Blue sandals waiting in the closet
I have bought these shoes many years ago and have worn them maybe once since then. The leather even started to crease!
This is sad because the sandals are very cute and feminine. I wonder why I left them in the cupboard for so long. I was a little worried about the heel I guess; it is made from leather and could get a scratch. The shoes are blue, not the most common color in my closet. Another reason could be that they are not the most comfortable shoes (though I have less comfortable ones that I have worn more often).
I am happy that the 365 day challenge obliges me to look through my closet and make the best use of what I have.
Today I am wearing white socks and blue sandals for work
Another summer is gone without having worn the shoes. Then I will have to wear the shoes in autumn! I wear them with white socks to match the white blouse and belt. To show that I wear socks and not tights I push the socks down a little.
Length and type of the jeans
My legs would appear longer if I would wear jeans with longer pant legs. On the other side, neither the nice shoes would be visible with longer jeans, nor the sock-sandal effect. This time I decided against long legs and for the shoes.
This type of jeans is too casual for most business situations. It has a lighter washing! Usually I would not wear jeans at the workplace, especially not a pair with a washing. But with this client, jeans with a washing are ok.
Clothes and shoes
- Blue sandals: BCBG Max Azria, bought at an outlet in Chicago
- Blue jeans: bought at a flea market in Paris
- White shirt: Olymp
- White belt: Tommy Hilfiger
- Blazer: No Name, it does not even have a tag, no brand tag, no fabric tag! I honestly do not remember where I bought it..
Workshop at a client, not standing as much as in other workshops, so I can wear a higher heel!
