Welcome, May.

Feminine yet playful, pleats are a skirts most flattering companion.

I've often looked at perfectly pressed pleats, like the ones found on my recent Tory Burch find, and wondered how they stay put. Despite fluttering daintily in the wind, their folds end up right back in their place. They're subtly secure.

Kind of like the month of May. The rain so common in April starts to flutter here and there and eventually subsides. Clouds break and the sunshine appears as a reliable friend once again.

May holds the unwavering promise of warm days ahead. This month and I are going to get along just fine.

  14. Pretty thing! I'm loving that skirt - I kept almost splurging on a Tory Burch beauty when they kept having mega sales and I never did. Now I'm living in regret, haha.

    Can't wait to see you in 4 short days!

  20. A really feminine outfit and the soft pink is my favourite shade. It's just too cold here in the UK to wear lightweight spring outfits!
