Two-Piece Dress 5 Ways

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.  For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation.  And as for all who walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them and upon the Israel of God.  Gal. 6: 14-16

Hey, friends!  Ya'll remember this buffalo plaid midi skirt from my Style Steal, don't cha?  The tablecloth had so much fabric, I was also able to make another Style Arc Ethel top and a belt all for under $23!

The Challenge
Since I now have a top and a skirt to work with, I thought it would be fun to do some mixing and matching to see how versatile these pieces could be.

The Details
Look #1 (above) is the skirt and top together making a two-piece dress.  A variety of belts were tried with it.  I ended up being inspired by Laura~I Do DeClaire from her recent Let's Go Gingham post to use a matching belt, as to not interrupt the line.  It's easier to see the front seam lines in the top fabric this time around, too.  Since my shoes are a medium brown, I chose this me-made abalone necklace that's a similar brown, but reflects pink, blue, purple, etc.

Look #2 is using the sleeveless top from my What to Wear~ National Tequila day post and adding a fun macrame belt that was found recently on eBay.  I was inspired by Kellyann's~This Blonde's Shopping Bag belt.  (I actually considered getting the same one she has, but wasn't sure it would fit!)

Look #3 is a familiar one from my Style Steal post.  The top is the and the pink plaid one are the same pattern.  I accidentally cut two sets of interfacing for this top, so the pink one has blue print interfacing in the sleeve/armholes--I figured "why not?!"

Look #4 is also from the Style Steal post.  How could a look with a graphic t-shirt not be included?

Look #5, the final outfit is adding simple white cutoffs to the "dress" top.  

The Options
Honestly, with something as straight forward as a plaid, there are endless ways to mix and match these pieces.  While I took advantage of blue, because I'm on a pink and blue kick right now, if you look at the outfit with the Led Zeppelin t-shirt, all of the colors in the print go with the skirt, too.  The sky's the limit!
