This skirt was hidden in my closet for months before I pulled it out and decided to give it a try, and now I'm wondering why it took so long! The thing that attracted me to it at first was the color...plum...or at least that's what I'm calling it. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of different ideas I've come up with to style it. For today, I'm going with this plum/blue combo. This isn't a combo that I would've thought of on the spot. Sometimes it takes a simple thing as seeing two pieces of clothing lying next to each other to get an inspiration. I loved the unexpected inspiration I got with these colors, and when accessorized with my leopard handbag, I loved it even more. I love pearls, and this multi-layered pearl necklace coupled with the puffed sleeves of the blouse added some mandatory feminine details to the outfit. The blouse is slightly lose, so the belt helps to create a better shape and is a great accessory.
