Heels – Lanvin
Purse – Celine (my other top work-tote picks are here and here)

I have permanent bruises and dents on my shins from running down brick stairs and falling 4 years ago (don’t try it at home, my friends!).  My choice in clothing was partly to blame: my high heel got trapped in the cuff of my trousers and…well…you can imagine what happens when you combine momentum with locked-up feet. 

I can’t help but look suspiciously at cuffed, wide-leg trousers now, which is why I prefer to go the other route, displaying my bruises carelessly and unapologetically in skirts, dresses and shorts!  Don’t mind if I do! 🙂

Taking the day off for a nice long weekend! Happy Friday!
