In my professional life, I’ve developed a bit of a uniform for when I’m visiting schools/churches/”clients”. It’s not super clever or unique – I just wear black. But, maybe my reasons for doing so are a little more distinctive.

Of course, the primary reason I wear black is pretty obvious: it’s professional. Also, it’s really easy, and as we’ve established on multiple occasions, I’m the worst packer ever, so black reduces the effort I have to put into the work side of my suitcase (I really do divide it that way; work clothes in one half, fun clothes in the other).

But, I also love black because it allows me to mix and match all of my shoes and accessories and come up with different looks that suit whatever audience I’m meeting, while still showcasing my personality.

In this outfit, I was meeting with someone for work, so I wore jewelry from Rahab’s Rope, of course. The leopard print shoes are mine and I love them.
