I'm trying Angie's ink-out ensemble today. When I saw the post originally, I figured I'd do it with jeans, since I wear them a lot on my days off. But I need to teach a class today, so I went with chinos instead. I substituted an ink-and-black checked top and a silver belt for the texture in Angie's ensemble, to un-flatten the look. What do you think? Does it work?

The outfit:
Navy ankle chinos (Caslon); navy and black checked cowl-neck blouse (made by me); navy merino boyfriend cardigan (Halogen); silver belt, earrings, and bracelet with silver-rimmed stones; black loafers (Munro); taupe trench (Calvin Klein); black satchel (Elliott Luca, Olvera).

Thanks for looking! I welcome your thoughts and feedback.
