WiW: And Just A Pop of Tulle

And I trimmed back the poof and made the underlayer more trim and hacked off a bunch of extra fabric. Definitely had to take a deep breath and just go for it! My sister thinks it made a big difference!

I think I love this skirt!!!

I am less happy with the top part of this outfit though. It looks too conservative??! I am unsure why. Maybe the colours remind me of ice cream?? Suggestions?? :)

Blazer: RW&CO
Top & Pumps: Le Chateau
Skirt, Belt, Bracelet, Earrings: Anthropologie
Watch: Fossil

    I love the color and cut of the jacket with the skirt. I wouldn't change a thing! I know what you mean, though. I have a hot pink silk shirt--I get a lot of compliments on it, but I feel a little uncomfortable in it.

    I think this looks just fine, Lyn. I don't think this reads conservative.

    great job on the skirt! I like this way better than before :-) not too conservative IMO, but maybe you want a more playful and fun top? or you just could let your hair down?

  • AviaMariah replied 5 years ago

    I like it.  The more conservative top plays off the fun skirt.

  • Eliza replied 5 years ago

    This looks awesome and I admire your vision, as well as your skills in pulling this off.  Love how the jacket offsets the bold pattern and drama of the skirt.  The look does not read conservative to me.

    I love this outfit.  Hot pink worn the way you have it is not conservative.  Dramatic, but just right for you.

    I really love your style. YLF!

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    Beautiful!!  I really love this, an the bright pink keeps in work appropriate without being too conservative.

    Can I put you on my pinboard? I have a special sub-category: Pink for Grownups. You're the poster child for it with this one.

    The hack is A1.

    All the hacking paid off!  I don't see too conservative.  IMO the skirts needs simple, it has ALGO with the bold strips, bold contrast, tulle.  The pink is a great addition to the black/white.

    I didn't see the before post but I love this outfit. I like the gorgeous fullness of he skirt & the graphic pattern contrasted with the more fitting jacket & top. Love the belt too.

    The tulle gives this skirt great poof.  I like the outfit as is, but maybe the black top is throwing you off?  What about swapping for a white one, that will make the entire top half of the outfit a lot "lighter" which will change up the vibe a tad.

    I love the skirt! And your phone case :)

    I don't think this combination is conservative. It's pretty, girly, fun and adorable - which is what your style is all about. Rock on.

    @ Adelfa - Oi, a hot pink silk shirt would be so fabulous! I need to keep my eyes peeled for one - maybe not to wear with my pink blazer, though! :)

    @ Ceit - Thanks :)

    @ Harmonica - I had a hair accident. More or less a hair frustration. There was a knot in it I couldn't get out so I hacked it with scissors. Yeah. No hair down for awhile.... *shifty eyes*

    @ Avia - Thanks! I think this top is rather conservative. Maybe that's the vibe I'm getting.

    @ Eliza - OH, I dunno about skills. It's pretty easy to use this sewing machine. I got it from IKEA and seriously, super easy.

    @ MsMaven, ClaireLouise - Thanks! 

    @ Thistle - One of the other residents wore short shorts today, so I'm pretty sure anything is fair game now! HAHA.

    @ Rachylou - Go ahead if you want! LOL. Lots of adults wear pink, no?

    @ Tracina - it is ALGO, isn't it? Especially with pockets too!

    @ Kiwichik - Thanks; I had misgivings about this belt when I first got it, but then I realized I was just wearing it backwards :p

    @ Lisa - I will definitely try that next time that I wear this skirt - all my light tops without crazy patterns are waiting laundry :) I think a light coloured top may just be what the doctor ordered...

    @ Angie - Thanks! I love this phone case and would cry if it broke :(
