It's hard to see in the pictures, but my pants are actually gingham. The inspiration for this outfit came from the sales guy at the Gap this weekend. He wore a grey vest over a checked shirt with a shiny grey tie and I loved it! I came home and immediately pulled this out to try to mimic that look. The shiny shoes were my inspiration and I gotta tell you, you don't see a lot of shiny silver shoes when you work in accounting!
