One of the reasons that I've decided to stop doing the daily photo is that I've weeded out my wardrobe quite a bit, and I repeat things quite a bit (and that's a little boring when it comes to a daily photo). I really do love these pants though - they are the best-fitting pants I've had in quite a while. Anyway, the main point of this post was to point out my sandals. Black strappy sandals have been a staple in my wardrobe for years, and I wear whatever my current version is at least every other day. Last year I retired my pair at the end of the summer and mused on what to replace them with. Surprise, surprise, I ended up just buying the same pair again! They really are super comfortable, and while they aren't the dressiest pair, I've also supplemented them with a heeled version, although I will typically reach for this pair, I'm not going to lie!

Anyway, today I decided to add a bit more structure to my flowy pants, and wear a little short-sleeve jacket. I also like how the hip-length of the jacket tones down the tendency of the pants to overwhelm short lil me when I wear a tucked in shirt, so overall, I call it a success!

Another outfit from pinterest inspiration today! I've been spotting black on white plaid pants for several months now, and finally found a pair of my own. A few of my inspirations:
In my usual fashion though, I paired them with a black crew-neck sweater instead of a white top. This is basically my favorite work silhouette for a non-meeting day. Comfy, but classic and chic.

I pinned this photo not too long ago onto my style board, because I loved the color combination. I've been wanting a pair of tan pants, but haven't found a good pair that fit, and so I switched over to this olive green color, and found a pair that I liked. I'm really trying to get away from my black pants rut, and I think this is a great neutral that goes with most of the colors in my wardrobe. I wouldn't wear it up by my face, since I think it would tend to make me look sick, but great as a bottom.
I realized that I don't have any grey warm weather shirts in my wardrobe (a hole I didn't realize was there), but I do have this heather blue tee, which has a similar impact, and I was pleased with this work from home outfit. It's pretty casual, but I like that I'm not wearing jeans, like I do every other day.
I've been pulling a lot more blue into my wardrobe lately, and I've always loved this blue-violet color, and was greatly saddened when Crayola retired the blue-violet crayon quite a while ago. Anyway, I've been waiting for a chance to pull out this jacket, and a meeting provided the opportunity. I was hoping to wear it in casual situations as well, but for some reason I've hesitated every time I tried.

Trying out my crop top again, and styling it a little differently than last time. I wore black pants, to avoid cutting myself up horizontally too many times, as well as I wore a slim-fitting tank top underneath, instead of a flowy button-down. I do like the black pants, but I think the changes in volume are a little too drastic this way, and actually cut me up worse than the different-colored pants did. I might try to take a little of the volume out of the front of the shirt, but I haven't quite decided yet.
