Staples

Top: Old Navy | Skirt: Forever 21 (similar) | Shoes: Express (similar) | Belt: Forever 21 (similar) | Necklace (old) & Bracelet: Target | Ring: Forever 21

I have had a few requests on work attire and what some staples are that hang in my closet. So, I thought I would share three basics that can get you through all four seasons, no matter where you live and are perfect for the office. I did this post back in September for Annie and figured why not post again here.

Chambray Top (aka - the Blue Jean Shirt)
Okay, I will admit that I wasn't a fan at first, but my mind quickly changed. I am now a proud owner of not one, but two chambray shirts. One is plain and the one you see here showcases another fave of mine, polka dots. Ladies, IMO, you can't go wrong with chambray. It's like a LBD, you can were it  so many ways and with so many things. Get one, if you haven't already!

Pencil Skirt
Keeping this one simple. Every lady needs at least 3-4 solid pencil skirts in their closet. They can be remixed over and over and over again. My choices would be khaki, black and creme. Again, dress them up or dress them down, just make sure they aren't hoochie short. Right above the knees is always best.

Red Shoes
We have all seen the Wizard of Oz, right? Well, let's keep Dorothy's legacy alive. Red shoes can be paired with numerous colors and patterns and is a color for all seasons. It doesn't matter, wedges, heels, flats, boots...just a pair. You will be surprised at how much you wear them.

Easy as 1-2-3!
