Backyard Party Dress

June is the season of graduation parties and celebrations, and I had one such grad party to go to myself. I knew I wanted to wear a dress, but it took me hours of debating and trying-on to pick just one for the occasion. I eventually decided on this strapless egg-shell-blue dress that has been an absolute favorite of mine for years. I wanted to wear it in a new fresh way, so I actually stopped en route to the party and bought this white denim jacket to wear with it. 

Truthfully, I have been wanting a white denim jacket all spring, one that is wallet-friendly, and I've had my eye on this one from the Gap. When I heard it was finally in-store at our local Gap Outlet, I knew I had to get it anyway. White denim jackets go with everything and are so cute, and a fresh new spin on the classic jean jacket. 

The seams and patch pockets on this dress create a structured look that I find so beautiful. Adding pale pink jewelry to the minty blue is a sweet pastel duo which is offset by the crisp white jacket. This outfit ended up being the perfect mix of dressy and casual for a backyard graduation party and a fun chance to catch up with friends. 

Dress: old, similar. Jacket: Gap. Bracelets: Urban Peach, TJ Maxx, gift. Pearl necklace: Dogeared. Sandals: Dolce Vita via Saks Off 5th.

Have a great weekend!
