I saw Angie's ensemble post today after I got home from work. I realized 2 things: 1) I wore a version of the ensemble, and 2) I should have consulted the post before I left the house.

I tried the outfit 2 ways--one with the closest thing I have to ankle strap shoes and one with a high-vamped cut-out bootie. I wore it to work with the booties today. After seeing Angie's post and being reminded of Debbie's fab outfit, I thought my outfit could have really benefited from a great necklace. And actually I thought the same thing this morning as I was dressing--I tried two different ones and neither one left with me. I just couldn't seem to get the look I was after. I did wear my jean jacket over the tunic, which I quite liked, but it was my outerwear today; I did not keep it on indoors.

The outfit:
1-2, as I wore it to work: olive skinny boyfriend chinos with brass studs down the sides (Lucky); olive and white striped drapey tunic with shark-bite front hem and print neck and sleeve trim (made by me); taupe cutout booties (Kork-Ease, Stina).
3-4, the other version I tried: same outfit with taupe cross-strap flats (Naot).

I felt this outfit was comfortable and passable. I'd have liked it better with a jacket or vest, and/or with a statement necklace.
Thoughts and suggestions welcome! Thanks for looking.
