The Fab 40’s in Pleats
It’s the final Monday of the month, so that means it is time for the latest edition of The Fab 40’s. This month’s style theme is pleats. I have to admit I was a little befuddled on how to proceed with this challenge. I do have a couple of skirts with large box pleats I enjoy styling and wearing, however, I wanted to wear an accordion pleat. More pleat-y, if you will. This theme helped me truly take a look at my wardrobe. I’ve had this teal, pleated skirt in my closet for a couple of years now with tags still intact, so I am glad I was finally forced to figure out a way to wear it. This time around I went with a mint button-up shirt, pretty accessories, and Mary Jane slingbacks. I am happy to say as I was considering how to style this skirt, I came up with some other ideas for future use.
What I’m Wearing: Shirt – NY&Co. // Skirt – Simply Vera Vera Wang // Necklace & Ring – Local Boutique // Bracelet – Gift from my husband // Shoes – Madden Girl // Sunnies – Charming Charlie

Sheela – Sheela Writes
As usual, I enjoyed seeing Sheela’s unique take on this challenge. Layering her blush dress over her leather and lace leggings was perfect. And can we talk about how beautiful said dress is? The beautiful color, hi-lo hemline, sheer layers are all breathtaking.

Dawn Lucy also had a bit of leather and lace in her monochromatic take on pleats. I am obsessed with her tattoo hose. I seriously want to give some a try!
