May 19, Mother Daughter Tea

One of the traditions of National Charity League is that we have a Mother & Daughter tea every year. It’s a special event in that it’s a great opportunity to get dressed up with your daughter, spend time with friends, celebrate all the accomplishments from the past year and say goodbye to our seniors who are graduating.

I have chosen this cute blue dress to wear to the tea. It’s a super comfy dress in that it is nice and loose in the tummy area and has an elastic waistband- which is always a plus. The cute laser cut lace-like fabric adds interest (see photo below for a better look), the color is a gorgeous deep blue, and the length is appropriate for someone over 40 (one inch shorter and I think it would be too short). My only issue is what shoes to wear? Originally I wanted to wear the pair on the left, but then when I saw the photos, I decided they are a bit clunky and distracting. Instead I will wear these peep toe booties. The color is a little more neutral, and they don’t seem as heavy as the wedge sandals on the left.


Dress is Laundry by Shelli Segal, it’s VERY old, but here is something sort of similar!
A really cute sandal like this would be perfect!
