Pleats & Stripes




Top & Skirt (Limited); Belt (Target); Shoes (Nine West)
Ryan Seidel Photography

Last week I was so jealous of all the cute back to school pictures I saw on facebook... it almost made me want a mini person of my own to dress up!  And while I'm no longer in school, that did no stop me from doing my own version of back to school shopping :)  And what better way to celebrate a new school year than a pleated skirt?  They were a staple of my grade school years... as were brown bag lunches that included a Little Debbie treat. The holiday themed ones were the best... and nothing beat the Christmas Trees Cakes.

PS. I am currently on the hunt for a mini backpack and doggy polo shirt so that Rex can join the fun next year :)

Awww . . .Little Debbie's! I used to love those snacks. Especially the oatmeal cookies with cream filling. A pleated skirt for back to school is perfect. I love the color of the skirt and the fact that you paired it with a striped top. Super cute! Can't wait to see Rex in a Polo shirt. . .

Alissa said...

Absolutely gorgeous colors together and I love that you put it with a striped top!

I sure do miss back to school shopping too! I did a bit of shopping this weekend too. A pleated skirt is also on my wish list this fall, but I haven't found one I love just yet (not that I've been to very many places). I'll have to check out the Limited--I love yours!

The colour on that skirt is incredible, you know all the girls are going to hate you if you ever turnef up like that. I always wanted brown bag lunches but my parents never had the time so I always had cafeteria food.

This skirt has great movement and is such a nice saturated hue. After the first reference to back to school I thought you might be linking up to Everybody Everywhere (back to school theme this month)...I don't think it's too late; you should!
