photo friday: garden party.

The garden party was this past Saturday, and it went really well! It was a good bunch of friends & family, and I think everyone had a good time. I wore this outfit (with a few variations).

I got some gorgeous flowers (including the hydrangeas above) from the local farmer's market, my mom and some friends brought delicious food, and I used a lot of my vintage china that I had collected for our wedding a couple years ago. I hand lettered all of the item labels, using place cards from Paper Source. 

It wasn't a true garden party, more of an English style tea party. Maybe once we have a real garden I'll do another one.

coral + black.

I have had this dress for so long—I think almost six years?

Photos by my husband.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: ASOS, old
Shoes: Steve Madden via DSW

I'm building up quite a daily ring stack lately—I just got this pointed crystal one from a local arts & jewelry shop in Occoquan. Some people don't like to mix metals, but I like mixing gold and silver rings, it adds some character.

black and white casual.

Just a slightly casual work outfit from a few weeks ago.

What I'm wearing:
Blouse: Who What Wear via Target
Skirt: Express, old
Sneakers: Steve Madden via DSW
Pins: These are Things, the Silent Bell

I love this blouse - polka dots and a nice collar! Since it's neutral, it's perfect for displaying my pins.

classic floral.

So this is basically the outfit I'm planning to wear to the garden party, with some accessory changes.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Amazon
Shoes: DSW

Really simple, but perfect for a little entertaining. This dress comes in about 12 different patterns, and since it's only $30, I've been thinking about getting a second one.

burgundy + sparkles.

This a really simple work outfit I feel like I've been wearing for years in different ways.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: ModCloth (old)
Shoes: Zulily

I've had this dress for so long but it's held up surprisingly well and is easy to wear for multiple seasons.
