Outfit Post: One Pair of Pants Styled Three Ways

I'm starting this outfit post with a confession: I think work clothes are boring. 

Shopping for my work wardrobe feels obligatory like a dental cleaning or taking out the trash. Even so, work pants are a staple in my life five days a week. I decided if I must buy them, I'm not paying retail.

This pair if Limited The Cassidy Fit crops were a consignment sale find I paid $5 for. The pants were originally priced at $10 but I snatched them up at a 50% sale. 

I wear these pants spring into the start of fall. Here are the pants styled three thrifty ways.

Look 1: Spring to Fall Floral

Styled with a GAP sweater, $2.50 via consignment sale

Look 2: Corporate and Casual

Dressed with a Rubbish jacket, $5 via consignment sale

Look 3: More Flowers for Fall

Paired with an Eci sweater, $2 via Salvation Army

Toddler Bonus

Sleeper: Carter's, $0.25 via Salvation Army
Step 2 Rocking Chair, $2 via Salvation Army

How do you mix and match your thrifty finds?
