Fellow tulle lovers, what better time than the holidays (NYE in particular!) to unleash your inner ballerina? Previously I’ve loved pairing tulle with festive plaid (see here) or a fitted sweater, but velvet has won me over this year. This velvet top from JCF runs slim, and looks gorgeous tucked into either flared or pencil style skirts. The top is on crazy sale right now with code OHWHATFUN making it ~ $13 (!!). Unfortunately green is sold out but the indigo is also very pretty (see on me), or the black is a subtle way to do velvet (check out Madewell for a semi similar option still available in green).
I’ve shared a range of tulle options below, or you can try your hand at my DIY tulle skirt tutorial!
– Modcloth tulle skirt (under $40, XXS and up)
– Maison Jules tulle with pearls skirt (under $50, XS and up)
– Brooks brothers dotted tulle skirt (0 and up)
– Halogen midi tulle skirt
I got Nori this little coordinating outfit for our holiday photos, but we never did succeed in getting a family picture together ; ) This little houndstooth cardigan is just darling though and I wish it came in my size (goes up to kids L so should fit a young teen). The skirt was longer than I thought, so would be cuter on babies that could walk. It does have practical bloomer shorts with snaps underneath, which I appreciate!
I wore this outfit for a press event last week celebrating the new “Fondue Express” gondola at the Ocean House hotel. This was one of the most charming pop-ups from the retrofitted ski gondola down to the cozy throws and heated interior. It was my first time ever trying fondue, and we enjoyed learning about this age-old Swiss tradition!
