Fashionable Friday: Fashionspiration for FALL!

There’s one fashion trend this fall that is just popping up EVERYWHERE on the ol’ blogosphere.  I think most (if not all) of my favorite bloggers have featured it in their outfit posts at one point.. and I am 100% on board. Maybe even obsessed, a little. Maybe.
FALL 2011 FASHIONSPIRATION:
A longer, pleated skirt, usually paired with a cute blouse and a braided, tucked belt.
Sigh. I loves it.
For example, THIS absolute amazingness from A Beautiful Mess.
I looked through my closet and blog archives only to discover that I own nothing even remotely close to this skirt.  Last fall, it was all about dresses, or shorter skirts paired with tights.  The longer skirts that I do own are too professional for class (let’s face it, on days where I show up in even the most casual dress, I field questions of “oh! You look nice! Where are you off to today?” from everyone I know.. as if I don’t wear dresses all.the.time.), or.. well, just ugly.
So, next on the thrifting list (and hopefully I’m going tomorrow): a longer pleated skirt!  It’s obvious that this is a must-have item for this fall.  Still don’t believe me?  Well, maybe you’ll believe the experts:
From Kendi of Kendi Everyday, paired with a nicer top and some adorable pumps:
From my absolute favorite styler of this skirt, Megan of Feathers and Freckles, who repeatedly knocks this look out of the park.  I love how she makes it work with anything– from boots, to wedges, to a casual t-shirt and flats:

From Tania of What Would a Nerd Wear (love her blog’s name, too!):
Slightly different, but similar, from Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky:
Adorably ’50s, from Keira of A Pretty Penny, whose outfit here first caught my eye and kept me on the lookout for the trend coming from all my other favorite blogs:
And one last one from Elsie of A Beautiful Mess:
So, there you have it, my current obsession/ Fall Fashionspiration! Hopefully coming soon from Musings as well.  Which beautiful blogger do YOU think styled the look best?

  1. YES. I've been seeing these everywhere and I have like 10 long skirts sitting in my closet back at home from back in the day just waiting for me to bring them out for this trend.
