Happy Monday, all! I am loving this fall weather, I hope it doesn't go away too quickly... we had snow in Minneapolis last week! Yikes. I was able to take these photos on the lovely Nicollet Island a few miles from my apartment, and I love the beautiful leaves in the background. 

Today, I've a got a basic neutral outfit with a fun accessory - something you can pull together with things already in your closet. The basics are a light grey sweater and navy slacks - these are great pieces to have in your arsenal for work, they travel great, and comfortable, and wash up well. I'm wearing this with a cute silky mini scarf in a maroon and navy pattern with a matching red lip. I've added some simple silver accessories - a bracelet and watch stack and pearl earrings (always, haha). Finally, I'm wearing backless nude heels to tie it all together.

I really like these kinds of outfits where I can use my basic staples - dress pants and solid crew-neck sweater, and add a cute shoe, scarf, vest, necklace, etc. to make it an interesting outfit.
