Basic and Classic

I work in a corporate environment,  so I invest in a lot of basic pieces for my work wardrobe. I stick with neutral colors that I can coordinate with other pieces that I already own. Neutral colors makes it easier for me to add color but still maintain the corporate dress code.  Basic pieces for me are button down shirts in a variety of colors. Trousers in all styles, a great fitting jacket, skirts, dresses and classic pumps.

Having these basic staples in my closet makes it so much easier for me to coordinate an outfit to wear in mornings.  I am not one of those people that rolls out the bed as soon as the alarm goes off, I roll over and hit the snooze button a couple of times before I actually get up.

I give my self exactly one hour to get ready and head out the door. So for me staples are a must, it makes my life so much easier in the morning. Visible Monday - Not Dead Yet Style here I come.





Adding pearls to any outfit gives it a classic look.




And a great classic bag and pumps completes this look.

  5. Lucy, I totally agree, having neutral basics is not only a wardrobe staple but a must! It took me years to figure this out but when I finally did, its changed my lifestyle and enhanced my wardrobe tenfold. Love this outfit, especially the pinstripes and simple elegance of the added pearls.
