A few years ago I dressed up for a party in a tutu skirt A la' Carrie Bradshaw. A hot pink tutu skirt which I passed on to my 8 yrs old niece later on. Let's be honest a woman 25 and above should not be dressed like an eight year old. Never. Ever.
Even thou I was already in my 30's I styled my pink tutu skirt with some tough black and silver accessories. A black one shoulder top, studded black heels and some cool bracelets with spikes. So it wasn't such a girly girl kind of outfit after all. A little over a year ago I also wore a black tutu skirt with a DIY  feathers on it. It was a girly outfit but again not too girly. I had an open back black top and blue pumps to match the blue feathers on my tutu skirt.
But today's outfit it's all about a more settle ballerina, more modern I'll say. The skirt it's not necessarily a tutu and it's length makes a huge difference. So to make it even less girlish I added this awesome green vest. At my age it's all about length, fit and the appropriate amount of girliness. I want to look modern, chic and in style and most important; my age.
