OOTD 1/9/2012 - Plain Jane, With A Twist

What's more basic than camel trousers and a turtleneck?  Or so, one would think.  Yet, by adding a brightly colored turtleneck, I was able to punch it up a bit.  My particular turtleneck is from Holiday 2009 and the color is called "light berry"; however, you can use whatever vivid color you already have available in your closet.

And of course, imo, no outfit is complete without a bit of animal print.  So instead of basic black or brown shoes, I went with my patent tortoise Juliet pumps.

So, there you have's outfit is basic.  However, it's anything but, plain jane.  Hope everyone has a fabulous Monday!
