Fancy Casual for a Bridal Shower

Does anyone else have long debates with themself about what to wear to things like baby showers and bridal showers?  I totally do.  I’ve somehow inferred from magazines and whatnot that bridal showers are occasions you need to dress up for.  A lot.  You know, when you get your fancy on.
WELLLLL, that’s not usually the MO of most showers *I* attend.  While they’re usually pretty darn casual, I don’t want to find myself in that awkward moment that oops, this one wasn’t that casual after all!  So when I’m deciding on an outfit I inevitably enter the struggle of not wanting to be too overdressed or too underdressed.  What to do, what to do?!  Gotta love them first world problems.  But, #thestruggleisreal!
So, I most often aim for a happy medium–fancy casual.  Or casual with a touch of girly.  Whatever you want to call it, it’s this outfit.  

I paired a totally casual top half with a pretty little feminine skirt and pumps for a fancy casual look that I wore to a bridal shower a couple weekends ago.  I’m excited to pair this skirt with other tees for more everyday looks (like the metallic dot tee I ended up keeping), and with some nicer blouses in case I ever do have dressier occasions!

*P.S. The skirt comes in 5 different colors, and you can get 25% off your order until 3/18 with code PMT25!

Anyone else a huge fan of fancy casual?  It’s my safety zone!
