STYLE GURU STYLE: Pleated in Pink

Happy spring fellow Fashionistas and Fashionistos! Finally, the sun is shining and flowers are starting to bloom again. Now that spring is in the air, I am so excited to pull out (of the dust) my floral and bright colored tops and dresses. Spring makes everything better and brings more color out that has been hiding from the cold winter for many months. However, I do go to school in Ohio and we all know that it can be 70 degrees one day and the next back down to 40 degrees. With that being said, I knew I had to pull out a spring styled outfit before the sun disappears again.

I got this pink pleated skirt from Abercrombie & Fitch for Christmas and I am obsessed with it. Let’s just stare at the color for a few moments, isn’t it gorgeous? This pastel pink is my newest obsession that I even got a matching pink sweater, also from Abercrombie & Fitch, so I could wear the two together for a monochromatic look. Monochromatic is one of my favorite trends and was seen all over the runways for fall/winter 17/18.

I decided to pair the skirt with a cream mock-necked turtleneck from American Eagle Outfitters. The sweater and skirt are both very simple yet statement pieces for any Fashionista’s wardrobe. I find that buying versatile, simple, statement pieces for my wardrobe is really beneficial. I am able to pair almost anything with this pleated skirt for any spring look. I love layering statement pieces with simple pieces to keep the look easy and effortless.

I’ve had this hat for a while now and I finally decided to pull it out and style it. I was inspired by many bloggers wearing all different kinds of hats so I thought I’d join in. To finish off my look completely, I added my favorite booties from Urban Outfitters, they are snake print and very comfortable. I cannot wait to pair this skirt with everything in my closet this spring!
