Pretty Pleats







Top by Bebe (sold out, similar here) | Skirt c/o SheIn | Sareena’s Dress by GAP

We had a lovely staycation at the beautiful Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, Los Angeles. The entire resort boasts of panoramic views of the ocean while spanning over a hundred acres of lush land. Here we are waiting in the gorgeous herb garden while our table was getting prepared at the coveted French restaurant, Mar’sel.

For this outfit, I decided to coordinate this beautiful pleated skirt from SheIn with Sareena’s pleated dress to wear during dinner. My pleated skirt is my current obsession; I love how effortless it is to flow and glide in, all while being the perfect shade of pink. This skirt exudes romance and femininity; my signature style.
