The Femme Pink Skirt Whitney's Loving in Spite of Herself

Maybe I'm more into pretty things than I thought.

The Summer House has been one of my favorite ethical brands since I first wrote about it last year. In some senses, it's not surprising that the brand would win me over: Its directors are meticulous about sourcing their materials sustainably, they produce everything in a small in-house studio and prioritize quality and affordability. But in terms of aesthetics, it's been a bit more of a surprise how much I've come to love the brand. I would describe the label's vibe as femme, elegantly simple and pretty, none of which are words that come to mind when describing my own style. And yet I somehow find myself returning to The Summer House pieces in my wardrobe over and over.

Knowledge of the actual wearability is part of what gets me excited when the brand drops a new collection, and The Summer House's latest edit is no exception. There are a whole host of dresses I'd love to try out, especially some of the perfect-for-work button-ups, but the first thing that really caught my eye was this asymmetrical blush Riva skirt. I'd probably pair mine with the scuffed-up vintage Doc Martens I wear most days and maybe some black mesh to toughen it up a bit, but it would still be the first pink thing I've worn in a long, long time. Get at me, spring.
