Like most little girls I was enamored with the ballet and loved all the wonderful costumes that the dancers got to wear. As an adult, my obsession with tulle tutu-esque skirts has yet to disappear and I believe they are a necessary edition to every woman’s wardrobe. Wearing a tulle skirt often goes two ways : you can either look like you’re playing dress up and like a walking cupcake or you can look sophisticated and chic. For me there has always been something wonderfully romantic and elegant about a great tulle skirt and when paired with the right top and accessories the end result is nothing short of fabulous.
Some of my favorite ways of wearing tulle can be seen below:

Hopefully this post will bring out the inner ballerina in you. I know I want to and can’t wait to re-create one of these looks soon.
Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons and for me marks a time of renewal and change. Almost all good things happen in fall : The leaves begin to change colour, school is back in session, the September issue of Vogue is released, and homes begin to smell like apple and pumpkin pie and fall fashion is well, absolutely fabulous.
Since I will be back in school in September I am coveting things that I find will fit my collegiate lifestyle and that will still allow me to look cute, polished, feminine, and put together.
Here are some of the items on my wish list:
1. A great coat or jacket (or perhaps two)
I am a sucker for beautiful outerwear. Often I find an amazing coat really pulls an outfit together and is worth investing in. Two of my favorites so far this season are the Simone Coat from Club Monaco in a luscious shade of pale pink and the very practical and stylish Kasson Parka in Tan from Penfield c/o Madewell (I adore the hint of plaid that peaks through.)
2. Great Leather Boots
I have a slight obsession with black over-the-knee boots and am in love with this pair from Stuart Weitzman.
3. A great bag
Along with outerwear and shoes I will often invest in a great handbag. I thought that this Cambridge Classic Satchel in Oxblood with my initials embossed into it would be the perfect back to school bag. It is the perfect mix of classic preppy cool.
4. A new watch
I already have a watch from Michael Kors but would like something more sophisticated that can be dressed up or down. With it’s red suede strap, white face, and gold plating this watch from Larsson Jennings is sure to do the trick.
5. Macbook Pro
I have had my Macbook Pro for 6 years now and it has survived even the most severe beatings. It still works but has become relatively slow and I feel like I need a more updated version for school.
Hopefully along with being back in School this September, some (or maybe if I’m lucky all) of these items will come into my possession this fall.
