De-Pleated

Office Appropriate Outfits - Spring

After yesterday’s meat extravaganza I was feeling a little, well, ill. Which means I wanted something that was forgiving and loose and easy to wear. Is this my favorite outfit of all time? No. But this skirt was the perfect remedy to feeling bloated from a meat hang over.

I got the idea for this outfit from this photo I pinned over a year ago. Turns out it was so warm today that I didn’t even need the jacket. As for while I was in the office, I also brought a cardigan to wear in case I got chilled. Of course, my boss was so busy today with her own stuff that I don’t think she would have noticed nor cared if I wore my denim jacket all day.

Admittedly, a denim jacket isn’t the most professional topper for work, but sometimes it doesn’t matter. Like the day after you eat and drink way too much and just want something easy.

    A meat extravaganza will definitely do that. I think I’d be wearing the most flowy dress I own, so I’m impressed you’re wearing something with an actual waist band!

    Comfy clothes are such a solid choice for recovering from a food hangover. Even better when the clothes are comfy AND cute! I love that skirt. It looks perfectly twirlable, which is definitely an important element in skirts.

    I love that pleated skirt- so cute with the jean jacket! I was always worried that pleated skirts emphasize the “junk in the trunk” but you proved me wrong! Target has a pleated skirts in a couple colors that I considering now… 🙂

      I think the key is making sure the fabric is nice and thin. If it’s too think the pleats stand out on their own and make you look wider. Admittedly, the first pleated skirt I ever wore took some getting used to, but now I think they are a nice change from pencil skirts.
