Gray Days

Most days at work I lean toward the "casual" of business casual, especially in the summer, but I knew would be taking pictures at a press conference, and seen by some of the more prominent members of the community, so I needed to dress up a bit more.

So, I brushed off my gray pencil skirt and kept my accessories a bit more low key. I didn't wear heels or a suit jacket. I know I should have, it's much more professional, but it's sooo hot and humid in Florida and I knew I was going to be on my feet all day - I just couldn't bring myself to do it. It doesn't look too bad, right?

As little as a year ago, I would have worn gray flats/heels to match my pencil skirt, but I'm loving the less matchy-matchy look. Plus, the neutral shoe helps to elongate the leg,which the outfit needs, especially since I'm wearing flats.

So here I am in my semi-professional glory.
