Accessorizing a White Oxford

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? 


  1. I’m still looking for the perfect button down white shirt, it has been hard to find one that fits just right.

  2. 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 (

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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!
