Snowy Whites

So, yes, today's look is COMPLETELY impractical for the weather...and, to be honest, it's really not the most practical outfit for real life either!
Skirt:  Custom
Here's how much I care about that. 0.

I never really stopped loving to play dress-up, and sometimes it's just fun to put on a big poofy skirt!

I tend to have a more sophisticated sensibility, and I think most of my wardrobe is fairly practical.  But I also love clothes that are romantic.  Tulle skirts are so romantic and fantastical to me.  And, while they aren't the most practical style for most of my life activities, I have made a place for them in my wardrobe.

Blazer:  LOFT Petites
Booties:  Target
With all the snow outside, I was inspired to come up with a winter white look.  I thought of my ivory tulle skirt, and it all started to come together.  This was my first of three tulle skirts, and it definitely packs the most poof! :-D 

I added a nude-to-me slip to work double duty as a tank and threw on an off-white jacquard floral blazer as a finishing touch.

Slip:  The Limited (Available here)
Clutch:  Purchased at Titanic Museum Gift Shop, Branson
The winter whites are accented with a Tree of Life necklace and a floral clutch with wood accents - you know...to help bring in spring! The snow makes for pretty pictures, but I'd just as soon leave the cold to the penguins and polar bears!
Necklace:  Target

Eyeglass frames:  Valentino
I would have loved some strappy gold heels with this look, but since I don't own any, I settled on the sturdier option of my nude-to-me booties.

I love the mix of whites and beige in the look, and it inspired me to play around with the coloring of the pictures to create different effects.
Fun photo shoot, but now I need to figure out some place to wear this! :-D

Do you have any tulle skirts or other impractical pieces in your wardrobe that you just can't live without?
