I am freelance. I have no office clothes anymore. Meetings are usually with clients I know and I would wear, for example, black mini with opaques and ankle boots and a jumper.
Tomorrow I have to meet and impress a new head honcho type at one of my clients offices. I had planned to wear long wide leg grey tweed tailored trousers, black jumper and medium heel black mary jane shoes peeping out.
Sadly I had planned to buy the shoes and trousers today and got bogged down in work instead I have had a big try on and am left with the following options:
Option 1: Navy midi tube skirt, nude tights, Navy suede mary-jane wedge heels and a grey long sleeved or grey ribbed half sleeve jumper.
Option 2: Black midi length full skirt with nude tights, pointy black stilettos and a black or grey long sleeve jumper or grey ribbed half sleeve jumper.
Which is better? I wish I had trousers but I literally only have jeans and that is not going to be smart enough - aaaargh!
Thanks Remus I have black suede heeled ankle boots, two pairs of black knee boots so I could def try them with the black skirt and see if that works.
I feel OK in either outfit I think, having not met this guy before I just want to come over as professional (not sexy or too casual) and trousers would have been perfect! Think i'll see how i feel in the morning. I'm prob overthinking it
