The original plan was to wear my camel colored blazer with this outfit.  But, really, I would have been too warm and the rolled sleeves on the top just weren’t working with it.  So, I have grand plans to recreate this outfit with my polka dot chambray top at another time and wear the blazer with that.

In the mean time, since it’s still strangely warm in Chicago I was able to get away with just wearing my fur vest!  Crazy.  Also, I wanted to point out that this is yet another outfit that I would have never thought to create with my plaid pants.  Chambray and plaid?  It seems so obvious now.  Breaking out of your “these pants go with this top” routine can lead to some really fun outfits.
