Last week I bought this skirt at Old Navy and immediately fell in love. It's super comfortable, and also very cute. It's a little more polished and dressy than the other knit skirts I have which was also a bonus. After wearing it a couple of times I started thinking about how I'd like another one and wondering when it might go on sale at ON.
My sewing bug has come back with a vengeance and after making some curtains and a big stack of baby bibs I wanted to do something a bit more challenging. As I was going through my craft stuff looking for a snap setter (to put snaps on the aforementioned bibs) I found a big length of jersey I bought a while ago and realized I could totally use it to make a skirt. I drafted a pattern from my skirt (after I realized that the front and back are not quite identical), cut it out, and sewed it up in about an hour and a half last night.

While I don't think I'll be nominated for What Not to Wear anytime soon (I hope), I'm not exactly the most fashionable person out there. I have things I like to wear, and I wear them. I don't really follow a lot of trends or always know what is in style.
What I do know about, though, are comfortable shoes. I love comfortable shoes, especially ones that are work appropriate - i.e. closed toed and somewhat dressy. Even though I constantly hear people say that their high heels are comfortable, I cannot believe that any high heels could stand the test of a 12 hour day walking around a hospital floor. Thus all my shoes are flats. Before I get into all my favorites, I will say up front that I have learned that the most comfortable shoes are pricey. Well-made = comfortable = pricey, at least usually. I have figured out that if I want my feet (and me!) to be happy during the day, then I have to spend a little more. But well made shoes also last a really long time.
