    Multicolor Pleated Maxi Skirt

    Flowy dresses and maxi skirts are a favorite of mine. I love anything that will flow and blow in the wind basically. Trying to live a dreamy life over here! Anyway, when I saw this pastel colored pleated maxi skirt I was in love. I thought it was the perfect skirt to bring along with me to my early fall photoshoot with Lauren. It is high waisted which means a bodysuit is perfect to pair with it since you don’t have to worry about tucking anything in. My ribbed bodysuit has tortoiseshell buttons and fits perfectly! A definite closet staple, in my opinion. Lastly, the skirt is pretty long on…

    Floral Pleated Skirt

    I’m so happy to have the day off from work today. It’s been a long month and a half so the long weekend is so welcome. I know, Columbus Day is controversial, but I will take any day off I can get. I love a good Amazon find as I’m sure many of you do and Amazon Fashion has seriously stepped up its game in the past year. I have been impressed with the few items I’ve ordered so far and this floral pleated skirt is no exception. I love the mauve-y pink color of it and the floral print is so pretty. Add in the fact that the skirt…

    Restyled: Blue Velvet Pleated Skirt

    When I had my photoshoot with Lauren at the beginning of the month this outfit was not one of the original outfits I picked out. Just days before the photoshoot I switched out my more vibrant, hot weather outfit, for this white sleeveless top and blue velvet pleated skirt because the weather was supposed to be cool and cloudy that day. As with all my shoots with Lauren, the weather ended up being hotter and sunnier than forecasted (not complaining!). Anyway, I’ve worn this blue velvet pleated skirt on here before but that was with a long sleeve white tee so definitely more of a cool weather look. This time I styled…

    Pleated Duet Dress

    The heat wave the past couple days has been crazy. The heat makes me so tired and today is another hot day on the verge of 100 degrees. I have an exciting thing going on later today though so keep an eye out for my Instastories and I’ll be writing a blog post in a week or so all about it! For the past week, I have had family in town visiting so it’s been a lot of eating out and spending time with family. Over the weekend my family had a bbq and I chose to wear this pleated duet dress for a cute but still flowy and lightweight look…

    Restyled: Floral Pleated Maxi Skirt

    A few years ago I styled this floral pleated maxi skirt with a blue tank top for a summer look. I decided it was time to restyle it and took it with me to my spring photoshoot with Jaye. This time I wore a hot pink tank top with a lace back. I wore gold jewelry with lightweight statement earrings, a layered tassel necklace that I got as a gift from Baublebar, and a dainty gold bracelet. Top: Express | Skirt: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s | Shoes: ASOS | Bracelet: Express | Necklace: Baublebar | Earrings: Premiere Designs I went with pink because I thought it brought a nice…

    Blue Velvet Midi Skirt

    This light blue velvet pleated midi skirt is so dreamy. It makes me think of Cinderella actually. I’ve been waiting for so long to wear this skirt, because I wanted it to be warm enough to wear without tights – I don’t think it’d look good with tights – and before it got too warm to wear it. The ruffled or paper bag waist and blue ribbon are the cutest details. I paired the skirt with a plain white long sleeve tee which allowed the skirt to be the star of the outfit. I also like the mix of casual and dressy. I wore light grey open-toed sandals to finish…

    Valley Floral Pleated Skirt + Satin Bow Mules

    So if you haven’t guessed, I’m totally into mules right now (see my post about my embroidered mules here) and right now is the perfect time to be wearing them as the weather isn’t so cold that my feet are freezing but they’re still close-toed. These pink satin bow mules are perfect and I’m so happy I found them. The color is so beautiful and the bows and the satin – my love for them is real. They went perfectly with my valley floral pleated skirt. I paired the skirt and satin bow mules with a white blouse with delicate lace paneling. And in case it would be cold at…

    Pleats, Please

      Pleats, Please by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring beige handbags Pleated skirts are a love of mine. I think they’re perfect for so many different looks and attires especially if you want to look a bit more sophisticated. So when Polyvore had a pleated skirt challenge, of course, I had to take part. ***** This gorgeous green pleated skirt with sakura blossom print reminds me of the LC Lauren Conrad skirt I shared here, which sadly did not fit. Because the skirt has so much going on, I wanted to go with something simple for the top. I went with this pale pink sleeveless blouse with a lace yoke. Again, I wanted…

    Floral Pleated Maxi Skirt

    We’re almost to the weekend! I can’t wait to get some extra sleep because I’m feeling pretty run down this week. So what do you do when the temperature changes throughout the day, ranging from very warm to cool in a matter of hours? Wearing layers is the obvious answer, but you could also do what I did a few weekends ago and wear a sleeveless top with a maxi skirt. I decided to wear a ribbed tank top with a very full, maxi skirt. This pleated floral maxi skirt from LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s has more layers than you would think hence why I said it was a very full…
