Now that I work in Downtown Chicago, I have a good excuse to invest in a fun work wardrobe. Neutrals and pastels have always been a favorite of mine, so when I came across these basics… they went straight to my cart!
I can mix and match this skirt with black, grays, blues, and other pastels, making a great base for multiple outfits. It runs a little big, so order a size down (if your a 0 go petite! I’m 5″8′ and the petite isn’t too short). The white shirt is a must have, the perfect shirt to go with all of my pants and skirts. I literally wear it once or twice a week probably!
I quickly learned on my first meeting downtown, heels are not meant to be worn on your daily commute. My first day I was unprepared, after an afternoon lunch meeting, and walking to and from the train, I came home with blistered feet and new scuffed shoes. That’s where the work tote is literally necessary, and worth investing in something sturdy that will last. This one fits my heels and portfolio perfectly and is on sale right now for half off!
