On Friday I have to fly out of town to take depositions preceded by a scene inspection. The scene inspection is on a farm--out in the fields.
This presents a fashion dilemma. 1) I need to look like a lawyer; 2) I need to be dressed to hike across potentially muddy fields; and 3) I need shoes that aren't a royal PITA to deal with in the airport security line.
My work attire consists mostly of wide leg pants and stiletto heels--definitely not gonna work.
My preference would be to wear jeans with boots and a jacket. I might go this route if my jeans looked halfway decent, but they are all getting pretty worn and I have had no luck finding new jeans that fit well. Then there is the issue of wearing boots and getting through the airport.
I do have a pair of ankle boots, but they have an unattractive square toe that I think went in and out of style about two years ago. I suppose I could pair them with a pair of basic brown pants and make it work--I'm just not lovin' the idea. But it's better than looking like an idiot and ruining shoes that I love.
Maybe karma is telling me I need to go buy new shoes.
By the way, I am lusting over these shoes, but I just cannot justify coughing up the $328 for them:
