Is it a total no-no? There's this skirt that I want to buy for my new job:
It has images of sailboats (ships?) inside the pleats, it's so cute. But I'm torn on shoes, my friend said just wear black shoes but the skirt is navy blue. If I wore it with a blue cardigan set, shouldn't I wear blue pumps or something?
Also, this is kind of a totally different question but for this new job I guess some of the people that interviewed me were concerned that I didn't wear a suit. I understand that some of their clients will expect me in a suit, but do I seriously have to wear one everyday? Would this skirt with a cardigan set be acceptable? I always thought I had a good idea of what "professional" dress was, but now I'm concerned I don't. I don't want to go out and buy these nice skirts and sweater sets if I should only be wearing suits.
Anyway, you guys always offer the best advice...so advise away!
