Style Sunday: The Tutu Skirt

Nothing is more whimsy than the tutu. I am fully aware that I should have hung up these frothy frilly skits a loooong time ago. But, nope. I am, proud to say that I still have two tutu skirts in my wardrobe and still wear than more regularly than I probably should!

I adore the styling of this Midnight Ballerina Skirt, $64.99 from ModCloth – I mean that is a genuine My Little Pony Shirt right there…and those lavender tights – I’m totally bewitched!

Tutu skirts are just as fun to make as they are to wear. You can go off piste on this and design this little number yourself, or check out this Style Sunday Moodboard for Tutu Skirts and release your inner prima ballerina!

    ooh, so pretty! the longer lengths look way more grown up than I was expecting.
