Hello lovelies ! Thank you so much for your support and warm thoughts . Last week was rough, very rough. But today is brighter, and though the air is chilled, the sky is bright.
That is why, today, I am featuring a kaleidoscope printed and pleated skirt from Glancez .
You might remember that I wore this same pleated skirt last summer , with a bell sleeved blouse and strappy sandals. A shot below from that post .
The skies are still blue, but when I wore it last week, I wore this pleated skirt in a winterized version.
I loved the drape of this skirt and how it catches and cascades in the wind. This pleated skirt, in this cheerful print , is a year round pleasure to wear. Adding boots, a sweater, a snood and a faux fur vest, made this perfect for this fifty-something day.
I wore a sweater with a metallic striped bow, that takes a nod from Gucci. It, and its coordinating snood, comes from Jacadi , an upscale clothing company for children , made in Paris. I used to shop there for my daughter, eons ago, and still shop there for myself. The quality is excellent, and the styling very sophisticated, especially when considering it is for young girls. For less than $50 it is a great value!
It was fun taking this colorful pleated skirt and wearing it for a cold day. I can imagine it too, with a long faux fur coat that I gently bought in a pale color, a mix of celadon green and straw. Since the pleated skirt trend is so popular, it is good to get a lot of wear from each one.
When I love something, I wear it often. Below, you see it again, in an eclectic mix of ruffled cardi, beaded belt and a tee that reads:” girls will save the future “. I actually believe that. More estrogen in this complex political arena? Yes, please ! But I digress…
Or do I. I do think that women should be better represented in powerful positions, in both business and politics. The world would be safer and governed better, if there were more discourse and a range of personalities and steady temperaments, too…
Do you agree? Should women have a stronger voice in government ? And another less monumental question: do you wear a printed, pleated skirt year-round like this, or would you wear a skirt like mine in the summer months only? When you buy something that you love, do you try to incorporate it into your wardrobe for year round wear?
It seems possible now, with trends being –uhm–loose- as one can wear a slinky slip dress, with a sweater under it, with textured tights, boots and a furry coat. Ah, the eclectic mix; a trend that resonates with me to my core! Life -and wardrobes- are better with different components, a bit of clashing and diversity. That is where true balance is created to stay.
Yes? No? Let me know your thoughts. I value your comments and insight!
