Move Over, Tulle Skirt

As much as I love a good tulle skirt, they aren't the most practical of items. I don't know about you, but my life isn't filled with many occasions where I don't feel just a little ridiculous in a giant, puffy skirt. Enter, the pleated maxi skirt. It adds instant glamour, like the tulle skirt, but in a more grown up, less girly way. I like to think of the pleated maxi as the sophisticated older sister of the tulle skirt. I'd been dying to add one of these to my wardrobe for a very, very long time and when I saw this blush pink one, I just couldn't say no. The quality is amazing and the price tag is super low. I can see the internal debate that I'll be having every Sunday when deciding what to wear to church.
Me: How about the pleated maxi?
Practical me: But you wore that last week.
Me: But it's insanely pretty.
Practical me: You still wore it last week.
Me: Yes, but not with a lace top... or a blazer... or a turtleneck.
Practical me: What's with your obsession with turtlenecks? It's still a no.
Me: But it's silky. None of my other skirts are that silky.
Practical me: Just wear one of your bazillion other skirts. Or what about a dress?
Me: Shut it, practical me. You just don't get me.
Yep, that's exactly how it's going to go.
