OOTD - Black Tulle Skirt


With the approach of Valentines Day, there's definitely been an explosion of bright, festive colours not only in stores but also in the blogosphere.  While I'm definitely guilty of abusing any holiday that allows me to pair pink and red together (hello my last post) I totally understand that not everyone is into all of that cutesy stuff.  Enter the black tulle skirt - just enough girly detail to be Valentines Day appropriate but with some edge.  Paired with a black skirt and booties, this tulle number will either make you comfortable dressing for Love Day, or want to audition for the lead in 'Black Swan' - and hey, either is good with me!

Skirt - Cien Boutique, Sweater - Club Monaco, Booties - Le Chateau




These Italian leather, hand-made babies are my recent obsession from Le Chateau and I quite literally can't get enough of these booties. A sleek, pointy toe boot can pair well with everything, and is a great alternative to a pump in the winter months.



What do you guys think? Are you all about that red and pink, or do you prefer the all-black palette for Valentine's Day.  Do you think I have a shot a snagging the lead role in Black Swan?  Let me know!

  3. Such a gorgeous look! I'm not a skirts or dress person at all, but this is fab! The booties are too cute! I can't wait for the snow to clear in Ottawa to bust out something other than my winter boots! xx

  7. Love love love the booties! I may have to snag a pair! Despite my love for all things pink I somehow always end up wearing black for Valentine's Day :-) strange right?!

    1. Yes, definitely snag a pair for yourself Gigi they're incredible - and on sale! I'm exactly the same - I LOVE colour, but can often be found in all-black LOL!

  8. Love the booties and the lace of the skirt! I like colorful outfits, so pink and red would definitely be my choice for my Valentine's Day outfit, but ironically, as a person who loves color, I have mostly black and grey in my closet! Most of my Valentine's Day outfit will be black anyway haha

    1. Thank you Filipa! Call me old fashioned, but I'm so much more comfortable in a skirt than I am pants. So weird right?!
