For today’s post, I’m excited to share a fun collaboration with Nine West where I styled three pairs of shoes for different meetings in my day-to-day life. I work in financial services which is client-focused, so my work attire can depend on what type of offices (some formal, some super casual) and contacts I’ll be meeting with each day.
Similar gingham shirt and swing trench coat
For a breakfast meeting, I’ve paired classic navy pants with a button-up blouse finished off with leopard-print loafers. The outfit is tailored enough to be business casual, while these flat, comfy smoking slippers are great for running around and commuting in. I’ve gotten lots of requests to show more flat shoes and absolutely love these – if you’re in between sizes, I’d suggest going half a size up due to the narrower fit and pointy toe.
For a more formal meeting with my clients’ CFO or their board, I’ve styled these heels with an outfit that is conservative and professional, but still with feminine details that are true to my style…
You can’t go wrong with solid closed-toe pumps, but I chose a thin herringbone pattern which appears all grey from afar (thus is still easy to style) and offers a little interesting texture closer up. I found sizing to be true to size with no slippage for narrow feet.
For after-work networking with fellow bloggers, I’ve paired these scalloped-top booties with a flared skirt and knotted blouse for a fun, casual look that’s a welcome change from office attire.
You guys know I love my ankle boots and I definitely think they can be flattering even on shorter legs. Look for ones with a dip down the middle which can be more lengthening than those cut straight across, or pair with dark tights or skinny denim to create a seamless leg line.
