Summer Pleats

Blouse: thrifted
Skirt: thrifted
Shoes: Naturalizer
Lipstick: Revlon Super Lustrous Crème Lipstick in Certainly Red

A sleeveless blouse and pleated skirt together make me think of early '60s college students. I like how neat and tidy this combination is, while the colors are bold.

I'm on a short vacation from work right now because my office gave everyone the 4th, 5th and 6th off for a super-long weekend. It's pretty awesome. We have a few longer-than-usual holiday breaks like this throughout the year, but the trade-off is that we don't have a lot of PTO days at our discretion.

Aaaand here's an outtake for you where I look like a zombie:


  1. I loooove this outfit! That's one of my favorite color combinations. And it does remind me of a 60s college student!

    Also, yay for super long weekend!

  2. this is certainly one of my favorite outfits of yours. Pink and red were just made for each other :) Have a great long weekend!

  3. yes to the last photo.

    and i have a blouse very very similar to that. and i love the idea of looking like a 60s student.

  4. Love the cute red pleated skirt

  5. I love the combination of a pleated skirt and sleeveless top too! I really like how these colors in your outfit are so similar. The two pieces work so well together!

  6. These colors are beautiful on you! I love anything "fruity" and vibrant during the summer. Also, I am completely smitten with your new blog layout; the background could not be more perfect.

  7. First, I love this. It reminds me of summer fruits and pleats are the greatest ever (unless you're ironing, in which case damn them!)
    Second, I LOVE YOUR LAYOUT! Your background reminds me of that book "The Hundred Dresses" It is so pretty and the banner is so original. LOOKS GOOD! :)

  8. oh, the new layout of the background ist to cute ... awesome idea, girl!!!

    the mix of colours of this outfit is fabulous... reminds me on ice cream!

  9. Oh my goodness, you are so adorable! I love your hair!
