Decorative Sleeve White Top And Sky Blue Skirt

 By Jove I Think I've Got It!

Hey friends!  I surely hope that each of you enjoyed your Easter Day very, very much and your week so far has gone well. Our Easter Day was low-key and included church services with lots of bells and brass, Mexican for late lunch and then chilling for the rest of the day! All in all, the perfect day. Now, look in the mirror and tell me what you see. I see the perfect solution to a top for the light sky blue skirt I shared a few posts ago!

You may recall that I was moaning about the fact that I just couldn't seem to find the right top to wear with this skirt. I kept trying different tops and, somehow, none of them looked right. I was ready to send this skirt on its way when I found a winner. 

Can you imagine my surprise when I found this beautiful cream/white top on the clearance rack at Walmart?! The top is branded as "status By Chenault" and boasts the prettiest sleeves. There are flower designs with holes on the petals on the sleeves. It's a cotton/poly mix and I will wash it carefully to keep it nice for a long, long time. I found a similar top to share with you. 

I'm also listening to my readers who suggested wearing a blue scarf with the outfit. So, voila! I think this scarf is the perfect accessory to pull this outfit together and carry blue through the whole outfit. Sometimes, we fashionistas have to be patient for just the right article of clothing to come along in order to make an outfit come alive. And when it works, it works! So, don't give up just yet on that pair of pants or skirt or top that you just can't seem to style. The right article of clothing to compliment that hard-to-style piece may be right around the corner...and if you're lucky....on a clearance rack!

I'll be traveling to West Virginia next week to see my family but, never fear, Cassie has assured me that she and Garden are perfectly capable of keeping the blog running in my absence so look for a post from them next week as well as a "this and that" post later in the week. 

Until Next Time,

Your outfit looks so very nice. Glad that you found the top to go with the skirt. Blue in any form is my favorite color.
