Flannel and Pencil Skirts?

Skirt: c/o Lulu*s, Flannel Top: Target (similar), Shoes: Charlotte Russe (old), Bracelets: Kohls

Lately I have been trying to step outside of my fashion comfort zone and try new things.  When I got this fun mustard yellow skirt from Lulus.com, I instinctively went to grab a plain black or white shirt.  Then I saw this plaid flannel shirt in the back of my closet.  Can flannel and pencil skirts go together?  I'm not really sure, but I thought it looked fun and it certainly wasn't something I would usually wear.  Fashion is all about taking risks, right?  If it wasn't so dang hot outside, I probably would have added a navy colored crewneck sweater on top of the flannel, so that the pattern was just peeking out at the collar and sleeves, or maybe even a leather jacket.  Yup, I'm pretty sure that will happen once it cools down...I might even add some cute tights!  Oh, I can't wait for the real Fall weather to arrive!

So, what do you think?  Was this outfit a little too crazy?
