The princess/all-things-girl in me from my childhood has been wanting to try a pink tulle skirt, ever since they became a thing. The only issue I’ve had with them is that they don’t seem very realistic. Either you have to wear heels or be wearing it for some dressy event, but sorry nope. I rarely do either, so that doesn’t work for my life…and that’s why I hadn’t spent money on one, despite the fact that I love having a good girly moment some times.
Well, ya’ll. When I saw this particular Topshop Midi Tulle Skirt, I decided it was time to just do the damn thing. It made the decision easy, too, because it’s not too froofy and it’s a bit more on the edgier side, which bodes well for my relatively casual, every day momiform.
Also, I could see how I might possibly be able to get away with wearing sneakers with it, so…ummm. YES. alltheyes. If you can wear sneakers with it, you don’t hesitate. haha.
Yep, totally my jam. It’s just the right amount of girly and edgy. (okay, no snickering, all of you other Mom Edit contributors. THIS IS EDGE TO ME.)
FYI: The only thing I plan on doing the next time I wear this, is to switch out the top for a black bodysuit. That would be 100x better. The shirt I had on is very cute, but with the skirt it kept bunching up. A bodysuit would remain nice and fitted and I wouldn’t have to worry about tucking it in constantly.
skirt: Topshop Tulle Midi Skirt – great skirt…especially if you prefer a more toned-down tulle situation. See more of my picks below…(I threw in a few non-tulle options, for those of you that prefer not to go that route)
shoes: Van’s Hi Tops – I was surprised by how much I like these, since I don’t like hi top Converse on me…but these are cool! I’m wearing my favorite New Balance with it next time. I’d also wear the sneaks below…
earrings: ASOS…similar pair.
