My mom always had an admiration for pleated skirts. She’ll gracefully pair one with a tucked-in blouse, strappy sandals, and pulls off her signature look each time.

For this year’s holiday wardrobe, I wanted to be ahead of the game. Last year, I was struggling to fit in maternity-wear. I was 8 months pregnant and Leo was just about ready to greet the world.

When I spotted this metallic number, I decided to take a page out of my mom’s book. I loved the fact that the pleats were in the form of a dress as I always struggle to match anything with a single skirt. The flow is magical and forgiving to my postpartum body. I love how it follows that metallic trend that’s been popping up in holiday lookbooks everywhere.

Most importantly, I’m happy that I found my outfit well ahead of schedule. The holidays get stressful as it is; your holiday wardrobe shouldn’t be a hassle, but something to feel beautiful in.

  1. That’s a very beautiful outfit. I think it looks great on you. I just love how classy it looks and the color is beautiful too.

  2. I really love that dress! The length is perfect – and who doesn’t love pleats! I still have to get my outfit for the hubby’s work party. This would be perfect for it.
