When it comes to wear I wear on a daily basis, skirts are often a forgotten item. My morning routine often consists of the same thought. What is easiest to wear? Dresses are great because you don’t have to match them with anything. And jeans just go with everything. Anyone else think like that? Some days, I can’t even. However, if you pick the right skirt it can give you all the versatility of denim and add that “I actually tried” vibe.

Pleated White Dress + Spring #FBloggerNation Kickoff

white pleated dress in los olivos

So excited to kick off the spring series of #FBloggerNation today with my girls! It’s not quite spring per the calendar, but I’ve found it’s always best to start thinking about the next season just a little bit before everyone else. Otherwise, April will be here and you’ll be searching for cute outfits otherwise known as battling stock outs of the best stuff.

Drama

Visions of Vogue - Pleated Leather 2

Can we just rewind to Friday night? Another busy weekend means I’m mourning the departure of the weekend with an all black ensemble. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done black head to toe and this look made me realize how much I missed it. It’s so easy to mix and match your blacks and I love cheating a little by pairing different textures together. I mean, I’m just obsessed. I have a feeling these black on black outfits will start to show up more and more (at least until it’s warm enough for crop tops again).

As a no-drama, low maintenance gal, this pleated maxi is all the drama I need. Easy to transition from winter to spring to summer as well. It made shooting these pictures so fun shooting although it’s always fun anytime I get to twirl. Matt gets a lot of entertainment from it too because some of the photos come out absolutely ridiculous! Awkward faces, being caught mid trip… there is never a dull moment when we are shooting!!

Pleated Midi

I’ve been obsessing over the silhouette created by pairing this pleated midi with a crop top. Easy to wear, the outfit shows a tiny bit of skin to keep it tasteful yet interesting. The geometric pattern on this skirt moves so well, almost creating an optical illusion as the pleats blow in the wind – like one of those magic eye images you used to try to see an image inside of as a kid.

The key to a flattering crop top is the design. I love this Free People crop top because the angled cut is so incredibly slimming. While I’ve paired it with a high-waisted skirt (the safest bet), I could probably get away with pairing it with pants or layered over a longer top. I’ve been known to layer my crop tops over button downs for a modest look that gives you some shape and allows you to wear these amazing pieces to work!

And bring out the big necklaces – it’s the Friday and it’s time to sparkle. Plus both this crop top and the skirt are on sale! Hope y’all have a lovely weekend!
