Since I don't have (free) laundry facilities at my apartment, I usually take my things over to The Writer's to wash every other weekend or so. I always like my outfits the first week better, haha. This is the second week. Today, I decided to be daring and give my new leopard print shoes a day out. I'd bought them a while ago and hadn't worn them because I was still getting a feel for the office dress code. By now, I've accepted that I will probably be the most "dressed-up" one there and I'm ok with that.
I rarely wear pants to work, partially due to the fact that I don't own work appropriate pants in colors other than black and black pinstripe. I like looking feminine and love almost nothing more than a pencil skirt. Every working woman/any woman with style should own one. They're polished, yet sexy, professional, yet feminine. Anyways, I didn't wear a pencil skirt today, so I'll quit talking about them, for now. I figured wearing the leopard pumps with pants that would partially hide them would be a good way to ease an otherwise in-your-face shoe into the workplace. Also, today was predicted to have a high of 45 degrees Farenheit, so I didn't mind having my legs a little more covered up. I layered a tank underneath the sleeveless top, as well, for some extra warmth and coverage. There's something about leopard that just begs to be worn with red and khaki. Maybe its the obvious choice, but since I'm a little bit of a newbie with prints, I'm sticking to it.
