Today was one of those days that I had a completely different outfit in mind than what I actually walked out of the house wearing. I had been looking for another way to wear this top, though, and this is what I came up with. My default is always a pencil skirt, you know...

Yellow and grey is a favorite combination of mine, so I went for one of my more casual, ponte versions. I'm not sure I love the proportions with a skirt, but the way the lace print thins out near the border seems to help a bit. What really brings the whole outfit together for me is the handbag, though. I've been looking for a funky black handbag for a while now, and this DKNY black nylon and (lots of) gold hardware TJMaxx find was IT. I'm rather impressed how perfectly it completes the outfit, really.

As a top I was over the moon to get my hands on, I really am having trouble how else to style it. Any suggestions?

  1. Love this top on you, especially with the pencil skirt! :) Great look.

  2. I think It would look great with a pair of skinny jeans (but that is dressing down for you, I know!!) I like it with the pencil skirt, definitely think it needs something fitted on top. It's an awesome top!!

  3. Or maybe... I read your link before I comment about what to wear it with! I LOVE it with your skinny jeans!! Sorry! I'm a dummy sometimes :)

  4. haha! yeah, i think that's my favorite way to wear the top, so I'll probably stick with it - maybe change up the shoes and accessories for next time. i'm sure it'd look good with regular jeans too!


Thank you so much for commenting! Reading what you have to say truly makes my day!
