My Inspiration, on left


Is it just me or is the second try almost always better than the first? Looking back at many outfits over the years, the first idea I’ll have for a new item - such as these plaid pants - almost never winds up being my favorite. Let’s see if you agree - check out my first idea with these plaid pants from a couple weeks ago, below. Which one do you prefer - these pants with black or white/mustard?

Pants: Express, $40
Sweater: Kohl’s, $28 (similar, similar, similar)
Shoes: Bandolino/TJ Maxx, $25 (similar, similar, similar)
Purse: Vince Camuto/Macy’s, $112 (similar, similar)
Earrings: Kendra Scott (similarsimilar, similar)
Approx. dates: Shoes are 8 years ago. Purse is 4 years ago. Sweater is 2 years ago. Earrings are 1 year ago. Pants are recent.
