Living Up to Its Name

What better way to honor the name of this blog than by wearing something pleated. I'll answer that: there is none. So without further ado...OOTD.

Here is the skirt I blogged about last week that I was concerned might not fit due to it's "petiteness." Luckily...

It did!

ASOS PETITE Pleated Midi Skirt in cafe creme, $60.34, www.asos.com
Target Xileration tee, no longer available
Target belt, $22.99, Target stores
Target earrings, $7.99, Target stores
Lucky Brand Meghan sandal in dark latte, $74.25 on sale, www.zappos.com

Okay, enough about pleats.

July moved into August rather quickly this year, as it seems to every year. August is following suit by breezing by at rapid fire pace, which always makes me think of fall. Football games, dog days turning into chilly evenings, mellowcreme pumpkins, leather boots...and fall fashion. Summer is probably my favorite time of year (for obvious reasons), but fall comes in a close second. If it didn't signify the end of summer, it'd probably be my favorite season. Fall fashion, on the other hand, is my favorite fashion. Maybe it's the childhood memories of new school clothes that raises in me a giddy anxiety for new trends and new options for my wardrobe. It seems that fall always brings about a change in the tide of fashion, if you will.

While munching on mellowcreme pumpkins this fall, I will be bedecked in bell bottom jeans (I have yet to find the perfect pair), sturdy leather boots (searching for the ideal vintage Frye boots), pretty blouses, pointed toe pumps and blazers. I will also carry over my midi skirts and nude shoes, as these are classics that transition well from summer to fall.

Here are some more pieces I've got my eye on:
