Sweet & Rough

Once again, the lovely Jessica of What I Wore posted a blogger challenge, this time being Sweet & Rough, where she wanted us to show our delicate romantic pieces mixed up with something edgy.

Fortunately, I did this on Saturday, before I broke the camera!

When I heard about this challenge I immediately thought of the tutu that's been hanging in my closet for the last few weeks! I ordered it from Shop Nasty Gal on a whim and have been unsure what to do with it until now! Now, to be honest, I didn't really get to wear this outfit anywhere... it was 32 degrees outside (just under 90 degrees for my non-Canadian readers!) and way too hot for this much clothing! But I liked the idea of it all, and will someday break it out when I can actually wear it somewhere!

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! With 3 blistering hot days, lunches on patios, bbq's, afternoon icecreams and pink shoulders from the sun, I couldn't have asked for a better long weekend!

  4. This is so great. Who knew a tutu would work so well in a normal outfit?! I see this for Happy Hour at a bar that has outdoor seating. So excited for summer! ha
