Shopping My Closet and Playing Dress Up

Which Top Looks Best With This Skirt?

Hello everyone!  I'm coming to you from my kitchen today. It's been a bit of an adventure trying to shoot photos for this post. My camera wasn't cooperating and I couldn't figure out how to set the timer on my iPhone. So, I turned to my laptop and figured out how to set the timer on that. Success! Today, I am sharing a pretty Spring skirt that I thrifted before all the virus worries started. I am showing it styled with three different, white and blue. Let me know in the comment with top you like best with the skirt, ok? 

This shows you a close-up of the skirt pattern. The pattern in a black background with pretty flowers scattered all over in blues, pale yellow, sort of a creamy light orange and a pale pink. So, there are many choices for colors in terms of wearing a top. I'm shopping my closet, though, so I had to use what I had available in a solid color. I also am not big on tucking in tops right now so that limited me a bit with trying tops, as well. The skirt brand is Southern Lady and has a stretch waist. 

So, first up is a long sleeved black tee. I'm keeping the same shoes on in each pic by the way.

Next up, we have a white top that is shorter sleeves and a lacy front. Sorry for the lighting. 

And finally, a cobalt blue top that is longer and I added a belt. I still have the 2:3 ratio with the length of the top compared to the length of the skirt. The top, by the way, is by Covered Perfectly. See my sidebar if you are interested in ordering from Covered Perfectly. I do earn a small commission if you order from them. 

So...what do you think? Which top do you like best? Please let me know in the comments and also let me know how you are doing! Looking forward to hearing from you. 

May I also share a scripture with you?

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?  Matthew 6:25

Until Next Time,

Great outfits. The blue top is so pretty. It's a great color on you. Thanks for joining the Top of the World Style linkup

Such a pretty skirt Debbie! I'm going with the blue, and here is why. I think the way you styled the longer top over the skirt, with the belt, adds a lot of interest and takes the style to a different level than just adding a plain top. It gives this a completely different look and really works. It's going to work no matter which way you go with this, and it's always a plus to have options!

I like all the tops, Debbie. The white one is my favorite though, just because it lightens the look and reminds me of spring.

Thank you Clearissa, Nicole, Karen and Sharon, for your comments! The blue seems to be the winner. Sorry Sharon! I actually like all three tops myself with this skirt and can envision times when I might wear each look. As Karen says, it is nice to have options! Hope all of you lovely ladies are staying well and safe. Take good care.

The black is my favorite - but like you said, you could wear most any color.
Grace & Peace,Iris

I think the white looks nicest with the skirt but they are all pretty tops.
