It seems my fall-back silhouette is long top over skinny pant.

Like Tr3kkiegrl, I've been building my outfits from the shoes up, since I've got plantar fasciitis again (this time in the other foot). (I had it last spring and into the summer.) I am not ready to put away my running shoes for good. I have had a good long "run" of it, some 35-40 years of running, with probably 30 or so half-marathons along the way. If I have to give it up completely, I'll be at a loss for what to do to keep me sane for the next 30 years!

But I digress. The outfits, built around the shoes.

1-3 (worn to work): Charcoal skinny ankle pants (Classiques Entier, City Weave Ankle Pants); mauve floral surplice blouse (made by me); maroon sweater vest (Caslon); green trench (Gallery); espresso and black satchel (Joy Gryson, Natalie); gray moto boots (Frye, Lynn) with my trusty Superfeet inserts.

4-6 (worn to work): Espresso skinny ponte pants (NYDJ); brown, gray, and ivory tie-dye knit layered tunic (made by me); long charcoal cardigan (Halogen); black and mauve packable coat (Mycra-pac); espresso and black satchel; gray shimmer oxfords (Naot, Kedma) (no inserts needed!).

7-10 (worn for a day off): Dark skinny ankle jeans (Lucky, Charlotte Rail); fuchsia cashmere shirttail tunic (Halogen); flame stitch wool scarf in browns, grays, fuchsia and wine (Asian Eye); olive leather moto jacket (AllSaints, Hawks in khaki); taupe shoulder bag (Aunts & Uncles); gray moto boots (Frye, Lynn) with Superfeet inserts.

This is the first outing for the new leather jacket! I saved it till after Christmas (even though I bought it during the black Friday sale), since I decided it was going to be the gift from my parents, using the money they sent me. It was perfect for the day, as an outer layer. I will wear it as an indoor jacket, too, I think.

Thanks for looking! Thoughts and suggestions welcome!
