In My Closet- Always Worn + Never Worn = New Boho Look

I have again stumbled across a top in my closet that I've never worn.

I'm not sure why this I always bypass this one when digging through my closet because it's actually a very cool shirt. (Unfortunately the tag is ripped out and I'm not sure who the vendor is.) The sleeves are a lacey crocheted fabric while the body is a stretchier knit with corseted detail. It's a great dusty pink with a print that's not quite a floral and looks great with browns and neutrals as well as black. Maybe it's because of the big sleeves...I usually tend to be a bit more tailored and they make the top a bit more boho.

I combined it with one of my favorite skirts-it's from Sears of all places! I was buying a refrigerator with my boyfriend and while he paid for the fridge I dug through their clothing racks for fun and found this for $6.99. It was two sizes to big but after taking in the waist and hemming it up about three inches I had a fun, floaty, flirty skirt that I can wear with almost any of my shoes, and I adore it with my over the knee boots! It ups the boho vibe even more.

I decided that a giant bag was probably enough accessory for me and the neutral brown- gray shade is perfect.

So what do you think? Is this top a keeper? Should I stick to my rules and try to make two more looks with it?
