I can't decide if I like today's outfit or not. I liked it in the mirror, but then didn't like it as much when I saw it in pictures (three years of daily outfits and I'm still surprised how different something looks in person vs. in pictures sometimes!). I've always been a fan of sharing imperfect looks though, and the whole process of getting dressed including trial and error. What I do like about this outfit is the idea to dress up your cargo pants with a polished blazer and patent heels, and I like the bohemian flare of the necklaces with the olive pants. I've had these pants for 3 years, but I'd like to add a light green pair to my closet this fall, the first two below are my favorites. Would you wear today's look? How would you wear cargo pants?
