Work Staples: A Pleated Skirt

Having long legs is both a blessing and a curse – especially during the summer months. Wearing short skirts to work is just not something I can do because EVERYTHING just looks shorter and well, sluttier. And so, I tend to spend my money on longer skirts and dresses but it can be a challenge to find ones that are timeless and work appropriate.

I picked up this gorgeous pleated skirt from Uniqlo and can I just say, it’s so easy to dress up or down. (Shoutout to my friend Natalie Ast of Natalia Style for the brilliant reco!)

Here, the French Riviera was a major inspiration because France is always on my mind. I paired the timeless piece with a polka dot blouse, block-heel pumps and a warm yellow bucket bag for a pop of colour. I have just been loving this mustard hue this season!

This skirt comes in blush pink and white. I may have to go back and pick up one in the blush pink, too because it’s just so easy to wear and style.
