I started my planning over the weekend and ended up wearing one of the outfits and sharing it on Instagram:
Express / Cami: Express / Necklace: Stella & Dot / Jeans: Express / Shoes: Nordstrom
The inspiration for this outfit came from a look Brenna (read my Coffee Date with her here) shared on Instagram:
Next I browsed Pinterest for some ideas and loved this look, plus I knew I had very similar pieces:

Tried it, loved it, will definitely wear it this fall:
Express / Cami: Express / Necklace: Express / Jeans: Express (Similar) / Shoes: Nordstrom / Bag: Amazon
Next I really wanted try pairing this jacket with some colors other than basic black and white. Even though I don't need anything this professional, my blue cami kind of somewhat underused so I liked the idea of incorporating blue like this:

And here's my casual interpretation:
Express / Cami: Express / Necklace: Target (Similar) / Jeans: Express / Shoes: Aldo (Similar)
To be honest this was actually my least favorite of the group. I like the blue and grey, but maybe I would have liked it better with black shoes like the original set? Or white pants? I'm not sure of the solution but this one is still a work in progress.
I wore this jacket with a bright pink cami over the summer (see it here) and wanted to see if I could make that concept work for cooler weather, so I found another pink and grey pairing that I used as my template (original pin here). It started to rain at this point so there's not outdoors, top-down photo for the pink cami outfit, but here's a side-by-side of the Pin vs. interpretation:
Jacket: Express / Cami: Express / Necklace: Nordstrom / Jeans: Express / Shoes: Sole Society
Without the plaid and with the more vibrant pink I feel like my version isn't very Fall-ish. I still like the outfit enough to wear it as-is...but maybe in the Spring.
And here's a final front-view of the four options for the jacket:
For the next couple of Tuesdays I'll be doing similar posts based around a different clothing piece to get myself organized and hopefully help give you some outfit ideas for pieces you own that are the same or similar!
