Pretty Pleats

I could get dressed for a beach day with my eyes closed (sun dress, hat, bikini, big sunglasses...check!) but what my closet somewhat lacks are more refined pieces that I would feel comfortable wearing to a dinner or a meeting...

I have a few pencil skirts and shift dresses, but this H&M skirt is the perfect in-between.  It is flowy and comfortable while still giving that polished look.







Wearing Aritzia Silk Top, H&M Skirt, Aldo Heels,
Gifted Necklace, Kiel Mead Forget Me Knot Ring

  5. Love the skirt - it makes your waist look tiny!

    p.s. I saw oen of your pictures in a commercial yesterday! I was watching my DVR of the Kardashians and as I fast forwarded through the commercials, something made me stop... I rewound and there you were! It was a commercial for AzWell, a discount clothing store here in Tuscaloosa. I tried to find the video on youtube so I could send you the link, but I couldn't find it. Anyway, I thought that was sooo random because I just started reading your blog a few weeks ago and I already recognized you somewhere!

  17. I positively adore this skirt! It didn't feel the same about me, sadly, but you wear it so well that I can't even really be jealous :) Your hair look absolutely stunning, too- I don't know how you manage it, but I'm definitely envious!

  19. Skirt envy!! I get so annoyed when I see bloggers list that they got certain (covetable) items from H&M... Why we don't have an H&M in Hawaii still baffles me.. and the fact that I can't even shop online with them... is an epic fail on their behalf... I'd generate a lot of revenue for them.. hee hee...

    Rant aside, you look fabulous my dear. Chic and polished indeed. Great blog btw (now following you). Hope you're having a beautiful Tuesday!

    xx Love & Aloha
