My second inspiration post is from Hilary Duff… who was looking chic in a bandage metallic skirt and oxford pumps. When I first saw this ensemble I thought it was so simple, yet so cute… and a great look to mimic at the office (with a metallic pencil skirt rather than a mini bandage)! I love the simple black “school girl” cardigan, the shimmer of the metallic and the pop of the black and white oxford pump. The only thing I changed was wearing a metallic pencil skirt (that I got on sale at New York & Company after Christmas) to make it office appropriate. My oxford heels are one of my favorite pairs to wear to work because they are super fun with zippers on the back and being open-toed, so I am always looking for new inspiration and new ways to wear them. I also think this outfit is very winterish, with the black and metallic, so for a more colorful spring approach, I might wear a bright orange, purple or pink cardigan or add a pop with a colorful bag!
