Outfit: Workday Wednesday

Start with the basics! A simple black pencil skirt and sweater is an easy neutral base for any work outfit. Then, add some colorful accessories. Having a different scarf or necklace for everyday of the week is much less expensive then a different pencil skirt. Adding textured tights and fun boots also adds dimension to the outfit. The scarf was a gift from my California best friend, and definitely cheers me up on the rainy Oregon days.

Honesty, I wear some combination of a black pencil skirt and a colorful piece at least twice a week. My basic black sweater is a go to as well. What items in your work wardrobe are essentials?
