I know, I know, I just wore a sweater over a collared shirt last week. But the look is classic for a reason. It even got chosen as this week’s Inspiration Monday photo:

And in a case of getting something new and not wanting to wait to wear it, I received this sweater as part of my latest Stitch Fix order (full post to come on Wednesday) and I immediately wanted to pair it with my brown plaid pants.

Would you believe that for years I thought the only colors I could wear with these pants were brown and cream? The first time I wore them with chambray I was so happy. Now that I’ve got this green sweater I’m thinking of even more colors I can pair with them! Navy? Burgundy? Black? So many ideas!

Also, you may have noticed that I did not take something from Friday’s outfit to pass on to today. Nope. I decided that Monday’s are a reset on the Take One, Pass It On challenge for me. Cheating? Maybe. Do I care? Nope!

    I am seriously considering starting to wear pants having been a skirts/dresses person all my life. I think that your pants look really smart and can be considered modest. I just don’t like the image of skinny jeans etc. I am really tempted to buy some pants like yours – they look really comfortable.

      The Limited is a great place to try on pants if you have one near you! They have lots of different styles and they’re one of the few stores that still have bootleg or widelegged pants. Ann Taylor is also pretty good but The Limited always has better sales.

    Ah, you threw me off with the plaid in your title! I was expecting a plaid top. I like the pattern on those pants, though. It’s subtle enough to not be *too* in your face (like what I was envisioning) but keeps the pants from being plain ol’ brown pants. I’m not much of a pattern-on-bottom sort of person, but if I am going to wear patterns on my pants, this is something I think I could handle.

      Yes! It does look very holiday-esque. I knew there was something I liked about putting it with the red coat but I couldn’t put my finger on it. But that’s definitely it!
