Looking back at these photos makes me
kind of sad that summer is officially over. My summer glow is fading fast, I’m having to start thinking about holiday travel (wtf), and lazy days spent by the pool seem so long ago. There’s so much to look forward to this fall, but it’s always so bittersweet.
However, I kind of figured out a way to work on the whole tan thing. A few days before these photos were taken, I got my (FIRST EVER) spray tan! I have always been so hesitant because I didn’t want to look orange or fake or anything like that, but my friend Kim convinced me. I went to St. Tropez and got a spray tan with their celebrity tanner, Sophie. The entire experience was unbelievable! Especially now that I’m looking back at these pictures a month later, I think I’m going to be hooked! I didn’t have as many pool/beach weekends as I would have liked this summer, but I had a pretty amazing end-of-summer tan. It was perfect for my birthday weekend in Texas and the start of NYFW.
I wore this outfit to a party right before fashion week and definitely felt like I was channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw. (See my last tulle skirt outfit here.) To keep it more on the casual side, I paired the ballerina skirt with a simple gray tee shirt and a statement necklace. When I think of tulle ballerina skirts, I typically think of the basic blush version so I kind of love how the gray color is a bit more unexpected!
