I'm dreaming of white petticoats and snowflakes

Today I'm wearing my tutu skirt as a petticoat under my dress.
My sis actually came up with this brilliant idea the other day and I really liked it, so I stole it.
I feel like a 5-year old again, I remembered having and loving so many dresses with petticoats as a child! I believe my 5 year old self would have been so pleased with the improvisation:)

And look at the snowflakes on my tights! Aren't they just adorable?
I also tied a bow ribbon around my waist to make the outfit even more kiddie!
"See the pretty snowflakes
Falling from the sky,
On the wall and housetops

Soft and thick they lie"


Though there is no snow or winter where I stay, I'm still really excited for the coming holidays!
It's so near to my bf's coming home day! Can't wait to spend time with him watching some holiday movies. Some of my favourites include Love Actually, The Holiday, The Nightmare before Christmas, and Home Alone.
What do you think I should add to the list

p.s. Kathryn from Be In Style was so kind to share with me about her style blog. If you're looking for some glamorous holiday makeup and clothing tips, do head down there to check out their latest posts!!

It looks fantastic with the edge peeking out at the bottom. Kudos to your sister. :)

Diane said...

Hy! What a delicate look. I love it, it's so pure and playful in the same time!

My fav Christmas movie forever and ever s Home Alone, I think it just represents the way our generation is spending Christmas, with the problems, the happiness, the family issues, etc. So i don't know what to recommend, but "Grinch" is also super cool.

kiss and enjoy!

I love your blog full of charming little things so adorable! And about the lipstick I use Maybelline very inexpensive $7-8 bucks for each color I mix two colors witch are “Plum Perfect” and “True Red” they create the most special color ever! I really love the color I haven’t found a color that matches what both of these colors create. Thank you so much for your comment in my blog! I love your blog officially a follower! Take care and I hope you like the lipstick!

I adore this outfit so much! It has all my favorite elements- gingham, ribbon, and girlish touches. And I'm so happy you get to spend time with your boyfriend soon =))) Love Actually is one of my favorites.

Ooh also I noticed in your profile section you love Anne of Green Gables and "anything Jane Austen really." I think I have found my kindred spirit in the book world =) Those books are definitely among my absolute favorites!

Panty Buns said...

The ruffled hem of your white tutu skirt sowing underneath that outfit looks very pretty. It had never occurred to me to wear the somewhat similar looking tiered white petticoat in the photograph in my most recent post on Lady Gaga underneath a dress or skirt with the ruffled chiffon showing, but I like the idea. Do you own any Hanky Panky brand petticoats? The snowflakes on your white tights and the bow ribbon around your waist do look adorable. I'll have to check out Katherine's Be In Style blog.
