New striped shoes + business casual

Another business casual look with ankle pants + a cardigan (also see here). If it ain’t broke…

The real standout of this simple work look for me is my shoe choice. This is a new pair of shoes — more details in my upcoming closet adventures post later this week — and I ♥ them! They’re so me, aren’t they?

  • Comfortable? Check!
  • Cute pattern? Check!
  • Rounded toe? Check!

I wanted to play off the gold buckles on the shoes, so here’s a close-up of the gold jewelry I chose as accessories:

I don’t have much to add except that I felt very me in this simple and comfortable outfit. That’s always a good thing!

Linking up with these lovely ladies!

      I’m lucky that my work environment is also pretty casual, but I do like to look “put together” as much as I can. I wore this on a day I needed to make a presentation, and I wanted to look put together but also super comfortable to help de-stress that bit of my day. 🙂

    Love the striped shoes and love all the blues together. You look wonderful!

    P.S. I miss you too. I was totally thinking about you the other day and was like, darn it, I wish I could see Jen!

    What a great look. Oh my gosh those striped flats are adorable, they finish this look off perfect. I’d love to have a striped pair of flats, closest I have are these polka dot Tory’s

    Great post, thanks for sharing this look.
