Daily outfit: black silk and a white print skirt

A daily outfit from RIGHT NOW! Oh my god. This is what happens when I get up early. Anyway, this is probably the second time I've coordinated this skirt this way - it's a lovely print, but wearing it with light colours makes everything feel entirely too sweet for me, so adding black on top and bottom helps tone everything down a bit. I'm probably wearing this blouse entirely opposite to the way it was designed - it's very drapey, with a batwing cut and a longer drape in the back, so I believe it's probably meant to be worn loose over tight jeans or a fitted skirt. Regardless, I adore it - the print is tiny cream stars and birds, and it's the loveliest floaty silk chiffon. I might have a silk chiffon problem. Perhaps I ought to go to Chiffon Anonymous meetings.
