Inspiration - Penny Pincher Fashion
This outfit is the reason I love having a blog that makes me intentionally look for different ways to wear the clothes I already own! I think the blog gives me the initiative I need to keep revisiting items of clothes that I would normally categorize a certain way in my head and then wear in only that way over and and over. For example, I had originally only thought of this blouse as a 'work blouse' - basically just something to layer under cardigans for the office. I didn't even think it could be a pretty top on its own with a skirt!
I have worn both the navy a-line skirt (here) and the green tie neck blouse (here) before on the blog but it never would have occurred to me that they could possibly be good put together.
I was reading super cute blogger post from Penny Pincher Fashion about four ways to wear a midi skirt when I recognized she had on the Old Navy top I already own. So I decided to try the outfit for myself. I am super excited with the result! I feel breezy, sophisticated and really pretty. I think this is a perfect weekend date night outfit!
