I got some great feedback on my red skinny jeans outfit post yesterday, so I figured I would give another one a whirl. Let me know what you think.
This is what I call a "day at the office" look. I took a few simple, staple, solid colored items and gave it some character with inexpensive accessories. I feel like everything I am wearing is timeless and can be pieces that remain in your closet for years to come. You can recreate this ENTIRE look for $200 or less. Each piece listed below is less than $42.
My philosophy..."You don't have to spend a lot of money to look like you did."
All you need is a couple of statement items and you are all set. As most of my girlfriends know, I love a little (okay, a lot of) leopard. But as you can see, you don't have to go crazy with it. A little here and there little will go a long way.
Staples you need for this look:
Solid pencil skirt
Sweater for layering
Thin belt - solid neutral colors and a few with fun prints
Luxe safari shoes
Unique, vintage inspired necklace
Rust Turlteneck - Zara (similar)
Cap Sleeve Cropped Sweater - Old Navy
Pencil Skirt - Forever 21 (similar)
Belt - Forever 21 (similar)
Wedges - Payless (yes, Payless!!!)
Bag - Target
Necklace - Target (similar)
Rose earrings - Forever 21 (similar)
Nails - OPI Already Famous (color still intact from the DIY Shellac)
And there you go...class with some sass (and a little bit of purr).
