It’s FINALLY here! The long-awaited Whimsically White Baby Shower is THIS weekend!
All of the plans are in place, guests have RSVP’d, the DIY decor is picture perfect, the baby themed games have been carefully selected and ALL. THE. GIFTS. have been bought and wrapped for this sweet momma and soon-to-arrive nugget.
I have to admit…as much as I love planning events and social gatherings, one of my absolute favorite parts is planning my outfit for the big day. It’s my own little personal reward for all the hard work.
Well, with this all white & gold glam baby shower, I MAY have gone a tad overboard. (She is my best friend after all.) So, I needed to pull off this haute hostess outfit on a budget. Naturally, a Tanger trip was in order.
I found this GORGEOUS pleated skirt from Express Factory Outlet as the base for my shower attire.
I could also go a little longer, with this option, also from Express Factory Outlet.
Pleats are so trendy right now and can be incredibly flattering with their lightweight fabric and movement. Perfect for hosting!
My hostessing fashion rule of thumb is be dressed to impress but still comfortable so you can handle all the necessary responsibilities throughout the event. Come to think of it, this is my motto for most of my on-the-go lifestyle these days.
I also have two shirt/blouse options. I can pair the shorter option with this classic tuxedo tailored blouse that I picked up from Banana Republic Factory Store or go a little looser with the option below.
Love these versatile tops and the best part is that I can wear them with my fave jeans. Everyone should own one (or more) of these tops. You, seriously, can never have too many.
To bring it all together, I’m planning to add some bold accessories from my closet. I saw these strappy, lace-up sandals in the window of Famous Footwear Outlet and just could not pass them up. They were calling me. True story.
If the time calls, I can always slip on these beautiful flats.
I love it when an outfit comes together brilliantly. We will definitely be celebrating this baby in style!
