Jacket – Forever 21 | Blouse – Forever 21 | Pants – The Limited (similar)| Shoes – Bandolino (similar)

Just to show you that I actually wear the outfits I put together in my collage posts, here’s me actually wearing my Work Luncheon outfit from last Wednesday.  I really love all the different textures in this outfit and I think it’s a great way to showcase a monochromatic look.  It’s all the same basic winter white color but the gold in the blouse and the sparkle and texture of the jacket keep it from looking too bland or too much like a uniform.

Speaking of this jacket, if you have a spare $29.80 I would order it STAT from Forever 21 (free shipping today!)  It’s really good quality, fits nicely, and will class up just about any outfit.  It’s a Chanel look for a non-Chanel price.  Seriously, can you just picture it with jeans and just about any color shirt underneath?  Or over a black dress? Or, you know, kick out the additional $19.80 for the shirt I’m wearing and you can pair them together with just about anything and look fabulous.

And just so you don’t think this is all I wore on my commute:

The gray wool coat makes an appearance!  Not pictured (yet): my hat and my gloves.
