During Angie's reality versus fantasy challenge, I discovered that my main fantasy is being able to wear my pumps more often. They just don't seem to fit my daily life. One suggestion I took to heart is that I could wear the pumps out to dinner or for part of my day.

I tried it out today. The outfit I wore to work featured my trusty harem pants and snake-print sneakers, both of which worked great for biking to work. Afterward, I came home and put on my pumps to go out to the pub with DH for dinner. Not a fancy place, but I felt casual enough in the outfit with my chic but subdued black pumps.

Thanks to Angie for the enlightening challenge, and to everyone here for the wonderful suggestions!

The outfits:
1-3 (worn out to dinner): black harem pants (Eileen Fisher); black and white lacy print sweatshirt (made by me); teal short trench (Ambition); black and brown snake print cross-body bag (Aimee Kestenberg); black d'Orsay pumps (Vince, Claire).

4-6 (worn to work): same outfit, with black and white snake-print sneakers (Mephisto, Yael) instead of the pumps.

Thanks for looking and I welcome your suggestions and thoughts!
