Styling A Floral Pleated Skirt…πŸŒ»πŸπŸ‘—

August 21, 2019

Another Pleated Skirt In the Mix!

I am in Anne Shirley’s linkup https://glamadventure.com/work-from-home-tips/

I was reluctant to try this trend because I felt that as a petite and curvy woman a pleated skirt may make me look short and dumpy.

I picked up this dark floral skirt for a great price a couple of weeks ago and felt it would be perfect for the last of our mild winter and into spring and autumn next year.

The skirt would look great with a cute graphic t-shirt and sandals in summer too …

Movement and Matching!

The skirt has beautiful movement when I walk and is very feminine and swishy.

It is quite long, but that is the nature of the skirt, and I don’t find it overwhelming or that it swamps my frame.

The light nature of the georgette fabric certainly helps with this.

I can be a bit conservative in the way I dress and chose to wear a black v-neck faux-wrap top and this fabulous suede fringed jacket which is pre-loved and I purchased at a steampunk festival – I think it would look great with burgundy on top so will have to look into that!!

The burgundy tights and gorgeous booties were brought out to play again because I just love them soo much!

Added Extras…

The mid-sized belt, beret and sunglasses finished off what is basically a simple outfit.

I’ve also paired it with a burgundy velour jumper and longer tartan coat…

I wore this to get some energy healing – working with crystals, reiki and chakras – even if it’s placebo it always helps with the anxiety and pain following the botched breast reconstruction surgery, so such sessions are always looked forward to!!

This little fringed jacket is my preferred option with my other pleated skirt too, and you can read about that skirt https://donnadoesdresses.com/2019/05/15/styling-a-sunray-pleated-skirt-a-fringed-jacket-and-a-groovy-hat-for-stylish-dressing-πŸ€”πŸ™€πŸ˜‰/

      Oh thank you so much, dear Nancy – when I put the post up I had a feeling this would be your cup of tea!! And yes the boots are great – and even better because they were a gift from son’s girlfriend because they were too small for her!! Enjoy the rest of your week!

      Oh thank you so much – hats and berets tend to be real statement pieces these days and I do love that little something extra in my outfit! I’m glad you like it!

    Wow – I need that skirt! I love the way you’ve topped it off – it’s just perfect and looks just beautiful on you. And those boots! Gorgeous backdrop, too! And you look very tall in it – I’d never have guessed πŸ˜›

      Thank you so much for your kind and generous comment!! It is a great spot to live here on the south east coast of Australia and yess! to these fabby boots – I’ve worn them all winter!! I’m glad I don’t look short in this skirt because that was always my doubt about wearing this style…

      Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful comment, Ivana!! It’s funny because I resisted such skirts for the longest time as I was sure they just wouldn’t suit me or would make me look too short and dumpy – but I quite like the aesthetic now!! Have a great week!!
