When Style Compare got in touch with a ‘Pleats’ style challenge I was pretty excited to have a nosey through their site at my options.  There were many!  In the end I wanted to go for something other than the obvious cute, pleated skirt (I already have a couple of those anyway – see here) and I settled on these amazing pants from Asos.

There were remarks about the old Girl Guides uniform when the package arrived at work but I think they rock.  In any case I promise that I will do my best…  They must be worn with confidence and ideally a little bit of midriff but I am so in love with the shape, they’re just so… w i d e!  This look also gave me the perfect excuse to bust out all the new straw in my closet.

Check out the other blogger ‘pleat’ looks here and vote for your favourite!  Or, ya know, vote for me…


Happy 4th of July to all my lovely readers who are celebrating this holiday!  I’m even wearing white and blue (and red lips) just for you.x
