I've had this sort of pajama/smock/tent top for a while (like over a year) and I am never sure how to style it. I had seen some similar Marissa Webb pieces on Wendy's Lookbook, and when I saw this blouse at a second-hand store, I incorrectly assumed I could work a more flowing, romantic piece into my own wardrobe. I always picture it with the perfect pair of cigarette style pants, but I have yet to find such a pair of pants. (Also, with Memorial Day sales coming up, maybe this will finally be the year I find those perfect black pants!) Eventually, I decided just to give it a go with jeans.
The quality of the silk is really nice, and I like the color, but there is just a lot of fabric. Luckily, it has a tie around the waist, so you can wear it billowing in the wind, or tied-up and with a more streamlined silhouette. I added heels because this sort of pink seemed to demand something ladylike. I'm still looking for other ways to wear it, or this might have to go to a consignment store, as it isn't getting a ton of love in my closet. Maybe under a vest or some other sort of architectural jacket, sort of like this:
