On a recent trip to my sister’s, I found myself in need of borrowing a shirt! …likely story, right? Always happy to oblige, she let me pick out a black and turquoise tribal tank top that she found on sale on Anthropologie. It just so happens that I had a lovely necklace given to me by one of my former students that I thought would look fabulous with the tank top.
This handmade necklace came from Embellish Boutique in Chicago. I believe it is hand stamped metal and the interior is actually woven fabric.
The necklace really popped with the tribal tank top.
To keep the tank top work appropriate, I added my faithful denim blazer from Urban Outfitters and full gray skirt from H&M.
Lastly, I added my newly found asymmetrical orange flats
With that, my tribal Tuesday look was complete!

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I wear my gray skirt and denim blazer very regularly (as I’m sure you’ve seen on my blog)! However, people always ask me about them (ie “Oh, is that new?”). By adding different shoes, jewelry and shirts, these pieces do look new again. I love giving them new life! Given that I have had each piece for over five years, you can tell that these practical pieces really do not go out of style. Rotating your practical pieces is completely budget-friendly. Even with classic pieces, I like to keep a look out for a good price and high quality. I got both of these off season, which contributed to their affordable prices.
2) Speaking of practical staples for work, there are many good lists and examples of work-wear basics online. Marie Claire has a good list, and Real Simple includes tips for where you may want to consider spending less/more.
