Today's outfit started with my Earhart Aviator trousers - comfortable, not traditionally flattering and full of volume. I paired the trousers with a simple black scoop neck tank, fully tucked with my black leather belt. Because of the volume these trousers create on the legs, I need to add an element of structure to my top half so as not to feel all frumpy - this is achieved here by both the fully tucked tank and the blazer. On top of the tank, I popped on my pale blue blazer (from my pastel blue suit) and scrunched the sleeves for even more structure. I'm debuting my new Clarks sandals (the replacements for the Fugitive sandal shoes). I love the high vamp on these because they can work to elongate my leg line when wearing black bottoms. I then chose my black patent fold-over clutch and purple/clear specs to finish the outfit. I'm digging the black and pale blue combination - it seems kind of unexpected, which I like.

I'm also falling back in love with some of my jewelry and am wearing a dainty necklace today that my hubby gave me for Christmas.

So what do you think? Does this all work together? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
