I bought this fun striped skirt a few weeks ago from Target. I originally paired the skirt with a solid tee shirt and a panama hat for a recent trip to Temecula's wine country. (If you follow me on Instagram, I posted this version of the look there.) Well, I loved the skirt so much taht I decided to get the matching blouse shortly after wearing the skirt for the first time. As you can see here, I'm pairing the blouse with the skirt to create an outfit that essentially looks like a dress. The thing I like about this is that the pattern really makes a much bigger statement when you pair the two pieces together, but then you also have the option to wear them as separate pieces!

For accessories, I thought the obvious choice was to go with an orange tote bag to bring out all of the fun, warm colors in the print. I also opted for a pair of natural sandals, which are a little hard to see because the grass in front of this Victorian house was a little high when we took these pictures, but, believe me, they are very cute and you can probably just see the bows peaking out, which make them extra cute!

  1. The skirt and blouse look amazing as a pair. At first, I thought it was a dress, and it looks expensive. I was shocked to see that the two pieces are available at budget-friendly prices from Target. I love the variations in color and direction of the stripes. What a great find!

  2. I love this matching set! It really does look like a dress but you get lots of different outfit options too which is so useful, especially for travelling. The orange bag is fabulous too! Thanks for linking up!
