The Pleated Maxi Skirt - Sensible Stylista

The Pleated Maxi Skirt

I know it's Workwear Wednesday and all, but I totally forgot to take an office-friendly look for you guys!  I'm so sorry - I hope you're not too disappointed.  I'll make sure to style something extra cute next time.  I'm really excited for today's post though because *drum roll please* it's the first time I've EVER worn red lipstick (!!!!)

I know it's ridiculous, but I've always shied away from it.  Red's such a bold lip color, and honestly, I didn't have the confidence to pull it off!  That all changed though.  Now I'm all about being ballsy with my makeup.  I'm gonna rock the dramatic cat eye and bold lip like a pro! For those of you wondering, my lipstick's from NYX. I'm such a huge fan of their line!  I swear by their super skinny markers, mega shine lip glosses, matte lipsticks, and concealer.

Anyways, back to my OOTD.  I centered my look around my pleated maxi skirt.  I picked it up at Charlotte Russe for $10 a few months ago.  Yay for blowout sales!  I styled it with a crisp button-front to keep things classy, and accessorized with a fun bag and a flashy necklace for extra personality.  TIP:  When there's a lot going on with your outfit, I recommend sticking with nude heels.  You get extra points for shoes that match your skin tone because they'll elongate your legs like whoa!
A closer look at my necklace courtesy of t+j Designs.  This stunning choker, originally $68, is currently on sale HERE for $26.  It's 15" long and lies flat on your neck.  The pave crystals are mesmerizing - they sparkle so beautifully in the light!  Make sure you guys take advantage of their friends & family sale.  Use code FF302015 to get an extra 30% off your order.  Also, enjoy free domestic shipping on orders $20+.
