1 Blouse, 2 Skirts

This past weekend the Iowa weather gave me one last going away gift:  two consecutive days with highs of 75!  I took full advantage of this rare occurrence by pairing this Forever 21 blouse with this off-white J.Crew pencil skirt and my favorite heels to celebrate my Gpaw turning the ripe ole age of 93 (!!!) by seeing “The Dixie Swim Club” at Circa 21 (hilarious show) with my mom, Aunt Peg, and of course, Gpaw.

I love how the smaller speckled print on this lightweight blouse is a quieter play on the ever-popular leopard/cheetah print and yet still lends to different color pairings.  I chose to wear it with the pencil skirt to play off the white in the pattern and to stay more classic for the event and the people I was with.  However, I adore how this mustard hi-low skirt pulls out the orange from the pattern without being too matchy-matchy and how tying the blouse lends a completely different vibe to the overall outfit.  Other looks I would love to try with this blouse:  white jeans/shorts with brown leather sandals or mustard corduroys/denim with platform booties and a high bun.

Which look is your favorite and why?  How do you feel about wearing white skirts/pants after Labor Day?  Any other ways you would wear this blouse?
