Pretty, pink pleats. Oh, how I love thee… Even with this littlest love just growing away, I couldn’t resist this beautiful skirt. Thankfully – it came with an elastic waist band so it came with a side of comfort, too. Little tip when it comes to wearing pleats, especially around the waist : when in doubt, size UP. Why? Well, pleats have a tendency to dark out if they don’t lie completely flat causing them to make you look wider than you really are so avoid this little optical illusion by making sure you have the right fit.
Sometimes I get the feeling that many women might pass on what might be considered a piece that is reserved for only “dressy” occasions and while that sometimes might be the case, I’m here to say that more often than not you can still style most things in your closet to be both casual and dressy. One of the easiest ways to do that is by tossing on a denim jacket. This blush pink skirt paired so nicely with a light wash denim jacket and simple ruffle trimmed ivory camisole.
I love a beautiful pair of shoes (this we know…) and I’m so glad I brought home this classic tan suede pair that are making quite a impression in my closet these days. Dressed up or down, I pretty much want to wear them as often as possible.
