This outfit is thouroughly tested and man-unapproved. I pulled this top the other day and was looking for a skirt to pair with it. As I was standing there in front of my closet, my eyes kept coming back to this skirt. My boyfriend was observing me do this and saw the wheels turning and asked "You want to pair that skirt with that top?" He said this in the tone of voice one might say "You want to throw that bag of kittens into that river?" I tried to tell him about pattern mixing and coordinating color palettes, but all he could do was think about how badly everything would clash. He won that round. I put the clothes back and just went with something "safe". This morning, however, he wasn't around for my little what-to-wear-today spiel, so I went for it.
