Garden Party Dress

No, I did not go to a garden party in this dress, but I could. I am garden party ready. I’ve just got to find some people who throw said garden parties because Lord knows I’m not going to plan and throw one. I am not and have never been a party planner. Birthday parties are my worst nightmare. I would much rather be a guest than a host which probably says a lot about me. (I don’t like to prepare ahead of time, I ignore all the small details and I hate cleaning up. Yep, my life in a nutshell.)  I also have no garden so this party is terrible already. 
But the outfit I do have, so feel free to invite me to all of your spring parties. I will gladly show up and be the most appropriately dressed guest there. (Actually I will help you clean up. That’s only fair.) 
PS: My favorite denim jacket this spring is 30% off right now at the J.Crew. Use code ‘SALETHERAPY’ at checkout.

  3. I love the uneven hem of this dress! So pretty and so nice that it’s instantly print mixing without even trying!

  25. I think I’m the only person who cannot do the handkerchief hem. It looks cute on everyone I see them on, then I put one on and it looks like I’m missing part of my skirt. Maybe I’m lopsided, lol. Ah well. Since you obviously aren’t cursed like I am, I’ll just admire the cuteness on you.

    A party in a garden is just asking for bee stings. You’re better off doing whatever it is you actually did in this dress.

    Also, I have to say it…I feel like curved stripes below the waist are not the best idea because they create an optical illusion that you are with child. I’m sure it looked better in motion though. That is a criticism of the designer, not of you πŸ™‚

    I have never been to a garden party but would love to attend one too. It will give me reason to shop for a pretty floral dress like yours.
