Ladurée is a French pastry store known around the world for their macarons. These little pastries have been featured in films like Sofia Coppola's MarieAntoinette and TV shows like Gossip Girl. (Fans will know that Ladurée macarons are Blair Waldorf's favorite treat.) Therefore, it's no surprise that they're also known for having very long lines at their stores - one of which just opened here in the states on Madison Avenue in New York City.
For those of us who've yet to visit one of their shops, Laduree has released this video showcasing "The Ladurée Dream" that takes you for a short but magical experience within one of their stores. Fair warning - you might just have a sudden craving for French desserts after viewing.
Even if you haven't been able to try their pastries, Ladurée can actually be used to inspire your everyday outfits! Their dreamy pastel stores and signature mint green color provide the perfect color palette for a sugary sweet, almost Marie Antoinette-esque look.
Below, I've created two outfits inspired by Ladurée's stores and pastries that you can use for ideas to create your own looks.Scroll down to view them all!
For a look that's simple and sweet, wear a sweater in Ladurée's signature mint color with a pair of blush colored jeans. Slip on a pair of neutral ballet flats, wear a layered pearl necklace, and add jeweled drop earrings as pretty accents. A lace bow headband completes the delicate ensemble!
Pretty As A Pastry
Take notes from Ladurée's pretty pastries by wearing a cream lace dress and a pale pink blazer. Pair with metallic flats and a classic faux leather belt. Feminine accessories like a rosette statement necklace and jeweled tier earrings finish off this delectable look!
