Garden Party Dress

 

IMG_7466

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Just looking at this dress makes me think I ought to be at a garden party. The pink, the blue flowers with the green leaves stemming out as if the dress represents the flowers I would love in a garden.

Today is Friday, so a bit of short and sweet is what I will leave you with. Here in North Carolina where I live, the idea of a garden would be lovely, but not always feasible in the temperatures we endure. So, instead, I wear my Garden Party dress with open toe shoes ad quilted lady-like steel blue Kate Spade bag, that so closely resembles the roses in the dress.

Karina makes this Audrey dress in a retro-style and the fit works with my “inverted triangle shape’ See more on this HERE>

I added touches of green in my earrings, necklace and cardigan, almost as the fresh grass reminds one of spring and gardens. Instead of a garden party, I am much more of a tea party kind of girl! Not the political type I tell you, but the kind with small little sandwiches, delicious teas and shortbread.

I will leave you with this song, as it is the first one that came to mind when writing the post about this vintage-styled dress:

Here are the lyrics:

I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
No one recognized me, I didn’t look the same

But it’s all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so ya got to please yourself..

Isn’t that the truth! So, whether it’s working in your garden, enjoying nature or just the relaxing time of the upcoming weekend, enjoy!

Jess xo

    I love, love, love floral print dresses and this one is so lovely. Got a nice retro vibe to it. I’ve never bought a Karina dress. But I like that classic vintage inspired style and print. Will have to check them out!

    Love that song Jess! And i adore your garden party dress! If you can’t have garden, why not have party with a floral wardrobe of dresses, as you seem to have ! 🙂
    Love the colors on you, and the cardi is a perfect choice, as well as that soft blue bag!
    feel well!

    It’s a gorgeously warm day in London and your dress just fits the bill. Makes me want to go put on my garden party dress too! And I love the vintage style necklace. Has an Art Deco feel about it.

    I’m right there with you on tea parties: I adore a good afternoon tea. In fact, I had one for my hen do – afternoon tea with the girls at The Dorchester Hotel (very swanky) in London overlooking Hyde Park. Happy memories. Thanks for taking me on a stroll down memory lane.

      Oh that sounds wonderful. I would very much enjoy afternoon tea in a London tea room. Sounds like a lovely place. We do not have tea rooms in the South, but I would be the first customer if we did.
      Glad it is a beautiuful day, enjoy your weekend! xx
