Two Pieces, Two Ways – Day 1

Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter

Two Pieces, Two Ways- Day 1

Welcome to Two Pieces, Two Ways: A Chicago City and Suburbs Remix that my fellow blogger Valerie of The Style Files and I are doing this week. When she mentioned that we both had this snakeskin print top from Kohl’s* and these burgundy LOFT pants we knew we had to show you our own take on how to wear them.

Valerie lives and works in the Chicago suburbs while I live and work in the city. But, as you can see, both places can be fashionable!

Today is simple. The pants and the top together. Valerie added a perfect camel blazer and seeing that I wish I had thought to throw mine on. Next time! I went with easy and just wore the top with the pants.

Tomorrow we’ll be showing you how we each styled this same top two different ways. Then Wednesday? The pants get to shine! I hope you’ll visit each of our blogs for outfit details and to see what we think of each other’s outfits.

*Valerie generously sent me this top last year so of course she knew I had it!
