Went to a Garden Party

A mere four days into summer, and already sales are happening all around us. Two days ago, at Neiman Marcus, I fell in love with this dreamy Aidon Mattox, ankle length skirt. Let this be a lesson,keep an open mind, especially regarding clothes hanging on a hanger. I typically would not be drawn to an ankle length skirt, let alone one with crinoline, but this is special. My attraction to it was instant. Pink is my color and the pink and ivory combination in this full, acetate skirt were definitely singing my song! I must admit, regardless of its location on the sale rack, it would have been coming home with me. However, the already once reduced skirt was now an additional 25% off! Barring any disaster in the dressing room, this was to be mine. I  paired this skirt with a simple ivory cotton and lycra bustier by Sachin and Babi This piece was also on a sale rack with a healthy markdown and additional 25% off. Immediately upon zipping the bustier, I knew the pairing of these two was a hit! This outfit would be perfect for summer weddings, tea parties, and cocktail parties alike! Keeping things simple on my feet, I chose my favorite Chanel flat sandals with the silver C accent. I simply added an engraved 3 inch sterling silver cuff to my everyday jewelry and this outfit was complete.  The cuff makes a statement and was a gift.  It is so universal. Thinking forward to fall, I might even pair the skirt with a crisp white blouse and throw a navy cardigan over my shoulders. With pumps on my feet,  I’d have a completely new look. This skirt can be preppy, classic, romantic and even formal. It’s versatility is such a bonus. A look this good should not be this comfy, but it is! Oh, and did I mention the skirt has hidden pockets…Love.DSC_0153DSC_0186DSC_0160DSC_0171DSC_0166DSC_0187DSC_0176DSC_0193DSC_0195 Top: Sachin and Babi  |  Skirt: Aidon Mattox  |  Sandals: Chanel  | Bracelet: Sterling Silver Cuff
