J.Crew Pleated Midi Skirt

Faux Leather Pleated Midi SkirtWhen I saw that J.Crew came out with a faux-leather pleated midi skirt and that it came in a petite (!), I knew I needed to try it on. I had missed out on the pleated mini skirt awhile back. I loved that they made it available it in a longer length because (1) it feels a little more work appropriate and (2) I already have quite a few black a-line mini skirts.

I wore this look for two fun segments with Channel 12 this morning, talking all about Oscars fashion with Melinda. I’ll share the link on my Facebook and Twitter pages later today once it’s online. Thank you for all of the sweet texts and messages! I hopped right to work after the segment so I wanted something that felt polished yet fun, and I loved the pairing of this fluted top and pleated skirt. I opted for a bold, red lip for an extra pop.

  • Have wagon will travel ❤️ Ainsley has been loving every minute of our trip to visit her cousins.
  • So incredibly excited to share Ainsley’s nursery on @theeverymom today with a fun Q&A! I share more about my career journey, some of my mom hacks and my favorite pieces in her room. It means so much to be featured on one of my favorite sites. I included the link in my bio. 📷 by @quyenhom
  • I think I took 100 pictures and gave her 100 kisses tonight. I was sad I wasn’t the first one to give her a top knot so I made up for it by documenting it at every angle.
  • I got to daycare pickup today and they had given Ainsley her first top knot 😭 We got home, found her favorite animals and I swapped my heels for some sneakers because we needed to take a lap in the wagon before family night. And yes, this is the Target dress from the day I got trapped in the store because of a torrential downpour outside. I was wearing a white linen top and desperately needed something to cover up my now see-through shirt and was already running late for a meeting. I also had to purchase an umbrella and rain boots. I wore this dress over my jeans and top and am now challenging myself to see how many ways I can style it. Next up? Layering it with a turtleneck. http://liketk.it/2FCSq #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKbaby #LTKfamily #LTKworkwear #itsbanana
  • Spending my mom’s birthday at one of our favorite places. Her friend owns the farm, and it’s always been special for our family to come here. This was after Ainsley would only nap in my arms this morning (which never happens) so I like to think it was my mom’s way of sending the sweetest hug today.
