Fall Work Look: Plaid Skirt

This is one of those outfits that I wasn’t really sure about, but decided to post anyway. This skirt is really versatile and can pair easily with about any color. I wanted to create a “different but neutral” look, and went with different shades of brown. The camel was an easy pick, but then I had to decide if I wanted to play it really safe and go with black pumps and a black bag…. or have a little fun and go with cognac toned leopard pumps and cognac bag. I had the black pumps on, walking out the door, and last second chose the fun/less comfortable option!

If you’ve been reading style blogs for awhile, you might remember Tara K who wrote Mix & Match Fashion (later known as The Mix blog) – she hasn’t written in about 2 years (so sad also, she was one of my favorites!), but her motto was always “work doesn’t mean boring.” I loved that. She always chose the less safe route, and mixed her colors and prints beautifully. Not that I’m wearing a lot of color – I wanted neutrals – but even pairing a combination of neutrals can be challenging.
