Heavy Weight Pleated Skirt + Cross Front Top

This skirt is a must have for fall! It's a really great value item due to the fact that the fabric is really heavy weight (heavier than ponte and comparable to a neoprene). The site has a couple of things wrong though: the skirt is actually unlined and the waist measurement for an XS is approx 26.5". The skirt sits below my belly button and I'd have preferred it to sit on my natural waist. The hem of the skirt is also unfinished which is fine since knit fabrics don't fray. The back side of the fabric is black so you could see the color peeking through at the bottom.

I'm also loving cross front tops lately. I feel like most knit tops tend to look boring, but the cross front neckline makes it more elegant and sophisticated. I'd describe this top as an elevated and more glam version of a long sleeve t-shirt. I purchase this in store and don't mind the fit at all since I have a long torso, but the site does offer petite sizes.
