. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Pleats & Shoes

May 15, 2012

Pleats & Shoes

skirt: Kohls  shoes & shirt: target  

I've seen a lot of pleated skirts around blogs and pinterest and I think they are so pretty.  I found this one at Kohls the other week and it was only $7.  I debated about buying it for awhile because I think it is a little too close to matching my skin color.  

When my sister is home it is pretty much a given that we will go to Target at least once.  I bought these wedges for $8.  And I bought two more pairs of shoes while she was here. 

The sandals were only $4 and then while we were out of town for the wedding I realized I forgot to pack a pair of flats to wear at the rehearsal.  So I made another trip to Target and bought these leopard flats for $15.  Can't complain about having to solve that problem!


Add up my recent purchases of a skirt and three pairs of shoes and it is only $34. 

I think I need to find a new job as a bargain shopper. 

Now despite the fact that these were all incredibly cheap I should probably stop buying shoes and clothes for awhile.  Not only do I really not need any more shoes, but my closet is running out of space!

I have been seeing pleated skirts around too - I love yours! I was looking for those wedges at Target but they never had my size and I think they may be gone by now.

You seriously need to become a professional bargain shopper. I would pay you to shop for me!!

I think pleats are just classic. Since Kate Middleton brought back nylons and all, you could always wear nylons if you feel the skirt matches your skin tone too much. But it looks great as is too!

Loving this whole look, that skirt is just to die for!

Love the pleated skirt... I am on a mad hunt for one, myself! Target shoes, you realllllly can't beat them. But I totally hear ya on running out of closet space. Husband just made me load stuff into containers to store under the bed! Ha Hope you have a great rest of the week, Katie!

oh I loooove pleats! I'm totally crazy for them. and hey there's always more room in your closet, believe me, when you run out of room that's when you start doubling up on hangers! Some of my poor hangers have 3 items on them ;)
