From head to toe, I am wearing:
White, embellished hairband- J.Crew (sale!)
Silver, antiqued locket- American Eagle Outfitters
Indigo, fluttery scoop tank top- Banana Republic
Silvery-grey cardigan- Banana Republic
Skinny, charcoal belt- Ann Taylor (sale!)

Dove-Grey round-toe heels- Victor, by Victor Alfaro (available at Bergner's)
This outfit is great for many occasions, and while it could be worn at night, it is well suited for a spring day. Today, when I wore this outfit, I attended a breakfast/seminar event on campus. In attendance were faculty, staff, and grad students from across campus. I wasn't sure what to wear (especially since faculty were also guests at the breakfast), so I aired on the side of caution by combining business casual with "regular" casual.
I combined these styles by dressing up my cardigan and tank with a skinny belt and dressing down the outfit with a stylish yet comfortable pair of straight-cut jeans. I mention the cut of my jeans because they are on-trend, but they are modest enough to wear to casual work events. These jeans are also flattering to a broader spectrum of body types than your everyday-skinny-jean. I love these jeans and highly recommend them to all who love skinny jeans and all who want to wear skinny jeans but fear their "side-effects."
So, I've introduced you all to my everyday fashion staples- what are yours?
