Don't you love discovering cute pairings by accident? Last month when we were blessed with two days of mild weather, I was on my way out the door in this blouse, skirt, and shoe combo. I asked the same question that I ask every day: "Nick, how do I look?" He gazed over me passively (as he does 99% of the time, yet I still value his opinion dearly) and said I resembled a neutral blob. Disgruntled, I ran back into the bedroom and grabbed the first non-neutral layer I could find, and turned out liking the end result much more.
Soon, my warm-weather pieces will go into hibernation under my bed...
This skirt is in line for storage, but I might push myself to try styling it with tights first. I think tights are functional, but they often ruin outfits that don't need the added element. As a result, I get bored and frustrated dressing in the depths of winter, and often wear dark outfits with black tights on repeat. Please help me by sharing any cold-weather pairing suggestions for this skirt!
For the hundredth time, thank you again R.L. for selling me this blouse. I don't look down on polyester, because sometimes it results in amazingly drapey and comfortable pieces like this, while being lower-maintenance than silk. Gap - please make more tops like this, and please do it in petite sizing too next time!
