NewChic Tulle Skirt

Maxi skirts and dresses always seemed to fall into the casual category for me. Don’t get me wrong, I always thought they were cute, but the material and cuts were always more like wearing sweatpants in skirt form (which, again, I personally think is a great idea). However, I just recently discovered a whole world of maxi skirts and dresses that are filled with layers of chiffon and tulle…which would make them decidedly not casual attire. And thus, cementing a whole new obsession for me – give me all the twirly, swirly maxi skirts, please!

This skirt is another one of my finds from NewChic, and it is just under $12! You can’t beat that price. I really love the way this skirt moves when I walk – it’s so fun and fairytale-like. This skirt also came with more tulle fabric to tie into a bow belt around my waist…however, I completely forgot about it when I was getting dressed that day. I will show you how that looks next time I break this skirt out (and trust me, there’ll be a next time). The only thing to be aware of with this skirt is it doesn’t exactly look like the picture of it on the website. (Click here to see it.) I think this is another case of the model being about 4 feet tall, so the skirt looks super duper long on her. (And for reference, I’m about 5’5″.) I’m happy with the length of the skirt…it just doesn’t really look like the photo on the site.

My top is also from NewChic for only $6! For $6 it is absolutely awesome quality. My mom is actually ordering this top in a few colors now that she saw how cute mine is, haha. My only complaint about this top (which you can’t see in these photos) is that it’s a bit short. If I were to wear it with a pair of pants, it would sit right above the button on a pair of normal rise pants. Which, really there’s nothing wrong with that…It’s just my personal preference to like my tops so long they almost cover my backside!

And holy moly, I’m wearing a short-sleeved shirt in these photos and not freezing my butt off! It has been absolutely BEAUTIFUL this past week. I’m finally starting to dig out some spring outfits, and slowly putting away my tights and boots. It’s really exciting, haha.

Is anyone else finally getting some spring-like weather too? And does anyone else share my newfound obsession with maxi skirts and dresses? Let me know in the comments!

  1. That top is awesome! I really love the lacy details.

    We have been getting some great weather here too, but every day is totally different! Winter one minute, spring the next. It’s nuts!

    1. Thank you so much, Jen! The weather has been all over the place here now too. We had a crazy thunderstorm last night and 50-60 mph wind today, snow tomorrow lol. So, much for that warm weather!

  2. This is a gorgeous outfit!! I love how you added the scarf and that bag! And that site sounds like it would be for me. I always have the opposite problem when looking for maxi skirts (hence why I have none at the moment.) The model is so tall that when I get the skirt it’s dragging on the floor, haha. You look amazing!

  3. Very pretty, I especially love that top! I love this warmer weather too, except I’ve had a cold so I haven’t really been able to enjoy it. I do love all this rain though, much better than snow! πŸ™‚

  4. You guys are heading into Spring and we’re just starting to crave Autumn! Thank goodness for seasons – there’s always something to look forward to. πŸ™‚ You look lovely in this outfit – I don’t find myself reaching for maxi skirts very often. Might need to try one out soon…
    hugs,

  5. I’m kind of amazed you got that skirt for only $12 and it sits perfectly on you! Whenever I’ve bought a cheap tulle skirt it puffs out a little too much! I have to agree about the maxi skirts being casual, but this definitely lifts it up! Love how you get movement pictures with blurring, I’ve yet to master that :p

    Also thanks for your lovely compliment about Felicity Smoak – I had to look her up and she’s gorgeous, you made me blush!

    1. Thank you so much, Emily! I’m still amazed it’s only $12! Movement pics can be a bit tricky, but my camera, fortunately, takes most of the trickiness out of it (I can’t really take any credit for it!). πŸ™‚ Haha glad I didn’t creep you out with that! πŸ˜‰

  6. I LOVE this outfit! ! So pretty Lindsey!! Maxi skirts are the best thing to come along in a long time! ! So comfy they should almost be outlawed! ! Lol
