Lucky Office Visit: Tristan Prettyman

The quintessential California golden girl, Tristan Prettyman’s vocals can best be described as a mix of “acoustic singer-songwriter, folk and sass.” Her new album Cedar & Gold, set to release September 25, is “like reading a journal,” says the singer. “I want someone to feel like they can connect to it and like they’re reading something and they can feel that within themselves or they can put themselves in that situation.” Admittedly all over the place, Prettyman’s goal for the record was “to put everything I love onto one album.” The result of her heartfelt endeavor is a gritty, honest confession that “no matter how dark a space it enters into, always comes back to find the light.”

It’s clear from her worn-in leather boots, breezy sundress and jumbled mix of jewelry that her bubbly, bohemian style of music extends into her wardrobe. At home in San Diego, where she surfs every day, she tends to be casual. “I’m usually in flip flops and a shift dress or cut-off shorts and tank top.” But with a new album, Prettyman’s playing dress up and making the transition into a more polished, feminine look. “With this record and all the promo we’ve been doing, I’ve definitely stepped up my fashion game a little bit.”

Click through the slideshow to see some of Tristan’s favorite style finds and check out her album Cedar & Gold out September 25.

What She Wore to Lucky

“These are my grandmother’s boots from when she was a nurse in the navy in the '40s. When my grandma passed away, I ended up with them and then just hung on to them. She is a really important part of my life and my inspiration. My dress is Novella Royale by my friend Mary Meyer. And then I have a little vintage belt on that I got in Australia, which has some imprinted flowers. And then this is Paige Denim jean jacket, my go-to denim jacket and then my jewelry is Vanessa Mooney bangles.”
