The other day I was chatting with Kat from Ginger, Adorned on Twitter. She got this tutu and I mentioned this skirt and she suggested wearing them together… and so I did! Adds some fun volume and I love how it peeks out from under the skirt.  I often get all hot and uncomfortable at social events and decided to prepare accordingly with a short-sleeved top.  Speaking of social events…

Tonight is the opening night party for The Shoe Hive‘s pop-up shop Hive on the Hill at Tabula Rasa on Barracks Row. The event starts at 7pm and there will be drinks, noshes, and tons of gorgeous shoes and accessories. Alison of DC Celine and I are co-hosting and we each made a gift list of some of our favorite pieces from The Shoe Hive. It would be great to see you there!

    WOW, you look marvelous Allison ! I really like the mix you have going on here… specially the tee.

  • Kat @ ginger, adorned

    Love how it gives the skirt even more fullness and just peeks out at the bottom. I’ve threatened to wear my tutu to work 4 times this week. My husband in mortified. And this is the guy who won’t stop telling people that I won’t ‘let’ him wear PJ pants in public. I think it get a pass, dude. 😉

  • Oh come now, a tutu isn’t that crazy! Far less crazy than PJ pants! And I KNOW you will do a good job of styling it!

  • Nicole

    I’d love to know the lipstick you are wearing! The perfect pink.

  • It IS the perfect pink and I need a full-sized version. it’s Laura Mercier’s “Pink Champagne” and I am trying to get out every drop from a mini tube with a lip brush! 🙂

    My sister lives on the Hill and I would have loved to have come to Hive on the Hill with her for a Sisters Night Out. Alas, too late to adjust the evening schedule at this point. Next time !

  • For sure!

  • Kat @ ginger, adorned

  • 🙂 next time you’re in the area! And thank you!

  • Aw I love the knotted t-shirt paired with the full skirt. That’s a really great idea to layer a tutu under a skirt kind of like a crinoline. I’m loving your dotted heels too!

  • That’s a festive look!

  • Your hair is darker? I’m obviously very obsessed with it 😉 Also, love wearing the two skirts together – cute!

  • Hayley
