An Unlikely Match

TJ Maxx top, Tobi skirt, Steve Madden shoes, Tobi glasses,  F21 necklace
Essie's 'Status Symbol' Polish
When I bought this skirt several months ago, I searched high and low for a top to wear with it. I finally ended up wearing a striped shirt with it that I found at F21. I was looking through my closet yesterday and came across this top that I have had for several years. I had never thought about wearing it with the skirt because I didn't think the shape would work with the skirt. (It almost looks like a peplum top.) It would look silly on top of the skirt so why not tuck the top in? I was happy with the effect and now this might be one of my favorite outfits!

  2. I love this skirt! Whenever I'm stumped about what to pair with a skirt, I'm super uncreative and just throw a gray tshirt on.
