sweet and simple

The Steele Maiden: Sweet and Simple
While I'm all for a colorful look, sometimes sweet and simple outfits can have an equal impact.  Especially when mixing textures and interesting silhouettes.  I first tried the pleated midi skirt look last Fall and when I came across this camel colored version from Scissortail Clothing I knew it would be the perfect update as we head into Spring.  I love the balance of the long lean lines of the pleats against the slouchy lace top and the rougher braided leather belt.  And while this look works as is, I can't wait to pair this skirt with something like a really bright lightweight sweater or a fun printed blouse.  Either way, this fit the bill for an afternoon roaming along Abbot Kinney - a trendy little street filled with boutiques, shops and restaurants close to Venice Beach for those that have never been.
