tulle

Skirt- Spoof (Boutique in Toronto); Blazer, Shoes, Belt, Purse & Jewellery- Thrifted; Sparkly Tank- Ann Taylor Loft; Striped Tank- Gap

There's something about tulle that makes me feel like a ballerina and what little girl doesn't fantasize about twirling on her toes? (My dream ended when my ballet teacher's toes were bleeding from her pointe class and I was a soccer girl from then on!)

I bought this skirt in blue (worn like this, this & this) and cream (worn like this) for only $7 each at a small boutique in Toronto called Spoof and whenever I don't know what to wear, I pull one of them on for instant chic (now I'm wishing I had bought one in every colour of the rainbow for a ballerina bonanza!)



I get as excited as a toddler when I see a chipmunk (I'm so used to the cat-sized creatures that are Ontario squirrels, these guys are like a cuter, miniature version!)
Early morning pictures before work are convenient but reveal my ever present under-eye bags and sleepy face!

{A year ago I also wore a cream coloured skirt: source}

  5. I love tulle skirts! I wish I had more of them! I took ballet and dance when I was a kid and totally wanted to be a ballerina until I realized I couldn't eat very much hahaha. Oh food totally won over dance!
