Perfectly Pleated…Again!

Happy Hump Day all!

Since I’ve gotten over my hang up with pleats, I had to have this orange midi skirt from City Chic. This is my first purchase from City Chic and the skirt doesn’t disappoint. Online the skirt appears light orange but its darker in person. It fits true to size so there was no gap in the waist for me. It’s lined so it isn’t sheer or see through. The skirt is a good way to introduce color into your work wardrobe. . You can also transition it into the fall by wearing a cardigan or a v neck sweater with it .

I shopped my closet and found this Gap Outlet shirt that I had forgotten about (I know that’s bad!). The shirt has flecks of orange in it which goes well with the skirt. I added my yellow necklace because for some reason it works with the outfit. Plus I love this necklace and will use any excuse to wear it!

How would you wear a colored pleated skirt? Have a great evening!

Me and my buddy TJ!

    I would wear a color pleated skirt just like you because no one can do it better! Coral is your color lady and I am sure pleats were created for your body! You look fab!

    Beautiful outfit! I prefer shorter skirts, but they’re hard to find for me; I’m barely 5’2 so even petite sizes are too long. But my sewing room will be finished by the end of this month – then I can buy what I like and fix it – woo hoo!!

      Woo hoo! Youre lucky to be blessed with the gift of sewing!

    I like that necklace too – and it does go well with the outfit – that’s why I come out here – never would have thought of trying that.
    You look great!

      Thank you! I was just trying different necklaces on & the yellow one just worked.

    I have a think for polka dots…how would polka dots and pleats look?

    • July 19, 2012 / 6:13 pm

      I think it would look good! Try it own with different sizes of polka dotss. I think youre on to something!

    Love that blouse. The colors in it are going to go with so many things. Since I usually wear flat shoes, I can’t get into the midi length skirts, but they look great on you!

    • July 19, 2012 / 6:11 pm

      Awww I think a midi skirt with heels would look HOT on you!
