And we’ve reached the cold and gray portion of the year.  It’s usually about this time that I just want to wear sweat pants every day.  But I can’t so these stretchy dress pants from Ann Taylor will just have to do.  These pants seem to show up on Inspiration Monday quite a bit.  I think it’s because so many of the inspiration photos from Two Birds include skinny or boyfriend jeans and these pants are my workday answer to that trend.

I really like Jessica’s outfit here.  But, alas, I don’t own a funky blazer or a fun orange blouse.  In fact, I don’t own anything orange.  I’m much more partial to red.  So partial that I’m wearing it in two layers today.

      I like this idea. Patterned tights seem so fun. I think we need a guide of how to make them office appropriate… and not skankalicious.

    NOTHING IN ORANGE?! Erin, we must fix this. Wait. Do you even like orange?!

    Next time you post a pic of Mrs. Timberlake, I request a picture of Justin to accompany it. Hee hee hee.

      I don’t know if I even look good in orange!! And unless you count my Milwaukee Marathon shirt (and my March Madness Half Marathon shirt that I’ve never worn) then I don’t own anything orange.

    I like red on you… not sure orange would look as good with your skintone. Those pants are great! I hear ya on wanting to wear sweats all day every day during this weather :/ Blah. It’s about now that I start considering how much a move to Cali would cost.

    I so want that blazer of Jessica’s, I love strong shouldered blazer but it’s really hard to find affordable options. Blah, anyways I really like this inspiration image, it’s an easy one to replicate even with work appropriate items, I really like how the leopard printed shoes continue the line of the pants.
