Dressing Down A Pleated Midi Skirt

There's something so feminine about a pleated midi skirt that naturally makes me want to dress it down.  When getting ready in the morning, I instinctively reached for this Guns and Roses t-shirt and old skool vans to pair with this pleated midi skirt for todays post. Both a rock tee and vans are the perfect duo when I want to dress anything down and make it look more casual. This style of skirt has been popping up everywhere as of late and I'm definitely welcoming it with open arms that's for sure. You'll definitely find me doing a bit too much swishing and twirling when I'm wearing this number but quite frankly I just can't seem to help myself. 

As well as my new found love for the pleated midi skirt, I'm also obsessing over all things embroidery. Gucci have paved the way for all things embroidered this season and I've seen so many versions hit the high street already that it's becoming seemingly more difficult to choose my favourites. So naturally when I laid eyes on this embroidered biker jacket it was love at first sight. I mean just look at that detailing. Not only is it covered with embroidered floral goodness it also features studs to toughen it up and steer this jacket away from being too girly. That's my kind of jacket if you ask me. It's definitely time to start thinking about transitional outerwear as the weather starts to get cooler and I know with certainty that this beauty won't be leaving my back over the next few weeks. Are you as in love with it as I am? More importantly how would you style it for an everyday look?
