One of my favourite things to do is layer basics with fancy accessories and jackets. For days when I don't have any client meetings or formal events, I opt for comfy shoes, like these VANS loafers, casual skinny pants, a blazer and nice handbag for an overall polished outfit.
I hosted a big event yesterday with the team at Dx3 and absolutely regretted not having my loafers with me to wear during down time or after the guests had left. If you have space to keep comfy shoes to switch to when you're walking distances or tired of painful heels/boots, bring them along! I came home with major blisters on my feet and achy heels + toes; definitely not a pretty look!
