Dinner Date

I generally stick to pencil skirts, but when I saw that this pleated skirt was on super sale, I decided to give it a go.  I thought it would be perfect to pair with my heart sweater to wear out to dinner.

  6. omg Tara! I have that same skirt from Loft for a year now and it's sitting in my closet haven't been worn yet. I got it on super sale too. Now I got another outfit idea. It would also look cute with different length blazers and camis, fitted button up w/ belt etc. Why haven't I worn this yet? lol
