Sugar Pavilions


Alexandra Grecco's tulle skirts are the stuff dreams are made of--they're so full and floaty like a pretty pastel confectionery. When Alexandra offer me one to style I replied with an immediate yes and visions of ballet-inspired outfits started dancing in my head. Not every little girl dreams of growing up to be a ballerina, but I must confess to be one of the many females who danced briefly when she was younger and still holds a fondness for the tutus. At first I thought about pairing the skirt with a black bodysuit and ballet flats, but then I decided to play up the soft grey color with a matching sweater which also suits our early spring weather better than a lighter layer. The setting sun caught the outer layers of tulle giving them a beautiful peachy tone which complimented my other accessories in the best way. Anyway, I'm quite over the moon about this perfect little skirt and I can't wait to wear it again and again this spring and summer.

Such a beautiful outfit! Props to whoever photographed because that lighting is so amazing and it just enhances the gorgeousness of this outfit. Tulle is such a statement, especially these full skirts so your casual styling of one really makes me want to get one of my own.
