Work Outfit: Wide Legged Floral Trousers with an Army Green Button Down

Army Green Button Down Top with Wide Legged Floral Print Pants

Happy Wednesday and happy almost Thanksgiving to all my American friends. It's been a little while since I shared a work outfit now that it gets dark before I get home, but here's one I managed to capture before daylight savings time ended.

These wide legged floral pants can be dressed up or down, which is good because they feel like pajamas and being pajama comfy at work is great. This time I styled them with a button down shirt to make them more work appropriate. I had some chunky heels on with this too, but you can't see them because of the grass. (Oops!) 

I enjoyed the way my army green shirt looked with the muted florals on the pants. I tend to wear these army green and olive green shades during this time of year. They can act as neutrals just like navy blue. I think it's pretty great to wear a color as a neutral!

P.S. - Sorry for the lack of pictures here but the lighting really wasn't on my side.

Do you have any big plans for the weekend or for Thanksgiving? I'm heading home to stuff my face and hopefully relax. Should be a good time!

Anyway, I hope you have a safe end of the week. Happy Thanksgiving!

Remix: Burgundy Faux Leather Jacket

Different ways to wear a burgundy leather moto jacket
One | Two

I'm not sure why, but I've been wearing my burgundy leather moto jacket a lot this season. Maybe it's the fact that it's a leather jacket in a non-neutral shade or that it keeps me dry in the drizzly weather we've been having. Either way, it's a very versatile piece as you'll see here!

I usually like to pair it with neutrals - especially black - but it also works well with jewel tones and those toned down colors that fall fashion brings. This jacket is also the perfect length to look cute with dresses, which I'm pretty sure is because it's technically a crop jacket. Short girl tip: check out cropped jackets because they tend to hit at the length a normal jacket should which means your body proportions won't be thrown off. 

Here are a few ways I've worn this trusty Forever 21 jacket. Feel free to click through to see the full posts!

Do you wear leather jackets a lot in the fall too? How do you wear yours?

Outfit: Brown Corduroy Shorts, Floral Top, Black Leather Jacket, and Pointed Flats

There's something I look forward to styling each fall: tights and shorts. Tights and shorts are kind of a perfect combination for Georgia's extremely mild fall weather. Plus you get the added bonus of wearing fun patterns and colors on your legs while still showing off your legs. I know these are plain black tights here, but you understand. 

I wanted to go for the black and brown color scheme here too. It's something I really enjoy when others pull it off. Neutrals paired together can look so nice and modern, so I paired my brown corduroy shorts with some black tights, a black floral top, and black leather jacket. The mix of texture and pattern makes it work, along with not combining too many different shades of brown in this one outfit.

What do you think? Are you a fan of shorts paired with tights too? Have you worn brown and black together before?

Tell me about your weekend plans! I don't really have anything coming up so it should be a relaxing weekend, I hope. Yesterday I went to see The Garden Lights at the Atlanta Botanical Garden for a work event so that kicked off the holiday season. It seems a little early for that still but I guess Thanksgiving is less than a week away now. At least I'm almost done with Christmas shopping so I can really enjoy the rest of the season. I just always get sad when everything's over but I guess it'a s little premature to be thinking about that when Thanksgiving hasn't even happened yet!

Anyway, I hope you have a fantastic start to your weekend. Happy Friday!

Outfit: Houndstooth Mini Skirt, Black Turtleneck, Dotted Tights, and a Wool Beret

I feel like this black and white outfit is a pretty classic look with a tiny bit of modern print mixing. It has a little bit of a 60s feel. The houndstooth skirt - yes it's houndstooth but it's hard to tell from far away - was a very early thrift find. It was hemmed into a mini skirt and I've been wearing it for years. This time I styled it with some tights with tiny dots, a fitted turtleneck shirt, a beret, and knee high boots. Something about tall boots and a mini skirt looks fantastic for fall. Also berets and turtlenecks.

Hats can really make a look but I always forget to add them to my outfits. I have a drawer filled with four berets but they're tucked away and I forget they're there. Anytime I remember, they end up making my outfit 100% better though! This black one was from H&M and is the perfect size for my small head. Plus it kept my head nice and toasty during a walk around town! Now I just need to remember to wear my non-beret hats...

How is your week going so far? Can you believe next week is Thanksgiving already? I'm looking forward to a couple days off work, eating lots of delicious foods, and spending time with family. I'll have to plan a Thanksgiving outfit that isn't just sweatpants too. Stretchy fit and flare dresses are always a good choice in my book. They leave ample room for stomach expansion!

Anyway, I hope you have a great Tuesday!
