This outfit is very casual, but sometimes you need something easy.
One of the nice things about my job is that it’s as casual or dressy as I choose. Generally I try to strike a nice balance and not wear clothes that would be ruined by a coffee pot dumping on me, or a crate from Costco getting me dirty (think white pants – though I love all the white jeans popping up all over). Depending on my ever changing schedule I can adjust my outfits. If it’s a really busy day with lots of deliveries and organizing then I wear something easy like this. If I have meetings and know I’ll be meeting with clients I can dress it up.
Occasionally I walk into stores selling pretty office clothes and wish I could wear fancy heels on a daily basis. But what I don’t gain from the extra height (like I really need it anyway!) I get by not having to constantly sit. I’m up and about and running around all day long – and that’s a nice perk.
And for running around nothing beats these little leather driving moccasins. The raw leather stretched out just perfectly and are now soft and supple. I think they’re such a classic preppy look. While I’m not that preppy, I do enjoy the occasional piece that reminds me of my life on the east coast a long long time ago.
