Pleated Maxi Skirt

I have been meaning to test run a pleated maxi skirt for a while now. I have always shied away from said skirt due to there granny lookingness. I definitely think that my 5 ft 3 frame means I have to wear the skirt with a pair of heels, but the plus side of that - it gives the illusion of super tallness!
This past week I have been on the hunt for a new denim shirt, a darker denim, with more of a boyfriend look. I couldn't have been happier when I came across this denim shirt from Next. Just perfect.

i feel the same about maxi skirts because of my height but seeing you in this makes me want one. i might give it a test run too. jas x

I have the opposite issue that im too tall for maxi skirts so its hard to find ones that dont fall into the 'ankle swinger' territory! lol

glad your back, and hopefully feeling better!

Love this look on you. And I don't think it looks grandma-ish! It's dainty and girly, great paired with the light denim top.
