I'm trying really hard to put away my boots, but it just keeps getting cold!

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.
Trying out a new style - the palazzo pant. I think that skinny pants are the most flattering on me, but it's fun for a change, not to mention they are incredibly comfortable. I can't quite decide how I feel about them, if I like them, or if I need to wait a couple decades before breaking them out. I'm also debating whether or not I should hem them into more culotte-length. John always tells me I look ridiculous in culottes, but I love them, and I worry the full-length is a little overwhelming for me. What do you think? For some reason, I also was apparently not able to stay still in order to get a non-blurry photo, so trust me, the blurred face really is me. :)

I've decided that my standard outfit type should now be dressy casual, whatever that means. Since I've been working from home a lot more, my work wardrobe has seen a lot less wear, but I've never been a fan of hanging out in pajamas, so dressy casual it is. My current working definition is jeans + nice shirt. To try to deal with this weird transitional weather, I've also added a blazer today.
