Sun Drenched in Brooklyn

I talked about a pink metallic pleated skirt in a recent blog post, and today I am talking about one that will literally get you through all summer! It is a very neutral color – beige, so it will match with everything without feeling a bit dressed up with the metallic sheen. I told my friend Sandra that I was looking for an affordable beige pleated midi skirt for the summer and she recommended me to check out Uniqlo, which I have not shopped at in the longest time (I bought a cashmere sweater on Black Friday). When I walked into Uniqlo, I was pleasantly surprised. There are SO many trendy and cute pieces now!! I will definitely be going back to pickup some more items because they are all really affordable.

My first outing with this skirt made me fall in love with it. It’s just so… swishy! It is an easy neutral so it will match with pretty much anything, especially during the summer days. I got brunch at Five Leaves (the pancakes are seriously sooo good, see Instagram post) and spent the rest of the day walking around Williamsburg and eventually getting a watermelon from Smorgasburg (see photo at end of the post).

I paired this skirt with a simple white cami top from Express (huge summer sale going on btw). I’ve had this one for two years now, but Express comes out with similar ones every here, so I will link them here and here. I also wore my comfy white sandals from Aldo (also old, similar here and here). The pleated skirt also comes in different colors!

And here are the watermelon photos haha. Isn’t this beach towel / picnic blanket the cutest?
