Day Eight - Dressy + Casual = Something that Shouldn't be Worn?

I kind of feel like I'm channeling my inner Kendi today. 

Shirt: Old Navy
Chiffon Skirt: Thrifted
Belt: Maurices
Shoes: TJMaxx
Necklace: Premier Design Jewelry
Bracelets: Target

When I tried this outfit on last night, the hubs said, "You're going to wear THAT?" And I explained to him that I was supposed to be mixing dressy and casual for the 21 Day Challenge. He then said, "Yeah, but maybe they should at least match, right?" Well, I ignored his helpful comments and wore it anyways.

What do you think?

If you want to see how the other participants got crazy with their dressy and casual outfits, go HERE!

I think you look adorable! What do guys know about style anyway?! :)

Tara said...

I love it! And really, how does that not match?

I think it's so much fun to mix the dressy skirt with the gingham shirt. I love the prompts in this challenge :)

I think that is SUPER cute together! Most of the time I ignore my hubbies opinion on fashion, as much as I love him he's not always with it in the fashion world. ;0)

Men don't know anything, lol! Glad you went with your instincts. I love gingham, so this is a perfect outfit paired with the fancier skirt. Great job!

The top and skirt totally combine dressy and casual! I just realized that I don't own anything gingham in my closet...maybe I can find something as we're getting towards the end of the season!

Husbands just don't get it sometimes. I love the gingham and wish I had some! You look terrific!

Erica said...

Love love love this outfit! This is one of my favorites! Husbands are wonderful and all, but I think we know a little bit more about fashion than them, right? :) The gingham and the chiffon look soo good together!

I remember this cute gingham top, I think it's great combo, you paired it well with a black skirt. The pretty floral belt completes the look. Great job!

My husband knows not to razz me, but my kids, well, they're brutal! I love your little hair do-dads. I look like a dork when I try that. I'm going to search your archives for copycat ideas.
