How was your weekend ladies? Mine was really fun, and exhausting at the same time. We spent pretty much half of Saturday at a fabric store looking for materials to make a Halloween costume for a pony. In the evening I had a much needed break with mom friends, and Sunday whole day we were at a riding schooling show.

In the morning our daughter rode, and proudly collected a couple ribbons. In the afternoon we dressed up the pony she rode as Mrs. Doubtfire, and they paraded in the Club’s Halloween parade. It would be an understatement to say Mrs. Doubtfire got a few laughs out of the crowd with her plaid skirt, lace shirt, and glasses tied with bead necklaces. 🙂

Lately I’ve been very fond of tulle midi skirts. I’ve been looking for one for a while. My requirements were that it had to be an easy color to pair with my winter closet, and it had to be affordable. I have no problem splurging on classic items like shoes, bags, flattering jeans, or a great coat. The tulle skirt is more of a trendy piece though, and there entered this new super fun store I discovered; Lookbook Store.

I chose the above tulle skirt, along with the Vintage Black Edged Blazer. You can also see some of my other favorite pieces on the board from the online store. Have you spotted the grey shawl knitwear? I think it’s just about awesome, and so in for the season.

Now onto my mission today. I want to convince you that Tulle Skirts can be perfect for day time, and I’ll show you how in two outfits. You can find details of the looks at the end of their last pic.

How to Wear a Tulle Skirt with Lookbook store

Most of you know I am a mom to young kids. Most of my life is running around for various activities which I actually enjoy. I do occasionally have special events, date nights, and formal gatherings I attend of course, however I don’t like waiting for these occasions to wear my fancy pieces. Whatever piece I buy need to be adaptable for day, or night. I also believe a little glam infused in a day look would never hurt a girl. 🙂 I think at this price everyone needs one of these tulle skirts to make their wardrobe a bit more lighthearted.

Outfit 1- Style Tips:

  • For a tulle midi skirt outfit still appropriate for day, I started with a short sleeve, floral print tee. Use otherwise casual tee’s with your special pieces to instantly make the look more approachable.
  • I added the Vintage Black Edged Blazer for a bit of warmth, and to add another layer of texture, and color.
  • The bow belt ties in the girly skirt & the florals together, and defines the waist. With a midi always define your waist not to look frumpy.
  • I chose high heels as with my average height at 5 5′ I need some help with midi skirts. If you are taller you could go with mid heel booties, or even bow flats.

I think Lookbook Store is the best for those pieces that are more seasonal. They may not be pieces you’ll have forever, but the styles are so fresh, fashionable, budget friendly, and perfect to make your seasonal closet current. It’s also a great perk that they have free worldwide shipping. One thing to keep in mind if you are ordering is that, the sizing is different than US sizing. For instance for XS I ordered AU 6 and AU 8. Both fit me great.

Outfit 2 – Style Tips: 

  • Another option with a tulle skirt is matching it with a fitted sweater. Choose one that’ll complement your skirt’s fabric, and that has some interesting details. Mine here has an all lace back, adding to the romantic look of the skirt.
  • Once again I chose a thin belt. It blends in with the color of the skirt, as here I didn’t want my belt to be the main character of the look.
  • Neutral closed toe high heels let the other details shine.
  • A beaded, sequin clutch, and a floral necklace can make more of a statement in the otherwise subdued outfit.

    • Thanks Tatiana. I did wear it daytime with a tee, pumps and leather jacket. I also added a satchel and it worked out great. I didn’t feel overdressed but of course I rather be overdresses than underdressed LOL. Have a lovely Friday dear, XOXO, Elif

  • Darcy

    You look great! Love it with stripes!

  • I really really like the skirt with that sweater! I mean, the sweater itself is gorgeous – the back is so pretty. But it looks even better and more refined with the tulle skirt. Love it!

    • That sweater is definitely in the list of my favorites in my closet ( lace fan here :)) and I thought too the tulle skirt elevated it even more. Thanks Ashley for the sweet comment, and saying hi <3 XOXO, Elif

  • Love it paired with the striped top, so pretty!

  • So lovely! It’s adorable with your striped top!

    • Thanks for stopping by Laura, have a great Friday, XOXO, Elif

  • That is such a feminine and delicate pink skirt. I love the fact that it’s not over the top as some tulle skirts tend to be. Love it with the striped top. ~Cynthia | http://www.myrosecoloredshades.com

    • That’s what I thought of it too Cynthia. Not stiff or super over the top and much more suitable for daytime. Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO, Elif

  • Marianne

    Love this skirt and the lace detail on that striped top is awesome! Great post!
    Marianne

    • Thanks! So happy you like Marianne- tulle is so glam 😉 XOXO, Elif

  • adrianscrazylife

    I love the vintage blazer and the bow belt. I think I would have loved the skirt more if it were a few inches shorter, but it’s a lovely color and a very feminine look.

    • I get what you mean. Midi skirts can be tough. I actually really like this tulle as a longer piece for winter but a shorter knee length version would be cute too. Thanks for stopping by 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • Rachel G

    I’m irresistibly attracted to tulle skirts (and love how you styled this one!) but the only one I’ve ever had the courage to buy is black and knee-length. I’ve found it very useful, though, I wear it frequently!

    • I LOVE anything girly myself 🙂 A knee length black one sounds pretty amazing too!! Thanks Rachel, XOXO, Elif

  • So flirty and feminine. I love it!

  • mommyinsports

    I LOVE this skirt and outfit! I am buying now…THANKS!

    • Isn’t it so pretty? Did you receive it? Would love it if you shared your outfits. <3 XOXO, Elif

  • claugary

    I have been looking for a tulle skirt for a while. I will give a look at this one.

    • I would recommend it. Very comfy, and easy to use compared to other tulle skirts I saw. XOXO, Elif

  • Cute looks. You wear tulle well! I love that gray fit ‘n’ flare blazer you listed. Supercute!

    • Thanks Keisha! The gray blazer is really unique. XOXO, Elif

  • Tine

    Beautiful skirt! I really love that second outfit – it shows more of your shape, so it’s definitely more flattering and glam. And now I’m convinced that I need nude heels – going shopping this weekend <3

    • Thanks Tine. The second outfit is very me. 🙂 Nude heels I definitely recommend, goes with absolutely everything. <3 XOXO, Elif
