Three Outfits, One Pair of Pants

To the office I have been wearing these pants from H&M a lot.  I have been able to wear them in a lot of different ways, and they are so much more comfortable than most of my dress pants.  Plaid is definitely having a moment this season beyond the typical fall flannels.  I am sure everyone has seen in stores selling outfits that are reminiscent of Cher from Clueless with matching sets of plaid skirts and jackets.  I love having my closet filled with different patterns and bright colors, so when I saw these pants walking home from work one day, I grabbed them.

I paired the pants with a white blouse from Forever21 and a blazer from H&M that I got from high school.  Although these stores typically sell items that designed to only last one or two years, I spend a lot of time in those stores finding pieces that will not only be in style for a long time, but will physically last me a long time as well.  I want to be the one deciding whether I will part with an article of clothing, not a bad seam or fabric.

With this outfit, I am wearing my Chanel sling-backs.  I gifted them to myself when starting my new job.  When purchasing these shoes, I knew that I would have them forever since they are a timeless design.  In addition to that, they are extremely comfortable due to the block heel.  I did not want to spend a large amount of money on shoes that would just sit in my closet.

In addition to buying pieces that last a long time, I think it is important to purchase items that can be worn in multiple ways so they are not just hanging in your closet.  By removing the blazer, I have an outfit perfect for walking around during a warmer fall day.

I also can wear these pieces with a jean jacket (another piece I have had for years) to dress down the look, perfect for an outdoor lunch with a friend.
