Compleat Me

Two piece pleated set: Princess Polly
'Daniella' ankle boots: c/o Linzi Shoes
Bag: Colette by Colette Hayman

I think I've rekindled my love for pleats recently- something about their movement, femininity and fierce resilience to folds and wrinkles has mesmerised me once again. I couldn't help but purchase this little two piece set from Princess Polly during Vogue's online shopping night last month. Matching sets always have this ability to convince me anything's a good deal- I can wear this like a one piece playsuit, or the top and shorts separately with other clothes.

I love taking photos in this little garden spot- my boyfriend always gets the lighting right and I especially love how it highlights the softness of the pleats. I have to say I am really enjoying slowing down with the blogging and social media these days. When I first started blogging I didn't intend to start getting overwhelmed with brand sponsorships, post deadlines and pressure for self-promotion. It was all about having fun with photography, styling outfits, connecting with like-minded people in the community, and working with select brands that I just adore. I feel like I am getting back to that now, and I'm really enjoying it.

I think these little ankle booties from Linzi are going to come a loong way with me from season to season. They look great with bare legs and a summery outfit, just as much as with jeans and several layers on top! The punch hole pattern is dainty and feminine and the block heel makes these boots so comfy.

Have a look at some other lovely ankle boot choices:
Sam Edelman Taye booties in Golden caramel / See by Chloe Jamie booties / Jeffrey Campbell Cromwell suede booties in taupe
Club Monaco Brooklyn booties in black / Aquazurra Downtown booties / Jerome Dreyfuss Patricia booties

It might seem crazy to take neutral shades very seriously- but it sure becomes important when you start looking for that precise colour to match your neutral bag or accessories! Sam Edelman sure know how to put out a stylish boot, and this soft golden caramel shade is sure to be flattering on anyone. A grittier colour in khaki/ taupe like these ones from Jerome Dreyfuss and Jeffrey Campbell also add a bit of edge. You can find a whole haven of stylish ankle booties from Shopbop here.

And if you can't get enough of pleats like me, here are some more pretty pleated picks below:
Alexander Wang pleated off shoulder top / Club Monaco pleated skirt in gold / Line & Dot Amelie pleated dress / ALC Bobby skirt in rose gold

Pleats are hot right now and even more so in metallic form- this skirt from Club Monaco is sure to turn heads in a beautiful green-gold shade. This skirt from ALC in slightly thicker accordion pleats and a striking rose gold shade, will also make a dramatic entrance!
