What I Wore: Pleated Floral


If you’re in search of fall outfit inspiration, you’re in the wrong place. Clearly we’re still in the grip of summer weather here. Or at least we were this past weekend, when I took these shots. For all I know Austin experienced a cooling spell as soon as I left. And it will probably still be near 90 when I return.

I love this skirt. It’s easy to wear, since you can just pick any tone out of the floral print (which is itself a great color palette) and use that on top. And the pleats give it a nice touch. It moves really well, too, very swingy and breezy. Also, can I just say how much I love solid color tanks that aren’t boring? Again, easy to pair with something because of the color, but with enough interesting details that it’s not just a throw-away – perfection. I was originally wearing my hair down when I went out to coffee with a friend in the morning, but it quickly warmed up and necessitated hair off the neck.
