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.

    My gray shoes arrived yesterday and they are amazingly comfortable! I’m not certain I can wear them on my commute though.

      Hooray! Admittedly, I tend to wear ballet flats or boat shoes on my commute (or Uggs or other winter boots when it’s cold) and leave my shoes under my desk at work.

    Chambray is one of those things that just works with everything, it’s so versatile. (Of course, I think plaid always goes with everything, so I might be off there.) This belt is fabulous, I love the equestrian/harness feel to it, I never realized that The Limited had cute belts like this!
