Timeless Tulle Skirt

Tulle isn’t just for graceful ballerinas. It’s also one of this season’s hottest trends, and looks especially pretty as a midi-length skirt.

Fashion blogger Vale fell in love with this delicate mint color and now finds that this tulle skirt is one of her favorite spring pieces. It’s romantic, nostalgic and quite girly, which makes Vale feel a bit like she’s playing dress-up.

In fact, when Vale wore this skirt, she had so many compliments from adults and children too, that it made her feel like she was living a fairytale.

Vale likes to pair her vintage-inspired, tulle skirt with this ladylike color block bag, colorful pumps that play off the mint color of the skirt, and this artsy statement necklace.

This is one dreamy color palette and a beautiful way to wear this spring’s pastels! Don’t miss more of Vale’s inspiring fashion sense and her life in Italy at her blog Fashion and Cookies.

Mixing prints is modern and a creative way to dress.

The Spotted Skirt

Half-way across the world in Alaska, there’s Nicole wearing this smart pleated black and white polka dot skirt.

Typically you’d think of a solid color up top but Nicole has gotten creative and mixed things up adding a floral cardigan. It’s an unexpected pairing  that makes you look twice.

To finish off the look she’s added a pearl statement necklace, thin black leather belt to show off her tiny waist and  some sexy white pumps.

The result is a very ladylike, but fashion forward look that has a lot of fun energy! Be sure to visit Nicole at  High Latitude Style where she blogs about staying stylish in Alaska’s cold temperatures.

Skirts for women over 40

Short skirts for women over 40 work – Monica proves that. If you have the legs, go for it.

Checks, Please!

Do you have an outfit that makes you feel like a million bucks …that once you put it on, you never want to take it off? (I do)

For Monica, that outfit is a navy and white check skirt that she pairs with a matching sleeveless blouse.  Monica says this cute spring outfit she bought at Banana Republic makes her think of sunny picnics in the park.

To give her skirt the attention it deserves, Monica keeps her accessories in the neutral zone with nude gladiator sandals and gold jewelry. I like the nautical feel of this look. It’s so breezy and fresh.

  1. Oh I am adoring how she wore that tulle skirt. I have a gold one. Now to figure out how to sytle it just right!

    • Hi Shelley, Isn’t it gorgeous? Pure fantasy. I think you need to keep the top really simple, like a fitted tee to make the skirt stand out. I think she has done a great job styling it here. Send me a picture when you get your outfit put together. Cheers! Deb

  2. Love the dotted skirt. I’ve seen dotted tulle, too — so pretty!

    I have only been looking at your site for a couple months-some are ok, most are good and others are great. I would recommend co-workers and friends to seek advice from you two.

    I am a 48 yr old woman and need all the help I can get. I have not been able to locate any other web-site that cators to my needs regardless of weight and height.

    Thanks, keep up the good work
