Hello! It’s that time again. Summer is flying by and fall clothes are upon us. I admittedly wasn’t blown away by a lot of the latest new arrivals, and I did skip a lot of things to try because I know that I won’t wear them. At this point, I am focused on rebuilding some wardrobe basics for fall, but a few things ended up surprising me when I stopped in to my store for try-ons.
The first of the surprise “loves” for me was the Collection Pleated Skirt in Natural Denim with Leather.
Shoes: Audrey Flats in Suede
My SA handed me the skirt to try and I wrinkled my nose at her. Mmm…not sure about this one. But then I put it on and was pleasantly surprised. I am wearing an 8 in this photo but had some room in the waist so would go with a 6 which is my dress /non-pencil skirt size. I tried it on with a V-neck cross front bodysuit (also comes in grey, don’t see it on the website yet, item number is G8312 and it is $49.50) and am wearing a small in that which is true to size with my top size. I like how the skirt is styled on the website with a higher neck black top and one of the SAs had this exact outfit on with the suede Colette heels and I was in love. The buttons are still covered in the photo from the packaging but they’re black and the leather trim is a beautiful detail. The paper bag waist can be a hit or miss depending on the rest of the garment but the effect on this one is immediately slimming. I may have already caved and ordered this one.
