Recent Purchases - Express (again) Including a Very Versatile Top

Well I did some more damage at the Express recently. I was taking advantage of the winter clearance, again. I can't complain, I've gotten some really great things at 1/4 the cost.

I got these two awesome pairs of work pants for these colder months. The one on the left is tweed with an inner lining to keep me warm, it has a lace strip down the outside hem of both legs. The one on the right is a classic pinstripe, but it's wool. Nice and heavy, but very soft. The best part about both pairs is they run almost $100 each, I got them both for under $40! Score!

I was so thrilled to get this tunic. I originally wanted it in gray, but opted for a lighter brown color instead. I have so much gray (I love it), and I wanted it in a color I thought would be more versatile.

I put together some outfits with the tunic and I want everyone's opinion on which look is best even if you like them all. These were ways in which I would want to wear the shirt, let me know if I'm way off or I got it right. Sorry for not trying the outfits on, I didn't have a photographer when I took these. All looks can be with the tunic as is or over a long sleeve shirt to keep you warmer.

So what do you guys think? Do you like the looks? Do you hate them? Do you have a favorite or a suggestion? Let me know!

I definitely like the first option! I'm not sure about the leggings, I'd have to see how long the top is. But this is more for personal reasons--I think my buttlooks huge in leggings so I like to be able to cover it up with the sweater! haha The flats are definitely cute too! What about skinny jeans and your steve madden boots?
