Manic Monday: Work Style in Black and White

I think I’ve made it pretty obvious right now how much I love wearing black and white, and if you’re new here, let me introduce you to the reasons why.  🙂

Such a color combination is sleek, sophisticated, and always chic.

Skirt:  Eloquii (Available here)
Jacket:  Eloquii (Available here)

While I love the combo, it can border on boring, which is why I look for more interesting or unique fabrications of my favorite basics – carwarsh pleats, windowpane plaid, layered looks, etc.

Carwash pleats are a big trend for fall, so I was super excited to find this skirt from Eloquii.  It required some alterations (and I’d love for it to be just a little shorter and slimmer fit), but so cool to find a straight from the runway style at an affordable price!

Clutch:  Target
Ring:  The Limited
Heels:  Chelsea & Zoe (Available at Kohl’s here)

The windowpane plaid vest has zip-off sleeves, so it can be worn in multiple ways.  Such versatility!!

In addition to the vest, I paired the carwash skirt with a twist on your classic button down shirt and added royal blue heels and a red clutch.  I would throw on a basic cardigan or blazer for work and chilly fall temps.

For today’s last look, I’m wearing another amazing Eloquii find – a layered look skirt, which I paired with a simple ivory camisole and boyfriend cardigan.

I apologize that it was a little dark when I snapped the pics, but I was excited to share this look, which I’ll be wearing to work very soon!
