Style // White Drop Waist Skirt


I have been wanting a drop-waist skirt for some time now and I finally pulled the trigger a month ago when J.Crew was having one of their amazing sales. I'm sure you all have seen images of how to wear this skirt in a multitude of ways, but I wanted to show you how I would dress it up for a date night. I'm not one to lean towards the uber girly side, but I just couldn't help myself with this skirt, along with the blush heels and blush top. I toned it down a little with my navy blue clutch and a chunky, statement earring. It's all about balance and I think I kept the outfit from going too frou frou. But this is definitely hands down one of my favorite looks that I've created with things from my closet (with the exception of the skirt). Gotta love being able to shop in your closet, right?

Weekend Recap // Mermaids & Pirates Birthday Party

photo 1

What a fun weekend! I hope yours was as good as ours. We got some pool time in, along with an outfit photo-shoot (more on that tomorrow!), and attended a pirate & mermaid themed children's birthday party. And what a party it was! Our friend Liisa throws the most amazing birthday parties for her daughters and it's such a treat for us to go and join in on the fun.

You know me, I couldn't help but snap some pics to share with you guys, because Liisa did an amazing job. I really think she should start a side business of event planning because she would be great at it. The next time I need to plan a party, I'm calling her up! Check out the photos below and see what I'm talking about.

Good morning! Hope you guys had a great weekend! We had a great time with our neighbors Saturday night and then had an impromptu picnic at Jonas Green Park on Sunday. There's nothing like dining al fresco right by the water on a beach. Albeit, it's a small beach and not meant for swimming, but we'll take what we can get!

I went into the city the other night for a blogger event at Lincoln Restaurant (a gorgeous space, I would just go there to see the interior again!), and wore this outfit there. It's funny, I always stress myself out with what I'm going to wear to these blogger events, because these girls really know how to dress. But this time around, I told myself not to do that and to dress just the way I want. Not to impress anyone, but to be myself and be comfortable. And I have to say, I really like this outfit a lot.

A lot of times I feel like I need to buy an entire outfit anytime I have an event to go to, but the only new item I picked up for this outfit was the blouse from Marshall's and it was under $20! So that barely counts as buying anything new, right? Everything else was something that I already had in my closet. And that's how it should be, right? Being able to find pieces in your wardrobe that'll work with new items. I kept everything pretty simple and neutral since I wanted the top to be the star of the outfit. And I'm trying to find every excuse to wear white shorts before Summer is over. Does anyone else feel that way too?

What do you guys think of this outfit? Is it something you would wear for a night out or for date night? I might have to wear this the next time Steve and I have date night...
