Pleat-ty Please!

Denim jacket: Vintage Levi’s // Sparkly tank: Silent + Noise // Pleated skirt: F21 // Boots: gifted 80%20 // Clutch: Vintage
earrings + studded belt: F21 // Sheer socks: DIY
A pleated skirt was something I always had on my wish list but was always unsuccessful in
finding one. Browsing through f21 the other day, I accidently came across one and knew it was
meant to be. It’s just one of those classic pieces you just need in your wardrobe. I decided
to dress it in a more edgier way because this kind of skirt can look kinda grandma-ish…
so I had to freshen it up!
My hair is up!! I’m going to try having it up more often, its easy and it adds a twist to
my overall outfit which i love,
what do you guys think?
*On my previous Dots post, a lot of people were asking about the sweater! Yes! Its F21!
It’s from their Love21 Contemporary line, tried looking for it online a couple days ago for you guys
but I guess they didn’t have it up yet?
Thank you guys for the get well wishes! I’m almost there!

    i love everything about this outfit! that top is really pretty and so is the skirt..i want to find a long sheer pleated skirt to add to my collection! those shoes are really awesome too! oh, if you are going to be putting your hair up you should try the goody spin pins, they work great! :)

    I’ve never been crazy about 80%20 shoes but these are pretty awesome, I kind of love them

  7. soph (owl vs. dove) Comment #7

    Love how you’ve styled the pleated skirt here. I tend to take the more grandma-ish route when I wear mine haha. Your hair looks great up!

  8. alannah. Comment #8

    ooh love this look jules. youre so lucky to have a f21! we dont have one in aus & as much as its great searching online its not the same as browsing through racks & trying things on!
    love how you put the edge on it, it really works & your tied up is beautiful.
    i have very similar earrings!x

  9. Maria Comment #9

    I really love all the details in this outfit, while maintaining quite a beautiful simplicity. I’ve been a long time subscriber but I don’t often comment, but I really LOVE this outfit!

  12. Michelle Elaine Comment #12

    how’re the socks a diy? were they hose & you cut them??

    i really need to find myself some boots like that!


  13. Nita -Karoliina Comment #13

    The skirt looks good on you and you should wear your hair up more often :)

  14. Shell Taylor Comment #14

    Hey Jules, love that skirt and how you have dressed it with denim and boots! Your blog is great! Keep it up! I recently started my own thebluueroom.blogspot.com check it out, I hope you like it. Have a great weekend xx

  15. gabrielle Comment #15

    love your hair up! i actually am going to use it as inspiration when i go later this month for a dye job. love the color!


  16. paperwhales Comment #16

    I love, love, love that skirt. I think I’ll add that to my F21 cart now. I bought a grey pleated F21 skirt, but the double layering of this one is so pretty. Must buy! Because I completely agree with you that it’s classic.


  17. bravegrrl Comment #17

    love your hair up! cute! and that jacket… pulls it all together :)

  18. Emma (Scrapbook de la Emma) Comment #18

    You look fantastic! The hair looks great up! And I loved how you styled the skirt, the denim allows the edginess to be day wear, but with it off, you look like you’re going out on the town! Great post :)

  20. Jay Comment #20

    Amazing outfit :)


  21. Flor de Maria Fashion Comment #21

    Please do a hair tutorial! How did you do this updo? It’s perfect! And how get those perfect waves in your Dots post? Your hair is just too fab. :)

  27. Vivian Comment #27

    LOL- So I’m going to be totally creepy and leave another comment but after spending wayy too much time browsing through your blog, I have to say I love the fact that you can make normal (read: affordable/f21) clothes look amazing and that your entire closet isn’t made up of gifted designer clothes like most other bloggers. Your style is so inspiring and refreshing. Thank you for being real!

  28. Connie Comment #28

    Love, love, LOVE everything about this look.

  33. Maryjane Comment #33

    I love pleated skirts! Espcially black, and you show how to do it casually. I didn’t think that would work, and it does!

    Maryjane xoxo

  40. JULIE ILIANA Comment #40

    aw! I think your hair looks nice up or down.. your just lucky to have long pretty hair! :( I got a pixie cut a few months ago and I totally regret it now AND I’m in the “awkward stage” of growing it out. gross!

    anyway, love the jean jacket + the whole outfit! :)
