Please Don't Ever Grow Up

You know those days when you're tinkering with an outfit, and suddenly, are hit with inspiration? Then you tinker a little more, and what results is an outfit that is innovative, unique, classy, and simply to die for. That would sum up how I found this look. I love how fun it is and I admit a weakness for fluffy poofy skirts I can spin in.

blouse: Urban Outfitters; vest: NY&Co; sunglasses: Anthropologie; floral skirt: Nordstroms; underneath tulle of skirt: dress up from my basement
Indeed friends, this was one of those outfits. My inspiration struck from the sixties era and other tulle focused pieces I'd seen. Then the epiphany of taking an old tulle skirt from dress up days came and wellah! I put the floral skirt over for a fun and popping pattern, then stuck to neutrals s that the outfit wasn't too overwhelming. The vest is great to accentuate your waist and as seen in the last picture, the blouse can be removed for hotter days.


Fun tidbit-while wearing this in a boutique the store clerk said they had a similar skirt in there for over $250! Mine was under $20! Creativity is fun for your wardrobe and helpful towards your wallet!
May the Prada be with you
