Summer is on its way and so is the time for gorgeous summer clothing. Usually I would wait till summer to wear a dress like this but it was too hard to resist. Pleated dresses or skirts are a great option for summer, they are light and breezy which makes them a summer style staple. Pleated dresses are also very easy to style, or may I even say they don't really need any styling. You can just wear them as it is and be pretty in pleats. I would suggest go easy on your accessories too when wearing a pleated dress, a simple one-strand neck-piece or small earrings should do the trick. On the other hand, if you have a pleated skirt, feel free to experiment. So if you're looking for low-on-maintenance yet high-on-style kinda clothing, pleated dresses are a good option to have.
BTW, did I mention it was my birthday last Monday (21st March) and the pictures are from a little shoot we did that day. Does anyone have mixed feelings about birthdays or is it just me? I definitely don't think birthdays are overrated because I believe they give you another reason to celebrate yourself and have fun. But I do think that every time I hit the milestone, I find myself pondering over life, which is not a bad thing but it does get stressful at times. On one hand, I am all happy and like 'yay! it's my birthday' and on the other, I'm like 'OMG! I'm getting older by the day, there are so many things to do and I haven't done anything'! Does anyone else go through the same dilemma? If you don't, good for you and if you do, don't go stressing like me, just remind yourself to be happy and think about the things you've achieved in the last one year and if some things are still missing, make a plan and start working on it. Well, that's what I am doing and it doesn't seem so bad to me. :)
