Que Bella – Porcelain Paisley

I really wanted to wear this skirt as soon as possible and didn’t want to wait for another go-into-the-office day (since I won’t have one for three weeks!!). So I decided to try my options to see which one I liked best for running errands on Friday. My goal was to keep things simple and let the skirt shine.

First, I paired the Porcelain Paisley Skirt with a J Crew Factory Favorite Fit Tank in Navy (similar here) and my trusty Stuart Weitzman Nude Wedges. For the hot day we had the tank was perfect.

Next, I added a J Crew Cotton Cardigan, from 08/09, in Navy (similar here). A nice pairing but I didn’t like the longer length covering the print of this skirt, at least for today. 
I swapped the wedges for the Cece Suede Ballet Flats in Wild Berry, making the outfit a little more casual, with a pop of color.
I swapped the Navy cardigan with a Factory Jackie in White (similar here) and the Mona Heels in Wild Berry. I love the pop of pink. 
Finally, I swapped the heels for the Chambray Soludos. I quite like this for a super casual look. It was the one I went with today and ended up not wearing the cardigan since it was so hot today. 
So tell me…what do you think of these pairings? I must confess I was going to wear a red tank but it was too big on me so I had to go for a smaller one. How will you style this skirt?

    Ohhhh I like it with the Mona Fuschia Pumps!

    PS–I say white, pink, yellow, or orange colored tops would look great with this skirt!

    I love it with the Mona pumps. That pop of color does it for me every time!

    The top outfit the best. I am partial to SW. 😀

    I think they all look smashing! I got mine yesterday and wore it to work with the Roccoco top (which echoes the pattern of the dress), the ivory cotton cardigan and a pair of silver van eli sandals with crystals butterflies on them which are beautiful! I think I love your looks best with the fuschia pumps.

    This is truly one of the loveliest skirts JCrew has ever done and when I saw it I did not regret the price I paid here in Canada!

    All are great pairings…especially with the warm weather we are having (already!)in Central TX! Hard to stay out of J Crew these days!

    I've been hoping to see some styling ideas for this skirt, thank you! My favorite is definitely the navy tank with the white Jackie & pink Mona heels. I also like it with the nude heels and pink ballet flats. These are all great ideas, though!
