A charity luncheon, bridal shower, baby shower or even high tea is the perfect occasion to be a bit more feminine, and I thought this floral a-line skirt paired with an ivory choker blouse fit the bill nicely for a dressy luncheon that I recently attended. Since I’m not the girliest girl, the abstract floral print of the skirt was definitely more up my alley than its traditional counterparts, resulting in a slightly more modern spin on the feminine ensemble. Of course, we’re making the important distinction between “feminine” and “girly” here. You with me?
I’m calling this top a “choker blouse,” because of the mock neck above the keyhole which creates a great choker effect without the moving parts. The blouse was perfect for my luncheon, but is a little low-cut for the office, so I’d recommend pairing the skirt with something more like this blouse when wearing it to work.
This top (and basically anything even tangentially involving chokers) is one of my favorite styles of the season. I can’t wait to rewear it with high-waisted jeans and mini skirts (how dope is this one) for dinner or drinks where I will obviously only allow people to refer to me as “Gigi” (read: We Wore Basically The Same Shirt In The Same Week And Now We’re Besties). I believe the exact blouse I’m wearing is almost sold out, so I’ve linked more blouses below that have a similar vibe all of which come with explicit permission to take on supermodel aliases free of charge.
