Pleats and thank-you: styling an asymmetrical pleated maxi skirt with a floral blouse, corset belt, and mary-jane heels

Here it is, dear readers - my first ever pleated skirt!!

First ever as an adult, I should probably clarify...since I'm fairly sure that I wore at least a couple as a little girl. But it's taken me this long to find a grown-up version that felt like me; everything I'd seen up until now just skewed a bit too "stodgy" for my taste.  This skirt, though??  With its asymmetrical hem and that cool colour-blocking, it's definitely not the same old same old!!

And my new floral blouse is the definition of boho perfection, don't you agree??  When I tried it on at Forever 21, I happened to be wearing a pair of flare jeans - and of course that single serendipitous combo clinched the sale!!  Still, we all want our pieces to work together in more ways than one...so I was thrilled with how well it came together with the skirt, too!!

This was my outfit for grocery shopping, by the way; as my regular visitors know by now, I don't let something as mundane as an errand get in the way of my sartorial mood of the moment!!  Life is too short to save our prettiest pieces for "fancy" occasions only... I'll always believe in wearing what you love whenever you want!!
