In the past I have always styled this top with jean leggings and layered over it. This blouse has a high-low hem that is very extreme.
I was trying to come up with a way to style it that was different from in the past. As I reached for a black skirt, this faux brown leather number was on the same hanger and it was styling love at first sight.
The skirt was long enough to hide the longer hem of the top and the pairing seamed to be a perfect match!
I kept it very "matchy matchy" by adding a blue and brown heel that had animal print on the soles. By tossing on some great gold jewelry, it really finished the look off.

Here are the ways myself and Kailtyn have styled this blouse in the past:

What do you think of my most recent pairing? Ever take an item of clothing and try to make it look completely different?
