Twirl Away in Bliss Tulle

bliss tulle Hayley skirt and Audrey lace top

Happy spring! If you’re an avid follower, then you know that I adore dresses and skirts. Anything flirty, feminine–and usually, the swingier the better. It’s been rainy and cold here in Chicago, but I finally caught a break to take a little twirl in this gorgeous blush pink Hayley tulle skirt courtesy of Bliss Tulle. Pair it with a romantic lace top (also from Bliss Tulle) and you’re all set for a daydream.

Just for fun, here’s a little-known fact about me: I always wanted to be a ballerina growing up. But that never happened, although I did become a competitive salsa dancer for a few years. I miss those dancing days SO MUCH!

I’ve worn several tulle skirts, but this Bliss Tulle skirt is hand constructed with the perfect amount of frothy layers… giving just the right “oomph” to your look. Stay tuned to see another pretty Bliss Tulle skirt which I packed to take with me to the tulip fields of Holland… and trust me that these skirts won’t fall flat and you’re guaranteed to feel like a dainty dancer. What do you think? Come take a twirl with me?

NYC Birthday Getaway + Lookbook

For my 40th birthday, I wanted to celebrate by having a little solo time. So, I booked a trip to New York City, sans kids, sans Giant. And it was fabulous! I needed this getaway to refresh my soul and to live in the moment. I got to catch up with old and new friends over coffee, stayed in a gorgeous Upper West Side apartment (thanks, Cecilia!), snuck in family photo sessions with two of my favorite families from Chicago, saw a Broadway show, and oh hey, even met the gorgeous Caila Quinn for breakfast a couple times. No biggie. Of course, being the foodie that I am, I sought out all the delicious New York food, including breakfast at Balthazar, cronuts at Dominique Ansel Bakery, Charlie Bird for dinner… and much, much more. Check out my lookbook here for what I packed and wore for my New York trip, and scroll down for more detail shots! I can’t wait to come back in September–maybe next time I’ll pack flats with me!
