Lavender Pleats


1) I saw this skirt on a fellow blogger, Nancy @ Adore to Adorn and I had to have it! It's so perfect for Spring and the lavender color is just beautiful! My only complaint...it's a little staticy, but I've already found a solution thanks to Wiki:)!  2) My shoes. I spotted them on Zara.com about a month ago. I waited and waited. Do I really need them? How often can I wear them? Finally, I decided to purchase them. I needed a brown pair of shoes and this pair was versatile enough to wear with skirts, shorts, jeans, etc. Hope you like this look! Have a great day:)!

  13. Hi Rita, how stunning are you! I love the skirt it is so pretty for spring, and those shoes! You know I've been eyeing those Zara shoes for way too long myself. Sorry I don't visit as often as I'd like to, life gets kind of hectic sometimes. I usually don't start writing my own blog posts till midnight. I just checked out your youtube channel and girl you can sing! Anyway back to these pictures, I love the first one with the grey cardi. It's such a pretty and soft look and one that suits your personality perfectly. THink I may need to buy that skirt myself too. Hope your week is off to a great start.

  14. You look so gorgeous! I love the look of maxi skirts on other people, but I can't seem to find one that isn't crazy long on me. Your lavender version is stunning and so pretty!

    1. Hey Alyssa! This is actually the first time in my life (I think) that I'm wearing a maxi skirt! I always find the length awkward too and I have a hard time styling it! You should be good with this one though:)!

  29. I love everything about this look! I've been on the hunt for a denim jacket for so long, but haven't had any luck yet. Also, I am a sucker for purple so I'm incredibly tempted to buy that skirt. Besides the static cling you mentioned, how much do you love it? Do you see yourself wearing it a lot? I'd really appreciate your feedback! Thanks!

    1. Hi Kate! To be honest with you...no...I probably wouldn't see myself wearing it a lot. I have a hard time styling maxi skirts/dresses in general. This particular one happened to work with the shoes I was wearing, but I don't know how it would look with flats (sandals or closed toe). I haven't tried it yet so I don't know. I'm sure it will come in handy during the spring and summer. But it depends on your style. I'm always more comfortable in a pair of jeans;)!

  42. Look at my beautiful friend, holy molly first of all your curly hair looks so rawrrrr secondly how femine yet playful is that pleated skirt in that absolutely girl chic lavender colour. Seriously that is the most beautiful colour I have seen in a long time. I want to have it in my closet too, I think you should put it in a package and send it to me hehehehe ;-)Well and if you do so just add the multi strap heels in it too :-D the design is really unique and eyecatching. I was wondering how the look from aside and clicked on the link. They look pretty high, I would probably walk in it like a stork :-)

    Thank you for your well wishes my sweet Rita, you are the best. It's time to make another music video, I have kinda withdrawings hearing your beautiful voice :-) JUST SAYING but I know you are bussy with work so maybe I am just patient and wait :-)

  52. That lavender color is sensational! Forget about the emeralds and the teals..this is definitely a great, Spring color. I did click on the link to the other blog of the person who styled this skirt. I like how you styled it better because the other colors involved in this outfit all complement the lavender color and are very appropriate for Spring. The lavender skirt looks washed out with all the black on the other person, but that's just my opinion. If it were red or a bolder, brighter color..I could see how all black would work..but this color is too delicate for such a harsh/bold color. Love the heels, good judgement call on getting them! And your hairstyle is great. It's nice to see you experiment with different hairstyles. The soft curls are very appropriate for the rest of the outfit.

    1. Carmen I love these heels, but holy cannoli...I feel like I'm walking on stilts! Ha! They are way too high! It's worth the pain though:)! Btw, I find it so hard to style maxi skirts/dresses...I don't know why! It's just one of those pieces...the length always feels awkward to me and they don't really suit me! Anyways, I really appreciate your feedback (always:))!

  59. Rita, you look beautiful! That skirt is perfect for spring! I can see from the comments above that the sandals are not ideal in terms of comfort, but they are certainly gorgeous! I seriously wish shoes would come in both 3 and 4 inch heel options... I would seriously pay extra to be able to get some shoes with a slightly lower heel!

    1. Stephanie you are so right! I would do the same! I'd be happy with a 3 inch heel or maybe even something with more support on the arch. Some people were born to wear heels....I'm not one of those people! I'm kinda pigeon toed and walk inward, so trying to walk like a normal person in heels...well, it's out of the question! Yes, they are gorgeous, but the arch/heel is too high. But....I guess it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make:)! Thanks for your feedback!
