One Top, Two Ways (New Series?)

I really like the design of this top (£17.99) including the rolled cuffs, shoulder pleats, and exposed zipper in the back. I generally have a hard time wearing brown because I have brown hair, brown eyes, and it tends to be, well, a bit boring for me. I put together two outfits to see if I could punch up the color a bit.


What do you think? Is this type of post something you'd like to see a bit more on D&OC? I think it could be a fun series and I'd love to hear your feedback. 
update- Are you thinking about purchasing an item but not sure how you'd wear it? Want suggestions on affordable products to go with your new purchase? Email me and I might just include it in this new series! xo

Love this (fun to look at!) and especially looooove outfit number 2. The return of wide-leg jeans might just inspire me to start wearing pants . . . once in a while. ;)

Great idea as its always good to see someone else's take on something. Love outfit 2, even we more mature ladies could get away with that.
Definitely a theme to run with.

@claire- i know, i'm loving the return of wide legged jeans. i'm the hunt for the perfect pair (but dresses will still remain my fave).

What a great idea - often I see items of clothing and I'm just not quite sure what to pair it with, so this is really helpful.

I love that chunky, coloured necklace in outfit one - so cheerful!
