4 Ways to Wear a Pleated Skirt

Happy Hump Day! Can Thursday hurry up? It is vacation week for my hubby and I me and I am just excited to have some relax time with the hubby, chilling, sipping margaritas (sounds awesome right?).

A couple of weeks ago, the hubby and I decided to do a little shopping for our vacation. Now anytime I shop if I can find an item that catches my eye, I have to buy it. I typically have a plan going in the mall but I always find myself coming out with about 10 bags. Sad but true. During this time, H&M were having an 80% off sale that I cannot just pass up. Scrolling through the sale section I came across this black HM pleaded skirt.  Guess how much this baby was? $7 to be exact. I went in for vacation clothes and came out with vacation, a birthday outfit, work clothes, and casual pieces.

I realize a lot of people like pleated skirts but necessarily don't know how to wear them. I am here to help because it is real simple. Wear what you want. I was having some fun getting these outfits together and came up with these 4 ways you can wear a pleated skirt. 

Look 1. Wear it with Neon



Look 2. Dress it Down with Tennis Shoes


Look 3. Dress it up with Heeled Sandals

Look 4. Add Some Denim to it.

I have always had a love for pleated skirts, I just could never find one in the right budget. Now that I found my long lost friend, we can now make magic happen. I hope you guys enjoyed all the looks I have shared. If so, which is your favorite? The denim would have to be mine lol. 


HM Black Pleated Skirt

White Maxi Dress + Olive Green Belt Shirt


It's crazy how one day you could be perfectly fine and the next your sick, something awful happens, and you feel like your world is just sinking in. I sometimes have to take a step back and see how I can better certain situations. In life, some things are wake up calls for me, to get me out of a certain twilight zone, I like to call zazaland. And the past month has been a constant battle on my physical health.


At this point in my life, I’m taking some time for myself to sit and see what direction I need to be gearing in, for my future. If that is losing some people then so be it, if I stand on my own then so be it, but the only person who can realize that, is me. For this look, I styled this white maxi dress (Similar), olive green pullover(similar), and my taupe lace up booties(similar).
