I've always struggled with workwear. Really what I struggled with, or try so hard to avoid, is the idea of a kind of uniform. I could never be the kind of person who wakes up every morning, puts on the same suit and black pumps, and is set to go. For years this meant I avoided suits, pencil skirts, and button downs like the plague, but all that has changed as I've learned that just because these items tend to inspire one uniform look, that doesn't mean I have to abide by it.
Along with this newfound appreciation for classic workwear has come a love of staple shoes, investment pieces to last for years. But, of course, just because they're fit for even the stodgiest of offices doesn't mean they can't have touches of fun...
