Pleats please!

Top: Willow and Clay // Jeans: 7 for All Mankind // Shoes: Kate Spade // Skirt: Ann Taylor

I love a top that I can wear in different ways. As a working professional, I do not get the change to wear casual outfits unless it is on the weekend. I fell in love with the Willow and Clay top because it is so versatile. The pleats on the top are so delicate and light. The twisting in front exposes some of your stomach but not too much in case you are self cautious like I am. Keep in mind that this piece is also one that runs true to size. Details on my two looks can be found below. Happy shopping!
