Classic + comfy | Blazer with jeans + striped canvas flats

After my big day that ended with the tenure vote, as detailed yesterday, I gotta admit, I was ready to take off my heels. I wore padded insoles with my gorgeous Fluevog heels, so my feet weren’t actually doing too bad — but ANY day that involves 14 straight hours in heels (yep, 7 a.m. through 9 p.m.) is going to make itself felt on the feet.

So the next day, it felt like a perfect opportunity to try out my new “city sneaks” that I picked up at the end-of-year sale at Payless, as detailed here in my January budget post. I wanted to still look professional, but also comfortable, so I paired my striped canvas flats with boot-cut jeans and a classic black blazer.

We were able to take pics after work, and I spied one of the neighborhood cats, Cambridge, out and about. So of course photo opportunity! Cambridge is such a photo-bombing cutie! I also like that in the pic below, you can see the headband I wore. You can see a better closeup of the headband here in the post.

And if you’re a longtime reader (thank you), you might be wondering if you’ve seen this outfit before. And YES, I am totally remixing this classic, comfy combo, last seen here in 2013. What a difference a change in hairstyle and shoes makes!

    A nice casual look after your big day; I like it! 🙂 You know Jen, if you, Stephanie, and Salazar earn your respective tenures, and I reach my 10 year anniversary this November, we should all celebrate. Not sure what we could do but we should at least treat ourselves to something that we like!
    And I have reason to celebrate now because I just started a new job at the library this week! And I am loving it!
