This past month, I had the experience of jury duty. The case went on longer than expected [Days expected: 7]. So, of course my outfits had to accommodate a court room that might as well have been a refrigerator and metal detectors; you couldn’t wear shoes unless they were sneakers, and the only time I wear sneakers is to the gym or running, and chucks just didn’t go with anything.
Downtown Houston has a tunnel system whenever there is inclement weather which prevents outside walking, but whoever said the tunnel connected to the courthouse parking garage was a “shortcut” to the courthouse was full of crap. I was usually the girl making a mad dash while carrying my Mary Nichols tote on one arm and my Botkier purse in the other. That’s the other reason why I stopped wearing heels.
