Raiding My Sister’s Closet: Wardrobe Workhorse – Box Pleat Skirt

Here’s #2. 
I have two of these box pleat skirts (the first one I’ve had for about three years, and I still wear it frequently). 
This one is new as of a few months ago, and I can’t get enough of it.  

Red is one of my favorite colors to wear because it goes with just about everything, and works for every season.

And this style of skirt is universally flattering, and is easy to dress up or down.

I wore this outfit for one of the dress-up nights on our cruise. And I only got to wear it for about forty minutes, because my children wanted to go to bed immediately after eating their chicken fingers. (In fact, Ella was so exhausted, she didn’t even want dessert, which as never happened in the entire history of parenting her).

Skirt: Corilynn // Top: c/o SheInside 
Necklace: Hand-me-down from Merrick // Shoes: Ross

But it doesn’t have to be quite so dressy either. I love the summery feel of this outfit.

Skirt: Corilynn // Top: Kohl’s
Earrings: Claire’s // Shoes: Old Navy (similar)

P.S. This skirt and the striped one are from Corilynn (I won both of them in giveaways, three years apart!) and I met her in real-life in January, and she’s just as delightful as you’d imagine. She’s doing a Kickstarter project for her new line of gorgeous dresses, so if you’re in the market for a beautiful American-made dress or skirt, check it out. I’m seriously dying over the Capri dress.

    I love that skirt paired with the chambray! Although there is something about the American in me that loves all red, white, and blue combos!
