I actually wore this outfit yesterday and it’s the first time I’ve ever tucked something into these pants. I ended up liking this outfit quite a bit. It’s another case of two simple pieces being combined with accessories and texture to make the outfit more interesting. The pants have a slight glittery aspect to them and this necklace always takes an outfit up a notch.

On another note, tonight I’m going to a 50th Anniversary celebration at The Limited in Chicago and as of this writing I have no idea what I’m wearing. If you’ve read this blog longer than a week you know that a good chunk of my wardrobe is from The Limited and I want to wear items from there to the celebration. But trying to decide what, exactly, to wear is hurting my brain! Hopefully I’ll have it figured out soon and can share some photos from the event with you later.  I hear there will be champagne….

    I love this outfit and especially that necklace. I need to own more button down shirts (I realize they are staple items but I don’t own many right now that fit) and be more open to tucking things in.

      Cotton button downs actually drive me crazy. They’re always too stiff and they require ironing. But polyester ones like this are much more forgiving. But, yes, finding one that fits well can be a challenge.

    I wore that necklace yesterday! I always think of you when I wear it. 🙂 Are you going to the jewelry show this weekend? 🙂

    Your legs look miles long in those pants and shoes! And I like the tab closure on those pants, it’s a nice subtle change from the usual. Ooooh, can’t wait to hear more details about The Limited shindig!!! I am sure there will be great deals to score!!!
