I’m not much of an event planner, but I do kick it into high gear when I need to (if I do say so myself) and for a co-hostess of a silver anniversary party, you have to look like you’re ready to put on a perfect event. Which is why I am so happy that I had the perfect outfit to wear! This past weekend, my sister and I hosted a beautiful high tea reception for the best parents two young girls could ask for! It was absolutely lovely and such a gorgeous day!
People always seem to struggle with what to wear to major events (weddings, baby showers, etc.). My go-to is to stick to the season, and pick a colour. That in mind, you don’t want to wear the same colour to everything you go to. Mix it up and keep it fun. For this party, I chose to wear one of my favourite dresses by Kate Spade New York.
This is Kate Spade’s “Tanner” dress in navy and white floral. It’s an absolutely gorgeous fit and is the ultimate focus of the ensemble. This is the kind of dress that you don’t want to overpower with too much jewelry, really obnoxious shoes, or any other piece for that matter. It is simple and classic, and doesn’t need anything else to make it look amazing! The only accessory I felt important to include, was the oh-so-essential string of pearls! I paired this dress with a low kitten heel shoe in nude. These shoes are a staple in my wardrobe. Believe it or not, they are from Payless Shoesource. Yes, they are inexpensive, and not the highest quality, but in my opinion, they are replaceable and comfortable to wear (they are Comfort Plus after all).
I wish my curls had held up as well as they did at the beginning of the day. Pictures were taken near the end of the reception, so my curls had fallen, but I guess the soft waves aren’t a huge fault in this overall look. I will definitely be styling this baby again soon, it has now taken the spot of my favourite dress of all time!!
It was an amazing day and high tea and such a tribute to my parent’s beautiful marriage. Happy silver anniversary Mom and Dad!
