I am always a little hesitant when it comes to purchasing trendy items. I want to make sure they not only work with my body type, but also match my personal style. There are many that you will never see me in: culottes, fringe, and crochet tops all come to mind. But every once in a while I find one that I love, and lately that has been pleats. I purchased this skirt from Banana Republic last fall, worn here.
I love how flattering the skirt is, and that you can easily dress it up or down. I wore this outfit on our last day in Charleston. This sweatshirt kept me warm since we occasionally caught of guest of wind from the river, and it was the perfect neutral for the skirt. It ended up being a beautiful day, and it was hard to go home after such a nice long weekend.
