Pleated Perfection

Pleated Perfection 10Happy Thursday, loves! Currently obsessing over an up and coming trend for the end of summer/pre-fall season: off shoulder pieces! I’ve been seeing more and more of this trend now, from cropped tops to flowy ruffled dresses–I’m certain that this trend is here to stay and will see us through the fall season!

I’ve paired my particular off-shoulder top with an a-line pleated midi skirt for a more polished look that can take you from the office to a nice night out!

Despite being a midi skirt, the material is very light, which makes it a great piece even on those hotter summer days.
