Black-Out Challenge, Day Three...

I once asked for help finding other colors that I could pair with this skirt. I love this skirt -- it is soft and comfy, has pockets, and an elastic waistline which is very forgiving. However, I often find myself limiting myself to purple, violet, and white when finding tops to pair with it. Last time I wore it, I paired it with a black top, but LyddieGal had suggested that I try pairing it with rust or teal.


Top: thrifted
Skirt: NY&Co
Shoes: xhilaration, thrifted
Belt: NY&Co
Earrings: Claire's
Necklace: Laila Rowe


I'm not sure the drapey top was quite right to pair with the flowy skirt, but I think belting it helped rein it in a bit. I was glad I added the shoes so that the top didn't seem to come completely out of left field.

What do you all think of this pairing?
Do you think it works?


  1. I like the outfit! And those shoes are FABULOUS.

  2. Love the look. I have a very similar shirt that I adore.

  3. I actually think the teal shirt clashes in a matchy way. If that makes sense.=) Could job!!

  4. I think the drapes work together, but I honestly am not sure about the's close, but it feels like there is something missing linking them closer. I wish I was better at color theory so I could define it. It's not bad as it is, though!

  5. I love this color combination! I think a deeper shade of teal would look great too.
