Being girly doesn’t always mean wearing frills and pleats. But sometimes it does!
I fell in love with this white pleated midi skirt the second I saw it at Charlotte Russe. I’m a sucker for high-waisted skirts. And although I’m not usually a fan of longer skirts, I love the shape this skirt has. It has so much heft that it stands straight out from my body and makes me feel like I’m wearing a petticoat from the Little House on the Prairie days.
To really work the girly vibe, I paired this pleated skirt with a baby pink t-shirt from Forever 21.
I love these brown flatforms from Payless. They’re so comfortable and go with everything. I love the 70s revival here. And they add some spunk to an otherwise very “prissy” outfit.
The only problem with this outfit is that this skirt is SO hard to wash. It needs to be hand-washed, but it’s so big it barely fits in my sink. Then, it’s really hard to shape back into the stand-out pleats. The material is so thick it’s hard to work with. It’s so cute, it’s super worth the extra hassle. Sometimes fashion involves being a little high-maintenance!
