Not a lot of you realized this, but my wedding “dress” was actually a shirt + skirt outfit. I was having the hardest time finding a dress with sleeves or fit I liked, but when I found a lace shirt at Express, I knew it was the perfect top for my wedding day. I tried with a couple different skirts, and when I sent the pictures for a couple of friends they were adamant: ditch the shirt and buy an actual dress, this shirt is not “party” enough. And I thought to myself, “not party enough? Oh you just wait and see.” Apparently there’s nothing I like better than a challenge. So I got online and looked for a tea/knee length tulle skirt (I don’t like sewing with tulle, so handmade was out) and found a bunch I liked, but only one that looked just the perfect color and volume for what I had in mind (seller HiddenRoom).
But as fantastic as my dress looked, I can’t just wear this awesome skirt, ONCE, am I right? I searched for some inspiration, and thought the best way to wear this on my day to day was to contrast the softness and cuteness of the tulle with some rock’n’roll! I’ve seen a lot of very cute girl also pairing their tulle skirts with oversized sweaters, but that’s just too much oversize for me. Here’s how I wore it, for a informal photoshoot at the Utah State Capitol, because the cherry blossoms are blooming and it looks amazing (I actually went there the day before and shot some beautiful pictures that you can see here):
