Thursday: The Little Things

Blazer: Limited (similar) | Skirt: eBay | Necklaces: eBay | Bracelets: Ann Taylor, Lauren Ralph Lauren, Nordstrom | Shoes: VC Signature | Coat: Thrifted (similar) | Lipstick: Revlon Matte "In the Red"

It's the little things that make a day great. Wearing a grown-up tutu to work, finding that tube of matte red lipstick that has gone missing for a month (living with a toddler makes lost and found a daily activity), having an awesome husband who woke up early to make me coffee. Life is stressful and busy and crazy... but life is pretty wonderful. I know I seemed pretty melancholy in my last post but I am happy. In fact, lately I have been happier than I have been in a long time. Sometimes bad stuff is a benefit because it better showcases all the blessings currently in your life.

UPDATE: Many have asked for details about this tutu (I also have in cream).  It says it is one size fits most, but I'll admit it's tight on me, a 12/14.  I would say it fits like a 10, but it is an elastic waist.  It's not terribly well crafted - you get what you pay for.  I wear a proper slip under these tutus because the lining is pretty much sheer. This is a good piece to alter to your needs - you could easily snip the waistband open and add an inch or two of elastic and have it fit to a 14.  I have seen other bloggers add additional layers, using this as a base tutu.  Maybe if you're good with sewing you would want to add a proper lining (though you can often find a perfectly good slip at a thrift store or eBay for less than $5).
