Tulle and Tee Shirts

Hey All,

There is something completely whimsical about tulle skirts. I love the airiness and flow of the fabric. I adore the fact that they can be worn casual or formal depending on the pairing. The tulle skirt I am wearing in this picture took me a year to make. It’s not because it was hard to make. It took a year because I put it off while I made different styles of tulle skirts in between. This was the first tulle skirt I attempted to make but I made it a little little different from the others. I took it apart several times before I settled on hand pleating each layer and then finishing it.

Today, I decided to wear my tulle skirt with my favorite simple fitted tee, it reminds me of a ballerina’s outfit, simple and romantic.  I decided to pull it all together with an obi belt and a pair of nude pumps to lengthen my frame.

Thanks again for reading.

XOXO,

Elle

Mixing Textures: Comfy Sweater, Plaid, and Peek-A-Boo Lace

Hey Everyone,

I hope you are having a great weekend.  Lacey details are popping up everywhere and I could not help but bring out some older pieces from my closet. I’ve always loved the look of lace and I was looking forward to it’s big come back. For many years, I have kept some of my favorite lace adorn pieces and was not willing to let them go just yet. I  was very glad to see lace grace the runways in the past couple of seasons and the online catalog pictures of Zara, Topshop, and Asos.

I picked up this lace skirt many years ago in college. I loved the skirt’s crinkled satin look and peek-a-boo lace hemline. I paired this delicate piece with the rigid structure of the plaid shirt and added a soft comfy sweater. I love mixing textures to get a great finished look.  winterwhite

Barely Cropped: Cropped Top and Full Skirt

Hey Everyone,

Hope you had a great weekend. The crop top trend is not going away anytime soon. It looks like it going to take us well into the Spring.  Despite the fact that crop tops are summer staples, it’s still wearable for fall with some considerations, higher necklines and longer sleeves. I like to pair mines with full skirts. If you aren’t one to bear the mid riff, like myself, I like to wear it with a wide belt to cover some skin so that it does not feel so bare. Always keep in mind when wearing something tighter and shorter like the crop top, the outfit counter part needs to be looser and more voluminous.

Thank you again for reading. Hope you learned a couple of tips to wear those crop tops proudly. Take care.

XOXO,
Elle

Hello All,

I hope you are having a great week. Recently, I have been loving midi skirts. I love its classic cut and worry free length. For petite women like myself, sometimes it is harder to wear a midi skirt without feeling a little overwhelmed. I like to find skirts that I can wear high waisted. I also like wearing nude heels with them because it helps to give the illusion of being taller.

How do you wear your midi skirts? Let me know and share your tips.
