the day.

For a little something extra, check out this year-round leather top from Cos. It's a piece you'll have forever and it's only $350. Jackie Onassis made this neckline famous and it never goes out of style. Done in black leather, the look is super modern and sophisticated.

G. Label makes these easy denim culottes. They're 100% cotton so if you're in between sizes, size up. Wear them with a T shirt or tank, tucked out or in or with any of the tops above. Hem them to ankle length like shown in the photo.

These cute, olive green, stretchy, casual pants are by A.L.C. Great with black, white or denim on top and the perfect length for spring. We like the cuff and pocket details.

Banana Republic makes this easy breezy day dress and it's a home run. Wear it with a sandal or sneaker for running around or put it with a heel for the office or a party. Besides white, it also comes in navy and pinstripe and it's 40% off right now - a total steal.

This beautiful simple dress by G. Label goes from day to night seamlessly. It looks equally great with Birkenstock or strappy sandals. It has the subtle details you would expect from G.Label - high quality fabric, a concealed zipper top and a sleek buckle belt.

The white Birkenstock is a fresh and fun choice. If you haven't tried a pair, they are as comfortable as all the hype. Wear them with navy or black monochromatic outfits so the white pops. They also come in black.

You know we love this Parker Clay backpack - now it comes in a bone color that's just right for summer.
