Earrings: gift from my lovely aunts; Silver cuff: belonged to my granny; Taupe drapey jacket: Reitmans; Tee: The Gap; Pencil Skirt: Old Navy; Sandals: Browns.

I read an article recently about interesting ways to pair basics, and they suggested wearing a teeshirt and pencil skirt with a pair of Keds (or similar sneakers). I wasn’t especially feeling like wearing sneakers today, but felt these Birkenstock-inspired leather sandals had a similar casual vibe. Typically when I wear a pencil skirt, I do pair it with something a bit more “office stereotypical” (for instance), but I love this more casual take. The drapey jacket worked with the neutral feeling I was going for and is casual enough that it also worked with the tee and sandals, while still complementing the officey pencil skirt. I would wear a variation on this often – maybe next time with a graphic tee, jeans jacket and wedges.

  1. Such a great neutral look! The pop of color in your shades is awesome as well. I just put up a post on my grey tone outfit for this week… feel free to check it out ow.ly/QhRSd
