I bought these Jeffrey Campbell wedges in February, because I knew they’d sell out before the weather got warm and they were just a gorgeous shoe. I ordered them online and found them to be even more fabulous in person they were online. The perforated suede really is soft and luxurious and they’re worth every penny I spent on them BUT I was leery about wearing them to work.
My job has a way more conservative dress code than I’ve had to follow in years. No denim of any kind – ever. If our CEO had his way, the men would wear suits and ties everyday. I know my bold color choices stand out from the rest (hello lilac nail polish and a bright green dress) but I’m always dressed professionally. I’ll wear a shift dress but it might be turquoise. My footwear choices can be considered by some, a bit wild.
I decided today that I would bite the bullet. My dress is blue and cream and was screaming for a great pop of red to liven it up (I would’ve taken pics of the entire ensemble but I can’t seem to find the remote control to my camera) and the wedges were calling my name. So I gave in…
And I’ve gotten rave reviews all morning long. So perhaps I was psyching myself out? I’m going to try my best not to do that and wear what I love with confidence, but that’s always easier said that done.
So tell me, what are you too afraid to wear at work?
