This outfit is one of my favourites. I love colour and I love stripes, so this is just a match made in heaven!
- skirt from Sportsgirl
- blouse from Pilgrim Clothing
- shoes from Jigsaw
Pleated skirts are so much fun to wear and instantly liven things up. The entire time I was wearing this skirt, I just wanted to do ballerina twirls and show off the movement and floatiness of the fabric. The colours are quite fruity and bold so I thought it would be best to balance the outfit with a white/cream tie front blouse. In the past I have worn the skirt with a plain navy tank top and it worked really nicely too.
And, of course, you can’t go wrong with a white blouse. The one I chose is very summery and light, with a fun tie detail to add some interest. I decided to leave it un-tucked mainly due to the tie situation, but also because the elastic waistband on the skirt is a little bit unattractive.
Perfect for traipsing around, or going to work, this outfit encapsulates the lightness and brightness of summer.
