Happy Monday! Today, I wanted to share one of my favorite ensembles that I wore recently. It consists of a pleated-back blouse from Francesca's and a pleather A-line skirt from Marshall's. I spotted this blouse at work and the uniqueness of the pleats on the back captivated me, but I never gave in to buying it until it went on clearance. Even then, it sat in my closet, collecting dust, because I had no idea how to style it. How exactly do you style a cropped (but not too cropped) top with a pleated back? I tried to look at Pinterest for outfit inspirations, but had no luck. One night, I played around with different bottoms, and found the perfect pairing: a pleather skirt. I think the edginess of the skirt contrasts extremely well with the poshness of the blouse. It's proper on the top and punk on the bottom.
