Class with a Little Purrrr - Work Day Outfit

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
Solid turtleneck
Sweater for layering
Thin belt  - solid neutral colors and a few with fun prints
Luxe safari shoes
Unique, vintage inspired necklace
Statement ring



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).

Cheers!
