Styling Maroon Pants with Plaid

I finally had a day off so I could take an outfit of the day picture. Yay. Because I cannot wear jeans to work I get pretty creative with alternatives. Lately I’ve been obsessed with different colors of skinny jeans. These maroon pants are prefect for semi-professional women who still want to be fashion. I usually buy my jeans from American Eagle because I am 5’ 9” and need longer lengths. Based on a lot of wears and washes I buy their jeans in extra-long and they fit perfectly.

Today I decided to go with: I think it came out great for fall! I love skinny jeans with booties - I basically wish I could wear booties year round! I thought the blue, green, and maroon went well together.

Shirt: Navy blue and green striped plaid shirt from JcPenney
Undershirt: Vanity lace tank
Pants: plum American Eagle Pants
Shoes: booties from Forever 21

Thank you Eli for the photo bomb! Either I'm super obsessed with this outfit that I had to share and/or I just feel like blogging when I wear it. Either way, I'm on a mission to post some new fall fashion photos!

Tell me: do you have a professional job? Do you hate wearing slacks? What alternatives have you found?
