As promised, here are the J. Crew Cabernet (maroon) colored Sammie chinos styled in a casual way. Earlier this week I posted a look which styled them in a more business casual, office appropriate manner. Options. I need them.
Truth be told, I’d dress casual every day of the year if I could. But I can’t… So, I need clothing that can pull double duty. I’m so drawn to casual clothes that I have to stop and ask myself “can this be worn to work too”? If it can’t, and I have no specific need/wardrobe hole, I have to walk away. Otherwise, I’d have 3 million cute sweatshirts and nothing to wear to work. So, I love it when I find an item of clothing that works for work and play. That’s been a big theme for me.
I am loving this color combination SO much. It’s perfect for fall, which is going to be here soon, soon, soon. Some of the leaves are already starting to change here in Michigan. ACK!

All the fall clothing has hit the stores and I couldn’t be happier. While summer is my favorite actual season, fall clothes are my favorite clothing option. Mainly because of the colors. Autumnal colors tend to look best on me. I typically buy a lot of clothes in the fall, and then don’t purchase much in the depth of winter. It’s not that I don’t WANT to purchase anything, I just rarely find items that I like come January.
These maroon chinos are a fun change from classic tan, and a lot more versatile than you would think. I wore them to work with this black and white shirt featured here, and I have another more casual look planned for later this week. Be sure to stop back by on Wednesday for that look.
I have a question for all my fabulous readers… Do you like it when I show you how to style the same item multiple ways via separate posts within the same week (or very close together)? Or do you think that is uber boring/snooze city? I’m curious what you think. Let me know!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate each and everyone of you.
I’ve been enjoying a lot of the offerings from Madewell recently. I visited the store a week or so ago and tried on some stuff and ended up falling in love with the Northstar Pullover Sweater. First and foremost I love the color, but I also love the thin merino knit. The long sleeves and curved hem styling is a nice alternative to the J. Crew Tippi Sweater. You can’t quite tell in these photos but the hem is longer in the back, so it provides some derriere camouflage.
The only word of caution that I have for you is it that the hem split on the sides goes up pretty far. You either need to wear a bottom that is higher waisted or layer a thin tank top or camisole underneath. Otherwise your flubber will show. Live and learn.

Thanks so much for stopping by and stay classy, my peeps!
