A new outfit favorite

While shopping this past weekend at both Target and the J Crew outlet I picked up another gingham shirt and a black pullover sweater. I feel as though I've been waiting all week to wear this outfit and I've decided its a new favorite of mine. The weather is pretty overcast and chilly here today so I'm glad for the layers and extra added bit of warmth as I try not to freeze in my office.



See what I mean about this new favorite outfit thing? Maybe I just need to go back to simple outfits that I feel comfortable and confident in. Such as this one.. that I have to try not to wear every day.

Are there any pieces or outfit combinations that you just feel the most confident in?

And linking up with Mix and Match Fashion for  What I wore to work today!

  1. Very classic and preppy! I am realizing that I am at my most confident in a suit or a dress (with sleeves) if I have to look really professional. On a day to day basis, I feel the most like "me" in a pencil skirt and fun top though.

    1. Thanks Jeannie! I love pencil skirts too but I get cold sometimes... black tights are always a default for me.

  5. Oh my goodness ... I wore pretty much the same shirt today! The weather was overcast here too and a gingham button down with a crewneck sweater is my go to outfit for this type of weather. It is polished and put together, yet super comfy. I love your loafers too, very cute!

    1. TWINS! I'm convinced if we ever met in RL we'd show up wearing the same thing.

  7. Dang! I've been looking for a black crewneck like that but sadly, J. Crew Factory is sold out in my size! I love wearing sweaters over patterned shirts with a fun necklace. It definitely is a go-to outfit for me, too!

  10. I really like that shirt. I passed up on a similar gingham shirt on J.Crew in November and I regret it like every other week. I'm also looking for a black v-neck sweater! so many things....
