Tulle skirts are all the rage this season. But I get that. What little (or grown-up) girl doesn’t dream of becoming a ballerina? I did and still do, despite my hand-foot coordination resembling a stumbling elephant in a china shop. I couldn’t resist buying a tulle skirt this year. They’re just too cute and make me feel like a princess.
To be honest, I actually bought my tulle skirt for this summer’s Secret Cinema. I dressed up as Baby, so I paired it with a simple white shirt and my retro trainers.
Falling out of love with this skirt is difficult, even when it gets colder. So last weekend, I got some neutral tights to keep me warm and a denim jacket over a simple white tee.
What I love the most about this ASOS tulle skirt are the numerous layers. They are never ending, a layer after a layer. This gives the skirt more volume and also prevents unnecessary Marilyn moments. What skirt wearing girl hasn’t had one of those?
Of course you can make this outfit a lot more elegant, pairing it with a blouse and heels, but I always opt for casual given half a chance.
Being a Londoner and despite having a wardrobe full of heels, I tend to slip my tiny feet into flats more often than not. Buying Superga trainers has probably been one of my best investments. I wear them all the time. They were the shoes you can see in all of my Japan posts. They kept my feet safe walking for miles and now look a bit less white as a result. But they go really well with this tulle skirt and make it look a bit retro while allowing me to trot all over London.
