Post-holiday, there was a slew of back-to-work themed emails from Net-a-Porter, Shopbop, etc that came into my inbox, and one of them, in particular, caught my eye. I think it was from a Net-a-Porter editor. She maintained that her M-F winter work uniform consisted of pointy-toe booties, trousers, and a chunky knit sweater. There was something about this combo that I loved – interesting, yet accessible, maybe – but I wanted to add my own personal twist.
So I took the chunky knit + trouser pairing and added some white booties. I especially like the white boots with pinstriped trousers (and I’m still crushing hard on white booties with black and tan)….but I think this outfit totally works for work.
sweater: Free People (size XS for reference) – I love the swingy shape of this sweater, and it’s perfect for layering, but it is a little scratchy if you tried to wear it alone.
bag: old, similar (similar in shape only….having trouble finding a good black and tan one – anyone else come across one?)

Get Yo’ White Bootie On
I know I keep harping on white booties….but my gut is telling me that this trend will be around for a while. If you make one purchase this Spring….THESE.
