every week i like to showcase one outfit that’s work appropriate. for today’s ootd i reached for a simple black pencil skirt and white blouse. what could be more office friendly than that? a pair of black pumps would be perfect with this combination, but i decided to elevate the look with accessories that coordinate – all in the color orange. as you can see accessories can change the entire look of an outfit. think of them as men do a tie and shirt – smart men know that when these two articles of clothing are changed the entire ensemble takes on a new look. think about it. accessories are key when it comes to keeping your style fresh. so be on the hunt for belts, shoes, handbags, scarves, jewelry, and slowly build your accessory wardrobe that will instantly change an outfit from drab to glam.

Love this!! jodie
thanks, jodie! what could be easier than black and white?!
Love the Orange – seems more chic than red!
You look great!…I check in every day to see and learn!
i’m thrilled you have a daily check-in! once we master our wardrobe it’s one less thing to worry about when we head out the door. then we’re free to chase our dreams, or even just tackle the grocery store…
Yyou always look soon good. Love the way you pose. I had my husband take photos of me at The Getty. I tried to pose like you. Failure!! You’ve got it together girl!
