Pleats and Chambray

It probably sounds silly to say, but I've had this outfit in my head since last September and it took me seven months to finally wear it.

The skirt was very well received at work; which I thought was interesting because it's not something I'd normally put together for the office.

Though I'm glad it finally did come together!

  7. So pretty and feminine! The ruffles really add something to a simple chambray.
    I've had similar situations with outfits that I really want to wear, but the occasion never presents itself.Not silly at all!

  20. That's some heavy planning for an outfit! ;) It's successful though, definitely. I dig the soft pleats of your skirt and how you tied your chambray top. Lots of fun textures in this outfit right here and I love them all!

  28. I believe you.... i take forever to make outfits happen.
    I like this and am glad it was well received at the office, if i recall correctly they are, as we say i n SPanish "sin gracia" which kind of means "without grace" so they don't really appreciate your outfts.

  34. I love pleated skirts but they looks os weird on me that I gave my pink one to Nnenna. I'm still on the hunt for a chambray shirt, too. I keep telling myself that one day it will come.

    I just noticed that you're wearing double pleats! Awesome! I like double anything, especially leopard.

  39. love that skirt! I haven't worn skirts in forever for some reason..?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I too have quite a few outfits that I've been thinking about for months. Usually the reason I haven't worn them yet is that I'm waiting for the perfect weather (not too hot, not too cold), and sometimes for that perfect weather to coincide with a weekend so we can drive to a fun location for photos!

  41. this combination is just so PRETTY with the flowyness of the skirt and light shoes!

  42. I agree that pleats are a career smart look. The movement of the skirt is a welcomed change to all of the structured outfit we see and wear everyday.
