The pleated skirt made it’s debut last season, but I wasn’t really feeling it. I’m not one to shop based on trends. Trends come and go, so it’s hard to develop a style true to you when you’re always shopping based on someone else’s opinions. Now, that doesn’t mean I won’t get in on a trend here and there, it just has to fit with my personal style. This pleated midi skirt from Zara did just that!
As you can see, we have a lot of snow here in Ottawa. That’s why I pulled out my Madden Girl combat boots. I really love pairing something edgy, like these boots, with something feminine, like the skirt. It’s an unexpected choice but I think they compliment each other really nicely.
Are you a trend-driven shopper or do you stay your own course?
