works cited: top c/o ruche; j. crew skirt; UO flats; necklace from the camp lost and found ten years ago
A few weeks ago, someone sent me a message asking how I would style a loose-fitting blouse (such as this one that I kept obsessively mentioning) with a skirt rather than jeans. [Sidenote: I continue to feel perplexed that people ask me how to style anything, because still can't figure out how to style myself most mornings. I suspect I will need about 30 more years before I feel qualified to dole out advice.] So I rose to the challenge and styled this top with a skirt rather than jeans--the resulting scrap of advice I came up with is that I tucked the top into the back part of the skirt more than the front. But because I started this blog in part to get feedback and ask other people questions (rather than to give advice I feel entirely unqualified to give), let me ask: do you all have any tricks up your sleeves for wearing loose blouses with skirts?
