Green Wool Jacket with toning pants

Here's the green wool jacket worn with new toning dark pants.
I'm calling the pants khaki, but the label says chocolate as the colour, either way as soon as I saw them in the store they were in my basket.
My picture is quite poor quality but I think the colour of the pants is picked up enough in the tweed of the jacket.
I have a salmon pink blouse with the collar out which I think stops it being too heavy around the face/neck.

Light brown pants

I dare say these light brown checked pants are going too. I have pants which match the brown jacket but are too large on the waist, I shall alter them to fit, and wear them instead.

OK so I am NOT going to buy any more light coloured checked pants alright!
