I love it when I find new ways to combine old stand-bys in my wardrobe. Trendy pieces are fun to mix up your wardrobe with, but you really need to have a good wardrobe base to work with. This denim shirt and black pencil skirt and these ankle boots are definitely part of mine. What makes this outfit interesting is that the ankle boots and shirt are typically worn more causally. The black skirt dresses things up and I threw on some dangly earrings to boot. You can easily change up the color or pattern of the button up or the pencil skirt to make this combo work for you!
