Simply Sophisticated Summer 2 : Summer Garden Party Outfit

On April : top: c/o Banana Republic / skirt: c/o Banana Republic / sandals: Stuart Weitzman / bag: Prada optional style here / sunglasses: Celine / bracelet : Charriol / earrings: Swarovski / watch: c/o Daniel Wellington

On Olivia : dress: Gap Kids / shoes: Melissa Shoes / hairclip : Gymboree similar here 

Can you believe it that summer is already about to end?  We still have some super warm days perfect for swimming in the pool and celebrating pool parties, but there are days where a garden party is more suitable for a nice but not sot hot summer weather. For an occasion like that , i like to wear something girly, flowy and ofcourse, ruffles. Ruffles is so in right now. If you have been following me, almost every outfit i wore have some kind of ruffles.

I really love the pairings of this top and skirt from Banana Republic, it is so versatile. It can be a business look, if you pair it with high heels. It can also be a dressy daytime look, if you pair them with strappy flat sandals just like the ones i’m wearing. It is perfect for a daytime parties, a stroll at the park, shopping, vacation or brunch.

Lately, i am obsessed with ruffles skirts and i believe that it will get more and more popular this coming fall. I have my eye on this Light blue stripe ruffle skirt , also perfect for daytime look and this Seaweed assymetrical ruffle pencil skirt, perfect for this coming fall. Although i’m excited for fall fashion, i’m still not ready for fall weather. Summer will always be my favorite season of the year.

Thank you so much for reading and have a great week to you all!
