Simplicity at its Best

Basically the title of my post says it all… this outfit is extremely simple to throw together and is so comfortable.  Unfortunately, it is only a weekend outfit because it’s a bit too casual for work, but I still love it!  I was inspired by Lucky magazine’s spread on how to mix and match a few items for A Month of Outfits” from the November 2008 issue. I have kept that magazine and tabbed out that section because it’s always been a source of inspiration for me!  Anyway, I love the hidden polka dot pattern on this short-sleeved cape jacket and adding a pair of plaid flats to complete the look.  For me, it’s the perfect combination of comfy and cute.

Savvy Stripes

There is nothing better than a classic turtleneck with a simple pattern like this black and white striped one. It is a great piece for me to wear to work because it keeps me warm (during the winter I have wear fingerless gloves to stay warm). Also, to keep from getting bored of pants and long-sleeve shirts during the winter, I might keep my scarf on during work as a warm accessory, otherwise the necklace works as my main accessory. Of course my shoes are where my personality comes out and this purple suede pair has done well for me in the office and out on the weekends. Also, I have decided to start bringing different purses to work because otherwise I don’t use them. I used to go visit clients for my old job, so I always wanted to make sure I was dressed professionally from head to toe, including my purse. Now that I am in the office most of the time, this little clutch fits all my necessities and makes me feel a bit more glamorous.
