It feels like forever since I’ve posted a good old outfit post so today I am bringing you some outfit inspiration from one of my favourite trends that has been hugely popular these past few months. That’s right, you’ve guessed it – it’s the pleated midi skirt trend (was it obvious from the title?)
I’ve banned myself from shopping this January (well so I had tried) so in theory I wasn’t meant to be getting new clothes. However I had been lusting after a pleated midi skirt for so long that when my bargain hunting eyes fell upon this, I really had no other option than to just buy it. Poor excuse I know, but when you find an item you just love it’s often much harder to justify not buying it, who needs to eat well for a week when you can have new clothes ‘ay. Nah just kidding I love food too much to sacrifice it but you get the jist.
It was a hard choice on what colour skirt to go for as I’ve seen so many gorgeous ones on instagram that my fellow blogging pals have been wearing, however I decided in the end to go for this really metallic grey/silver one from Very. As soon as I opened the package I was in love with the colour and so pleased with my choice. It’s got a lovely metallic shimmer to it without being glittery in any way and the silver is such a versatile colour, I can wear it during either day or night.
I’m also really loving slogan jumpers right now, so I dug this cropped one out of my wardrobe and teamed it up with my favourite pair of shades and my new (ish) H&M brogues. Altogether I found this look made a really great day time outfit and was just the right kind of edgy & comfy (comfy always being important because I am a true sloth and need to always be at max comfort).
Has anyone else purchased themselves a pleated midi skirt, what are your thoughts on this trend?
