I commend the New Yorkers who go about their days in three-inch heels and mini skirts. I am certainly not one of them. Now that lower heels and loose-fitting bottoms are moving towards the peak of the trend curve, I'm using every opportunity to keep comfortable in my everyday outfits.
Building my work wardrobe has been my primary shopping focus lately, and for me that means finding the perfect balance between staying polished and keeping cozy. Especially with the intensely blasted A/C in most office buildings, I am not opposed to keeping those winter knits around for just a little longer. This Her Velvet Vase knit is an especially versatile piece to style, though it holds its own with a high neck and rounded sleeves. Along with girlfriend jeans and a pair of low-heeled sueded pumps, I'm taking on those casual Fridays with corporate-friendly comfort.
