Workin' the Pleated Maxi!

Hey ladies and gents!

I hope you all are doing well.  I know I have mentioned this before but I love being able to come home and take pics in the daylight!!  Totally fabulous!  Let's talk about what I wore to work today.

My pleated maxi skirt!  Pleats are trending and a couple of weeks ago I told you all that I had a coupon that I had to use at Ashley Stewart before it expired.  While I was there I bumped into this skirt on the sale rack and couldn't pass it up.  As far as how to style it, I had something else in mind when I picked up but this is how I wore it today.  The real reason why I wore it today was because it was the first chill we had in a while and I put away all my winter clothes.  I knew spring was gonna play peek-a-boo.  I wore this skirt so that I could hide the footless leggings I wore to keep my gams warm.  You gotta do what you gotta do...even though I could have worn slacks but I was looking for an excuse to wear the darn skirt...sue me!






Skirt and top: Ashley Stewart  Blazer: Thrifted   Belt: Target  Pumps: Simply Vera by Vera Wang

I'm off to catch up on hundreds of blog posts you all have posted
in the last couple of days that I am behind on :)
