Vertical Stripes

I decided to wear my vertically striped men's button-down to work, so i paired it with some tailored cropped pants from Anthropologie. I was definitely very comfortable today. Which came in very handy because i sat in traffic for two hours before arriving at school.
A few readers have mentioned or rather asked me how comfortable my shoes are, with questions like " do you really wear your heels all day? " My answer is yes for 2 reasons: the first is because i actually run in each of my shoes (in the shoe store) before i buy them; and yes, i do embarass my shopping partners from time to time because i prance around and jump in my heels to assure that they will not cut into my feet 5-10 mins of wearing them. Secondly, i have an office job that allows me to stay off my feet most of the time. And these shoes especially, happen to be the most comfortable pair of heels i own.
