I’m not sure how exactly this outfit came together, but after seeing this cute polka-dotted blouse on Forever 21’s website, I had to try it out. As I said before, I don’t often have the time to scour the store but I took a chance with this blouse and was pleased with the outcome (and the price!). Well, then came what to pair it with…for some reason I was drawn to the J.Crew watercolor floral skirt and even though they don’t really match, I think they at least coordinate. Which is good enough for me. Toss in my Contessa Snakeskin Bow pumps and the J.Crew Factory flower fringe necklace and I was good to go. I actually picked out this outfit a few weeks ago and stuck the blouse/skirt combo in my closet hanging together and sort of forgot about it. I was grateful for the pairing when I was at a loss for what to wear this morning (shocker) and re-discovered the pair in my closet. I was out late last night outlet shopping so didn’t take my usual time planning my next day’s outfit (outlet purchases coming soon!)
I love this skirt but I’ll admit I only wear it a few times a season since I’ve always had difficulty pairing it with tops. Which is probably why I just went nuts with this idea. This skirt makes me wish there were better cotton printed pencil skirts this season from J.Crew! I’m already scheming a new outfit for the blouse as well. So, what do you think? A little too much or does it all work? Would love to hear what you think and thanks for visiting!
I’m also thrilled to say I linked up with Mix and Match Fashion this week for “What I Wore to Work!”
