I bought this white pencil skirt a few months ago and it’s quickly become my go-to piece when I need to throw on something for a meeting, formal brunch or event. It’s such a flattering item and can be paired with a button down like I did here, a sweater, a bodysuit, or a flowy silk blouse. I love the subtle button details down the side. It’s sadly sold out, but this one and this one are almost identical and super reasonable.
I tied this blue and white stripe button down up to make the look more playful and less corporate. I love a classic button down and tying it at the waist completely changes the vibe. A few other button downs I have my eye on are this one, this one and this one. Rails makes such great button downs. I have a ton of their plaid shirts and always pair them with my Cuyana sweatpants on the weekends.
I had the best weekend celebrating my sister at her bridal shower. We rented a room at Cecconi’s in Dumbo and had 20 of her friends and family gather for a beautiful afternoon! The food, service, weather, and decor was IMPECCABLE. I can’t recommend it enough if you’re looking for a new, fun brunch spot – or event space! I’m gearing up for my sister’s bachelorette party next month and getting so excited about all of the activities and goodie bags. I’ll be doing a full blog post on the prep and tips on how to plan one. If you have any games or goodies you recommend I would love to hear them!
