WIW: not quite light blue & black

I saw Angie's ensemble post after I got home from work this evening. What I wore was close enough that I thought I'd share it anyway. I will have to think about whether I can do the outfit more deliberately; I'll have to see if I have light blue that I can work with.

The other look is from another day this week. . .

The outfits:
1-2 (worn to work): Black knit harem pants (Eileen Fisher); blues, black, sage, and cream reptile print silk tee (made by me); medium wash denim jacket (AG, Robyn); black and white reptile print sneakers (Mephisto, Yael), black satchel (not pictured, Elliott Lucca, Olvera).
If I weren't wearing the jacket, you would see more of the cream color in the top. There is a range of blues in the top, from aqua to denim to navy.

3-4 (worn to teach sewing classes): Navy ankle chinos (Caslon); mauve floral tee (made by me); taupe shredded knit cashmere shrug (made by me); pewter cutout belt (Fossil); pewter suede high-top sneakers (Paul Green).

Thanks for looking! I welcome your thoughts and suggestions.

    The first look is my fav. And I think this looks great. I wouldn't roll the sleeves of the jacket. Fun look!

    Thanks, AM! I must admit, I'm flummoxed by sleeves. Usually I forget to try scrunching, but I did try it this morning. It felt comfortable, but I can see it looks pretty odd.

    How cool is #1! You wear the harem pants really well and yes it is pretty close to Angie's ensemble!

    #2 is of course a very Firecracker outfit :-) YLF!

    Firecracker, you pull off the funkiest looks! I love all of them. Good thinking to use a jean jacket as your light blue!

    As Staysfit said, funky looks :) Those harem pants look great on you. Great with the denim jacket.

    Thanks, everyone!
    Staysfit and Diane, I like your description of these as funky. I tried on the harem pant outfit with my black suede booties that have a gray turn-down cuff, and I really liked the look. It was so much sleeker looking, and I would have gone for it, but I was just in the mood for the fun sneakers. They definitely do make for a funkier look!

    Both outfits are fab! I especially like #1 and the way you've cuffed your sleeves on the jacket.

    Fun and fab x 2!

    I love those pants and envy your ability to wear that lavendery colour.

    I wish I could wear harem pants like this... You look fabulous.
