Fashion - Pleated midi skirt for date night

Hey lovelies,
I'm finally back with my first outfit post of 2017, soz about the delay, what with this shity weather and illness, we just haven't been able to shoot any outfits, but here I am I'm back.
For my first outfit of the year I thought I would show you a cute date night look, one of my New Years goals for this year included going out and having more fun including making more time for date nights with the Mr. You can read all about my other goals here.

I must admit I have been a bit slow on getting on the pleated midi skirt bandwagon, not cause I didn't like them but because I didn't think they would suit me, but I have given it a go and I think I kinda pulled it off?

I picked the skirt up from believe it or not TU at Sainsburys, its called Khaki but it has almost a metallic look to it, it also comes in Navy if this colour is not your bag. 

The quality of the skirt is lovely and I prefer the stretch waistband rather then a fiddly zip, the metallic look makes it appear more expensive then its £18 price tag! I know right its a bit of a bargain. 
I decided to keep the top half of this outfit quite plain, not wanting anything taking away from skirt, so decided to go for this blush pink ruffled shoulder top from boohoo, this to was a total steal at only 12 quid, showing you don't have to spend a ton of money even on a going out outfit.

Footwear wise for me it was a no brainer these zip up stiletto heeled ankle boots* from shoezone's 2015 collection, just work with this outfit saving the midi skirt swapping my short frame and making the whole outfit look more evening appropriate.
