Butterfly Maxi Skirt

{top: Chic Wish c/o *Under $40!! // skirt: Chic Wish c/o *Under $60! // earrings: H&M *recent (similar) // heels: Zara (similar) // clutch: vintage (similar) // necklaces: Maya Brenner c/o // watch: Rumba c/o // ring: Bling Jewelry c/o}

I'm all for a dramatic, eye-catching look and one way to do that is with a bold colorful print. If you follow my blog on the regular, then you know I'm a lover of prints. Probably a little too obsessed because the majority of my closet has prints rather than neutrals, and sometimes that can be a challenge when styling an outfit. This skirt doesn't require a busy top, but when you stumble upon red and ruffles you can't say no -- it's perfection. I love this top so much and I know it will look equally great paired down with denim (especially white!). Since my outfit was statement making in itself, I kept the rest of my accessories pretty minimal. Instead of a bold statement necklace I wore my delicate Maya Brenner necklaces (#8 and letter R -- they never come off) and my new fave earrings from H&M (I also have in green -- did you see this post?). I finished off the look w/ a red vintage clutch and this fun Rumba watch w/ an emerald green face -- so pretty and my fave color!

I'm going to start trying out more maxi skirts like this. I'm 5'10, so I can get away with longer skirts but surprisingly this is the first pleated maxi skirt that I own. I did style a pleated midi skirt in an awesome music note print here, but this is even more dramatic with it's longer hemline.

What do y'all think about long pleated skirts? Are you a fan? I love how they hit at the natural waist, so it really helps break up my long torso.
