How to wear a mint pleated skirt

Even though the flower nurseries have closed up shop for the summer, gardens are in full bloom and so is my closet. A pleated skirt is one of my go-to separates, but at times, I feel like I run out of options. This time, I decided to pair a colour blocked pleated mint skirt with a mirror image floral shirt for a simple, feminine look.

I’m wearing an accordion pleated mint skirt from Simons in Montreal, a floral shirt from H&M, tinkerbell tights c/o nowistyle, a vintage colourblock quilted purse and blush suede pumps from Vince Camuto.
