White sweater with floral pants and ankle strap wedges

Shoe Emergency

Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall

You guys remember these navy suede shoes? The ones I walked all over Chicago to find? Well, I had them on yesterday when some jackass couldn’t wait for me to finish my turn in the revolving metal door at the train station and pushed it into the back of my foot. Sadly, it caused the ankle strap of my right shoe to rip away from the heel.

Thankfully, it’s a clean tear so I think it can be fixed. However, in the mean time I was left with a shoe I couldn’t walk in and only my company-branded flip-flops at my desk. And the End of Summer Bash fundraiser at Hub 51 to attend after work.

All of which added up to an emergency trip to DSW on my lunch break. And finding these Nine West ankle strap wedge heels on the clearance rack for $20.

In fact, the shoes ended up being my favorite part of this outfit. I mean, I love the pants but the sweater with them just wasn’t what I had envisioned. I wanted a more slouchy look and this one is just a bit too square.  I also felt that by adding the brown shoes instead of my original navy ones that I needed to balance it out with a different necklace. I feel like this one from Bauble Bar would be perfect! And it’s currently only $20. Be still my wallet.

But, since I was attending an end of summer party I wanted to give a nod to both summer and fall. The white and printed pants for summer and the darker closed-toed shoes for fall seemed to fit the bill.  And now I have a new pair of brown heels.

    Oh man, what a bummer about your shoes! That’s great that you think they’ll be able to be fixed without too much trouble, but it still sucks that it happened 🙁 Thank goodness for DSW, though haha. I guess if nothing else that was a pretty great reason to justify buying new shoes.

      Agreed on the denim jacket! I may try this sweater one more time with black pants or jeans and the denim jacket. I’m not in love with the sweater, though, so it will probably go in the donate or sell pile soon.
