Accessorizing a White Oxford
Old Navy oxford shirt / American Eagle jeans / American Eagle boots / Knee-high socks c/o Legwear Loft / Bennett Satchel Handbag c/o Handbag Haven
If there’s one item every woman should have in her closet, it’s a classic white oxford shirt. You can wear it alone, layer it underneath a sweater or unbutton a few of the top buttons and go as a schoolgirl for Halloween. Kidding. I chose to go for the first option and tried to keep my outfit simple by adding just a few accessories.
For fall, I’m loving boots (but what girl isn’t?) I like to pair my taller boots with knee highs to keep my legs extra warm and add a little style. I absolutely love these ice dust knee high socks from Lemon Legwear (via Legwear Loft). I have both the pewter and almond color and they go with anything. Since I’m petite and have skinny legs, it’s so hard to find socks- especially knee-highs or leg warmers- that fit and look good. So I’m very thankful that Legwear Loft carries a variety of sizes and styles.
Another accessory I’m loving lately is this grey satchel from Handbag Haven. I have plenty of black and brown bags, but I was lacking a nice grey one, so now my collection is complete. Lastly, I threw on a pale yellow floral necklace to add a little color to my simple fall outfit.
What are your favorite fall accessories?
Great classic look, love the boots.
I’m excited to wear boots now that it’s colder and cozy scarves too!
Loving those cozy socks Rachel…such a cute fall look!
I love this look. A white oxford is a class and those socks are perfect for fall!
CUTE! love the bag, definitely a great accessory!
Love the boots and bag. A simple yet stylish fall outfit!
I love pairing socks with boot as well – yours look so cozy!
thanks- they are!
The boot socks look so cute and cozy! I’m wearing a white oxford on my blog today too 🙂
thank you! great minds think alike haha
Ha, I like the costume idea 😉 Very cute boots/socks combo
Love the boots with socks sticking out-so cute. Sad to say I did the white oxford schoolgirl thing for Halloween in college-yikes. Looks much better the way you styled it 🙂
I’m still looking for the perfect button down white shirt, it has been hard to find one that fits just right.
I’m wearing knee socks from Legwear Loft in my post today too! Too funny! I love how you styled the white shirt! Beautiful as always!
loved your post with them, too!
I’ma huge fan of oxfords. I prefer the ralph lauren slim fit oxfords – they last literally for years, and can look casual or dressed up depending on how you wear it. Great post! – Claire (clairewasthere.com)
thank you Claire!
Loooove it! Boots + long socks are one of my favorite things about cold weather!!
loving the knee socks — so cute!
Those socks are so cute!
thanks- affordable, too!
I totally agree with you about the white oxford…it is always my go to piece when I am at a loss for what to wear. I have been meaning to check the men’s section at Old Navy for a slightly oversized white button-up to wear with leggings.
I don’t wear my oxford nearly as much as I should. I usually keep it for interviews but I have a nice fitted one that has some light ruching on the sides… and it still has tags on it. Wearing it tomorrow!
Love the cozy Legwear Loft socks! I went with the leather leggings from them, but I’m such a fan of the tall socks when they’re worn with skinnies or with a dress!
ooh the leather leggings look nice, too!
I know this is the most classic shirt and everyone should own one…but confession; I don’t! I just haven’t found one that I love. I always have my eye out though…fingers crossed for something soon!
I was the same way until I got this one!
love this head to toe!
Your outfit is so cute! I LOVE IT
i love the boots with the oxford! the socks make it!
