b is for bonnie loves Bliss Tulle

September 26, 2014

Okay, let’s get real for a minute, y’all. We’re at that point in our relationship where that’s okay, right? We’ve been doing this whole writer-reader dynamic long enough that when we get into a little real talk, you can trust it won’t be weird. So, we’re all familiar with the tulle skirt trend that’s swept the blogosphere by now. Admittedly, I was a tad skeptical at first. I didn’t see the practicality in waltzing around town wearing a ballerina-esque skirt. But y’all, I’ve totally changed my tune. To be fair, there isn’t much practicality in wearing a tulle skirt on an average day, and that’s truly part of its charm! There’s something magical about twirling around in layers and layers of feminine, whimsical tulle. As soon as I tried on this stunning custom creation from Bliss Tulle, I knew I’d spend the rest of the fall season devising clever and season appropriate ways to wear this beauty as much as humanly possible. Enter the plaid + tulle combo. Perfect for fall, no?

Now, let’s take a minute to celebrate the fashion maven behind Bliss Tulle. Christine lovingly makes every skirt to order in her New Jersey studio, ensuring each one is truly one-of-a-kind. I’m on the petite side and was concerned the traditional length of the Ashley skirt would be a touch too long for my short legs, so Christine helped me find the perfect length for a flirty yet ladylike feel. Talk about amazing customer service!

Given its classic cream color, this skirt is sure to be a closet staple. It’s surprisingly easy to style, pairing seamlessly with chambray, feminine blouses and even plaid! I even think it would make for a fresh and unique bridal ensemble if paired with a cream lace blouse, nude pumps and a big, fluffy bouquet! Add a little statement necklace and you’re good to go.

With the holidays coming upon us all too quickly, think about adding a tulle skirt to your wardrobe for an effortlessly chic and festive look! I promise you won’t be disappointed.
