Is it just me or are these two pieces EVERYWHERE right now?! I keep seeing pleated skirts & bomber jackets styled in different ways & it makes me want to wear them all day every day in a different way. I've seen pleated skirts styled with classic button downs, casual tee shirts & sporty sweatshirts while bombers have been through over dresses, jumpsuits & jeans. It seems almost impossible to find a bad way to style a pleated skirt or a bomber.

Believe it or not, today's post is actually slightly St Patrick's Day inspired! I'm not Irish & green isn't my favorite color, so I went for a more subtle forest green shade but I still think this bomber jacket is a great piece for this week to nonchalantly dress in the spirit of St. Patrick. Adding green to my look was surprisingly easier than I had originally thought because there are so many different shades. Looking back, I wear green more often than I realized: in a statement coat, an olive dress, a pencil skirt, even a jumpsuit.
