Garden Party!

This outfit represents something old, something new, something pink, but nothing borrowed! I'll start with the something old, which is this Kate Spade skirt from what seems like many, many years ago. (I think it's actually a little under 10 years old.) While I still love Kate Spade and while I occasionally buy some of her clothing and accessories, I feel like the "golden age" of Kate Spade is, sadly, over. Well, at least I have this skirt and some other pieces as a memory of Kate at her peak! The something new is this green and white gingham top, which I actually purchased with the intent of pairing with this Kate Spade skirt. I wasn't sure if the pattern mixing would be too much but I found that with the addition of the white/cream colored belt, it was just the right amount of pattern mixing to add some visual interest to this outfit.  Obviously, the something pink is my pink bag, because I think pink and green work so well together and make for an amazing color combo! I'm always a fan of adding a pop of color to liven up any ensemble!

This outfit makes me feel like I should be going to a summer garden party, or maybe high tea, which is actually what is going on in the background, as this little alley with the wrought iron doors actually houses a tea house. I didn't actually know this was a tea house until recently, even though I have used this location several time for blog photos, but I think I'll have to try it so that I can enjoy some dainty tea sandwiches and scones with this outfit!
