I recently took possession of a maxi pleated skirt, navy blue, all long and flowing, but to my chagrin I've discovered it doesn't really go with any of the tops I thought it would. At least none that is appropriate for the office or without me looking like some 19th century missionary teacher. I eventually checked out some looks online and my favourites were the following:
leather jacket.......I so love this look, its just how I would convince people it's a fashion statement and I'm not crazy is the problem. I did try replacing the leather jacket with a normal work jacket, like Rachel Bilson below, but somehow it didn't work.......
I like the midriff baring top matched with the maxi pleated skirt. The demureness of the maxi skirt paired with the midriff top totally works. Again this is just a wish, because after 2 kids, I doubt anyone (least of all me) wants to see my midriff.
*Word of advice; do not try this look unless you have a super-toned midriff.
I like the effortless look of pairing the skirt with a plain tank top and sandals or flats. Though I've learnt from experience that this look is not so easy to pull off. You could just end up
looking frumpy and lazy, besides its ok for meeting up with your friends but not the work place.
Anyway, after much searching, I realized none of the above ensembles worked for me, so working with what I have, I settled for this look.

Anyway, so I was in the states a few weeks ago and decided to eat at Johnny Rockets (in New Jersey). I ordered the chicken club sandwich, and guess what?? It came with fries......I felt all was right in the universe again.

P.s. I never got to see the staff dance in any of the Johnny Rockets, though the thought of anyone wanting to see these minimum wage earners be humiliated in such a fashion is beyond me.
