Denim Shirt, Black A-Line Skirt

GIVEAWAY TO A LUCKY SUBSCRIBER AUGUST 1st AS A THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

JOIN OUR MAILING LIST TODAY TO BE INCLUDED IN THE DRAWING!

Denim and black go together well but you don’t have to limit yourself to black slacks or a pencil skirt. An A-Line skirt can add a relaxed element to your outift.

Knotted shirts will definitely be a hot item for fall, so why not tie your own and be in on the trend?

Just use a shirt that isn’t too fitted and you should have no trouble creating a nice waistline effect.

This shirt came from Crown & Ivy and is super soft.  I found similar at Macy’s on sale for $19.99 through today!

The skirt is so old, I have no idea where I bought it.  Similar (and cuter!) options here.

My gladiator sandals are from last year. I’m in dire need of a new brown pair. Maybe I’ll find an end of the season sale!

I chose large round gold earrings and LauralE bracelet as my only jewelry,

I have no clue why I look sunburned in this shot.  These pics were all taken within minutes of each other. 🙄

Crossbody is from a boutique in Tennessee.

How about Twice Baked Potatoes for dinner tonite!

Gray Sweater With Ruffles | Black Pants

Day 5 of Womens’ Workwear.  The weekend is over and it’s back-to-work Monday!  Styling a gray sweater and black pants.

This sweater by William Rast is a great transitional piece and is now on sale more than 50%. It is lightweight enough to wear in the summer (as long as there is air conditioning), but will be practical moving through fall.

If you don’t have a pair of go-to black pants, then that should be your life’s ambition.  Okay maybe not, but a good pair will take you through every season of the year.

I’ve had the clutch for quite awhile.  Other options here.

My necklace is pearl and black ribbon and came from JCrew years ago.  It doesn’t go with many tops I own so I was happy that it looked good with this sweater. 

Below is a gallery of awesome pieces from Target.  They will make you yearn for fall…almost.

My cage shoes are from JCP and were purchased last summer at the end of the season.

Similar cage shoes here.

Navy Dress With White Piping

I love a dress. If you struggle putting pieces together, dresses are the way to go! Just add shoes, a couple of accessories and done!

This Sharagamo from JCP is very comfortable and slimming.  The navy color will take me right into fall until I decide I’m over summer white for the year.

Pumps are BCBGeneration.  The nude color is so versatile.

I have worn these teaching all day many times but they aren’t as comfortable as block heels or wedges.  I mainly reserve pumps for church but they definitely dress up an outfit, even if it’s jeans!

Same Michael Kors crossbody I’ve styled many times this summer.  Getting plenty of use out of it before I have to put it away for the winter.
