for this ruby tuesdays we are talking tulle skirts.

i am not a huge fan of the fluffy tutu, but what little girl doesn’t like a tutu? the tulle skirt seems to elevate the tutu to a more sophisticated level. for a family who is really not girly- girly- girly these more streamlined skirts work well for us. not too frou frou while still having fun with the tulle trend.

the tulle skirt is a perfect compromise for us.

Striped Shirt from zara
This shirt is a must have in your daughters wardrobe. it can double as tunic with leggings or be tucked into a skirt like ruby is wearing AND its under $15 bucks AND comes in red, blue and pink. look here for other must haves tees i love.
Tulle skirt from jcrew (old) but similar in link (look below for the best $5 tulle skirt)
leopard shoes from target
denim jacket from gap

poor cracked lips

last summer i happened upon a rack of $5 tulle skirts from target, not on sale, just 5 bucks for the fun of it.  i immediately  liked the neon yellow.

put the frilly tees down and pair it with something simple like a denim shirt or stripes or a twist on the classics like a plaid shirt or graphic tee. i love the juxtaposition of frilly and light mixed with something harder or more structured like a collar shirt.

here ruby is wearing it with this denim vest we made here, plain white tee and target ankle boots.
and the photo girl in me cannot deny how pretty a tulle skirt is in photographs. the light filters through just right and it can add either an edgy look (like this neon one) or a ethereal look like this skirt below from wunway.
