I've never worn Cords to work ever - not because I don't like them but because I've always thought that they looked casual. And of course, it didn't help any this morning, as I was dressing for work, when my husband said, "Are those brown jeans you're wearing to work?"
Well, Honey, for your information, firstly, they are not brown my foolish husband, they are Caramel. Secondly, they're not jeans. They're cords. Of course, he looks at me as if I've suddenly sprouted 2 heads and was speaking completely in jibberish.
I don't think he got it at all... but it really didn't matter what he thought because I was going to be looking stylish yet professional in my new Caramel Cords. To dress up my cords and Candy Tee, I don my Herringbone Ecole Jacket, the crystal ball necklace plus the Ann Taylor Heart Pendant Necklace (without the Heart - that is) and a pair of Metallic Burnish Gold Pointy Heel pumps from Nine West.
Personally, I think the look is dressy and professional and I certainly feel that I can get away with a look like this in an office setting. What do you think? Is this business enough for a Manager? Obviously my husband begs to differ. But I would love to hear your thoughts.
