Let me say this first! You are never ever too old for a tulle skirt and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! Recently I had another birthday and to celebrate it I went back home to celebrate with friends and family. The party was at YaYa’s Euro Bistro in Chesterfield, Missouri where we had amazing food and service – I just wished it wasn’t so hot in our private room; a heat wave outside wasn’t helping much. I had my family and friends come and help me celebrate – I felt so blessed!
But lets get back to my party look shall we? The skirt was custom made (see details below), the shoes were on sale, the tank top is always at a ridiculously low price, and the clutch was a last minute run to the mall purchase as I forgot to pack the one I had intended on carrying. My nails actually matched the clutch; this was a happy coincidence. I could get used to wearing tulle skirts…
It’s now unofficially the start of summer and we are all ready for warmer weather and what better thing to wear with warm weather than an off shoulder top and white jeans. Off shoulder tops are a great look for the season but they sometimes have a tendency to drift up. This top stays in place very well unless I raise my arms above shoulder height but let’s be honest, haven’t we all worn an item at one time or another that while wearing it we needed to straighten, adjust, smooth or do something like that to it?
A great thing about this top to me is that it is long; I really like that! That means it can be worn comfortably over shorts or jeans – be they high rise or not – half tucked or not tucked at all. I think the tucked look is less casual and a bit sexier.
