My Style: A Princess Skirt

(All photos by my friend Ashley)

Every girl needs a princess skirt, right? A skirt that makes her want to twirl around and wear fancy heels and sparkly jewelry. That's just how this tulle skirt makes me feel! I have been wanting a skirt like this for quite some time. No, it's not incredibly practical, but for certain events, it's perfect. I paired it with this pink ombre blouse (that I've had forever) and my new gold Etta pumps that I scored at the warehouse sale. We went back to our alma mater to take these photos. It really couldn't have been a more perfect day.

I just love that rather than give this skirt a tougher spin you just went all out with pink, sparkle, and gold heels to boot!

LOVE that skirt! I've been looking for a tulle skirt too (for less than $200). I'm in love with the blossom skirt at Shabby Apple--the blush color is just perfect!

I would have to get the "Going to the Chapel" skirt. I have been searching LONG AND HARD for the perfect skirt in cream, and absolutely adore this one. It could be dressed girly OR edgy, which just may make this the perfect skirt.
