I put these outfits together after reading Angie’s blog post today.

We’re going to Chicago this weekend (belated birthday celebration for me this time ) and I have been struggling with what to take/wear. Friday we’re going out to a new restaurant that I’m told is casual.

These pants are full length that I just don’t wear, so I have been meaning to crop them. They are just pinned for now - is the length ok?

Do any of these combinations work? It’s a lot different translating the inspiration pictures to my body. I’m not sure if the cognac sneakers and the Birkenstocks are way too casual.

Suggestions and comments are welcome!
