Here is the outfit I wore earlier this evening for a nice long walk, to go and get bubble tea as a reward after wrapping up a long WFH week. It was an interpretation of the 2nd formula from today's blog post.

The outfit was built around pleather piece(s) I scored from AT on deep sale at the end of the winter season: a matching set of slim wide crops and shell in a color AT called "fig". It took me some comparing with other recognizable colors (purple, burgundy, brown) in bright sunlight to figure out that this color "fig" is basically a pretty dark eggplant (see photo #5). I added an eggplant plaid VB Miller blazer as a top layer. I was debating if I should wear the outfit with the pleather shell (#1/2) or switch it for sparkly ribbed knit, also in eggplant (#3/4). I tried both versions. I am curious which one you prefer and which one you think I ended up wearing.

Shoes were a bit of an issue, since I wanted a tonal outfit. My dark purple booties did not go well with the rest of outfit as their undertone was much blue-er. Dark brown ones went much better but the shaft was not high enough to close the gap with the cropped pants. Thus I settled on the purple suede block heel loafer pumps, with which I took the photos. However, I confess that right before I left I switched the shoes for dark burgundy flat loafers, as the pumps felt a bit off shape-wise. I snapped a photo with loafers when I got back home, but it was super dark so the photo is as well, the only thing you can see well is shapes. I will add it later, as not to spoil the guessing of the underlayer. The burgundy was dark enough that the difference from eggplant was pretty small and I liked the higher vamp better with the cropped pants.

My apologies for darkness of the photos, I need to remember to take them earlier in the day. The colors are represented pretty accurately in the Finds.
