Pencils Skirts and Stairs

This summer, I got into a habit of wearing skirts to work.  I find skirts to be more comfortable than pants.  I hope to wear skirts for a little bit longer into the colder season by pairing with boots and leggings.  My office job prompts for Business Professional and/or Business Casual depending on the location and the meetings we have.  Therefore, I have several pencil skirts.  I love the look of pencils skirts and they truly fit my body the best.

Frequently throughout the week, I need to go to 2-3 floors above me.  I feel like taking the elevator is a waste when I have two perfectly good feet.  I usually opt for the stairs if I need to go up or down 5 or less flights.  I guess this is my way to "green" and get a little bit of exercise during the day.

I came to the realization this week that pencil skirts do not work with stairs!  Add boots to the equation and you might as well not go anywhere!  I actually had to hike my skirt up to even be able to go up the stairs.  Luckily, no one else was in the stairwell, or I would have been really embarrassed.

Ok, this just made me laugh because I'm always finding that anything but the most comfortable clothes leads me to want to stop walking. :P

Since I work from home (jeans or jammy pants!), I think a lot of my fashion mishaps come from trying to wear nice clothes and then breastfeed in public. A lot of nice clothes (fitted blouses, for instance) don't really work well with that aim in mind. Luckily, I've mostly learned my lesson on that one.
