Among the many things I am concluding about my wardrobe and clothing in general is that pants are overrated. Skirts and dresses are totally the way to go if you want to look pulled together and interesting,and have some variety to your look. It's obviously good to have a few great pairs of pants, but all of my outfits would be so boring if I wore each top with a pair of black or khaki pants. I think this shirt is pretty, but I have been putting off wearing it because it's too boring to wear with pants, but it doesnt match many of my skirts. If I had an occasion to wear a business suit recently, I would consider wearing this shirt underneath, as long as I continue to safety pin the ruffled neckline to make it work-appropriate.
