WORK BASICS

Banana Republic pinstripe one-button blazer (last seen here), J.Crew tie front trousers, Ivanka Trump gray suede pumps (old; love this alternative for fall), J.Crew gray tshirt with gold embellishment (old), Zara crossbody bag with scarf handle (removed the scarf)

My favorite workwear neutrals are navy and gray. The colors are reminiscent of menswear, especially men's suiting. I purchased these pants a few months ago because they were such a good deal. I packed them for a work conference and the fabric was perfect. Since they are wool I was afraid that they would be too heavy or itchy. They are actually surprisingly lightweight but still thick enough to wear in the fall. I have been so in love with this blazer too and can't stop wearing it (when I can get away with it since it's still pretty hot here!) I can't wait for cooler temperature.
