Pleated Midi Skirt and Lucite Shoes

Now that you know how to style lucite shoes with a classic skirt, today we feature a pleated midi skirt. This edgy look is right up my alley. I hope it is easy for you to replicate with items on your spring wish list.

I can remember the days when I was afraid of the midi length. At only five feet tall, the last thing I want to do intentionally is make myself look even shorter. I am here to tell you that it’s all about the shoes. No matter how tall you are, nude or lucite shoes will elongate the appearance of your legs. Another reason to take the plunge on one of the season’s hottest trends. Remember, they don’t have to lace up!

The Shine Your Way pleated midi skirt cascades like a waterfall. You cannot help but feel majestic
while wearing it. Jonathan calls it my mermaid skirt, and that is quite alright with me. Aside from the metallic blue sheen, I love the fullness and elastic side-zip waist band. Skirts are not always comfortable to wear but this one is. I dressed it simply with black accents. This black crop top has come in handy with most of my high waist garments. Looking for every occasion to show off the earrings Jonathan gifted me for fashion week, I pulled my up in a high bun.

I cannot speak for you, but I am not good at primping my own hair. Thankfully Kristin is available when I need her to save the day. I have always admired full “sock buns” but I have never been able to create one myself. I once tried cutting the toes off of an old pair of socks, and making my own donut. After failing at that craft, I purchased a legitimate hair donut and still could not get it right. Leave it to my first friend in life (you know who you are) to introduce me to the Hot Buns hair tool. What a game changer! Simply put, it is a sock bun maker for dummies. Now my favorite earrings of all time can receive the attention they deserve!
