Tulle Skirt Perfection

I think it was Pinterest that made me crush over Olivia Palermo. While she doesn’t take the crown of my number one girl crush (that would be Kate), OP grabs my heart with her wardrobe. The girl’s got great clothes. And an impeccable fashion sense. So it really came as no surprise that Olivia would look flawless on her wedding day…

Mood Board Monday

How was your weekend?! It seems like everyone’s summer plans are in high gear — It certainly is a busy, yet fun time of the year! How about some hot pink for a summer Monday? It definitely is one of my go-to summer colors — and I came up with some chic ways to incorporate the bright hue in your wedding details.

Kate Spade heels. Space 46 tulle skirt (Shower or rehearsal dinner outfit?). Blood orange margaritas as a signature drink (recipe here). Lily Pulitzer lace dress — Great to wear as a wedding guest. Plus, you can rent this dress from Rent The Runway! I think they’re all fun ways to add a pop of color to your wedding without going overboard!

Who needs a hug?! There’s no doubt this photo will induce a series of “aww’s” — But it also reminds me how perfect tulle skirts are for flower girls. Remember this post?! They’re definitely still trending.

Fancy Friday

tulle skirt - mckenna bleu

Happy Friday! It’s always nice when you can say that after 4 days instead of 5, right?! Hope everyone had a nice, short week!

Need some fun Friday reading? I have a few links to share.

1. Seems like the tulle skirt is really making its way into women’s wardrobes (evidence above). I’m loving it! Definitely check out McKenna’s bridal shower post here.

2. Speaking of bridal showers… Remember this post?! Well she’s getting married today! Congrats Melissa!

3. And I just can’t help but share this amazing feature of Work It Out in Well+Good yesterday. Go WiO! Go Hoboken! So proud to be a part of this team!

Enjoy your weekend (let’s not even talk about how it will be June)!

Today’s Tulle

Better late than never right? I was in “get s*it done” mode all day. Feels good to cross some things off the to-do list. But I also discovered photographer Leila Brewster today — and completely fell in love with this photograph. I just had to share! Sometimes the best things come a little later than expected.

Fancy Friday


How was everyone’s week? Can you believe we’re half-way through May already?! Hope you all get through your Friday and have a nice weekend planned!

A few things really caught my eye around the web this week, so I wanted to share – Starting with the above image from the Cinderella-ballet inspired styled shoot featured on Style Me Pretty with the Richmond Ballet! (Things you may not know about me: University of Richmond is my alma mater. So, for many reasons, I absolutely adore this shoot.)

See the whole Richmond Ballet feature here.

It was also Wedding Week on The Everygirl – And I particularly loved this post on affordable bridesmaids dresses.

And just in case you missed it, Erica & Adam’s wedding feature was just too cute.

Mother-of-the-Bride Dresses by BHLDN

There’s been lots of talk about moms this month {here and here}, so I’m giving them a little more love with some mother-of-the-bride dress options. Tulle skirts for mom?! Gorgeous. And now that Anthropologie is opening up BHLDN shops around the country {see NYC’s store here}, it’s easier for moms, wedding guests and yourself (!) to go try on their beautiful collection.

The Sapphire and Anouk dresses are pictured above — Check out their site for more!

Today’s Tulle

tulle skirt from chic wish

Today’s tulle is a flowy tulle maxi from Chic Wish (obviously a Pinterest find). While I could never pull off the bohemian-chic look above, I do think this skirt would be great for a wedding guest paired with a pretty lace top. Especially since maxi dresses are everywhere and make great wedding guest attire. Ditto for prom! Plus, it helps that it’s super cheap – Shop it here.

Fancy Friday


It may be Fancy Friday, but it’s also someone’s birthday… this beautiful woman who continues to inspire me every day.

Happy Birthday Mom!!! Thank you for always standing by my side. Wishing you a great sun-filled day – and an even better year ahead! I love you more!

Hope everyone enjoys this first beautiful weekend of May!

Today’s Tulle

I’m constantly seeing gorgeous tulle wedding dresses on Pinterest, but feel they sometimes get lost in the shuffle on there. So I’ve decided to give the tulle the spotlight from time to time on here. Just a little daily dose.

I stumbled upon this sparkling beauty last week – and between the sparkle, tulle and deep-cut back – I just had to share. This gown comes from Cleo & Clementine, a bridal boutique in Phoenix.
