Pleats on repeat

Hello world outside my window,
and thank you for joining me for a little while!

Currently I am switching out my winter clothes for spring    
It has been an unusually chilly April here, and I keep having to delve back
 into the packed up winter clothes for something warm to wear,
so progress is a little slow

The warm weather will come and we will be released from isolation, so
 I am planning outfits for that time 
 It will be great to have these already coordinated and ready to wear
when the time comes to be out and about again!

This first outfit consists of  
 a sweet cropped floral print blouse with puffy elbow length sleeves 
 I bought it back in February and haven't worn it yet

Sleeve details are all over the internet, if not all over town! 
Worn with remixed ivory pleated midi skirt

Lively fuchsia and orange print on the blouse

Carrying my bright pink chain handle bag with stylized bow

For jewelry, a mixed metal butterfly necklace
and gold tone bow bracelet with my trusty square stud earrings
I love that these earrings seem to always look right
and harmonize with lots of other jewelry 

Bright pink kitten heel slides to finish this spring-y look

Next is a shirtwaist style dress in a melon color with a tiny white polka dot print
The dress has a pleated skirt and pretty smocked sleeve ends
I paired it with a white eyelet blazer

Carrying a tan faux woven box clutch

Chunky gold tone link bracelet 
and double entwined circle earrings for jewelry

Cork wedge heel sandals to finish the outfit
 These are leaving my closet, as they hurt my feet
 and the extra skinny ankle strap makes them hard to walk in
What was I thinking?  My logical brain was taken over with cork love! 

Previous pleats from back in January
before the earth tilted on it's axis

Plaid and pleated

Carrying a pale pink structured handle bag

with a square disc choker and gold bar and leather bracelet for jewelry

Black leather wide strap low heel pumps to complete the look
These are comfortable to wear, and are packed away to enjoy next fall

Project in process...

Hope everyone has a good week-
thanks for stopping by!


  1. These are such great outfits on you, so pretty and feminine! I love the colours in the last one especially, definitely my favourite of the three :)

    Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup!

    Hope your week is off to a good start :)

    Away From Blue

  2. Pretty pleated skirt and the melon dress is a lovely color. Pity about the cork wedges but been there and know your pain! Nice to see you again at #WowOnWednesday.

  3. I think the last look is my favorite. I don't wear pleats much as they accentuate my belly pouch but you wear them quite well!

  4. Loving all of these looks you put together! So perfect for Spring. The first one is my favorite!

  5. These are all lovely outfits - love the pink and soft pink Hun. Jacqui x

  6. I like the pleated theme you've got going.
    And OMG your boxing looks so organised :)
