Happy Hump Day Y’all! Firstly, I am adding more skirts to my wardrobe and am having fun styling them in different ways. Today I’m sharing this must-have floral pleated skirt in teal. I love the big floral pattern because it’s such a statement. Lined and made of a beautiful satin-like thick fabric, this floral pleated skirt is the epitome of feminine. The hem hits just below the knee on me, which is extremely elegant. Plus, this skirt fits me without any alterations! For reference, I’m 5’3 and wearing size XXS. Since this skirt has a nice flare silhouette, the styling opportunities are endless. I previously styled it with a plain white top for a fancier look on Instagram. This floral pleated skirt can easily be something you wear to a night out or fancy affair, too. While it is a dressier piece, I am styling it more casually here.

Secondly, spring in Coastal Virginia can be chilly or quite hot. Due to storms, it’s chilly. Therefore, I am turning to some fun sweaters and pullovers, including this pink one. If it looks familiar, it’s because I have a black and white version. While it’s one of my favorites, the fabric is a little thin. So when I saw this sweater pop up online in a pretty pink, I had to snatch it up! It comes in black with white lettering, too. Most of all, I love the saying on this sweater. “Eat Well, Work Hard, Love Truly, Travel Often.” While the message is rather simple, to me it has huge weight.
