I was inspired by Angie's tulle skirt/ blazer looks to try a couple of my own. Tonight we went out for dinner to celebrate my child's successful semester (and year) -- straight As!

When I got the tulle skirt in the fall, I thought of casualizing it with with denim jacket, graphic tee and sneakers (no photo, but I wore it this way in the early fall, and here's a version with stompy boots that I also wore, pic 5) and semi-casualizing it with a knit military jacket, sequin cami, and booties (wore it this way, too, pic 4.)

Tried it today with 2 blazers -- shocking pink J. Crew and red Hobbs.

There is hot pink in the plaid but it works well enough with red, I think. I ended up wearing the red jacket version with the stompy boots (pic 1) because rain was in the forecast and it was cooling down a bit when we headed out. Plus I think the proportion of the shorter jacket is a bit easier to work with.

Thanks for the inspiration, Angie! I'm going to try it with other blazers, too!!

Edited to add -- my dressed up version also included a blazer -- I'd forgotten! I did take the jacket off for most of the evening but the photo shows it.
