Blush Ballerina

When I saw this skirt at L. Mae Boutique, I did a not-so-little happy dance. I have been searching and searching (and searching some more) for an affordable blush ballerina skirt! You won’t even believe me when I tell you how much this oneย is. Go take a look and see for yourself! (It’s sold out now, but it was forty dollars. 4-0.)

A tulle skirt is definitely on the girly side. And even for me (an overly girly dresser at times), this skirt needed to be paired with something a bit more androgynous on top. Meet my new bejeweled chambray shirt. Ya know, because I really needed another one. #rollyoureyes

    I have been searching for a tulle skirt for what feels like forever. I even purchased one online that I ended up hating. I just might have to look into this one! It is so lovely, and I like that it’s not overly-voluminous.

    Super cute! I love a good tulle skirt. Change chambray for grey cotton and we’ve basically styled the same outfit ๐Ÿ™‚

    I picked up a black tulle skirt a while ago, and I keep putting it on, but I just don’t love it with anything. Definitely checking out this gorgeous number!

    I am loving these tulle skirts but I haven’t figured out how to make it work for me yet. Yours looks perfect!

    I’ve been searching for an affordable one too? Did it fit true to size? They only have three size options, and I’m worried about that…

    oh my word. I want this outfit. There, I said it. It’s far too light and fluffly for my all-black wardrobe, but it would be nice to mix it up a bit from time to time!

    I’ve been back and forth on the bejeweled chambray, but now I’m officially sold! The price of that skirt is unbeatable. I mean, you pretty much have to get it at that price!

    SO cute! I LOVE ballerina skirts and this one is fantastic-it’s subtle and doesn’t look at all costume-y. I have the same shirt but haven’t worn it yet-I’m excited to now, you’ve inspired me ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love tulle skirts too! I got myself an affordable one by buying materials and heading to my grandma’s house. I tried to learn how to sew, but mostly I stared in awe while she worked. So wish I knew how though!
