The weather in San Diego has been a bit wonky the past few months, cold days and warm days, then rain, rain, rain!! Last week when we had spring weather, I had an event at the Estancia in La Jolla for the San Diego Magazine Brunch event. I pulled out this pink pleated midi skirt I had picked up recently at Forever 21. This spring, nothing says “hello” to the new season like pink…and why not pink with pleats!?
I wanted to look effortlessly sexy in something simple yet fresh, but all without trying too hard.
I took this trendy pleated pink skirt and added a few closet staples to create a fun look that felt cute, clean and classy – perfect for a brunch event (among other things)!
For shoes, I chose patent peep toe (I found these a while back and they are a serious closet staple – a nude heel of any kind). I’ve linked some other options below.
Speaking of a closet staple, I suggest finding a classic denim coat you can keep for a while, mine is actually from old navy and I’ve had it for years! I have also linked a few similar below (both the heels and jacket were under $40 each)!
You don’t have to spend a fortune to collect your closet staples, I suggest finding things you like that can be timeless.
I styled the skirt with a form-fitting simple white tank (tuck it in to keep the focus on the skirt). Then for fun, I added the double strand pearls and a denim coat to keep it casual but cute!
3 tips to make simple pieces (YOUR CLOSET STAPLES!) stand out:
I hope this gives you some style ideas for spring! You can also pair this outfit with a simple white cardigan or a nude heel that doesn’t have a peep-toe if you want. Personally, I prefer to wear a heel with this skirt based on the length but you can wear a sandal for a more casual look. It would be perfect look for a wedding/baby shower, afternoon party, and many more events.
I had such a good time at the San Diego Magazine Brunch Event at the Estancia, if you are in the area and can attend I HIGHLY suggest it. About 30 local restaurants show up and make a little dish to hand out at their booth and share while you drink beverages and listen to live music with about 200 other friends. There was everything you could imagine; frittatas, cinnabuns, french toast, rancho hueveros, donuts with COTTON CANDY on top (omg) and much more! This was the perfect outfit for the event!
Here’s your Bicoastal Beauty Tip of the week: I love gel nails but every few months I need to take them off and take a break with regular polish. To make your manicure last, apply a thin layer of clear every two days. Pay particular attention to the free edge at the top of your nails, where chips usually happen, and apply extra clear polish there.
