I had a bunch of "firsts" this week at work, including, among other things, doing most of a competency hearing with my boss. It was the first time I've cross-examined doctors, and the 2nd time I've done cross-examination in a courtroom, so that was fun. I wore this outfit on a day I didn't have to go to court because I just felt the camel color and brown pants combo was too casual for court at this point. Maybe I'll change my mind in a few months. I haven't worn this shirt in forever - This shirt is one of the first "work shirts" I bought when I was in college in 2008. It's survived the Goodwill pile a few times, mostly because at the end of the day it's just a semi-dressy plain white shirt. I absolutely hate the ruffles though - I have to use a flat iron to iron them out because it's the only thing small enough to maneuver on the ruffles. I also haven't worn these pants in forever. It's a shame I don't wear them more often because they are pretty flattering on and can be worn with a few colors (I'm already planning for my burgundy blazer in the future). Any thoughts on how you'd wear brown striped pants for work?
