i feel pretty, oh so pretty

i think i've done a fairly accurate job of expressing my love of skirts, dresses and anything exceptionally girly. the majority of my outfit posts have included one of the two, and a large percentage of my wardrobe includes pieces that are flowery, lacy or made of tulle. so, when i came across this blog post by the lovely and talented laura, or lollipop26 from her glory days of beauty guru-ing, gushing about her new mesh skirt from h&m, i knew i had to have it. not only is is tulle and blush colored, hello two of my favorite things!, it was like the grown up version of a tutu that i've been desperately seeking out. now while it doesn't completely fit the bill in the tutu department, it does manage to put a smile on my face and twirling it mandatory. here are a few different looks i put together for a piece that some may consider hard to style.
cutesy- tucked inlacy tank (Old Navy) long sleeved long cardigan (C&C California) both belted with brown leather (Silpada). light and cute date look. perfect for class. layers are great for fall.
casual- long mint t-shirt scarf (C&C California), same brown leather belt from previous outfit. comfy, casual and simple. great for a breezy sunday, shopping with girlfriends or getting work done in the library.
femme- same lace tank, black mesh collored shirt (Zara). great night look. dressy date. night out with the girls. sexy, while appropriate.

three totally different looks, with one amazing skirt.
