The Challenge
This is such a fun day for me!  I don't usually post on Tuesdays, but this is a special occasion.  Recently, Debbie from Fashion Fairy Dust, did a post wearing her chiffon skirt.  It reminded of this
skirt and that Debbie has a few tulle skirts of her own and styles them so well.  When I asked her if she'd like to double up and join me for a Tulle Skirt Day, her answer was "Yes!"  Soooo, if you haven't been to her blog, yet, hop over there and see how she's styled hers.  You're getting twice as much tulle today!  

The Details
I looked, and looked, and looked at this skirt in the Garnet Hill catalog last winter.  When early spring rolled around and it was in their clearance catalog for under $20, I jumped!  The color is called Fawn, which is a beige/blush.  

Not long ago, Angie at You Look Fab did a post on long jackets over flared skirts.  My long linen jacket was ignored this summer, so when I saw the post, I thought maybe it would work over my new tulle skirt, if the fabrics weren't too mismatched.  The linen jacket is a cocoa brown, so the colors go together well.  

Gladiator sandals, an asymmetric belt, a spiky necklace and leather bracelet (the bracelet and shell are olive green) were added to make the skirt less sweet.  The outfit came together, although if I stand the wrong way, and the jacket flares along with the skirt, I kind of look like "large Marge."  Other than the large Marge part, I think the outfit turned out really well.

The Takeaway
Be sure to try things you think won't, or shouldn't work and see what happens.  Combining what could be a quite dressy skirt with a sportier jacket and accessories that have some edge to them really hits my style sweet spot.  You could copy the long jacket over flared skirt idea and get a completely different look.  Stop over and tell me if you give it a try!

[Edited to add:  Debbie and I got our wires crossed, so her tulle skirt post is not up today. ]
