This is the outfit I wore on my birthday, and I love it for so many reasons. Unfortunately, I had to work on my birthday, which was a major bummer, but I knew I could make it a great day by wearing a show-stopping outfit. And this get up didn’t sacrifice sexy for a professional look, it harmonized the two to make me feel like the grown up and radiant 27 year old I became that day.
The skirt may look awfully familiar to you, and for a good reason. I have the same Pleather Pleated Skirt in black from Marée Pour Toi! See the post here: THE POCKETS ON THIS BLAZER THO. I first tried Marée Pour Toi, a new plus size brand, this fall, and I instantly fell in love with the fit, quality, and on-trend pieces they offered. So I doubled down and got this Washed Silk Charmeuse Bow Blouse and the Olive Pleather Pleated Skirt. Needless to say, I felt like a goddess all day, as I should on my birthday! I adore the pleats on this skirt as well as the thick insulation on the inside that keeps me warm during chilly Chicago days. I am also rather charmed by the tie neck on this unbelievably soft charmeuse blouse and the sleeve cuffs are also cute and intricate. I topped off the look with some black booties, and slayed the day!
