Pleated Skirts for Spring

image

www.1summersday.co.vu

Since today is the very first day of Spring, I thought it fitting to share my favorite trend of the season - pleated skirts!  I love them in pastel shades like blue and pink and the basic black and white too.  They transition easily from the office to an evening out and are so comfortable and effortless for the weekends.  For a polished look, wear them with a collared button down or sweater to work.  When off-duty, pair them with a tee-shirt and sandals.  You can’t go wrong.  And I’m loving Ann Taylor’s knit version for just under $100.

I love the simplicity of black and white in fashion and home decor.  It has the rare ability to look timeless yet modern.  

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”

- Coco Chanel

Fashion Week Street Style

My favorite street style looks from fashion week are tailored, polished, lady-like, and truly wearable to the office.  I love the clean, modern simplicity of black and white with accents of burgundy and red.  And I love that sky high stilettos prevailed over the snowy streets and chilly temperatures in the city.  I hope your work style will be inspired by these gorgeous pics as we endure our last few months of winter!
