Building a Work Shoe Wardrobe

I've recently had a few readers ask about what kind of shoes I have in my work shoe wardrobe and whether I spend entire days in high heels. Short answer: I only spend the day in heels if I absolutely have to--so most days, I wear both heels and flats. (Very) long answer: settle in with some popcorn and get ready to go through several years' worth of wardrobe building. I'll be discussing all the shoes pictured above--these are all actual shoes I own and wear to work (the photos are all clickable links).

A little background: I am a full-time lawyer who goes to court 1-5 days a week. Whenever I go to court, I'm dressed "business formal," although the particular court I usually work in has a somewhat relaxed version of business formal, so there's a little leeway for bolder fashion choices. I always wear a jacket and closed-toe shoes in court.

The environment in my office is more relaxed. If I don't have any meetings or court appearances, I am able to wear nice jeans or business casual attire. Unless I have clients coming in, I am usually in flats at my office to try to save my feet a little. Read the whole breakdown after the jump!

Casual Neutrals

Long cardi + destroyed denim + Chloe Drew bag

Chloe Medium Drew Bag

Long cardigan + J Brand jeans + Chloe medium Drew
Long Cardigan: Leith (no longer available, but this one is a good substitute in regular + petite sizing)
Denim: J Brand | Tee: Topshop | Shoes: Manolo Blahnik
Bag: Chloe (available at Nordstrom or Farfetch, where I got mine)
Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Necklaces: Roberto Coin, Gorjana c/o | Watch: The Horse

We had such gorgeous weather in Denver this past weekend. It was perfect for a coatless afternoon stroll and some patio drinks (of course, it got pretty chilly as soon as the sun started to go down). I jumped at the opportunity to wear this long cardigan again (see how I styled it last here). Its length makes it look awkward with a winter coat over it, so it hasn't gotten much wear outside the house while the weather has been colder.

I added this pretty Chloe bag to my closet last week, and I love how it instantly elevates any outfit I wear with it. Ihe neutral gray color is seasonless and easy to pair with pretty much anything. I went back and forth a bit before settling on the medium size, which is just right for my long wallet plus my other essentials. I'm thinking of doing a full review like I did for my Pashli--let me know if you're interested in seeing one!

Thanks for reading! Hope you're having a great week!
