Hi friends! I apologize for the gap between my posts. I have a huge event that I lead every year in Boston which take a lot of work so my efforts have mainly gone to seeing it through. My posts should resume to the normal Monday, Wednesday and Friday schedule when I’m done on May 11th. In the meantime, please be patient with me 🙂 I do want to share today’s outfit because I’m so obsessed with it and hope you love it too!
Now that spring seems to be ready to stay in London, I wanted to explore other ways to dress besides the typical spring dresses. I confess I’ve never been much of a tutu girl. I’m 5’10” (178 cm) and the last time I had a tutu, I was 5 years old and was way taller than most of the ballerinas in my class. While they looked so poised and delicate, I felt more like the hippo ballerina in Fantasia! I gave up ballet and tutus all together pretty quickly 🙂
All jokes aside, this Little Mistress Tall Midi Tulle Skirt really made me feel like Carrie Bradshaw with her signature tutu in Sex and the City. First of all, it’s a darker shade of lilac which is so in fashion at the moment. It also pairs well with millennial pink which has been trending for some time. Lastly, it’s really fluffy which makes it easy to play and flirt with. I just couldn’t wait to wear it out! For once the wind in London, which is usually annoying, makes the skirt even prettier. I had to have it! Bonus: it comes in tall and petite.
To keep it classy and very feminine, I decided to match it with a light pink split strap cami top from River Island which was such a smart buy. It’s only 16 pounds and I’ve already paired it with light jeans, my black Balmain blazer for night outs and black shorts too.
To finish off the look, I went with my favorite Jimmy Choo shoes in light pink which blend in well and a black clutch from Prada.
