British Pacific Properties invited us for an afternoon-tea inspired lunch at the beautiful Aston Hill residences in West Vancouver recently. The event featured yummy delights curated by local food enthusiast Erin Ireland, and speaker & CEO Narges Nirumvala of ExecutiveSpeak, who share inspiring words about female leaders and the challenges and opportunities we face; it was a wonderful way to spend a Friday afternoon!
The view from the patio was absolutely unreal; we could see a stunning view of Vancouver and the water below. And the patio itself, decorated by Taffete Designs, gave the outing a beautiful touch of summer sophistication. I was in love with the white drapes!! I am 100% trying this when I have a patio like this...one day!
For such a lovely, sophistocated afternoon, I opted for a polished high bun, and crop top - pencil skirt combo. If you're wary of the whole crop top trend, or want to wear it in a more modest setting, a high-neck crop top paired with a high waisted skirt is a great option. You won't show off too much tummy, but the contrast of hip-hugging skirt and looser crop top will define your waist nicely.
