Mutually Inspired Series Day 4: Burgundy Pants

Office Appropriate Outfits - Spring



Cardigan – Nordstrom Rack (similar) | Shirt – The Limited (similar) | Pants – Target (similar) | Shoes – Anne Klein | Scarf – H&M via Poshmark (similar)

When these pants debuted on my blog Jen told me she had actually bought the same pants!  After yesterday’s mind-meld of both wearing our striped blazers (totally not planned, I promise!) and the fact that we own the same pair of pants I feel we were destined to find one another in the blog world! And, of course, that meant I had to wear these pants at least once during our Mutually Inspired Series.



I took my cue from the comfy but fun pairing of patterns and textures that Jen put together and the fact that not only did I have the exact same pants, but I had a ridiculously similar striped long-sleeved shirt and, of course, a polka dotted scarf. Here’s Jen’s original outfit. Crazy that I basically had all the same pieces, right? I know this is more of a copycat than an inspiration, but I couldn’t not.



I think this is the perfect outfit for a slight casual outfit. The textures and patterns keep it from being boring and you could easily do this with just about any mixture of colors. Alternately, if you needed to be more dressed up, you could swap the cardigan for a blazer and the striped t-shirt for a blouse like this one. In fact, I just might do that in the near future!

Tomorrow is the last day of the Mutually Inspired Series! I’m sad to see it end. Especially because I had even more outfits of Jen’s that I wanted to recreate. And if you haven’t clicked over to see what outfits of mine have been inspiring Jen you need to do so right now!
