I have been loving the matching set trend lately!
I had my heart set on this Lilly Pulitzer crop top and skirt set when it came out back in April. I tried it on, and it unfortunately had a very odd fit. I was at Belk to try on the Lilly set, and I like to check Belk's Ralph Lauren section of the kid's department every once in a while. I'm 5'2" and usually wear a 0 or 00, so I can still wear some of some kid's clothes, and I like to see if there is anything that doesn't really look like it was made for kids.
So, while I was there I found this white seersucker matching set in the Ralph Lauren section. I liked it, but I thought it sort of looked too much like a tennis outfit. So when I went online to see they had the same set in this floral print, and on sale from Bloomingdale's for $43, I couldn't resist it! For reference for my fellow petites, I am wearing a size 14. And as cute as the set is together, I love how the skirt can be worn with a lot of different tops, and the top can go with other skirts, shorts, or pants.

I've teamed up with Maddy of The Black Barcode blog to show you how we style matching sets! We have done quite a few of these collabs before like last summer, last spring, and earlier last year! Today, we have both styled the top and bottom together. Next Wednesday, we are styling the tops with other pieces, and the week after that we are styling the bottoms with other pieces.

Don't forget to check out Maddy's post, to see how she styled her adorable navy gingham matching set!
