Manicured lawns, bountiful blossoms, afternoons spent outdoors… a spring dream, wouldn’t you say?
With the season in full swing and warm weather here to stay, a garden party would be the perfect way to spend a sun-drenched Saturday. I guarantee that this eye-catching floral maxi will have you feeling garden-party-gorgeous!
The juxtaposition of this easy chambray top and this polished maxi skirt makes for an ensemble that oozes effortless elegance, perfect for a party on the lawn. If a midi is more your speed, this shorter option would be just as beautiful as the botanical maxi I chose. Both skirts are Eliza J designs, and their garments are always impeccably constructed. The fabric of this skirt has a rich weight that feels of the upmost quality, and the pleats are tailored to perfection. Plus, practical pockets are always a perk! We girls love a good pocket, am I right?
For the shoes, I chose to wear my favorite studded gladiators. The manageable 2.4″ block heel won’t sink into the grass like a stiletto and it makes them comfy as a cloud. As a matter of fact, I think they’re the most comfortable sandals in my entire closet! If the hefty price tag is keeping you from taking the plunge and purchasing, check out these more affordable gladiators that are almost identical!
For a hint of iridescence, I pulled out this marvelous mother-of-pearl clutch for an encore. You may recognize it from this previous post. Serpui clutches are always a favorite of mine. This straw version would be lovely with this outfit as well – it’s so spring! And how darling would this watermelon clutch be when paired with some white distressed denim and an off-the-shoulder top?! I need to get my paws on that cutie.
To complete the look, I chose these classic, cat-eye sunnies. The perfect shades are a must for an afternoon in the sun, and these beauties by Le Specs are high-quality and under $75! Le Specs continues to impress me with their wide assortment of affordable sunglesses that are well-crafted & crazy-cute. How amazing are these chic shades?! #wishlisted
Now you’re officially a garden-party-ready gal! Thank you so much for reading. It means the world! xo
