For starters, I got this skirt from Old Navy:
High Waist Skirt, $25 (It has a cute exposed zipper in the back- fun!)
I also bought this sweater at the bargain price of $9, although on the website it appears to be quite a bit more than that:
Button-front Cape, $34.99
I also got a cute scoop-neck tee with a satin trim along the neckline. I can't find it on Old Navy's website, so I'll have to take a picture with an outfit at some point to show you. I think it's going to be a versatile top for me because it's long enough to wear untucked, but it also looks good tucked into the new skirt. I have a handful of other basic black tops to incorporate into my black weekend uniform, but I'm also going to keep an eye out for some comfortable, but flattering and stylish black pants as well as some interesting black accessories.
I kind of like these other options, also from Old Navy:
Lace Trim Blouson Top, $26.50
Ruffled Button-Down Blouse, $16.99
Ponte-Knit Trousers, $34.50
Black Crystal Necklace, $12.50
Black Beaded Bracelet, $10.50
Maybe I'll allow myself a smidge of leeway in the accessories department , or at least in the jewelry department. Any thoughts? Do you have a dress code for your job? What does it entail? Leave a comment and tell me all about it!
