Cropped top ($59.50; An update on eyelet, the boxy shape and elbow-grazing sleeves make this top perfect for layering under a white button-down or silk tank.

Earrings ($39.50; These mixed-metal studs are business in the front and party in the back. They add a touch of something special for when your hair is pulled back into a ponytail.

Sandals ($148; This shoe is an outfit-maker. Step into the printed lace ups and pair them with any neutral ensemble. Feeling bold? Style them with another print for a more playful look.

Combined Total Cost: $247
