I, along with the rest of the United States, has caught up with and fallen hard for Downton Abbey. And not only because it produces blogs that match scenes with Beyonce lyrics. Also because the styling is pretty great. Ok, ok, also because the story and characters are awesome, but c’mon. On last night’s episode, Mary was wearing some pretty stellar skirt-blouse combinations. One that particularly caught my eye was a lovely patterned blouse and long skirt she wore at the end of the episode. So, with that inspiration, here are a few patterns, but with a modern spin. 

If I were going to do this in real life, I’d probably wear the exact same look I posted last week, with my new green skirt.
