I’ve been wanting to wear this blouse with the skirt for the longest time. I actually bought them together about 2 years ago with the intention of pairing them together. But every time I tried this outfit on something was wrong. This skirt sits more on my hips and with the loose blouse I just felt frumpy. I finally figured it out – hike the skirt up! I pinned it in the back so now the skirt sits high on my waist. I added my new gold plated belt to further define my waist and add a little more pizazz! And now I don’t feel frumpy!
I’m feeling a lot better now! Thanks for your well wishes! Although, I’m a little scared I might have a brain eating amoeba. See, I used a neti pot (gross!) while I was sick and used regular tap water. Apparently, you should ONLY use distilled or boiled water to kill all those organisms! I didn’t know!! Ok, it is extremely rare to get one of those but I’m still kind of freaking out. So if I suddenly stop blogging you’ll know why! :-/ You should see symptoms within 2-15 days and it’s been about 5 days so far so I’m not out of the woods yet!

Stai davvero benissimo!
Shirt and skirt are perfect together!
Oh dear! I'm sure you're fine about the netipot thing! My boy doesn't always use distilled water and he's fine 🙂
Lovely look! I love the belt you've added to the skirt!
You look fabulous!! xx
I love that outfit! I have a few pinned just like it! I have been looking for a skirt just like that for so long– one that will transition nicely into cooler weather, but haven't had any luck 🙁
What a gorgeous outfit! I love the color of that blouse, and it seems like it was made for that skirt! I can't believe you waiting two years to wear such a great outfit 🙂 Sometimes it just takes the right styling!
xo honestly, b.
Loving the print of this skirt with the belt, adorable! Isn't it funny how hiking something up of changing one detail makes everything better all of a sudden?!
The olive blouse looks so pretty with that pleated skirt!
Neti pots kinda freak me out so I've never used one but I'm sure you will be fine!

I have totally bought things to wear together and then not worn them. glad this combo finally happened, and i love the gold belt too!
I almost bought these shoes! They are so pretty and I love this outfit very military/girlie! I feel as though in high school instead of learning proofs and how to find x we should of learned how to sew so we could hem and make clothes fit better. I would use that talent a lot! Great fix!
I love those shoes!!!
That belt!!! It does add pizzazz!!!! I think it makes the whole outfit!!! You look gorgeous as usual! 🙂
This is a great outfit for transitioning into Fall! I love the colors of this look!

You look totally gorgeous! I REALLY need to learn how to alter things, haha.
Gorgeous skirt! I love that you pinned the skirt up – such a good idea!
Haha I have been so afraid to use my neti pot after I heard about that whole brain eating amoeba thing!
I love how you finished off this outfit with the gold belt. Gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!
