Angie's post came at a time I am trying these Vince trousers.I would not have even planned on trying a complete "pale" column but here goes!

I took a chance on the Vince in the cream color--a light color is HEWI for me as it's so unforgiving in fit, compared to black--I have not had any success in a few year with light gray slacks or similar--but such a color makes a much bigger "change" of outfit if I can find it. these are not "high waist" on me so I lose something in legline length, but are nearly at waist and the fabric drape is good.

I actually was trying some Lewit cropped trousers I really ALMOST loved --see both Finds--but could not get the fit right in their crisp fabric. Trying these instead helped me see not to keep trying to make those work and to go, NEXT.

These are not yet hemmed and I was too lazy to pin, and the drapey fabric won't stay turned up, so will have to imagine at PPL. I will have to just commit to a shoe heel height--of course "higher" would give longer legline, but then I'm stuck. Will likely use these PG oxfords in gray.
-1 with Talbot's top which has double-fabric front for no see-through
-3 with a different rayon T layered under a linen-blend jacket'
-2 with stars T ; not sure I would do this at work, but

the stars are same as pants color.

I have a similar top with tiny cream leaf pattern and some others that would also be darkish top/light pants.

I think my EF "bone" knit cardi also works
Showing with cognac belt for Angie post but also have a kind of taupey-gray I like with it.

What say you? Thanks Angie for ideas!
