Last week, I decided to do a little outfit pre-planning. I got inspired from Pinterest and decided to play dress-up. First, I tried this combination with a red plaid button down shirt and black pin-striped pants.
This is also the outfit that I wore to class on Wednesday. As I mentioned in a previous post, I did not like the outfit I wore on Monday. In fact, as I am writing this, I can’t even remember what I wore. I do remember wearing my tweed zip-up blazer and pink button down but I don’t remember what pants or shoes I wore. Long-story short, you’re not missing out on anything.
I then switched the pants for a skirt to see how I liked that look. Here is the result:
I liked the outfit, but it is getting colder so it is harder and harder to wear skirts. (I get cold easily.) I liked the outfit o.k., but I didn’t love it. So, I tried some more combination’s. Like this one:
In reality, I didn’t love this one, either. I feel that sometimes it can be very difficult to pull off a black vest without looking like a member of the wait staff. So, when I tried this combination on that is sort of how I felt. But, now that I see it in photographs, I think that it is a better combination than the red plaid shirt. Do you ever do that? Think that something looks really bad (or really good) but then see photographic evidence of the opposite?!
I also tried my new navy blazer with the black pinstriped skirt. On some style blog that I have read recently the author posed the question, Would you pair navy with black? And, I think that I would. But maybe not with this exact outfit:
Or maybe I will, who knows? You’ll have to stay tuned.
