Some Shopping Results

So I got to go shopping the other day, and I'm wearing some of the things I purchased!  I took your advice girls when it came to basics for any wardrobe.  Thank you, by the way!

Can you believe I didn't already own a white button down shirt?  I know that's kind of sad!  I found this three  quarter length sleeve one from Forever 21.

I already own 2 pencil skirts (one of which needs taken in quite a few inches so I haven't been able to wear it lately) , so I was looking for a skirt that was a solid color and that could work with a lot of different tops.  I found this one from Forever 21 as well.  It came with this red belt.  I can choose to wear the skirt without the belt if red doesn't go with the top I'm wearing.  But gray can go with most colors, can it not?  I was really trying to buy things that can be worn in many different ways, so it helps with having more options with what to wear!  

I like how this skirt has pockets!!  I noticed myself throughout the day putting my hands in my pockets!  Not too many skirts have that, but I like the fact that this one does!

I also purchased a comfy striped t-shirt from Charlotte Russe and two lacy long sleeve sheer tops, one cream colored and one black.  I bought both a black and white tank to go underneath each.  I've seen girls were these lace tops with just a bra underneath and showing the rest of the skin where the lace doesn't cover, but that's just not for me!  I would not feel comfortable showing that much skin.....

Here's a black and white picture, though I'd give that a try:

What do you think, more black and white?

I also got a few other things that weren't mentioned above, I will be sure to show you girls soon!  I was very pleased with my findings!

Shirt, skirt, and earrings: Forever 21

Shoes: Apt 9

Bag of the Moment: Payless

Ooo, I really love the outfit. The skirt seems prettty perfect. I'm on the look out for a similar kind of skirt.
And the effect of the black and white picture is very cool.

Tasha, lovely, I hope everything is going well for you!

I agree, a withe blouse is such a basic and goes with ... huh ... EVERYTHING! :D But I must admit, that I don't have such a nice item in my whole entire closet! o_O

You look absolutely dressy and sophisticated. The pop of red gives the certain something to this look :)

Ah, you look absolutely gorgeous! Loving the hair :)

The skirt with the red belt is super cute. I'm sure you can match it with lots of tops. Skirts with pockets are awesome.
