Pleats On My Shoulders



Blazer Vince, Top and Skirt Zara, Tights American Apparel, Heels Michael Kors, Watch Michael Kors, Ring UO

I love learning how to do fun things with my hair. I saw a picture of this "Milk Maid" hair style and instantly wanted to try it on myself. It is so simple and easy to do! Just part your hair down the middle, make two braids, and then lay them over your head over-lapping one another and bobby pinning. I was in much need for this new Zara skirt that I picked up when I was in San Francisco this weekend. I didn't have a green skirt and this shade is one of my favorites. I wanted it to be the main color of my outfit so I paired it will a neutral top and some black accessories. These American Apparel tights are my absolute favorite tights in the whole world. They have little hearts on them (if you can't tell) and I try and wear them as much as possible.

The skirt is gorgeous, I have the same one in the same color and is one of my fav for the season. Love how you've paired it with the neutral top!

Madeleine Roberts said...

I saw your pic on Chictopia and I was so impressed with your style --I had to check out your blog. As I mentioned I just adore this look. It is just amazing. I love how you paired the green with a neutral but added little fun touches like the tights with the little hearts. And the way you styled your hair really finishes off the overall look. As said before perfection from head to toe :)
