Two pieces that I thought were challenging to style individually ended up pairing together so well. I picked up this gorgeous pastel yellow top from Aritzia during its sale. I can never resist an open back and the fact that it's lined with silk meant I can just live in it all day. At first, it was difficult to style because the length of the top and the bare back made it difficult to pair with any regular pair of bottoms. Nonetheless, these gingham culottes were tricky as well because of it's insanely wide leg silhouette, awkward mid-shin length, and bold pattern. However, when I paired these two pieces together, everything just came together. It's comfortable and well-kept, subtle yet bold. It felt like it was the perfect outfit to go about in Milan and an outfit I would definitely repeat in New York.

This is the last of my Italy series, but until next time, Italy!
