Working It

I found these photos of a work outfit that I took months ago but never had the opportunity to post it. The dress code at work is business casual, but sometimes you wouldn't think so with some of the stuff people wear into work. Even though it is Jeans Friday, you shouldn't wear cropped jeans with tennis shoes to work. Anyway here I am in my office hoping no one comes by.

Top: BCBG, Skirt: Express, Belt: Forever 21, Shoes: Aldo

I tend to wear this skirt alot because it is a great basic black skirt. I have a few basic items that I really love and have worn them out. For example a pair of flip flops from Target. I know it is nothing special, but it was the perfect shade of pewter that went with everything! It wasn't one of those foam flip flops, but one of the nicer ones?

Now when I buy a basic item that I love, I buy two of them. I always thought why would I need two of the same thing? Well, now I see it is worth it to spend the extra money for another one if it is something you use all the time and can wear out. That's why I bought two of the burnout tees from Express that I wore in this post. One in white and the other in grey.

Do you buy basic items you love in multiples?
