Being a new mom, I rarely get to dress up. Lately wearing anything other than leggings is a good day. Having occasional days where I can feel feminine and sexy are important. I’m trying to find the balance of taking care of baby girl but also of myself and the hubs. This is one of my favorite looks of the year because it was an opportunity for me to go glam.
Like every other 20 or 30 something year old I’ve always been a huge fan of Sex in the City. I admired Carrie Bradshaw and her sense of style. I always craved to be as adventurous as her in regards to her fashion choices. (And who wouldn’t want her shoe collection!) As soon as I came across Shabby Apple and their tulle skirts I knew this was my chance to have my Carrie Bradshaw moment.
I love the femininity of the midi length and the delicate nature of the tulle layers. If I could wear it daily…I would. Initially I was going to pair the skirt with a lace or crop top, and keep the look very elegant. The more I thought about it I realized I needed to put my twist on the skirt. I decided to pair it with an edgier top to give the look some contrast. As a new mom, I’m all about wearing a simple tee. Adding pumps and my Classic flap bag kept a sofistication to the look, and it was perfect for a night on the town.
