It’s about 11:40 pm on this late Sunday night. I just came straight home from the airport from a weekend long bachelorette trip in San Francisco (imagine 16 girls from Seattle all up to no good hehe), and the first thing I’m doing is writing up this blog post. Yep, that’s how excited I was to share this pleated maxi skirt outfit with you!
First of all, how stunning is this pleated maxi skirt? I saw it on Shein and was completely swooned! The blush color is so romantic and the pleated details are simply beautiful. The skirt is made of polyester fabric, but since it’s shiny, it looks and feels like silk! The skirt definitely appears expensive but it’s really only $29 and also comes in a silver color. If you want this skirt, you’ll most likely need to get it hemmed since it’s VERY long – the Small, which I’m wearing, is about 45.5 inches long. The waist (which is high-waisted) also doesn’t have any stretch to it so make sure you get the appropriate size (Shein says that the Small waist size is about 26 inches but remember, no stretch!). Finally, the skirt is slightly sheer so I would recommend wearing nude colored undergarments. You’ll end up paying a little more to hem this pleated maxi skirt, but it’ll be worth every penny in the end. You’ll get a gorgeous flowy skirt with a customized length! Trust me, all you’ll want to do is twirl in it!
To add to the romantic-ness of this skirt, I paired it with a simple cream lace top (similar here). In contrast, I toughened up the outfit with a faux leather jacket. The burgundy color doesn’t make it too tough so the result is this soft colored, feminine look! Also, as you know, I love being comfortable so I wore my Halogen pointy toe studded flats. I purposely hemmed this skirt to wear it with flats so that I could wear it for multiple purposes and not just for dressing up. This skirt would be so cute with a simple white top for summer, right?!
