A while back, I was invited to a garden party. Spring is certainly the season of these outdoor soirees and I was so excited for warm weather that I immediately accepted the invitation. Unfortunately, I ended up unable to make it to the party, but since I already had my outfit picked out and ready to go, I decided to share it here.

I’m not really a huge fan of crop tops; I don’t like feeling like I constantly need to suck in. Plus I think I’m getting to an age where they’re no longer appropriate, but when they’re paired with something high-waisted, I feel a lot more comfortable. This midi skirt is something I imagine someone else wearing with a blouse tucked into it, but that’s just not my style. I love that it’s a cool faux leather material and since white is my favorite color, I knew I had to have it. But what to wear it with?!

I really wanted to pair it with something bright pink and I drooled over this crop top (which is on sale now…maybe I should get it…), but I couldn’t justify buying it at the time. I recently read a finance book so I’ve been really thoughtful with my money lately. I have a hard time letting go of it for something that won’t either make me more money (ie investing) or make me a better person, like traveling or other special experiences. Anyway, I finally remembered this crop top I have from last year (seen here & here) and thought it would be the perfect match.

I added my baby lilac Chanel and some mini polka dot wedges to reinforce the spring vibes. I put my hair in a braided bun, which you can’t really see but I think it looked cute in person. Aren’t braids the best for spring?

I really like how this look turned out and fingers crossed I get invited to another garden party soon because I have my outfit ready!
