I don't know about you, but the idea of a white blouse and pair of khaki slacks never gets old when getting dressed for work. Lately, I have found myself reaching for my khaki pants twice a week because of the comfort and work appropriate style. Sometimes the execution of a white blouse and khaki combo can become a little safe and boring, so I have come up with a few ways to spice it up. Two things you must know about me, I love color and statement necklaces. A splash of color and  statement jewelry can transform any outfit. A white blouse and khaki pants are traditional neutral colors, so it will take some adding of color and accessories to make the look interesting. To make the look more fun, try different styles of blouses, like sleeveless, peplum, or a more voluminous top. Try color blocking your shoes with your necklace, or reach for a pair of deeper brown sandals that offset the neutral khaki color. Last, opt for a purse that is structured and edgy. Once you get these looks down, this combo will be your go-to outfit on a weekly basis.
