Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn...

When's the last time you put on a black mock-neck sweater, black jeans and black loafers? It's a really simple look - and yet iconic. Audrey Hepburn did it best - but it doesn't mean the rest of us can't try. Mind you, I muddied the waters a bit by adding in a colorful scarf - but the scarf was just so pretty I couldn't resist.
