the pretty {pleated} skirt effect

Lauren Conrad pleated skirt (bought with Kohl's cash last season, FTW) | JCrew graphic tee (a pretty penny) | NY&Co belt | Gianni Bini sandals | Louis Vuitton cosmetic case used as a clutch (a pretty penny, available online)




Here’s the beautiful thing about a pretty pleated skirt: You can toss it on with just about anything — say, perhaps, a seafood graphic tee and casual sandals — and you’ll float around all day feeling lovely and light-as-a-breeze. I felt extra graceful and feminine today, even with a lobster on my chest.

If you don’t have one already, may I suggest adding this surprisingly versatile piece to your spring and summer shopping list? Maybe this sunny yellow one from Ruche,   or this mocha mini from Modcloth (both under $50!).

    Girl, I snagged that skirt in January for $15 Kohl’s bucks and skipped right out of the store! Love to see how you paired it with a T-Shirt! Very inspiring.

    So. Great. I would never have thought to pair a t-shirt like this with a pleated skirt, but I just love the mix – casual but a little fancy, fun but ladylike. Good one!

    What an easy way to look and feel romantically feminine! Too bad the weather’s been too horrible in my part to even consider busting out spring fashion quite yet. Beautiful pics tho! x

    To be fair, who wouldn’t feel feminine with a lobster on their chest? Ha ha. This look is totally great!
