Necklace: The Limited

Ring: New York & Company

Um, yeah. So not too happy about today's 'look', if you can even call it that. I learned a very important lesson last night - I have no work pants that can be worn with flats. None.

You see, I like love am obsessed with heels - the higher, the better in my opinion. I only wear flats with denim or shorts (and, rarely, with a dress). In light of this, I have two sets of jeans: regular (for heels) and short (for flats).

Not so, the work pants! I had a field trip at work today, visiting several sites that my new company has built recently. Definitely not high heel terrain. But I also had to stay business casual because we had some other meetings with vendors while we were out, so today's outfit had to be:
1. business casual
2. pants
3. comfortable flats

I tried on every single pair of dress slacks in my closet and not a one could be worn with flats. Not even close. These khakis were the closest thing I could find, and even these aren't worn with flats in the technical sense - I'm wearing 2 inch wedges! I rarely ever wear khakis; I just don't care for them much. So I kept things basic and added a fun necklace. I felt blah all day and not at all like myself. Boo.

Note to self: Buy basic black dress slacks in short length soon.

Even when you say that you don't feel you look good, you still look great. I don't like khakis on myself either.

I FEEL YOU. I hate that pants don't magically adjust themselves for our shoes. Maybe somebody could invent that and make us a lot happier.

You still looked cute, by the way.
