Dear Outblush, I have written to you a few times now and you've been so helpful! I'm stumped once again and need more help! I bought this beyond adorable skirt but I don't have a top to wear with it. Or shoes for that matter. I'd love some ideas! I'm a pretty traditional dresser, I don't get too fancy. I'm open to different colors and styles, maybe a few options that are work appropriate. I'd like to keep the total for a top and shoes around $100. Thanks so much and I canNOT wait to see what you have in store for me :)
Girl, that skirt is cute! Excellent purchase. Though the skirt does have a bold pattern, the palette is neutral, so you should feel comfortable accenting it with a bit of color. For tops, I picked some simple, more fitted options, may of which are available in additional colors. Stay away from anything too loose or boxy - because the skirt has volume, you don't want to add too much on top.
Shoes could also go in a lot of directions. I included a basic navy flat that will always work with the skirt no matter what you're wearing on top, but there's also some color thrown into the mix.
