I'm a true believer that you can were basic pieces and still have an eye-catching outfit. On this day, all I wanted to wear was a pullover and slacks but being the "go big or go home" person I am, I can't just throw on a white button and black slacks. I started with the houndstooth slacks because they are a good twist on a classic. I paired them with the sweater because the color combination...I love any pale color with gray. To top it off, I threw on my faux pearl and diamond studs and a pointed toe pump.
