I love your skirt! I can't do long skirts so i like to live vicariously through those who can. It reminds me of Becca's long green skirt!

Pleated flow-y skirts are the only way to beat the heat - aside from standing in front of an open fridge. Such a gorgeous gift you lucky gal.

There are simply not enough pleats in the world. And that pleated skirt goes quite some way towards making up for such deficiency, especially in that gorgeous colour. You look radiant.
