30 Plus Style "The TuTu Skirt"


Blazer-Macys, Tank & Necklace-Forever 21, Skirt-DIY, Shoes-Khol's, Bag-Tano, Bracelets-Ashley Stewart



It is time for part two of the 30 Plus Style Challenge and for this edition we are all presenting our take on the tutu skirt. I believe that absolutely every wardrobe should have some element of whimsy in it. The tutu skirt is most definitely a way to add whimsy to every wardrobe. They can be dressed up, dressed down, styled preppy or punked out.

I wanted to go with a more classic feel adding girly touches like sparkly jewelry, pair of neon pink pumps and a blazer. For the longest I wanted to take pictures under Birmingham’s beloved light bridges and I thought this look was the perfect opportunity to do so. It added that additional touch of whimsy that made me so excited!!!

On a side note there is a slight story behind this skirt. I ordered one and it was horrific so I quickly ordered another but I was sad to find out it wouldn’t be here until after the challenge. I so didn’t know what to do, but my friend and fellow blogger Pepper Martin came to my rescue!!! She made this tutu skirt and I totally loved it! I swear I am more and more thankful for the wonderful women that I surround myself!!! Thanks Pepper!

So how do you feel about the tutu skirt? Yay or nay? Check out my other fellow 30 Plus Style Bloggers to see their take on this challenge:  Joi from In My Joi,  Delilah from Pumps and Studz, Georgette fromGrown and Curvy Woman, Pepper from Pretty Plus Pep and Nefferth from Mode_Plus.
