Plum Corduroy + Sheer Knit = Date Night

Uh oh, I’m obsessed with my new plum corduroys.  Which means you’re going to be seeing them in lots and lots of outfits.  They might just warrant their own series like my red jeans did.  You can check out The Red Denim Diaries to see the looks those jeans have been featured in.

But today, my red jeans are green with envy over the plum perfection I’ve discovered.  These skinny plum corduroys from Kut from the Kloth are lightweight, super comfortable and have the perfect amount of stretch.  They’ve already made it through my outfit rotation a few times even though I’ve only had them for two weeks.

Here’s how I paired them up for a casual date night with my hubby.

It’s Your Turn:  Give me some outfit inspiration and tell me how you’d like to see these paired up.  Tell me in the comments!
