Fiscally Feasible Fashion: Classically Pretty


Today’s affordable work outfit is a classic combination: pencil skirt, patterned blouse, and pretty cardigan.  Adding nude shoes and nude belt let’s you pull the outfit together without distracting from the basic pieces.  And yes, the skirt is from Talbot’s.  Don’t let the Mom jeans fool you, Talbot’s has decent staples at low prices if you know how to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Lotus Earring (Banana Republic, $17)

Pima Cotton Caridgan (J.Jill, $25)

Draped Floral Top (Forever21, $20)

Skinny Patent Belt (Asos, $11)

Seasonless Wool Blend Skirt (Talbot’s, $65)

BDG Suede Pumps (Urban Outfitters, $48)
