TULLE | LEATHER

July 25, 2016

DSC03211

Like every other girl out there, when I was little I wanted to be a ballerina. There was just something about that tulle skirt that had me mesmerized with the beauty, softness, and grace that it represented. When I had my own daughters, I immediately bought every tulle skirt and dress out there because what girl doesn’t love tulle?

So when I saw this top from Salient Label, constructed from layers of soft tulle, yet minimal and black, I had to have it. There was no question how I would wear this either because I love the combination of a feminine top like this with something more edgy like leather. The cut of the top is so flattering and makes my shoulders pop like I have some sort of muscle. The flowy bottom makes it perfect so I can still eat and look fabulous. Paired with skinny jeans or a pencil skirt, this outfit deserves to be taken out and shown off!

Not only is this top a fabulous find from Salient Label, all of their clothes are understated and simplistic, yet make a major statement. Each piece of clothing has structure, flow, and grace.

I love this style…strong and feminine! I’m sure you have muscles and the top made them more prominent! Muscles or no muscles…that’s a lovely top!

Arg so cute!! Love the leather pants definitely going to get a pair. i think i would look preggo w/ that top though but I do loooooove a good tulle skirt!

I am obsessed with these leather pants and purchased them last year and wear them ALL the time. I love the moto and zipper detail and since they aren’t real leather they are so affordable too! You so wouldn’t look preggo in this top because it’s still light and airy under the tulle. =)
