* Skirt – Ebay * Blazer – Forever 21 * Belt – Forever 21 * Sandals – Ralph Lauren *

 

I purchased this skirt (worn as a dress) during my floral
phase and for the life of me I couldn’t figure out how to wear it.  Last week I had an aaahhh moment when I saw
NeShanta of Stylish She wearing a pleated skirt as a dress! Good idea right, so
I decided to be a total copy cat and finally bring out this floral beauty. This
is one reason I love blogging and blogs, inspiration is all over the place.  
A major crisis has been averted this skirt lives to see
another day and avoids the Goodwill pile.

    p.s.  I wanted to do some style on my blog but I'm too scared.  That was the plan but..it just too nerve racking.  maybe one day I'll get the courage..LOL

  2. What a great skirt/dress!  I love that about blogging–you get so inspired by others.  I know that before blogging I would have never thought to do this and it totally works!
