I rarely get out these days, however on those occasions I do venture out- it is normally for one of the following reasons:
- Bank Visit
- Eye Appointment
- Visits to my Business Address
- Jury Duty
- State Renewals of Business Registration or Driver's License
- Business Appointment/Meeting
I run my small business [QiSoftware] from home and take advantage of the following services to minimize the need for travel:
- Verizon FiOS (Internet, Land Lines, Television, Cell Phone)
- Skype (Business Line & Video Conferencing)
- Online Business Banking & Bill Paying
That said, when I do go out- I am more casual than I used to be. There are several reasons for this, including my closet is filled with sixes and eights that need dry cleaning when worn [and a smaller me], and I simply do not need the more formal conservative suits I used to wear for most of the things I do outside of the house- these days.
I even do most of my shopping online. I love Amazon and also maintain several online stores of things I like:
So what do I wear these days when I do go out? Mostly, slacks with heels, some sort of blouse or sweater, and depending on the season- outer wear. This is a far cry from the stockings, suits [not pant suits] and pumps I used to wear all the time.
Around the house? I wear sweats, leggings or black gym shorts [summer] with tee shirts.
These days, I buy a new pair of shoes maybe once a year, whereas in the past, because I was hard on my heels, maybe once per month. I loved black suede pumps with soft leather.
Today my black suede pumps have been replaced by footwear similar to these NineWest Fabric Boots I purchased last month at an out of season price.
The size a little big, however with thick socks they will work.
I have any number of sweaters, short coats and blazers I can pair with the boots and excited about what I will be able to do next fall, when they will be in season.
The other order [shown in the illustration] last month? I will discuss in a later post.
