my outfit in pleated skirt with knitted sweater

I want to wear my pleated skirt every day!

Well, not really though. And I know you have seen this skirt before here and here. And I love it styled like today the best! With the pink details, gray and pink compliment each other so well. I was just browsing the internet to see whether the pleated skirt trend continues into Spring. I actually regret that I have not bought a metallic pleated skirt this season, and now it feels like to late. But if they are still trendy next season, I will buy another one. In a spring color or a beautiful print. Vogue and Elle don’t mention the pleated skirt at all and so don’t the leading designers but…….drum roll……check this one! New collection! I can totally see myself wearing this one with a red top! Super cool!

Back to today’s pleated skirt.

I love this sweater. I find the color beautiful, you have to watch out that you don’t wear a tint of gray that makes your skin looks the same color! This is a warmer shade of gray. This sweater is a bit crotched and a bit knitted, love the casual look of it. I never wear two shades of gray, but I think it works in this outfit pretty nice, also because I added a bit of pink in it. A very bright color could also work perfectly. Now that I have discovered that wearing socks in open shoes looks nice(in my eyes), I wear it very often. The pink strap has a cute bow detail and the kitschy charm bracelet looks lovely with this outfit. The suède bag with fringe and studs is old but remains trendy!

I wear the scarf and the glooves just for the pictures because they are pink and gray. The scarf I knitted last year, I wanted to find out whether I liked to do that. I never wear it, it isn’t that nice. But to knit was quite relaxing, of course I only know one stitch, the most simple one! But for someone who can relax bad, it is quite fun to do.

    I like the socks with those booties….that would allow me to wear my open toed booties even now that it’s freezing out!! Thanks for the idea, Nancy!
    I didn’t know that you knit!! Now you can learn to purl and so many other stitches. It’s so easy with you-tube!! I think your scarf is wonderful—we all hate our first projects, but with practice, it gets better!!

      No no, Jodie! I just knitted this one and one other scarf. Nothing else! Haha, but about the socks, I love peeptoes and it is such a shame to not wear them in winter! And now we can!

    I love your skirt, I love pleated skirts and with this long and this flight. Such a feminine and elegant garment. Nice jersey and beautiful shoes. A beautiful look, very chic, very nice and with the style I like, this delicate vintage air so elegant.

    • January 17, 2017 / 9:55 am

      Thank you very much Josep! I also love the pleated skirt, like you said, it is such a elegant garment.

    I do like both the skirt and the bracelet. Beautiful combination of colours:gray and cream colours go very nice together…
    Have a wonderful day!

      Thank you Dan! Have a great day!

    • January 17, 2017 / 1:55 pm

      Thank you Rena! Do you also love the pleated skirt?

  6. January 17, 2017 / 1:49 pm

    Toffe outfit, vind de rok en de trui allebei erg leuk en samen staan ze super!

    • January 17, 2017 / 1:54 pm

      Dankjewel! Leuk dat je dat zegt! Ik vind deze combinatie zelf ook erg geslaagd

    • January 17, 2017 / 2:42 pm

      Ja, maar als het weer warmer wordt is ie ook heel leuk met sneakers eronder!

    You know how much I love pleated skirts. This is a perfect look. I don’t know if the skirts are still going to be ‘trendy’ but I will definitely be wearing mine.

    • January 17, 2017 / 10:36 pm

      Its because of you that I love a pleated skirt! We will be seeing a lot of them in coming season! I checked it!

    Nancy, you always look so put together. I love this look. And yes, I love the pleated skirt trend too and I was thinking the same thing, that I should have gone the metallic route and I didn’t. Maybe I’ll find one at a thrift store in a few months. Those are the sort of thing I look for. I love these grays together, as the dark top works with the lighter bottom and the little pops of pink add the perfect touch. Cute booties and socks. You look fabulous. – Amy

      Thank you Amy perhaps you can find a real vintage one in a thrift store!☺ Let me know when you found one!

    Oh Nancy je bent een plaatje! Prachtig!

    • January 18, 2017 / 8:02 pm

      Ha ha, dat is leuk om te horen 🙂 🙂 Dankjewel.

    I love this outfit! I can see why you love the skirt so much (and the one from H & M is really nice, too…). I agree that this look came together perfectly. The grey looks wonderful with the pink accent colors. You look fabulous!

    • January 18, 2017 / 8:04 pm

      Thank you dear Andrea! The one from H&M is gorgeous!

    It’s a pretty skirt, and you can styke it so many ways.
    But, there’s something off with your blog template. I’m reading this on the iphone, and all the pictures except the first do not fit on the page (too large, I can only see the left part of the picture). But if you look at the post on Bloglovin, everything looks fine and the pictures are the right size. I thought I should mention this because you changed templates….

    • January 19, 2017 / 1:51 pm

      Oh thank you so much for mentioning. I think I solved it. I was just mailing with someone who will make a theme for me exactly how I want it. So bare with me for a while!

  14. January 19, 2017 / 4:36 pm

    Loving this slouchy wintertime look! The textures make this neutral palette feel rich and cozy. I just ordered a leather pleated skirt last night in blush pink. I’ll have to try styling it with a sweater and ankle booties! Thanks for the outfit inspiration!

      A leather pleated pink skirt! Wow! Can’t wait to see it!

    Lovely outfit Nancy! I really like the soft colours and the socks with the booties! I don’t think it matters if the magazines are featuring pleated skirts – if you like it, wear it! Thank you for linking up with Style With a Smile 🙂

      Oh you are so right about that! But I never like it to much to own two simular garments! Well…..I have about ten black dresses though……

  16. January 23, 2017 / 2:32 am

    Nice pleated skirt. I’m looking for some for myself too. I didn’t find nothing suitable yet. I love this grey-pink color combo. Thank you for linking up with My Red Carpet.

    This outfit looks gorgeous on you, the tones of grey with the bits of pink? Love it! I never saw anyone wear socks with the peeptoe shoes, it really looks great with the skirt. The shoes are so awesome!

    I think that the bracelet is my favorite part, love the stones and the shapes!

    • January 24, 2017 / 8:41 am

      Thank you! I think I own the bracelet for 20years of so!

    Super cute.. again! En die sokjes erbij… leuk!
