Shabby Apple Tulle Skirt




I hope everyone had a happy 4th! I am really excited to share these photos that my friend Blake shot last week at the Rose Gardens by Lake Harriet. If you’ve never been there, and you live in Minneapolis – it’s a must see/go place this summer.

The skirt is from Shabby Apple, and it’s the kind of tulle skirt I’ve always wanted to have. I had a really hard time deciding between the lengths, but went for the maxi. It is so unique and special and makes me feel, well, like a princess.

I paired it with a few of my favorite pieces, like the graphic Tee from Minneapolis Institute of Art, and two of my button downs. The skirt calls for heels and fancy necklaces, as well as red lipstick and a lot of smiles.

A few of my friends, my husband and I are starting Whole30 tomorrow! So stay tuned for updates, and some delicious recipes! Meanwhile, twirl!

    I love the way you styled this down a little, with a t-shirt and buttondown shirts. So pretty but functional, which kinda makes me want to get one of these skirts now, haha!

    It’s very Carrie Bradshaw- I can see how it could make one feel like a princess, it’s gorgeous. I love Shabby Apple, they have the best vintage inspired pieces.

    • Thanks Megan, it’s day one today and so far so good! I’m okay as long as I can have coffee πŸ˜‰

      Thank you Megan! We were going to start in August too, but changed our mind last minute! Day 1 is great so far! As long as I can have my coffee I am a happy camper!

      • Megan Carty says:

        Good! Well hope it continues to be smooth sailing for you! πŸ™‚ We move at the end of July to a new apt and figured that it would be a good time to start Whole30 then, when we have a completely empty cupboard/fridge. Looking forward to seeing your fave recipes!
