While I’ve been back in the office since June of last year, many of you are now finding yourselves heading back into the office for the first time during the pandemic. After spending months in leisurewear or business attire on the top and yoga pants on the bottom, it’s time to start thinking about workwear once again. Since our workplace has a casual dress code in the place, we are allowed to wear denim into the office, and these sailor jeans from Ann Taylor that I picked up in late 2019, finally had a chance to make their debut for this look.
Since office buildings tend to be on the chilly side, especially if your cubicle is placed under a large air vent, it’s important to think of an outfit that works for both the warmer temperatures outside as well as the much cooler temperatures indoors.
My top is also an older piece from LOFT, although I’ll share a few of their current pieces that have a similar feel to them. Having a few sleeveless blousy tops that can be paired with blazers or sweaters is always something you need to have in your wardrobe if you go into a traditional office setting during the week.
For my jewelry I kept things simple with my favorite Rays of Hope Locket from Bryan Anthonys, I will link both this locket and one from Gorjana at a similar price point, and a simple gold watch from Fossil. I’ve always worn Fossil watches since I saved up for my first one just out of high school, and this was my first gold-toned watch. I made the switch from wearing mostly sterling silver to wearing pretty much only gold jewelry once I reached my 30’s.
As for my shoes, I could have easily gone with a heel (I adore The Heel from Margaux and they are one of the only comfortable pumps that I’ve ever owned, and I’ve had quite a few) but I decided to keep with a distinctly summery vibe with The City Sandal also from Margaux. I have the sandal in Platinum, which as you can see it looks gold in most lights (both fluorescent and in natural light.)
If you’re looking for a sandal that will give you a bit of height and your feet will be just as comfortable at the end of a long workday (and a commute too!) then these sandals are definitely something you should consider.
About The City Sandal
No matter what your plans are for the day, The City Sandal has just the right height for walking around in absolute comfort. The shoe features an embossed calf leather upper and leather lining, 5mm of plush foam padding for added comfort and with the 2.5-inch heel, it gives you just the right amount of height.
As far as fit I found that my normal size (6 US/36 EU) in Medium fit true to size but it’s worth asking one of the shoe experts that are available in the chat box (or scheduling a virtual appointment) to make sure you’re ordering the correct size for you. Also, with free shipping and returns you don’t have to worry about it if the fit isn’t perfect, just sent them back and order another size!
