I think I have found it. A pleated skirt, a thin jumper accessorised with a pair of trainers. Such an easy outfit, one that looks great and feels great too. It is officially my new fail-safe combo. You may have noticed by now that I love to wear a pleated skirt – there hasn’t been a time of year when I haven’t worn one. However, they are an item of clothing you either love or hate, the same with a pair of dungarees.
I love a pleated skirt. Whether worn with chunky boots, ballet pumps, converse or sandals they are perfect for my wardrobe. Whether I am heading into Manchester with Mr H for date day or off on an adventure with our five year old the pleated skirt seems to be the one I reach for each time. I often find myself stood in my dressing room pulling out my jeans, midi dresses and the like only to come back to a pleated skirt each time. I won’t lie my collection is growing, I recently added a pastel blue which I am really going to enjoy wearing as the weather gets a little warmer.
What I will say is its not what you wear but how you wear it. I don’t think you can ever go wrong with a pleated skirt, a sweater and a pair of trainers. You will also find me pairing this style of skirt with a body suit, casual tee or a shirt. I have an array of colours and lengths now although my favourite is the slightly longer length which exposes my ankles. I have come to the terms that they often aren’t the most flattering, especially when worn with a jumper but the key for me is feeling comfortable and stylish. That’s what this outfit is for me.
Twelve months ago my go to style for a mummy and son day would be my dungarees but lately I just haven’t felt as comfortable, which I guess could be all the Easter chocolate or just that I am channelling my inner ballerina or maybe even the change in weather. I do love to expose my ankles.
