Pinspiration Day 1 - Stephanie

First off, I apologize for the bad picture quality.  I will switch to using my camera, instead of camera phone for future posts.  Here is my outfit for today!

I am in love with the current colored pant trend, particularly for work.  Loft sold a number of skinny leg ankle length trousers last season, and this orange pair is probably my favorite.  I have been wearing these pants mostly with white blouses, but really liked how the cool and warm tones looked together in my inspiration picture.

The cambric shirt is also from Loft (as are the vast majority of things you will see from me this month).  When I wear items this bright, I usually keep accessories minimal to keep the focus on one item.  The shoes are leopard print ballet flats from Banana Republic.  When done in small amounts (like a bag or shoe) I usually consider leopard to be a neutral. 

In retrospect, I wish I had word a bright colored or metallic statement necklace under the collared shirt for a little more visual interest.  I didn't realize how big of a supporting role the colored satchel was playing in the inspiration pic.  However, I am really happy with how this outfit turned out overall.
